sweet baby

Hi!  Happy April!  The months are definitely flying by.  And the weather here is so nice today!  So much better than the rain and thunderstorms we had some time ago.  But I know in a few days I'll be complaining that it's too hot.  Hehe.

Recently, I broke down and finally ordered the cute little elephant named Bella from Wild Rose Studio.  Just like how I did when I saw the cute penguin, Pickles last Christmas.  All of the Bella stamps are so adorable! 

I picked Bella Sleeping for this card to play along with iCopic Weekly Challenge #76 -- For a Child and used All That Scraps sketch.


Is she just the cutest little elephant ever?  She looks so soft and cuddly.  I also bought the matching Bella paper pad!

I colored the image with Copics.  I also rubbed some chalk over the flowers and for the light blue sky which may be difficult to see.  The tiny tag and sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I don't even know anyone with a baby right now to give this card too but just couldn't resist this sweet image. 

Short post today.  Thanks for reading and have a great week!

That elephant is so sweet I could cry! No wonder you got it!! That's too bad you don't have anyone to give it to right now, but I bet it would look real cute sitting on your craft table where you could see it all the time! (not that I've ever done that..he he) Awesome coloring!!!

That is the CUTEST image ever! How sweet and adorable and your coloring of this is fabulous too. I've got to check out this stamp. I do know someone with a newborn and that would be perfect for a card. TFS!
