The Loch Ness Monster

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! With only two days left of my two week countdown to New Moon, I probably should have said this awhile ago!

**If you HAVE NOT read the entire Twilight series, PLEASE just look at my card (giggle!) and do NOT read my post! I ALWAYS put quotes in and something I may choose to quote may give away too much information!**

So, with that being said, here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC255!! Today I have decided to feature quite a rare creature indeed (although...not one of a kind!), a half-vampire, half-human child, Renesmee!!!

Today's quote comes from Breaking Dawn, which, as I mentioned before, is my personal favorite novel in the series. I LOVE when Bella realizes what Jacob calls Renesemee ("Nessie") and she gets a little...shall we say, upset?

"You nicknamed my daughter after the Loch Ness Monster?"
- Bella Cullen

To represent Renesmee, I inked up this DARLING new Ella Lollipop from Stamping Bella! I indulged in a bit of Stamping Bella now that my stamp shelf is WAY emptier! In fact...want to help me empty it even more? HERE is my list of SU! sets that I still have for sale (grin!).

I actually ordered quite a few of these Lollipops, along with some other sweetness all because of my friend, the enabler (lol) Karen Motz!! Thanks Saucy!!

I stamped Ella Lollipop in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers. All the patterned paper is Early Bird from Cosmo Cricket, and my cardstock is Classic Red from Prism. The "Renesme" stamp is from Fictionally Inspired from Artful Inkables, one of their two AWESOME Twilight sets! The AWESOME ruffled ribbon was a gift from my sweet pal Danielle Lounds, and I also added some May Arts gingham ribbon to give it a pop! I finished off my card with three Cherry Brads by American these!

That's it for me for tonight! I have a VERY special Taylored Expressions post both tomorrow and Friday, so I hope you will check back in!! Oh...and check out my fab new watermark! My sweet pal and fellow Bakers Dozen DT member, Karen Giron, created it...she has an AWESOME selection and SUPER fast service too!!

Stamps: Ella Lollipop by Stamping Bella & Fictionally Inspired by Artful Inkables
