I wanted to use another Bella image that I received, AND I wanted to use another NEW Cuttlebug large embossing folder. I'm happy to say that I was able to do both!
My SBS2 Secret Sister sent me Bella stamped images, and this one is just the coolest! Look at Bella with her guitar. She really ROCKS! I'm loving this new embossing folder. It's called allegro. Both of my girls are very musical, so this folder was a MUST for me. The ribbon is fantastic, and I think I got it at Hobby Lobby. The "you rock" is Karen Foster snap stamps. I colored the image with pencils and used gamsol. I'm very happy with the way this card turned out!
I'm happy to say that I finally know WHO sent me the wonderful Bella images! I received my SBS2 "reveal" package yesterday. My secret sister is Inking Aloud's, Lori T. Lori is so talented, and it's always so much fun to visit her blog, because all of her creations are such eye candy! We're also both on Tamara's Sketches! card design team. Very cool! I had NO CLUE that Lori was my secret sister, and she was an awesome secret sister. This is the card that I received with my reveal package. I love the red and turquoise. It's such a pretty card!
Lori also sent me an altered notepad and pen. Isn't this fantastic? I love it! Such a pretty color, and the stamping is perfect!
Look at these monogram sticky notes! So cool, all different colors, and I love the dots! Such happy sticky notes! They're sitting here right on my desk!
She also sent me lots of packages of BLING! Love it all, and I will use it all, because I just love bling! Such pretty rhinestones! Plus, look at the jumbo altered paper clip! Gorgeous! The red and brown is so striking!
The altered paper clip is worth a second look. It's so pretty! I love it! I love it ALL! Thank you so much Lori! You were just an awesome secret sister! I am one of the luckiest bloggers that I know! I have "met" such amazing women, and you're all so wonderful, generous, and kind! Thank you!
Well, if you saw my 10 p.m. post and photo from last night (below), you will know that I'm a little bit crabby today, because we got more snow! It's heavy and wet, and I need to go outside to finish shoveling it. I did a little bit of it already, and I'm tired! Ugh! Yuck! I guess all of this will just make me appreciate spring so much more when it finally arrives! Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
