Can you believe this....

Hi again!

Can you believe this? Three days in a row I've been able to get on here and post some artwork. You know, I am the world's biggest procastinator! If I would only...well, lets not go there! I don't want to bore you.

I did these cards for my good friend, Jenn. We were ooooing and awing at the stamps online, and without Jenn knowing it, I ordered a couple (ok ok...a couple is two, I ordered three) of the cutest little stamps from Elizabeth Bell. These lil darlings are from Elizabeth's "Sweet Ebony" collection. I have several links to share with you about Elizabeth Bell and her
Sweet Nellie stamps, which I will do at the end of this post.

Here are the three cards I sent to Jenn. The stamped image on this card is called "Basket Full of Apples." Isn't she the most precious! I used papers from CTMH's "Let's Get Together" paper pack. I made the flower from gingham ribbon and a flower loom I purchased off ebay. Ribbons came from www.reasonableribbon.com.

This darling little girl stamp is called "Garden Girl. When I purchased this stamp, I was busy in my garden, trying to grow some vegetables. This year, I wasn't as successful as I have been in the past. I have a couple of pictures of Deborah and Kelli working in the garden when we first prepped the garden. I think using this little gal on the page would make for a really cute layout.

I used CTMH's "More To Adore" paper pack and CTMH's markers to color her in. The ribbon came from http://www.just4funcrafts.com/. I also used my Cuttlebug folder "Swiss Dots" and embossed the half circle. That really adds some dimension to the card.

This little cowgirl stamp name is "Giddy Up Pony" from Elizabeth Bell's Sweet Ebony Collection. When I first saw this adorable little girl, I immediately thought of my grand daughter,
Deborah, and the cowgirl hat and boots, her Popi and I gave her for Christmas last year.
I am not sure where the papers came from. I just pulled them out of my stash of scraps. The cardstock is CTMH's barn red and bamboo. I use Friskar's border punches for the borders done in black and bamboo cardstock. I made the flower with my flower loom and attached it on a chipboard flower from CTMH. I also use my Cuttlebug folder "Swiss Dots" to the background. I cut the heart out with my sizzix "Big Shot and set an eyelet in the top.

I sent some stamped images to Jenn as an RAK, and if you visit her blog, www.just4funcrafts.blogspot.com, you can see some of her artwork. Jenn is the most talented artist I have seen. I get alot of my inspiration from her.
Now back to Elizabeth Bell and the links I promised to include in this post. There is a blog for Elizabeth Bell, so click on this link, www.sugarnellie.blogspot.com to go to her blog. If you would like to see some artwork/cards using the "Sweet Ebony" stamps, click here: http://www.zhibit.org/elisabethbell/sweet-ebony-cards-2. There are pages and pages of artwork. And to view or purchase any of the "Sweet Ebony" stamps, click here: http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=47_46.
That's about it for now. If I knew how to make this links into a one word link, I would, but I haven't a clue as to how to do that. As you can tell, I am still a bit computer challenged.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed yourself and have a Terrific Tuesday!
Until next time...
Happy Scrappin'!
Inky Hugs,
