All about the babies

Hi there!!! I'm just popping in quickly with one last card before we ring in the new year.  As soon as I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I knew I wanted to play. My mom needed a baby card so I decided to ink up Snookums from Stamping Bella .  I think this may be one of my favorite baby images ever!! Love it!! 

I'll be back in a day or two with a fun new project!! 

Happy New Years!!!

Sending love

Hi there!!!! Sending lots of love your way!! This week at Stamping Bella we had a sketch to work with and to be honest, it scared me when I first looked at it. 

Believe me when I say I stared at it for a long time... And then suddenly it dawned on me. For my card, I decided to use the image called "Lucille Sends her Love". I flipped the sketch on its side and coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I then used a Memory Box die twice with two different papers and popped a couple of the hearts up.  

This is the last challenge of the year but I'll be back soon with another card and more details about our first challenge of 2015.

Warm hugs and big smiles

Hey there!!! Sorry about the late post... I turned the big 40 yesterday. Shocking, I know!! LOL!!! I may have had a few Black Widow martinis and I wasn't on the floor. LOL!!! This week at Stamping Bella, we had a great inspiration image to work with. I decided I wanted to go with a nice subtle colour combo to mimic the softness of the snow. For my card, I used a recent Sweet Sunday Sketch. I have used the sentiment from the newer set called Buddy and Jolly.  

Next week is our last challenge of the year!!! Make sure you get your card in to Emily by Thursday evening to be included in the Friday post.

A little hula

Hi there!! Another week and another Bellarific Friday. This week at Stamping Bella, we had a fantastic sketch to work with and of course, I messed it up a little bit. OOPS!!! I'm getting old, I shouldn't try to do a sketch from memory. LOL!!! For my card, I have decided to use one of the new images called Hula Chick.  She's been coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol. I really like how she turned out and she's definitely able to brighten your day when the skies are gray. |LOL!!! 

Next week is an inspiration challenge. Check it out. 

Please remember that you need to use a current image. To make sure it's current, just type the stamp name into the search box on the website. If you see it there, it's current. Then email your card to Emily at by Thursday evening.
