Blame it on the Al al al al co alcohol!

So, the challenge for the month of June at the Stamping Bella Forum is “Citrus.” When I thought of citrus, I thought os maybe a beverage or two! Ha ha ha Here’s a close-up of my Bella:052

Since I got my new Prismacolor pencils I have been a coloring fool! Ha ha ha, well, I’m trying to learn the proper technique to coloring like all of the wonderfully talented stampers I see out there. I said TRYING! ha ha ha Failing, perhaps, but at least I’m putting myself out there. anyway, it’s hard to color with a bum wrist too, so that’s my current excuse.

051I just located these stickers today, they are Mrs. Grossman stickers that I have had for eons! And for those of you who know me all too well, my signature flower is on my card!!! But wait, gasp! Something’s missing!!!!!!

053I know, I know, I know!!! RIBBON!!! can you believe that I actually made a card without some sort of ribbon on it?!?!?! I know, something MUST be wrong with me!!! Ha ha ha Perhaps it was my run this morning, 3 miles and my brain shuts down and I no longer have the ability to add the perfect ribbon to my card. Perhaps if I do 4 miles I may leave off the flower too… but that’s pushing it!!! I’m thinking I need to get working on the “To Do” list inside this card before I could ever leave off the flowers… but who knows…. ho hum…


Here’s the inside of the card. (obviously) and of course it’s adorned with more beverages and citrus slices. All in all, I’m thinking this is a pretty cute card…. now I just need to figure out a recipient…. oh well, another one for the “maybe I’ll send it to SOMEONE, SOMEDAY…..” box. That particular box is getting pretty full. Ha ha ha!

Well, Bellas, I’ll be seein’ ya ‘round! Enjoy the sunny day and perhaps a nice cold Bella Beverage (or Chick Drink as it were). TTFN

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!

I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!

Getting Nerdy!

Good morning crafty people!
