I know this is a horrible picture. I will try and upload a better one tomorrow. It is so glam too! I am one of those people that really don't like alot of the cards that I make, but I absolutely LOVE this card! I started off buy inking up Cosmobella with some black Staz On and stamping the image on some Prism white cardstock. I colored her in with my Aquarell Watercolor Pencil crayons and used my Auquaflo painter thingy for the first time! How have I gone without it for so long? My designer papers are from the Basic Grey Collection Perhaps. This wasn't a specific card for anything so I thought that the Live It Up sentiment fit it perfectly. That is one of the Studio G stamps from the Michaels $1.50 sets. Those sets are great just for all the little sentiments. I thought that Bella looked so glamorous that I added the 3 jeweled brads from Generations. The background pink cardstock is from Bazzill. Like I said this is one of my favorite cards I have made so far. Bella just makes it so easy!

This is the Mrs. I started off by embossing the background with the cuttlebug folder which was a chore as I don't have a cuttlebug yet! I used my good old original Sizzix! I had some fun trying to figure it out but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! I love the look so much and I could only afford the embossing folders not the machine! Then I decided to ink up my new Let it Snow set from Inque Boutique . I was kind of hard to color her as she is all mostly white. ( any other color you know you are in trouble!) So I colored her nose and put a little color on her branch arms with my Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and kind of blended it a little bit. I also added a little bit of blue to the bottom of her so it looked like she was sitting on some ice. I also inked up the edges of all the white cardstock for a more frosty feeling with Baby Blue Versacolor. The ribbon is from American Crafts. I topped it all off with 3 snowflake brads from Making Memories. Hope you like!
This is the first set that I picked out. Isn't it cute? I thought it would be a good choise with the holidays coming up and all. This set is called Let it Snow. Can you beleive that I got this set of 21 stamps for under $11.00 CAD? That is the best part.
If you have Christmas images you need Christmas saying so I couldn't give up this set too. It is a mini set even though you cannot tell from the pic. It is considerably smaller and cheaper. Under $3.50 CAD. WOW! The bonus part is there are 19 stamps to this set. This set is called Mini-Christmas. I should be set for Christmas stamps for this year but I am sure I can find more.
So, want to know how I managed to 3 items at the store? Ah, this Surfafella is for Trevor! I cannot walk into Urban Trends Scrapbook Co. and not walk out without at least one Bella / Fella. I love them all.
I am off to ink up some of these great new stamps. I hope to have something for you later!

It is Thanksgiving weekend up here in Canada so we will be having Thanksgiving Dinner on Monday as I have to share my daughter with her father and he will have her for dinner on Sunday! Mmmm....I love turkey. Dinner will be at moms, so that leaves no mess for me and good eaten all weekend!
Onto some stampin' business! I finally had some down time today after I had picked up Trevor, he was watching a Pokemon movie. I decided that I was getting quite a collection of Bellas and that I should mount them all before if seems to overwhelming to even bother. I hadn't started when I first got them as I did not have any EZ mount. I decided again getting a hot knife as I was told that why waste your money on that when you can use a good pair of scissors and get them all sticky then clean them off. "It works just as good" also "more money to spend on Bellas!" Well that convinced me. Anything more Bellas! So now a couple of my Bellas look like they have gone through a chop shop! What is so EZ about the EZ Mount? If anyone know you can let me know! But hey it does not matter what my Bellas look like it matters what the stamped image looks like to me! If anyone wants to laugh they really don't need to use them!
There is my finished products. I even got some other stamps mounted with the not so EZ mount too! I will eventually do more...but I think that is enough for a bit as I was getting so frustrated and I have to wait for my LSS to get more in!
So because the is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I am thankful to be Canadian I think that is a cause for blog candy! I do not have it ready today, be on the lookout for it tomorrow and think about what you are thankful for!

So quite a while back I put out a plee on Splitcoaststampers for some newer Stampin Up images as I kind of felt out of the loop not having any new images. This awesome gal Traci (chooch)answered my cry for help and decided to send me some images. She had mentioned that she also had TAC (The Angel Company) images too! I was overjoyed as you know they do not have TAC stamps here in Canada! So I anxiously awaited Traci's package. On one of the rottenest days Traci's package shows up in the mail and wow it was well worth waiting for!
Traci sent me oodles and oodles of stamped images. I will be busy for a long time. She even sent me coloured images. What fun is that? Might I add they are perfect stamped images.
Look at this beautiful card traci sent along with the package! Now what is better than stamped images? Stamps! I got 2 packages of TAC stamps and 4 mini Stampin Up stamps. This packaged totally brightened my day! Of course I had never seen these TAC stamps before either so I cannot wait to start playing with them.
Onto another day! I got back my Summer Tag Swap that I had showed you way back at the beginning of my blogging journey. I participated in this swap with a great group of ladies from a yahoo group called Swapheaven! Here is a pic of all the tags together!
Ok now onto today! Well my birthday is coming up in 4 more days so I have been getting Birthday cards too! I got a whole whack of happy mail today. First off I got a RAK from the Swapheaven group of ribbon and flowers. Well, who can't use ribbon and flowers? Then I got a beautiful birthday card from the penpal group on Splitcoaststampers from Dolores. What a great lady Dolores is, she is the one who got me hooked up on the penpal group!
Isn't this a beautiful card? Dolores is so talented! I love cards that have been cuttlebugged? Is that a word? Then I recieved this great card with a great layered flower on the front from Marcine Luke. I love the navy and yellow ribbon combination!
Last but not least I got this birthday card from Deborah Stevens on Splitcoaststampers also. I do not know if you can see that the circles pop out. The picture does not do this card justice. Wow that was alot of updating. I will not let it get that behind again! Now onto all my thank you's to everyone!
