A Two-fer

Today you get a two-fer!! LOL!! My meds are kickin' in I think... I am sick today and woke up feeling as if the local town bus ran me over. (did anyone catch that number??) Anyway, I am really trying to stick to my resolution of doing the daily SCS challenges again! At least M-F! So, here are yesterday's and today's challenge...

For this card, it was the Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I have had this poor Bella staring at me since I got it and I never got to ink her up.  Well, yesterday was the day as I need a thank you card for someone who loves coffee/tea. I wanted to use this funky paper I have also had for lots of color.  I colored in the image using, what else? Yes, my Copics and the sentiment was stamped over again using the sentiment from MFT's Coffee or Tea.   I added some ribbon, Primas, and bling because all Bellas deserve that!

Materials Used: Stamping Bella, MFT, Paper Studio DP, White, Basic Black, Tango Tangerine, Primas, Rhinestone, ribbon


For today's challenge, it was to use stars.  Perfect! Another set I wanted to ink up and it has a star!! I also wanted to dig into my Gina K Pure Luxury Cardstock, which in my mind, YOU MUST HAVE!!! Especially if you like to color with Copics.  PERFECT!  I stamped half of it using Flourishes and the other half repeatedly with 'Friend.' For the Friend sentiment, I used the rock and roll method to get both colors. I stamped the star twice; popping up the second. I used direct ink to paper for the edges and added some stickles to the Rock Star sentiment and Friend. I added some ribbon and done!   

Thanks for stopping by and peeking... BTW... only 13 more days until I visit my good friend Carolyn (Cammie) for 2 days and then we are off to CHA in CA!!! Whoo hoo!! Plenty of pictures to share again!


  1. Ekkk...hope you are feeling better. These are great--love the pairing of the bella with the mft sentiment! Very cool! Feel better girl---cant wait to see you!

  2. Oh my word! You must get better, pronto! CHA with a 'bug' wouldn't be fun at all!

    Love your card! This bella was just waiting for you!

    Have fun with Carolyn in Anaheim! I'll be holding down the forts in Texas!


I love hearing from you...Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind comments!
