Bella & The Kitchen Sink!!!

All I have to say is, WOW! I can't believe I actually won a BLOG CANDY!!! Thanks so much, Cheri, for the chance to win!!

Ok, sorry, I was just a tad excited!! Hehe! So, how is everyone?? Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate tremendously!! I also am VERY excited about my card here! What do you think? I really was tryin' to go outside the box with this one. Maybe it's not out of all of your boxes, but, it was for me! So, you can understand how proud I am of this one!! I took my close to cocoa SU CS and mounted a piece of Basic Grey ( my FAV, I swear) DP. I call it BG paper, but, I have seen some of you call it DP. We will go with DP today. I wanted to turn up the edge and forgot that this paper doesn't have anything on the back. Well, I made my own on the back! I sponged some SU Basic Brown on there and I like it!! Then I pieced another snippet of Basic Grey DP, from the same Cupcake 6x6 pad. This is the same pad I had from LIMELIGHT PAPERCRAFTS! I have been using it sparingly! LOL! Then I added the Book Sentiment from Stamping Bella and sponged that with the SU Brocade Blue. It has to match you know, or at least coordinate! Haha! Did I mention that I got this image in a swap?? This one came from Scrampin Mama, I am so thankful for this swap;because I have the sentiment and not the bella. Thanks much Sarah, I love this image!! I like to give books as gifts a lot, so this image will definitely be used!! Speaking of image swaps, don't forget to email me if your interested in swapping!! I will email you my list!! I hope you love this card as much as I do.

Ok, I had to post this card too! I don't know if any of you remember my chick card, a while back, but I really liked that Kitchen Sink set a bunch! I liked it so much and it was so reasonable, not to mention way cute, that I had to get the Squirrel set!! It took me a bit to get the hang of this 3 step stamping, it can really be tricky! I know these clear stamps are supposed to make it easier to see, but not me!!! It kinda confused the issue at times! Anyway, I did finally get it to work and, of course, I LOVE this card!! I won't go into detail, since my last couple posts have been lengthy and you all were great enough to read them in their entirety!!! You guys are the BEST!! Let me know what you think on these 2! I love to hear your feed back!! Oh, and don't forget the festivities at LIMELIGHT PAPERCRAFTS, this coming October 4th. If you scroll down, I have the deets listed below!! It was nice sharing with all of you and I'll see you real soon!! Until then....................ENJOY LIFE!!!
**I don't know if this pic does this card justice! The light pink DSP, directly under the Squirrel, matches the pattern on the main piece of dsp! Oh, well, enjoy anyway!

Love Bookwormabella...totally awesome card. The way you colored your own paper to match was very creative!! I agree with you on that paper. I would probably use it sparingly too. TFS

Both are so cute! I have such a hard time with the clear stamps too, but your squirrel looks amazing!

These cards are so the Bella and her colors, and the paper of course! Also, the sentiment on your other card is so cute!
