My Prince Will Come...... maybe.

Hey bloggers!!  Welcome back for another Bellariffic Friday Sketch Challenge.  This was a pretty easy one as it goes and I chose to use Cinderella by Mo Manning

I'm not sure why this very pink Cosmo Cricket paper is showing up more as red in my photo, when it's actually more the colour of the ribbon.  Huh.  (oh well...)

Oh this sentiment sums me up perfectly - I must say!! LOL!!  And yes... I'm STILL waiting.  =)

This Mo Manning image already comes with a super cute sentiment:  "One SHOE can change your life."  I love that too.  =)

Be sure to join us next Friday for a Stamping Bella theme challenge:  Halloween (image or colours) Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian friends.  Gobble Gobble.  ;)

Best Buddies = Bench Buddies

Hello Blog Friends!  Isn't this the perfect image for A Best Friend Card???  I love it.  It's from Stamping Bella's Uptown line called Belinda and Bernadette - Bench Buddies.

I coloured them up with about a ba-zillion Copics (list below) and added some clouds by sponging around a cloud die with SU's Bashful Blue ink... it's very light and I love the effect.

I used a sentiment from MFT on the inside and more of the same patterned papers.

Ho Ho Ho

Hello again!  Back today with one of my all-time-favorite stamps from Stamping Bella.  Love her so much that I had to stamp her twice in my card.  =)

So this is Polly Packages and she's freakin adoreable, don't you think???  I coloured her up with Copics and added Glossy Accents to her little Christmas package bundle.  I used velvet ribbon, sheer ribbon and lace on this card.  I also tried to add little snowflake die cuts, but it just felt like too much, so I left them in the picture anyway.... I'm not above using props to make my cards look better... lol.

Lots of glittler on the white snow flake die and on all of Polly's trim & scarf.  I absolutely love both sides of this Basic Grey "aspen frost" Christmas paper... and bought lots so I hope you don't get tired of it - lol.

And here's where I stamped Polly Packages again on the inside.  I used the MFT letter dies for "ho ho ho".

Now... a few important things before I forget:
