It's blog hop and sneak peek time for this fabulously fantastic Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) release of Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! If you came here by any other way than from Danni's, please make sure you go back to Suzanne's blog and start at the beginning so you're not missing anything, especially the opportunity for the Kick Butt Blog Candy Susana's offering.
Other than your children, have you ever held something in your hand and just know that it was going to be one of your most treasured possessions, that it was something that was just for you? That's how I felt when I opened my stamps for this exciting and wonderful release! You can laugh if you want and think I'm off my rocker, but when your all time favorite designer illustrates a stamp and your dear, dear friend tells you that for her, it captures what she thought you'd have been like when you were younger and names that sweet likeness after you, well, I don't know about you, but I cried. Real tears! I shook, laughed, screamed really loud and jumped up and down (both dogs thought I'd lost my marbles) and then thanked God for the blessings He's brought to me this year.
I get to design for two of the most giving, caring and inspiring people I've met in such a long time, Susana and Summer, have the pleasure of serving with some of the most talented stampers out there, have the privilege of having Suzanne Dean for a design team leader who inspires and challenges me every week and is so generous with her knowledge, talent and heart, and get to design with two very special people - Anki, who I get to design on two teams with and Danni, who I met right before I made my first blog post. Susana, you mean the world to me and I thank God every day for you and the fact that you took a chance on me. I'll never let you down. Ever. And my friend, Deb, you know how much this stamp means to me. Yes, I am truly humbled and blessed.
Now on to the release! I just want to give you a sneak peek at, well, Me! I have an Elisabeth Bell stamp named after me!!!!! If you know me, you know she's my all time favorite stamp illustrator and it's been so hard for me to keep my excitement at an acceptable level at presenting these sweet, fresh and gorgeous stamps to you. And then to find out one has my name! Well, I've been on Cloud 9 since I held these sweet things in my hands!
I'm colored with copics and have Smooch on my hair tie, heart, buttons and my toe nails! I'm carrying a bouquet of yellow and red Flower Soft with just a touch of violet in it. I adore this BasicGrey Junebug paper, and I colored the Bella Baubles and my ribbon with my bright yellow copic and added a hatpin that I love to make so much. All in all, I think I look pretty good!
In case you've missed it, here's the order for the blog hop:
