Beary Big Hugs!

Good Morning! Just popped on to post this card before i head out to Edinburgh for the day.
Cant decide quite what the weathers going to do so i better take a jacket and umbrella just in case! You know what Scottish weather is like!

Okay onto my card. I have used my very favourite image..Beary Big Hugs from Belles and whistles. I have coloured her with my promarkers.
The papers are from the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper pad which i love so its hard to cut into them! Every scrap gets kept from these papers!
The sketch for the Belles and Whistles challenge is fab and the twist is to use your fav shape on it. I have made a rosette from Kraft card stock and punched a circle of my papers and topped with a button. My flowers are from WOC and the vines cut from my Pot-Pourri Cricut Cart. The lace and gems are from my stash.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges;
Belles and Whistles - Sketch with a twist
Elisabeth Bells World -3 in a row (my row is diagonal and used Gems, Lace and Buttons
Creative card Crew - Anything Goes

Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Morning! Here we are again with another challenge for Elphine House Australia!

The challenge this week is called "You scream, I scream, we all love Ice-cream!"

Wedding Bell's! Brand New Elphine House Austraila Stamp!

Good Morning! Well it is for me and every other Scottish mum! lol The kids are now back at school!! Sean is off to his new high school, Ryan is a 3rd year and Carrie is a big P3! They looked so smart leaving this morning! I cant believe they are all growing up so fast..they years just fly by!

Anyway onto my card for today! This image is a brand new Elisabeth Bell images from Elphine House Australia which is on sale right now...Go on all you EB fans that "need" this stamp!!
Its a gorgeous image and was great to colour, i used my Promarkers. I was not sure about this card once i finished it but kind of like it now. I loved this sketch from I love Promarkers, one i will use again. It was hard to get a good photo of it without it looking like the papers had faded! My papers are from MME Lost and Found collection. I bought a ton of these papers and love them all. I have inked the edges lightly with "Old Paper" Distress inks.
I am still a bit addicted to making my own bead charms and made this one with pearl and clear beads dangling at different lengths.

There has been another 5 new stamps released along side this one. You can find them all here along with the rest of the stamps available at Elphine House Australia. They are all so adorable you will find it hard to choose which ones to buy first!

I am entering this card into the following challenges;
Belles and Whistles - Anything goes
Little Claires challenge - Wedding/Anniversary theme
Fussy and Fancy - Celebrate!! (Wedding)
Thanks for taking time to read and remember to pop over the EHA Blog for our "Fun in the Sun" challenge and we also are on facebook! Come and have a look around!
