Merry Weather Blog Hop from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection

Welcome to The Digi Bell's fun blog hop to introduce you to Merry Weather, our newest addition to the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection!  It's time to reveal another beauty from the ever talented Miss Bell and are you ready for  some cuteness to come your way?  If you came to me from Pami's blog, then you're so on the right track.  If not, make sure to hop back to her blog and start there!  With all the spring weather coming there's new buds and flowers popping up everywhere and cool puddles of water that just can't be resisted!


Isn't she just a baby doll?  I'm just absolutely taken with her!  This is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketch that I followed:



Now here's a close up of this baby doll!


She's colored with copics and has some stickles added to her dress, bloomers, water, and headband. The papers are from a gorgeous My Mind's Eye pack.  I used my Clear Jelly Roll Pen to add some shine to the flowers and butterfly. These gorgeous pearl swirls are from Close To My Heart and the pearls are from Studio 112.  The flowers are handmade and the branches are a Martha Stewart punch.  The lace is from my stash.


Just a couple of side views for you.


And the full inside.  I know I said I was going to try and shake things up a bit but these papers were so gorgeous I didn't want to take anything away from them.  


I'm entering this beauty in the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Anything goes
Forever Friends - Lots of flowers
Moving Along With The Times - Spring is in the Air
Crafting For All Seasons- Spring
Inklings and Yarns - Always anything goes


Now head on over to our fearless and oh so talented leader, Lynda's blog and see what she's got in store for you.  Inspiration is sure to be waiting there for you!
