Ok so now I have to tell you what I was doing 10 ..... 20 ..... and 30 years ago.
Well, 10 years ago I was just going on maternity leave with my middle child, William and getting ready for the holidays (he was due 1 week before Christmas!). Victoria was almost 6 and soooo cute and sweet (too bad you can't go back...lol). Jeff & I were moving into a new house and getting it ready for a 6th Birthday Party, the holidays and a new baby!
20 years ago, I just turned 18 knew everything there was to know about anything and had the world right where I wanted it! (I hadn't realized yet how dumb I was!!).
30 years ago ... I was just a baby! hahaha, I really don't even remember 30 years ago!
Well now I guess it is my turn to tag someone...hmmmmmm, how about one of new Bella Buddies, Katie Skiff! I have been chatting a bit with Katie lately and just love her to death! She's very funny, extremely supportive and makes cute cards! Thanks Heidi and Katie for being there! Love to all!

Here is my card for Deb. It is a double Pocket card from the Oct./Nov. '07 issue of Technique Junkies. This card was so fast, fun & easy to create!! I used Primas & antique brads, I Like Your Style stamp set, double sided paper by Chatter Box, Vintage Violet & WW cs and I colored the yellow flowers on the book mark with a Copic marker. Oh yeah, the round tab punch with the Totally Tabs on the one book mark. Thanks for looking and comments are always appreciated!!!

I love my Copics, I love my Copics, I love my Copics, I love my Copics!!!!!! I finally decided to got some Copics from Eclectic Paperie. These gals are amazing and wonderful! Customer service is way above and beyond!!!!! I highly recommend them to everyone! Joy & Daisy Rock!!!
Ok, back to business...I love this Jolliest Time of the Year stamp set!!!! This card is for the Color Challenge yesterday (Basic Gray, Purely Pomegranate & Soft Sky). I really like these colors together! I used basic gray for a challenge last week and now I can't get enough of it! Love that color! I'm learning that I don't like things flat, I need texture and layers. This card still seems "flat" to me, but I like it...maybe I'll add some breads to the bottom corner....hmmmmm!
Anyway, I colored Santa with my Copics (did I mention that I love these babies?!!?). Santa's white fur and the "snowdrifts are covered in Dazzling Diamonds. I stamped both pieces of the Soft Sky cs with Canvas BG with Soft Sky ink.

This is for Beate's sketch challenge. I have been making so many Halloween cards lately that this was a very nice break! I love this snowman, he is sooo cute and just begging for some Dazzling Diamonds all over him! I also really like the SU's Wintergreen DP. For the deets...Jolliest Time of the Year, Warmest Regards, Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp sets; Basic Gray, Sage Shadow and WW cs's and Wintergreen DP; Basic Gray ink, Silver brads & Dazzling Diamonds. I colored Mr. Jolly with Prisma's and used Gamsol to blend and mute colors.

Thank you to Miss Katie for starting off the Bella Babe Sketch Challenge!! Here is my entry! Can you see the flower brads in her basket? And yes those are Bella Baubles in the middle of the Primas. I had a hard time being creative for this one, but I loved using the baubles! My order comes in today so, hopefully I will get some serious cardmaking & posting done!!!
