Digi Bells

Hiya Peeps! 

It's my turn to do a Digi Bells Post!  

I wanted to make a card that completely different to the ones I usually make.  So I made a clear Acetate card with the bare minimums!  I have to admit that this isn't the most practical card ever.  

Here is my card:

Now I don't know if I used the wrong adhesive or if it's the fact that it's an easle card, but when I fold it, the top part keeps on coming loose from the bottom part!  

Enjoy your weekend!

Elisabeth Bell Monthly Challenge!

Hiya Peeps!

It's time for our monthly Elisabeth Bell World challenge!!  For this month our theme is Love! - Hearts, hearts and more hearts!  Yes, it's almost Valentine's day and it's time for all of us to feel the love!

Now I didn't create a "LOVE" in the sense of 2 people loving each other type of love.  I used Curly Locks Kiki from the Elisabeth Bell Digital collection.  This little girl is sitting there, absolutely ecstatically happy about her crafting.  I love my crafting and felt this should also qualify!

Some Coloring Fun!

Hiya Peeps!

Today, for the first time EVER!  I really took my time and colored this fun image.  It took me 3.5 hours, and I am quite happy with the result. 

I did this for The Paper Shelter DT Call.  I have already entered a card, but really wanted to showcase a image and not a card.  I picked this little girl, which has a lot of hair and plenty of detail!  I love coloring hair but have to admit that this was the first time I got curly locky type of hair to show so much depth and movement!

Here is my colored image:

For a more detailed result, click on the picture to enlarge it.


I colored her with Copics using the following colors:
Background : BG000, BG09
Skin : E000, E01, E11, R20
Hair : E30, E33, E37, E18
Dress : RV10, RV32, RV34
Ribbon & Shoes : Y11, Y15, YR24
I also used the colorless blender throughout the image

Well that's it from me!

Thank You for looking.

The new school year has started here in South Africa, and my oldest son is now in Gr 2.  You wouldn't believe the amount of books he received....and guessed who had to cover them all....  I bought the coolest covering paper for him, Pixar's Cars paper.  So fun and boyish!  And what does the school do, they send home a full A4 coloring pages that he has to color, that has to be stuck on the front of the books - ALL OF THEM!, covering almost all of the very cool looking covering paper!  


It's time for another Pixie Cottage Challenge!  As always there is two parts to the challenge!  A sketch and / or a theme... which is Embossing!

I followed the theme this week.
