Let's Hear It For The Boys

Been having a wonderful time coloring and playing in my little shack the past few days.  Needless to say, I've fallen in love with little Tommy -Tell Tale of Ice Cream from Elphine House Australia.  He is colored with Copics on Neenah white card stock and matted on SU Old Olive (I have no clue the name of the orange).  The DP is from the Bo Bunny Ad Lib Collection.. The additional ice cream cones are from one of Elisabeth Bell's collection for WOJ that I've also colored with Copics.  I've used a previous sketch from Wags and Whiskers that I just couldn't pass up using but too darn late to enter the challenge.....BoooHooo

The new challenge at Elphine House Australia is "Let's Hear It For The Boys".  You have until March 4th to enter using any Elisabeth Bell image from any source.  We'd love to have you play along with us and can't wait to see your amazing creation using the theme "Let's Hear It For The Boys".  Be sure you stop over at the challenge blog to see what gorgeous creations my team mates have to inspire and share with you.

Challenges I'm entering:
Gee, it seems like forever since I've chatted or shared much and tonight is a slow night so I'll share a funny story with you that I'm sure most of you can say, "yep, been there"....LOL  I had this card all done and decided it needed a couple of ice cream cones.  I just knew I had some already colored somewhere in my stash, but after looking for about an hour, no could find.  Next step was to try and find the darn stamp.  Another  almost 2 hours going through all of my EB stamps before I finally found it, then had to stamp and color them.........  Do you have any idea how many stamps I've found that haven't been inked yet????? OMG,  it's scary!  Think I may just get them all out and stamp them then there will always be plenty to color when I get in one of those coloring only moods.....LOL

That's it from me for now.  I want to thank you for stopping by to visit and hope you will come back again soon.  Have a fantastic week!

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.
