Hello Dear Friend

It's Friday and that means the weekend is upon us once again! Woohoo!!  And the weather is suppose to be fairly nice - which is always a bonus for the weekends.

For my card today, I decided it was time to colour up a Bella image for a change.  I have Gossipabella to share with you.

She was stamped on Bella's bestest paper and then I coloured her using prismacolour and Caran d'ache
pencils and blended with gamsol.  I used a square s/binder die to cut her out and then sponged some versamagic key lime then toned it down with some sea breeze.  I used a Cheery Lynn doily die to lay behind gossipabella.  Love the intricacy of this die.  DP is a scrap piece from my scrap bucket - I believe it is October Afternoon. this stamp comes with her own sentiment which I chose not to use only because it was a bit too long, so instead I used this sentiment which I thought went well with the image.  On my Christmas card from Paula, she put a sentiment on the front and did a little stitch at the end with her sewing machine and I loved the look of it, so I cased her idea here on my sentiment tag.

No glitter on this card just some stitching to finish it off.

So don't forget about our first challenge of 2012 next friday, have your card to Emily by thursday night.
It's a sketch challenge, to see the sketch just scroll down a post.

Also some more great news - Stamping Bella is now back on SCS.  We have our forum up and running and have lots of fun and exciting ideas for the up coming year.  You can read about it here.

Thanks for coming by today, have a wonderful weekend.
