My first Charlie card

Ain't he cute? I was fortunate enough to get this sweet set from a very generous friend and I *adore* it!!! I made this for the Clear Dollar Stamps Guest Designer Challenge, which you can read about here:

I've had this designer paper, which I believe is from Crate Paper, FOREVER! Once I decided to keep the flowers white, this dp immediately came to mind and once I found it amongst all the other thousands of sheets of dp I have (please tell me I'm not alone on that one!), I knew it was perfect. The flowers on the smaller circles were stamped on white and cut out, then added to the blue circles. Charlie and the grass were colored w/ copics. The sky was watercolored and I used an SU marker for the flower centers. Such a fun layout! Thanks for stopping by!

Phunky Phresh sneak and Elzy *RELEASE DAY*

So whatcha think of my "phunky phresh" card?? Hehe, guess I was in a "phunky" mood this morning! A good card for a teenage girl, I suppose? The row of "beauty necessities" is a single stamp that I just stamped repeatedly. Everything is colored w/ SU markers, then I added some white gel pen highlights here and there. The sentiment is from a new set called *Best Things*. It's a great set of sentiments that are all in a row, but I decided to stamp it so that it'd fit in the oval. There's also piercing at the top and bottom of the black layer. Thanks for stopping by, now go check out all the new goodies available at the ELZY store!!!!

2nd day of Elzy sneaks!

What do you think of Elzy's wallpaper?? Hehe, yes, it took a bit of work, but I just HAD to paper piece this image! I love this little dinkie! I colored her "rollers" orange because they remind me of the real orange juice cans my mom used to roll her hair in! I'm talking the ones from the early 70s that were hard metal! She would sleep in them and then in the morning, take them out one by one, blow drying each section as she did it, so her hair was super straight. It's naturally very curly, but she didn't used to like wearing it that way. Ok, on to the card!
The rest of her was colored w/ either copics or SU markers. The card base was cuttlebugged. I faux stiched on the celery squares, which, by the way, match better w/ the "wallpaper" than this photo shows. The sentiment is up on dimensionals. Thanks for peeking in! Tomorrow will be the final day of peeks and also *RELEASE DAY*!!!!

1st day of Elzy sneaks!!!

Time to pamper yourselves!!! Here's a peek at the new *Rubadubdub* set that will be released on 24 June!!! Elzy decided to take some time for herself, grab a little white Zin and unwind in with a bubble bath. I've had this jar of bath salts for a while and decided to dress it up and give it to my mom for her bday next month. She could definitely use some relaxation time! The radio and tub feet were colored w/ silver and gold Koh-I-Noor metallic pencils, which are available in the Elzybell store. The tub is actually colored w/ my Smooch pearlized paint, so it's shimmery! Love it! Everything else was colored w/ SU markers. Here's a pic of the lid:

The soap, brush and shampoo bottle are separate little stamps that are also in this set. I inked them up in regal rose and stamped off once so I could use them as a background for the sentiment. Such a fun set!! Be sure and check out what the rest of the 'belles have for you to drool over!! {links are on the right----->>>>>}
Be sure and stop back tomorrow for more peeks!!!
