Bella the Elephant...

Good Afternoon.
Hope alls well with everyone this weekend.
I am taking it easy with some crafting and blogging after a busy work week where I have just finished a 3 day computer course that well and truly gave me brain ache....
I certainly couldn't sit and work in an office staring at a computer screen all day...Very different from my usual work in the classroom with the kids.
 I have only just managed to work out photoshop!

I had to brightened them up as the afternoon light was rubbish!

 (It's not your eyesight..This looks a bit out of focus..Sorry bout that!)

Bella the Elephant with some flowers...very cute image from Wild Rose Studio...

Coloured with Promarkers, I then used my scallop circle die and my big shot and layered her up onto Lilac and Purple card.

The image and papers match and I even found a flower and glittery brad in my stash that worked quite well...I used a punch for the leaves.

I love ribbon and am lucky enough to live in a village where we have a ribbon wholesaler who attends school fairs and sells them a £1 a roll...(and one of my best friends owns a haberdashers, which also helps)

Some challenges...

Paperplay Challenges...Simply cute
Papertake Weekly...All Creatures Great and Small
Simon Says...Die Cuts/Punches
Creative Inspirations...Anything Goes

So I have left my next card on the table with some glue drying and some gorgeous cute clay roses...
