Ellie Fun - DT card

Hi, and welcome!

I have had a rotten cough, and sore chest, for the past few days, so haven't done much in the way of creations.....except my Design Team card for Stretch 'n' Bubbles..........couldn't resist playin' with this little creature........let me introduce you to Ellie Birthday ....

This is how she looks in the store.....

We have twin grandchildren, Freya and Adam, who will soon be turning 3 years old, so Ellie Birthday is the perfect image to build a creation around............of course, they want a card each, and this is what I came up with..............



This is Adam's card..........simply printed out three images, different sizes, and coloured up with bright Promarkers......couldn't help glitterin' up the cute balloons....ha!
Used the banner stamp that Christina gifted to me (stamped several times), coloured up, and used teeny alphabet stickers to spell out the message (Adam is 3).......

Sorry, the DP was just an odd page that was  left over from a pad, but you know me and my memory....can't remember which pad.......lol.....

Did exactly the same for Freya's card, except used girlie colours, of course.....and I DO remember the name of the papers....ha!.....they are from Hey Birdie, by Kaisercraft.........the banner has Card Candi in the corners.......




I'll be so sad when I finally use up all those teeny alphabet stickers :(.........they are just so handy for smaller projects....and yep.......can't remember where I got them.......oops!

I really think Ellie could be used for other occasions, too.....it's so easy to use the eraser in your graphics programme (I use Serif Scrapbook), so it's not necessary to have the gift/balloon in the image....although they are really sweet!
Thanks for droppin' in on me!

  34. How did I miss this one? Slipping in my old age.
    What cute elephants. I love the way you did both male and female - you are one crafty lady who inspires so many.

    Okay, having appropriately gushed over your wonderful cards, what's this about a cough? Do I need to come over there and take care of you? Wouldn't that be a hoot... Cough any better?
