Hi everyone!
I don't think I'm quite ready for this blast of cooler weather we are having.  We even turned the heat on for the first time just to take the dampness out.  It's been raining since friday afternoon and finally quit this morning.  Sun and a tad bit warmer for the rest of the week ahead :).

So with the cooler weather, it put me in the mood to work on some Christmas cards. Now Linda brought back my Stamping Bella order from when she was teaching last weekend at Bellaland, so it was hard to decide what I wanted to ink up first.

I decided on Theo gives a Prezzie.
Theo  was stamped using black memento ink on bella's bestest paper, and colored with my prismacolor pencils.  The paper is from last years stash called Be Merry from MME. I bought a few extra sheets because I didn't want to run out and not be able to get any more (yes, I know I have a serious problem when it comes to paper!).
I added some white flock to Theo's santa hat, and some glitter on the present and the holly leaves. Dotted the holly's with my clear glaze pen. I also used my Martha Stewart punch for red border. Finished off with a piece of ribbon topped with a button.

If you haven't already heard we have a new "Babe" in the house.  Her name is Kim Teasdale, her work is amazing- you can check out her blog here,

Now for next weeks challenge the theme is
Fall Colors. So pull out a bella image and color it up in those earth tones, yellow, orange, red, brown, green- anything fall. Submit your entry to Emily by thursday night for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Have a good week, see you soon.
