The Bella Love Fest Continues!!

I've been a busy girl today...I may need a drink after today!! I've made 3 cards, and I have the 4th one in the works. Will I make it to 5??? Who knows!! Meredith and I have been busy in the craft room, and she had colored 3 images so far to use, and she made an adorable card that I will post tomorrow!

Danni came up with the idea to use our Bellas this weekend (and she hinted about Magnolias next weekend), and we've been taking her seriously!

Join in on the fun...great way to use some neglected stamps and supplies! I've had this martini charm for I don't know how long, and I finally got to use it!! Yippee!!

The above card is another Bella stamp that I borrowed from my friend Angie. I called her this morning with a crafting emergency (yes, they do exist). For the Paper Sundaes challenge, you needed lace. Well, let me tell you...for a girl who makes cards, scrapbooks, and quilts...I didn't have any lace in this house. None. Nada. Zilch. Until I remembered this paper lace that came with a K&Company paper line. Saved. And, Angie actually had lace if I needed it!
