My FIRST Bella

Just a really quick post cos I'm knackered and still need to pack my back for tomorrow, had a really productive day. Got masses cleared in work - seriously must have been smoke coming off the pen and keyboard lol, ended up finishing a bit early so didn't have to rush. So this evening I've managed to finish 2 cards completely start to finish!! I know I was well impressed with myself, especially as I didn't have a clue what I was doing for one of them.

Well here is tonight's card, this changed 'slightly' from the idea in my head lol - that was a pastel-y card with a cute little bunny stamp. But then I found my Bella stamp, I'd only got my first Bella stamps a couple of weeks ago (I love them but hadn't gotten round to looking for a UK site that sold them till then) and none of them had seen ink so thought it was about time that I used it. I thought the Elzybells sentiment was perfect for a shopping-type card - although I'm definitely going to have to use it on a food based card :)

This is my entry for Sketch # 46 on the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog, I love using sketches as a starting point. I used them alot for scrapbook layouts so I think it's a bit of a comfort zone lol, that sounds daft when I say that makes me try different ideas to what I normally do. Right well, here is the card, coloured with a mix of Copics and Promarkers, I then glitterfied the boxes, bow and shoes, I was going to do the boots too but thought that might be a bit OTT lol.

Supplies: 'Imeldabella' Stamp by Stamping Bella, 'Tempatation' Stamp by Elzybells, 'Love Bandit' and 'Alissa' Papers by Bo Bunny, Double Dot Ribbon by Bo Bunny & Sugar Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Copics, Promarkers, Green & Black Ink Pads

Right off to pack then bed me thinks XOX
