Let's Do Lunch with Bella


Hi Everyone!! Hope your week went well. I am REALLY glad today is Friday!! We had soo many back to school obligations this week and so much homework that I feel like I have not been at my crafting desk in days and I am having alittle withdrawal. LOL. The card I made today is one that actually took me a few days to put together believe it or not because of my lack of time. It was made for this weeks Bella Challenge which of course I am too late to enter but wanted to share my card with you anyway. I used my much neglected "Content to be a bella" stamp. How perfect is she all thin and pretty floating on a daisy!! Can life get any better for her?? I started by stamping my image onto Choice Buttercream cardstock, stamping another time onto the dp for the petals and twice more, once on the bluish paper and once on the green for the shirt and pants. I colored the rest with my copics. My dp is from DCWV Nursery Boy Stack. I did alittle paper piercing around the scallop circle, added some Very Vanilla Ribbon, stamped my sentiment from PTI on the bottom and added a few tiny twinkles. In hindsight, I would have pierced alot more on this card as I feel it is alittle flat but I was so trying to get this done that I just did not see it until everything was put together. Oh Well!! Hope you enjoy it anyway.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you have lots of fun plans for the weekend. I will be back again sometime on Saturday or Sunday. Have a great one!!

Great card, Ann! I know what you mean about being busy...I had obligations 3 of the last 4 nights. I'm realizing that my crafting time isn't going to happen much during the week - and yes, this does make me sad!!!

Have a great weekend!
