Celebrate with Elzybell

Sorry, I'm so late with this post! It's been an ultra busy day. The first time that I saw Elzybell, I feel in love with her right away! Not only is she so... cute but having 2 DDs, I have a tendency to be partial to girl images- teeheehee! Here I decided to combine 2 Elzybell stamps to make a little tree trimming scene (this idea was completely inspired by this card on the Elzybell blog) and pair them up with Basic Gray PP. The ornaments were cut from the PP then used the Cracked Glass technique to give them the look of the glass antique ornaments that I love so much.

Well, now to help me celebrate my return to blogging (yea! new computer) and my over 5000 hits, I would like to offer up some yummy goodies! I didn't have time to take a pic of the stash but I will do that tomorrow. It does include such things as Sweet Chips Chipboard Little Folding House by Crafty Secrets (this is too cute), May Arts ribbon, Heidi Swapp distressing tool, a journal to alter and some really cool epoxy stickers to name a few things. How do you win these goodies! The winner will be randomly selected from all that leave a comment on this post between now and Thursday evening around 10pm EST (ie after Beth's kids are in bed.) If you would like, please share with me why you blog or like to check out the blogs. I guess my favorite things about blogs would have to include the friendships I have made and all the awesome inspiration (both creative and emotional) that is out there in Blog World. It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time. Take care!

Hooray! You are back. I have been so busy lately that I haven't checked any blogs much recently but here you are back with a new computer. Yeah!
I like the blog scene for so many reasons--the inspiration, the friendships, keeping in touch with my family and friends who are far away. To hard to pick just one reason. (Love your card too by the way--I love the Elzybells images as well.)
