AnnaBelle March Release Day Two

Welcome back. Hope you all enjoyed yesterday's Blog Hop an all the wonderful samples of Lil Monster Gone Fishing.
Today we have another familiar character that is back again.
This time it's, Lil Belle Michelle and she's having a "Swinging" good time! (Not that kind of swinging either).
Isn't this a sweet stamp set. I have two different cards to share today using this set.

First up:For this card is chose an older TESC sketch to play with. This one is (TESC96).



For this card I went with some lovely spring pastel colors.
The card base is Certainly Celery layered with Whisper White and Apricot Appeal. I wanted the circle portion behind Michelle to resemble a tree so I embossed it using a Cuttlebug folder (Victoria) and added a punched picket fence (Martha Stewart). The Designer paper is from a packet I won on Anna Wight's Blog (Sassy and Sweet Notes)so I'm not sure what company it came from.
I colored Michelle with various Copic markers and monted her using Rectangle Nestabilitie Dies. I added a Pink Blossom and some Blossom Sprinkles (both from AnnaBelle) to complete my card.





Card #2:The card base is: Tempting Turquoise layered with Designer Paper (SU - Retired Sweet Pea) I also used Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip on this card. Michelle was again colored with Copic Markers only this time I made her a Brunette and added a paper pieced bear. The flower and twine are both from AnnaBelle Stamps and were dyed with Copic markers. I also used a Blossom Sprinkle from AnnaBelle Stamps Card #2 was based off "This card" that I saw on Lori Tecler's blog.



How the Hop works :
You will need to begin at the ABS blog if you haven't already, and follow the links to each of the DT blogs.  Leave a comment on each as you go and you will end up back at the ABS blog where you can add your name to the Inlinkz widget.  Each hop will run for only 24hrs and random winners will be chosen from the names added to the Inlinkz that have completed the hop.  The names of the winners will be posted on the AnnaBelle Stamps blog on the 17th March.
Happy Hopping!



You should have arrived here from Chupa's Blog
and from here you will head on over to Jerusha's Blog

I'm sure you will find great inspiration from all the DT members blogs. Have fun hopping and remember all these sets are available after today.
