Hello my blog friends!:)
Today I want to wish you welcome to the "Sweet Pea Stamp's"  Blog Hop!:)
On this blog hop we will be featuring the wonderful works from Karen Middleton. Currently, all full and half sheets in the Karen Middleton Collection are discounted 25%...juuhuu!! :))

The hop starts at the Sweet Pea Stamps, so if you didn't start there, you may want to go back so you don't miss anything!:)
If you have arrived here from Dawn you are in the right place, if not, then hop over to
Sweet Pea Stamps to get started.:)
And... here's one of my two cards I made, using the adorable image from Karen Middleton's 

He's soooo cute, and look at this boys happy and lovely smile!:)). I love this little guy!;)
He is on a sheet with 3 other cute boys!:).
The "wave look a like" is from Martha Stewart -"Cherish" punch!
 I have been using the new "Maja Design" paper collection-"Skärgårdsliv", and the "sea/wave" picture behind the image is from the internet:)
The text strip at the bottom of the card is from the bottom piece of the Maja paper:)
He's been colouring with Copic's...and I'm still practising...but having a lot of fun colouring this lovely images;))
 The end of this card......
...and here is my number two, using The boy by Karen Middletons "Friends 4 ever".sheet #12, Plate #140..

.....and you can find him here..together with a sweet teenage girl:)
 I have, also here, used pattern paper from Maja Design! 
This rough boy is colored with Copic's.
"Townscape", "ruler ribbon", and "philosophy tag" are from Tim Holtz, and the brown "Raffia ribbon" is from WOC!:)
 This hansome guy is perfect for a teenage card, I think.:)
 A really hansome guy!:) 
The tag behind him is first..colouring with Distress Stain-"Walnut Stain", and embossed with "Bricked emossingfolder".
That was all from me, for this time, and It's time to continue on this hop, so from here you will be going to

Wow both of your cards are awesome!! Perfect for boys!!

Angela sa...

Oh Ellen your creations always amaze me. As your choice of details with your embellishments, papers, layouts and coloring is always perfection. I am so glad you are a part of out team. I hope you have a great weekend.

I will try my hardest to start listing my copic colors I use. Most of the time I just sit and color and never write down the colors I use. As I color them without even knowing how I am going to use the image or what papers or embellishments I am going to use with them.

Both of these cards are fabulous! I love your coloring (you definately don't look like a beginner!), and your layouts are fantastic! I love how you used a pic from the internet and then added even more with that MS punch. I really love your layout in the second. Great use of Tim's Townscape!
