My First Bella

Hi legions of fans. I know I'm probably the last one in the stamping world to get a Bella, but I just didn't. It wasn't for lack of trying though. So finally a blogger posted this one for a price I liked and I picked it up. I felt this image will lend itself to any kind of card. So here she is. I struggled with what to do with her hair. Should I color it, or not? I tried a few different things and not coloring worked best for me. I'll have to go back to check what others have done. So, I added a pin with baubles and some ribbon and I thought this ds paper worked well and voila. Hope you like her.

How's your weekend going so far. Hopefully, you're finding lots of time to stamp. A friend and I attended Michelle Zindorf's beginner brayer class this PM. We waited almost a year for her to come to AZ. We learned and had a good time. Now I have to put it all to good use. I'll post one of the cards we made in February. She asked us not to do it quite yet so she can finish up her classes using the cards she's taught this go-around.

Happy Sunday stamping.
