My Very Own Bella

Well, I went and played bunco tonight. I think it's the first time I've been out of the house and away from the kids for "mommy time" in about two months!! I SO needed it, but I also NEEDED to win and that didn't happen. I guess that's ok, at least it was fun seeing everyone again. Which leads me to this card's sentiment...Feel Blessed (from Papertrey), even when the going gets tough or things don't go exactly as you would like them to! I finally own my own Bella's, thanks to my mommy getting a few of them for me to play with. (I am blessed to have a terrific mommy.) I also got the Jammybella, and the Shopabellas. This is the first one I've inked up to play with and let me tell you, they stamp off like a dream! They are just the rubber, no cushion and non-mounted, so I just made a tape "roll" (I don't have any double sided tape, can you believe it?) and stuck it on an acrylic block and then stuck Ms. Bella directly onto that! Worked like a charm! I colored her with a combination of Stampin Up markers and Prismacolor markers and made the little scallop border with my SU slot punch and then (I wish I hadn't) doodled the little lines with my white gel pen. Now it looks like there are happy faces along the bottom edge. Oh well, too late now! Guess I'll just have to keep feelin' blessed that I can even MAKE a card!! teehee!!! Tomorrow I go to Michael's corporate to meet with Provo Craft reps and see them demo the new Cricut Expression machine! Stay tuned and I will tell you what I can about it tomorrow evening. I also have a little altered project to share that matches this card! Feel Blessed!! YOU ARE!!!


  1. Love this card! You have so many little touches that make this card special!

  2. BEAUTIFUL card Susan! You are so right; those stamps stamp just wonderfully! I love them! Sorry to hear that you didn't win at bunco, but at least you got out of the house for a little bit.
    You've been tagged!!!

  3. What a nice job on this card, Susie!! I didn't see the "smiley faces" on the bottom until you mentioned it!!! I love all of the elements you put in your card. You're an amazing amd creative artist ... and you make us all FEEL BETTER!!!
    Hugs -- Mommy

  4. Oh, this is AWESOME Susie :) LOVE it. I just got a bunch of bella images sent in the mail and I need to sit down and make some more cards. This one is soo pretty with your colors and the scallops and cuttlebug...LOVE it! I've also discovered that I NEED the Boatloads of fun one. Well, sorry you didn't win bunco, but I'm glad you got some much needed girlie time!! :) {{Hugs}}
