Dig Bells February Blog Hop

FEBRUARY BLOG HOP......... blog hop, little best friends

Hello everyone!!

It is Blog hop time with this month's *NEW* digi !!

It's all about Summer time fun!!
I think that we are all sick of the winter time snow and ice. So on that note I hope you will enjoy all of the refreshing summer time cards that the DT/GDT have to show you with this fun new digi.

Let's welcome ...............
** Little Best Friend's**
to the Elisabeth Bell Digi Collection

I made a fabric topiary and added a tag using the "Little Best Friends" digital image. Because each fabric flower is backed in felt, I had to cut them out by hand. My hands ached for a day after making this. It practically tripled in weight from all the pins and buttons. Now sooner had I finished my daughter snagged it and put it in her room. Easy come, easy go:). I colored my image with Copics and added felt flowers, buttons, and ribbon.

NOW isn't that cute!!!!!!!!

Mel Jen's New Release

This week's challenge at MelJens is to make a Birthday Card. I used two of MelJens new images, called "Birthday Cake Mouse" and "Stitched Celebration". I colored them with Copic Markers. I used DP from Cosmo Cricket and cardstock from PTI. I added dimentionals, Stickles, buttons and ric rac.

Here is a confession.....I love Stickles. They make me happy. The colors and the sparkliness. My daughter and I once improved her geography project by outlining the countries in Stickles. Loving them may indeed be genetic.

I have to say this was a difficult card to make. It was super fun to color and I got inspiration from the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge, Stamptacular Sunday and the Digital Tuesday Challenge. What made it difficult was my paper cutter. My paper cutter was a replacement from another one of the same brand that I fell in love with. When this one arrived it squeeked. It sounded like cats fighting and would often cut my paper unevenly or shred the edges. My husband borrowed it this weekend. When I went in to check on him, he was in the garage "fixing" it. My hubby is super handy and can fix almost everthing so, when he proclaimed that my paper cutter was "better than new" I could not wait to try it. The handle would not stay up and the blade was so loose that I could not cut cardstock. I now am the proud new owner of two new paper cutters. Both are functional. My hubby is the best, he really did fix the old one:) LOL:)

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.
