Pretty Breyer Horses in Pink

Winner at Creative Knockouts

Coffee of the Day - Bourbon Pecan (yes, I'm drinking a lot of it this fall. it is so very tasty!)


Hello all of you lovely Digi Bell fans! I'm  here to share a bit of crafty inspiration with all of you today from Elisabeth Bell's archives.

By now all of you are probably aware that I am a HUGE fan of her weekly newsletter. I urge each of you to sign up if you haven't already. Elisabeth so very kindly sends out a free image to her subscribers every weekend. can you believe that?! free!!! and they are adorable!!!


the digi I am sharing today is probably the one that got me hooked on her cuteys to begin with. it's called "Breyer Horses" and was once a rubber stamp. isn't it precious? although I am certain I say that about each and every image that lands in my mailbox. giggles!

papers are from the Basic Grey Sun Kissed collection, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and buttons are from my vintage stash. the main image die and the matting one are both by Spellbinders while the banner die is from SU!. the gorgeous horse die is a new to me one from Memory Box. isn't it great?! I sprayed the doily with granite glimmer mist. little distressed seam binding and ric rack snippets were attached with the Tim Holtz tiny stapler. sure do love that thing! :)

don't forget there is a great challenge going on over at Elisabeth's fun challenge blog. the theme is Autumn or Halloween. you could win some digis from the store!

I hope you have a most amazing weekend! now go get your craft on. ;)

Your card is just adorable. Not that I would expect anything but that from you. Hope you are doing well - well thinking of you the month of October, and meant to stop to say hi and check in on you and life has been sooo busy. I know that is a bad excuse. Just know you are in my thoughts!
