Young Alexa and I Love You This Much - Elisabeth Bell stamps

Good afternoon to all my blog and stamping friends... I hope you're having as much fun as I am!  I've been up since 4.30am (I kid you not!), not sure what woke me, but never one to let the grass grown under her feet... I immediately got to work on a few cards so that I could share them with you.

I've organised all my stamps into see-through CD cases and I was amazed (and shocked) to see how many stamps I actually have!! (By my standards at least... as I know many of you have so much more). I was just telling my lovely friend Sandra that all 15 CD cases I received as a birthday gift have now been utilised... it helps when your friends ask you what you need when your birthday comes around...lol   I feel truly blessed to have reached this stage in my life where I can afford to have a hobby and I am really enjoying it...

I'd love to introduce you to Young Alexa, an Elisabeth Bell creation. I don't see her much in blogland, which is such a pity as she is utterly adorable...

Don't you just love my new paper by Wilson & Maclagan?  I told you in an earlier post to stick around, as I have so much more to share with you... woohooo!   You all know how I love to decorate the inside of my cards... when I have the time... so here's a side view of my card, so that you can get a peek of the inside... nothing fancy, but it makes such a difference doesn't it ?

And then we can't let Elisabeth's new digistamp sit on the shelf, so here for your and my enjoyment is I Love You This Much, which I'd like to dedicate to all my Crafty Friends, the people who visit me regularly, leave comments and make me smile each day...

I will be entering these into the Elisabeth Bell Digi DT Call.  If you'd like to try out with me, then click on the link in my sidebar to check out the details on Elisabeth's blog.  Have fun and good luck!

Tons of hugs, Sharon x

Hi Sharon. There is something wonderful about early rising, even if it is 4 am, thats what I do too. A wonderful time to craft especially with a nice hot cuppa to drink as well.
Your cards are gorgeous, beautiful images and lots of lovely papers and delicate colours.Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xxx

Hi Sharon
I am so under the weather! The flu got me and I'm in bed from Friday already! I'll be going to the doctor tomorrow.
Your cards, again, are so beautiful and soft! I love the soft colours you used.
Best Wishes
