Good morning!

**EDIT** I forgot to mention (how could I !???) that this card was for the challenge in the Paper Pretties club in which I belong. I hopefully will be doing some of their challenges once in a while (if its not too hard {whining})

Good morning to you!!

Well I worked last night on my PomPomabella card and finished her, which of course, is from Stamping Bella, (which I LUV - but you knew that!)

She is sooo cute, and ready to cheer you up!!

This card gave me a headache - really. I changed my mind so much, back and forth and back again!!

I ripped off the first ribbon which would have been pretty in the right place but it was not a cheery ribbon, then I screwed up the second ribbon (lumps and bumps) and so I finally decided to make my own. I glued light yellow paper on turquoise paper (both from Mat Stacks) and then ran them through the Cuttlebug with the spots and dots embossing folder - not bad.

Pompomabella's hair and outfit was coloured with my Tombow markers -luv 'em- and her luvely fleshy colour is from the Prism marker (which I also got from Stamping Bella).

Her pom poms, hair ribbon, shoes and the outline of her skirt was done in my NEW Gellyroll stardust markers that I got at a Scrapbook show and sale on Saturday!! Then I doodled around the edges with a ziggy marker.

Argyle paper is from Scrapworks - anything schooly brings out the argyle - don't you think!

The three sweet buttons are from the Love Elsie-Toby line from KI Memories. I didn't know where I would use those and I did. I had four bling brads in their place but they were too little and kind of off center and ugh! so I ripped off the back mat and reglued onto new matting, but there were holes from the brads - thus the headache - then found the cute little Elsie buttons - saved my night !!- and stuck them on to cover up the BIG GAPING HOLES from those brads! Worked perfectly!!

Sometimes, things you don't think will work anywhere, will work!!

I am going out to gather up my 12,000 eggs and then going to have lunch with my mom, who just had her cataracts done. I sent her a handmade Getwellbella card and put little blings on the eyes -- hee hee! I forgot to take a picture so I better take my camera so I can post it.

Yeah mom!! LUCKY ME!!
Lastly, I leave you a picture of my daughter and my puppy, Rosie, not because you may want to see it, but because I can if I want, and that is what we blogger's do - shamelessly.....

    Luv the 'bumpy' embossing. Cuttlebug right? How do you mount your bellas? Just curious...

  2. Awww..........yes it is Cuttlebug and I just glue my bella on my background with Tombow mono multi liquid glue -that's a mouthful! I should also say I stamped my bella with VersaFine archival instant dry pigment ink-another mouthful!! Thank you for your comment!
