Hello dear friend

Hi blogging friends. First things first - if you haven't heard Emily over at  Stamping Bella has released several new images today- Uptown Girls, new Ramona images, and lots of others.  Emily is also offering 15% off your total order (until Monday Oct 8)- just need to use the code: october 2012. Also you might want to check out her clearance category - under Specials - once they are gone they are gone - so as they say the early bird gets the worm.

Okay on to my card for today.   I'm using Gossipabella - one of my favourite image lines by Stamping Bella.  I just love all the Bella's and they are so fun to colour (we need more of these Emily!!).

I stamped her on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink.  I then used prismacolour pencils to colour her and blend out with gamsol. I used MFT Rounded Banner Stax to cut her out.  Sponged some daffodil color box pigment ink around the edges, they layered it onto a piece of bazzill pink and stitched around the edge. For the tag I used hello dear friend sentiment stamp. After stamping it our using black versafine I cut it our using a spellbinder tag die, then left the die in place and sponged daffodil ink inside the die area and then clear embossed it.  I also used an EK Success border doily punch.  DP is MME - Honey.  

Well that's it for me, I'm off to fill my shopping cart with all the new images - how about you? 

See you soon, and thanks for stopping by.

Love her! You've coloured her beautifully and I love the shading all around. Love the tag, the papers, your layout - wow. (And how the heck to do you sew "sew" perfectly around that arc?!)
