These are pics of 2 goodies boxes I got from my Bella Sistah, Janette (she is from the UK, the other side of the pond). The bottom picture is of package number 1 I got on Monday. There is a Clickabella, and there are some awesome embellies in the bag. I also love the darling card!! She is funny, wonderful, and a great card maker!!

This layout was Challenge #7, by Gina K (yup, that Gina K from Gina K stamps). I love thed the layout! I have used a similar layout to this before, and as soon as I saw this one, I knew I needed to try it! And yes, if you can count and add and remember you will notice that I completed all 7 of the challenges (Challenge #3, was a questionnaire that I participated in , but won't post here)!! YEAH!!!! I did it!!!!! Yeah, yeah, yeah deets later!
Here is my card for Shannan's Challenge. I like this card, but as I was about to take the picture I thought it would look great with some pink fiber type ribbon (which of course I didn't have), so then I was no longer satisfied with the card, darn it!! Will add the deets, later.
1. I have a huge soft spot for guys that look hot in a pair of jeans (yup, this is how I found my hubby, lol)!!!!
2. I have locked my keys in the car..while it was still running...3 times in the same week!!!! AAA just laughed at me on the 3rd call!
3. I would love to have a huge house someday and open a Bed & Breakfast somewhere. I would decorate the whole house myself, and do most of the cooking!! I would also LOVE to have a huge garden where all the kids from the neighborhood (and the guests' children) could come and help me harvest the veggies, etc.
4. I love to take drives down Pacific Coast Highway, in our Jeep with the windows all zipped off...bundle up, turn up the heater and the radio and just drive!!!! With a Starbucks of course!!
5. I love quilting.
6. I love Bubble Baths!!! In an claw footed bath tub, extra deep with a huge garden window next to me...
7. I love to color!!!!!

We're havin' a ball at the Bella Ball!! The Bella Ball on SCS!! You can go here for a list of all the challenges from the Ball. This was so much fun! Here is my entry for the first challege...it was for a trifold card and MerryBella from Stamping Bella is embellied to the max!!! The tutorial is here on Beate's blog. For the front I stamped my Christmas greeting in True Thyme and layered it on my Figgy Pudding DP, and layered that on a scallop circle of Cranberry Crisp. The card is tied closed with ribbon (adhered on the back and between the scallop and the card). Now on to the Bella!! She was way to fun and quick to decorate...I colored her dress, Santa hat and the bow on the pot in my atYou spica glitter pen in red, colored her boots and belt with a Sakura Black glaze pen . The long ornaments are colored with misc. Silver & Gold glitter pens, the round ornaments are Decorative Pearls by Joy Crafts. The fur on her boots & hat is Fun Flock. The rest of the coloring was done with Copics. Thanks for looking & have a great weekend!!! Happy stamping!

I was invited to a Girls Stamping Night out this last weekend with some amazing stampers!!! Now mind you I have NEVER been to anything but an SU Card Camp, SU Open House, etc. My new friend Joy (Eclectic Paperie) told me who was coming, I was totally intimidated because OMG, these are "amazing stamper ladies"!! Yes, my hubby laughed at me because I told him I wasn't going to work on anything in front of them for fear of looking like a horrible stamper next to them! Well, I kinda got over that and planned out what I was gonna work on (I'm not good at this, I need everything including the kitchen sink around me at ALL times), bagged everything for each card and packed up my little box. I got this whole card on the left all ready to go, and DIDN'T have the right blue to mat it with!!!!! I finally got enough courage to make a card in front them and I couldn't even begin to put it together!! I was totally bummed! So I moved on to coloring some Frosty's and Jolliest Trees & Santas...I colored several, but I still didn't get any cards put together! Go figure!! Anyway, I had to leave the party early to do some "Mom things" at home. I finally found the right blue and put this card together in about 2 minutes this afternoon! This Bella card is a RAK card, hopefully going out tomorrow. Can you see the baubles on the flowers on the right side of the card? I don't really like the Blue Prima, there doesn't look quite right...oh well!
Thanks for looking and a bigger thanks for letting me ramble. Have a great week all!
