Apple Blossom for EB World Challenge

Welcome to my new followers.  So glad to have you and hope find a little inspiration for creating and sharing.  Will to be around to visit you soon.

Have you seen these adorable new images from Elisabeth Bell?  OMG, I can't believe how sweet and cute they are. The Little Cottage Cuties are now exclusively available at Whimsy Stamps and you can see them all there..  There are four (4) Cottage Cuties and I am in love with them all.  Have been busy coloring them up and working on my CMC Copic Class 3 so I haven't been posting much.  I really want to finish my class cause I think I'm learning something and I hope my coloring is improving somewhat.  It definitely takes lots of practice.  Sure is cutting down on my blogging time and visiting though.  Hope to be by soon to visit.

This cutie was colored with Copics, Colorbox Chalk for the sky, and Chocolate Spica Pen for the barrel staves and faux stitching.  I used so many Copics that I forgot to write them down for you and apologize. The DP is Glitz-Pretty in Pink with a card base from SU but I don't know the color as it was in a neutral pack.  The adorable little flowers were from Janiel and the flourish die by Cheery Lynn.

Challenges:
 Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge - Stitching and Swirls
CLP - Sketch (I didn't include a sentiment so not sure it will qualify but I'm trying)
Allsorts - Say It With Flowers
Totally Paper Crafts - My Favorite Things
(EB Images, Pink, Flourishes, Flowers, Apples)

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
