Adorable Little Ellie

Well, my cutting back on DT's has paid off.....
I have some FREE time, actually lots of it and I LOVE it.

So I saw this cute challenge at City Crafter called
'The Elephant In The Room'
I love little 'ellies', they just speak to me!

I have a couple cute little elephant dies, but then remembered
I had purchased this stamp way back last year and never used it (NBUS).

I just love sweet...would make a wonderful baby card!

I dug in my 'orange scrap bag of 'snippets'
and came up with these pretty patterns.
Of course the one is all polka dots and I covered it up....
oh well, it still serves the purpose!!

And can you tell I only have 2 color of Gray Copics?  They are very close in color...note to self:  Buy more GRAY Copics!!

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Entering the following challenges:
City Crafter .... The Elephant In The Room
Pixie's Snippets Playground .... Snippets
Use Your Stuff .... Lace, Ribbon, or Twine
Never Before Used Stuff

Diane, this is the cutest image ever! So sweet and loving - and great for several occasions! Your gentle colors, and happy watercolor "feel" make it even happier! And a virgin stamp! imagine that! LOL I have loads of those as well. Pretty card design - as for the gray copics. Like you, I only owned a few until several months ago. I've been investing in the T's, N's, W's as well as the Cools. They are a great help in slightly shading or changing other colors to suit my needs when blending - not that I'm any good with Copics these days LOL - one of my waning abilities - but it's still fun coloring with them. You'll be happy to invest in the gray tones. Hope you enjoy a lovely day! hugs, de
