Mel Jen's Inspiration Post and Challenge

This week's challenge at MelJens is to make a card with a Cold and Snow Theme. I used one of MelJens new images, called "Cozy Little Chickadees" and colored them with Copic Markers. I used DP from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection (very fitting, right?) and cardstock from PTI. I added dimentionals and a ribbon.

I love wild birds. I even have an African Grey Parrot named Cosmos that I have had for about ten years. I am from the West and have never seen a chickadee. However, my favorite bird of all time is a blue bird. So, I just waved my magic Copic marker and waa laa blue birds. Ain't life grand"

I followed the sketch at The Sweet Stop and I also participated in the Digital Tuesday Challenge of "Anything Goes".

Hoping you all have a wonderful safe and joyous New Year. See you in '11.

Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using these images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's Designs at the Whimsy Site.

Pixie Dust Studio Challenge

The Pixie Dust Studio Challenge this week is to make a card using silver and/or gold with extra credit for a New Year's card. I love a challenge. I chose this Rah Rah image. I colored my image with Copic Markers. I used DP from Togetherness from Cosmo Cricket and PTI cardstock. I added ribbon and a button. I participated in the Digital Tuesday challenge of creating a card with the theme of "Anything Goes". I used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge sketch as inspiration for my card. Make sure to check out all of the other DT members for inspiration. I cannot wait to see what you make for the challenge! You would be amazed what a little magic and pixie dust will do!

Elisabeth Bell..Willow with Cookies

My beautiful daughter Lauren, just turned 15 years old. I am so proud of her and all her accomplishments. She has a kind heart and I enjoy every moment I spend with her:) She has been the best Christmas present I have ever received. She is a gifted volleyball player, excells in school, and has a wonderful personality and a great sense of humor. I am often overcome with pride and have been truly blessed that she is my daughter.

My daugter loves Elisabeth Bell stamps of all kinds. I knew that an EB image would be the one to grace my daughter's 15th birthday card. I used Willow with Cookies. I chose this image from Whiff of Joy. I colored her with Copic markers and popped her up with dimentionals. I added ribbon and rhinestones. I used DP from Crate. I used the Mojo Monday sketch for inspiration.

You really can't go wrong when making a card or a layout with one of Elisabeth Bell's images:) Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and a bright and happy New Year.

Make sure to check out the Elisabeth Bell Digital Store. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next month! You can also keep up on all of the Elisabeth Bell news by checking out her facebook page:)
