Thank you! (woof!)


Mornin' hens! Hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend. I did a little crafting in my coop this weekend so it was a MOST relaxing one for me. Looooove those kind of weekends.

I made this card as a little Thank You to the woman who helped us with Emily last week. She was just so nice and thoughtful, and took extra time with me and my DH. It sure meant a lot to both of us and I knew immediately, I was going to make her a card and tell her how much I appreciated her kindness.

So, I went digging through my stash of stamps and decided on this cute image called, "Woofin it up" from Stamping Bella. I stamped the image onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored it with my Copics. I cut it out with my Label Nestabilities and sponged some distress ink around the edges. This DP is from My Mind's Eye Lush Collection and I matted it with some SU Very Vanilla and Early Expresso CS. I stitched around the edges of each panel and punched the lacey bottom border with my Fiskars Border Punch. I tied some Martha Stewart twill ribbon into a cute bubbly bow and finished with a few mini brads on either side of the image. Ya think she'll like it?


Don't forget, this Friday the Bellarific Friday challenges are back. We have a sketch from our own Kimabella and boy did I LOVE workin with this one. It was definitely a challenge for me, but I LOVED the results. Come on and play along with the Bella Babes this Friday. Just email your card to emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday and you could win some cool Bella Bucks!

Hmmmm, did I hear someone say FREE Bella stamps?? Oh yeah, two lucky winners will get Bella Bucks which can be used to purchase Stamping Bella images, like this cute one. Okee dokee hens, that's it for me today. I hope you all have a MARVELOUS Monday and I'll see ya back in the hen house tomorrow mornin!! {{{hen hugs}}}
