Ellen Hutson Mix-It Up Challenge with Avery Elle

I created a card to enter into the Mix-It Up Challenge over on the Ellen Hutson blog.  This time around they are teaming up with Avery Elle.  After looking through my sets from those two companies, it was obvious that the adorable bear from All Inside would be the perfect companion to Ellie!

I used the following sets:
Essentials by Ellen:  All Inside (the cutest bear image in my opinion!), Bear Ware, Warm Fuzzies
Avery Elle: Ellie (the cutest elephant image in my opinion!)
All images were colored with Copic markers.  Also I added a bit of Wink of Stella to make the balloon sparkle.  

I had fun making this card on this icy day in the Pacific Northwest.  We're on day 8 of snow and ice.  Can't wait for spring!!!

Thank you for visiting, I truly appreciate it!

Love Letters

It's been a long while since I posted here!  I always say I'm going to do so more regularly but it doesn't seem to happen.  Working full time as a long-term substitute teacher didn't help!  So this card was a pleasure to make after a long holiday season (the crafting holiday season starts in September, right?).  I used Lawn Fawn's Love Letters set, as well as the Happy Mail dies.  How fun is that mailbox?  I had to add a brad to the little flag for a little interactiveness!  Because I don't own the coordinating dies I used the cute little bird from Let's Play.  His little heart shaped wings fit the scene. I also used the Leafy Tree Backdrop die and the grassy border.  And...here is my card:

Thank you for stopping by!
