I'm thinking & thinking...

Although this little girl is thinking of L-O-V-E, I'm trying to THINK creatively & it's not working out so well. I thought I'd post her so I can remember what it looks like when you're happy & thinking...& not wanting to pull your hair out! :)

Creative block stinks.

Have a great weekend!

For Jenn :)

When I first saw the Elzybell phone girl, I knew I wanted to make a card with two girls chatting. I'm not a big phone person, but I do love when I get to chat with my friend Jenn who lives far away.

I'm not sure I totally love this card-maybe it's the colors, or the bad crease on the fold-who knows! Oh well, my first attempt at a non-standard card...I'll keep trying!

One of my very favorites...

One of my design team assignment cards is up on today's post here. I *loved* this card when I made it-the colors, the sentiment, the hearts & the "love bug"! Hope it inspires you for Valentine's Day!

Are you having fun with all your new Elzybells?? :)

Crazy quick!

First-how sweet is she? :) Such a great image for ANY gift giving event! OK, I made & Photoshopped this card in about 20 minutes!! LOVE that-so easy. Can we discuss the love I have for A Muse 4bar note cards? Seriously-I can't get enough of them. I HIGHLY recommend adding some to your Elzybell order tomorrow!! Tomorrow!!! :)

I think this is my favorite...

image from the new release. It's just so versatile: friendship, birthday, thank you, sympathy, thinking of you, mother's day...the list is long! :) I tried to keep this one really simple- I just used a little sparkle gelly pen to highlight the flowers & her accessories & called it good. I think I might add some ribbon on the side-but I do like the colors.

I would FOR SURE add this one to your (long) list of Elzybells to purchase-can you hardly wait?!?

Froggy :)

I loved this stamp the MOMENT I saw it & I knew the "pucker up" sentiment from the Holiday release would work perfectly! Again, another really simple & easy card to make-it wouldn't take too long to whip a bunch of these out. How cute for Valentine's Day!

Hope you're still having fun looking at all the new Elzys-are you purchasing all that you've seen so far? :) Don't forget to head to the Elzybell NA blog on Friday to buy buy buy! :)

They're Here!!!

Ok...this release of Elybells is TOO CUTE! I love this little girl-simple & sweet. This card would be so easy to duplicate for a note card set, I think it's a really great card to have for any occasion.

Hope you're enjoying seeing all the sneaks...come back tomorrow for another! :)

So my favorite color is orange...

which you would normally NEVER know by looking at my cards. I would say 85% of the time I am using (or wanting to use) some shade of green...& then I add blue. I have to TELL myself, branch out-no green or blue.

I didn't listen on this card. :)

I actually like how this turned out. Juggling penguin is really cute-I've used him before & used Liquid Applique for the snowballs, but this time I tried (for the 1st time ever) flocking. I mixed it with a little glitter, which looks good in real life, but is hard to see in the photo.

At least his feet & nose are orange...I'm trying. :)

Still using Christmas stamps! :)

I'm not normally one who is able to "see" all the different ways a stamp can be used, it's a skill I'd love to get better at. However, when I realized that this little girl was PERFECT for a birthday card with all those gifts, I just omitted the Christmas tree that was riding on the back of the sled & poof - instant "new" stamp! So great for a winter birthday.

Small plug

I saw Juno yesterday...& I loved it. Then today, I'm realizing I loved it more than originally thought. I can't get it out of my head & I want it to be on DVD so I can have it for my very own & learn all the hilarious lines. It just made me happy. :)

'nuff said, homeskillet. :)

I hear

there might be some snow in our future! That usually means the weather forecasters have jinxed themselves by saying it-but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for some white stuff in the next week or so.

Even without the snow, it's clearly still wintertime, so I thought this card was appropriate. I really like this sentiment-it worked for the holidays, but still works great for the next month or so.

Hope it's not too cold wherever you are! :)
