A Gift of Love

Whoo Hoo, I'm home and feeling a little better.  This week has been a real roller coaster!  If you're reading this my dear friend Rufus, I'm off again for now......LOL  

This is my late post for the Elphine House Australia Challenge that went live on the 5th.  The challenge this week is Hearts and Ribbon so I chose Emma's Gift of Love Stamp, colored with Copics then added Stickles to give her a little glow and glitz.  Ya all know how much I love glitz....  The sentiment is designed by Elisabeth Bell and from Whiff of Joy.  The shaped card is cut from Go Kreate Frilly Square dies I just got a couple of weeks ago.  The edges were inked with TH Distress Ink Tattered Rose.  The DP is by DCWV from the Lace Paper Pack.  The bow was tied using the Bow Easy cause I sure can't tie one free handed.  The gift bag is one my DIL taught me to make when she was here last week. The tutorial is at SSS but I have no idea who made it.

We are sadly saying good bye to Vickie and Janneke who have taken on some new, fun, and challenging endeavors.  We will still be seeing them in Blogland and their lovely creations.

If you haven't stopped by the EHA Challenge blog, oh please do so... The team have some wonderful cards to share to help you get those creative juices flowing.  I'm in awe every time I see their lovely cards using those wonderful Elisabeth Bells stamps.

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