Essentials by Ellen September 2019 Release Blog Hop


Hello my friends!  I'm joining my EH Design Ambassadors, and a few very special guests,  for a Hop … you should have arrived from Erica's unbelievably brilliant blog!   There is so much to amaze from these ladies, I'm going to be quick as I can - there are prizes to be won!!

I did a little 'custom stamping' on The Leading Cat Lady … and added a few elements from Brandi's new Dress-Up Days stamps and coordinating dies


Here's how it all started... The Cat Lady provided the cat, her head, feet, and hand which were stamped.  I Copic colored them all, and made her a custom broomstick skirt [what else?], and then I grabbed the wings from Dress-up Days to make a fun witchy collar!  Add her pointy hat, and broom from Dress-Up Days - voila!!
 


Brandi has also provided the perfect way to add fun sentiments with Treat & Boo dies, and Boo-yah sentiments!


 

  Ready for the reveal?
 

Don't you just love the expressions on their faces? 
and the snarky way she's pointing at Boo instead of saying it?

I did mention prizes, right?  We've got super fun prizes!!! One random & lucky commenter will win $25 to the EH shop and one will win the whole September Essentials by Ellen release!!!  To enter for a chance to win, make sure to leave comments at each stop along the hop!  Comment before Sunday, September 15th at 11:59pm PST. Winners will be notified by email.
 
Okay, as much as I love to have you stopping by... off you go … no broom required... Adelina has a fabulous treat for you!  As do all of my teamies - here's a complete list:
