Furry Friend!

Maybe not real fur! But fake fur for sure!

I was over at Marcie's this afternoon for a stamping party and managed to get a couple of cards done!
She had so many girls over there giggling and stamping and grabbing for glue and scissors and paper and ink, it's a wonder I got anything done at all!! LOL!!

I had to come home and re-do the snowbunny bella card because I couldn't concentrate on it!

I'm not really sure about it, but as I say, it is what it is!!

This card is for Kraftin' Kimmies Celebration Challenge #5 - paper piecing.

I stamped Snowbunnybella once on white cardstock and again on some dotted paper Marcie had in her scrap drawer. I cut out the coat and adhered it to the first stamped image. Then I coloured her face and legs with the copic markers. Her boots and behind her head is done with turquoise glaze pen!

Then I outlined her in a very light blue marker. I think it makes her pop out more.

I Cuttlebugged the bottom half of the back ground paper which is cardstock and Daisy D's Maybe Baby paper with the embossing folder.

I used my corner rounder to make a scalloped edge and punched some holes in it too.

I tied some ribbon and a flower around the top and popped up my image. I stamped the My Favorite Things, Essential Sentiments "Kids with Fur" sentiment and popped it up too!

I added puff paint to the furry parts of her outfit, heated it up and out it popped!! Magic!!

This next card is also for Kraftin' Kimmies Celebration Challenge only for #6. We are supposed to make a thank you card and do something nice for someone today!

No, I didn't bake a pie but I did take my stamping stuff over to Marcie's and let her friends use it. I did cringe the whole time but the point is I did it!!
I don't know why I take offense at someone touching my stamping is some kind of phobia ---- maybe "agityourcottonpickinhandsoffmystuffaphobia" I have heard of that.

This paper is Basic Grey Gypsy, another beautiful pack of paper!! The stamp is from Clearly Wordsworth and this set has so many cute little people! There is a golfer, a nurse, a cowgirl and a mother....and then all the saying with it.....very cool!

I stamped this image on a tag, my inspiration was from Michelle Wooderson's card here.

I coloured her with my copics and added two little blings from Verve Visual. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things, Essential Sentiments set.

That's about it for today!! I think I have had a couple or more posts so I better pack it in and spend some quality time with Rosie so she will stop chewing up things.......oh yeh, .......hubby too...LOL!!!



  1. I LOOOOOOOOOOVE both of these cards Bonnie!!! Bella is BEE-utiful with those pretty colours and that puffy stuff!! And the colour combo on the second one is awesome!!

    Sounds like you had a fun afternoon....but I believe I have the same disease as you!!! You made a great sacrifice!!! hahaha!!

  2. These are both fantastic! OK, on the first one, the outlining in light blue . . . sorry, but that's genius in my book! I just got a ton of Bella images (some from you, some from my secret sister in the swap), and I am totally going to do this! It really does make her pop! Great idea! Love the color combination too! The 2nd one is fantastic colors too! Gorgeous paper!

    P.S. I don't like anyone touching my stuff either! I just love it all so much, and it's mine!

  3. Both of these are terrific! I love all the texture on the Bella card and the Wordsworth is so cute and funky!
    I feel the same way about my stuff! That's one of the reasons I stopped being a demo, I just never got over that "watch it, did you even clean that", kind of thing. Just one of my many hang ups! LOL
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Both cards are fabulous but particularly like Bella's coat and fur hood--I could have used it tonight. It is cold tonight (24F heading to 15F, not counting wind chill)! We've been so warm this winter I don't think I know what to do.

    Have a great week!

  5. These are both adorable!!!Love the Bella's jacket and apliqued hood! so cute!

  6. Oh yeah, I know that phobia well!! Love this Bella image...she is so much fun to color, and the other card is so cute!!

  7. Such fun cards....the Bella is really cute! And the phobia...too funny! I know I've had that problem at times...sometimes with the "thatsnotacleanstamp!!!" *hehehehe*

  8. Your Bella card is so adorable! I love the colors, the texture and I love how you did Bella herself!
