Happy Birthday Ella (A TPE Blog Hop)

It's Ella, the pink elephant's 1st birthday! And we're having a blog hop to celebrate!
You should have arrived here from Kellie's blog. If you didn't and want to follow the hop just head on over to The Pink Elephant to start from the beginning.

For the blog hop we got to go back and choose one of our favorite challenges from this past year. I am a sketch lover so I decided to work with the sketches. I actually picked two to share with you!
My first creation is a card for my great nephew's 2nd Birthday. He's a Thomas the Tank fan so I thought he'd like a Thomas card. I used the sketch from week #20. This was a pretty simple card, just cardstock, a Thomas sticker, a little fiber and some embossing. Real quick and simple card.


My 2nd creation I was inspired by Jana Eubank's Chocolate Survival Kit on Cuttlebug Challenges last week and made this chocolate box that I will be giving my hubby for Valentine's Day. I followed the sketch from week #41 to decorate the top of the box.


Here are all the goodies he'll be getting, I do hope he shares with me :)


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find lots of inspiration through the hop. To continue with the hop head on over to visit Frances Byrne's Blog
