Now on to the card. The image is colored with Copics. I used the new Viva Decor Glass Effect Gel pen on the leaves for some gloss and Ultrafine Flower Soft - Strawberry Fizz and Original Flower Soft - Sweet Pea for the flowers. The background is sponged with two different blues. The band on her dress with the ribbon has a little Stickles added for some glitz. Her shoes have a little red gem in the center. The bow was made with the Bow Easy.

Now for more fun, hop on over to Danni's blog and see her fabulous creation.

Isn't this just the most adorable image? Little Suzanne look so sweet and in her own little world coloring. She is from the Elisabeth Bell Special Edition 4 for SCACD.

This is Bubbles which is also from the Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition 4. It is stamped and colored with Copics on Kraftboard and then I put in through my cuttlebug using the puzzle diecut. I used the new Viva Decor Glass Effect Gel for the large bubble. To finish it off I sprayed the entire puzzle with Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Shimmer I am visiting my grandchildren this week in Coloroado and this is for the youngest one. She loves these little puzzles.

I made a second puzzle and put it in the mini pizza box with a box of crayons for her to color. Her brother loves these as much as she does.

This is the final result with the two puzzles and the crayons with the tag.

The DT was challenged this week with a fabulous sketch from Suzannne.

The colors on this DP by Bo Bunny are so soft and pretty. The stripes are cut and layered with black cardstock. I distressed the edges, but it doesn't show too well in the pic. I colored the image with Copics and added a little Stickles. The Swirl accent is a die cut from my stash and I just added Stickles and some little gems. The flowers are Prima and I added the roses in the center and sprayed with Tsukineko psst Shimmer Spritz - Sparkle. I love this stuff. Oh, I almost forgot - the bow is made with the most fabulous tool ever - Bow Easy. It looks like a simple card and it is, but there are alot of details. The image and the paper are perfect together.

Good Morning!! Doesn't this image remind you of yourself or your children playing dress up? I have so many pictures of my girls and grandchildren playing dress up. Even the boys play dress up as vampires, army men, etc. She would look great on a scrapbook page as an embellishment. This cute little image is "All Grown Up" from the new release Elisabeth Bell Edition #4 for SCACD. Check out all the images in this edition they are all so cute and versatile. One of my granddaughters just turned 11 - Can't believe she is all grown up. This gift is for her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MACKENZIE !!!

The DT was challenged this week to make a gift. I have had this little purse in my stash for awhile. I first painted it white and then covered with design paper. I added rhinestones and flowers with the addition of pearls. However, the pearls around her neck were made with VIVA DECOR WHITE PEARL PEN. These pens are so cool. I have been playing with them and figuring out new ways to use them. She is colored with Copics. The Prima flowers have been sprayed with the Tsukineko psst Spray - Sparkle. One spray does it. My camera didn't pick up the sparkle very well, but they really do. I used Smooch Ink - Gold for the clasp on her purse and then put a little Stickles on it. The bows in her hair also have a little Stickles. Maybe, if you zoom in the picture you can see the sparkles. Click on the picture and it will enlarge. I sponged around the edges of the tag with CTMH Baby Pink and then stamped some swirls with CTMH Daisy White ink. You can kinda see the swirls a little in the first image. I apologize for the pics, I couldn't seem to get my camera at the right angle.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Everybody Art Challenge - Make a Gift
My Time to Craft Challenge - TOOOO Cute
Papertake Weekly - Shiny, Sparkly, Special
Paperplay Challenge - Stamp and Bling
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Anything Goes

YAY!!! It's Friday. The DT was challenged this week to do an "Old Tyme Photo". I tried really hard, but just couldn't seem to get it right. However, I absolutely love this image. I am an animal lover and any image with a dog especially melts my heart. This stamp is "Me and My Buddy" from the new Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition #4 for SCACD. This release is probably my favorite so far. It has so many different stamps for different age groups that can be used in a lot of different ways.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
Stamp With Fun - Friends
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Furry Friends
Secret Crafter Saturday - Friendship
Practical Scrappers - Punches
One Stitch at a Time - Going Dotty
Cute Daisy May Challege - As You Like It

We were supposed to stay with the colors black, creme, gray, and sepia. I sorta did. I colored the image with Copics. and the paper is some that was in my stash. I made the paper lace with my MS punches. I made the bow with my Bow Easy from Close to My Heart ribbon. The flowers are Prima and the pearls were made using the new VIVA DECOR PEARL PEN.

If you missed out seeing the other fabulously creative projects from the DT, you can see them here. I don't know about you, but I love visiting other blogs and getting some new great ideas.
