Do the Bell hop

As you all know - the release of the exclusive Elisabeth Bell images for SCACD takes place tomorrow. Make sure that you get your hands on these cuties. Mine arrived today and I was so excited to ink them up right away. They are adorable, cute, funky, wonderful, stunning....well the list could be long. I can't show you all of them here - of course - but if you want to join me for a blog-hop - then you get to see a lot of them and of course I will have a new card for you to show tomorrow :-)

I got to display Danni - Danni loves butterflies and as a coincidence - that's something our DT member Danni does our sweet Susana decided to name this image after her - I think that is so super sweet and just like our Susana! This cute Danni has wings - but I wanted to show you what she looks like without them - just so that you know how useful she is with or without wings.

Inked her with Memento Rich Cocoa - love that since it gives the images a soft look.
Coloured her with my copics added some stickles and used my new White Inkssential pen for highlights.
I used my new DPs from Basic Grey - Urban Prarie - love them as well and especially this one - since it has butterflies on (right Danni?? :-). Added some Bella Baubles and a heart shaped charm. Cut out matching flowers with my flower punches and added spacers in the centers.
Used the Limeade Ribbon and addes some scrap from the DP.
Sentiment is a Susanament and I decided to use "Just because" - and that's for Danni my sweet DT friend - Just because of you sweetie - you inspired me to make this butterfly card.
I hope you like the new images as much as I do and now - go on our little blog hop - Please start at our talented Suzanne's blog.

Thank you also for your very sweet b'day wishes for Isac. He had a wonderful time. I'm totally exhausted after all the cooking and baking - so today I am just focusing on colouring these new cuties.
