This was me...yup clickabella!! It took me almost the whole day to do that silly post! You see how lovely her smile is...don't kid yourself, I was gritting my teeth trying to figure it all out.

Today is going much better...I'm posting this and then off to get ready for my workshop tonight...I am a terrible procrastinator and never do things until the last minute...well at least I have a few hours to figure out what I am going to demo and what the make and takes will be.

I wasn't planning on stamping last night....Come on...Thursday nights are reserved for Greys Anatomy...well it was a re-run so I did make a card!

Clickabella is stamped on Fabriano hot press watercolour paper with Memories black ink. She is coloured using Stampin' Up Barely Banana, Cool Caribbean, Pink Pirouette, Creamy Caramel and Going Grey. I layered the base card with Bazzill paper (I ran out of Stampin Up's cool caribbean) and used a small piece of My Minds Eye- Just Dreamy 2 layered on Pink Pirouette for the centre block. Clickabella is layered on Barely Banana paper and popped up. Three Bella baubles (I love Stamping Bella's Baubles and Dots) finished the card.

Would ya look at that...this only took me 15 minutes...I'm getting better!!! Hopefully there won't be any glitches when I publish...If you can't read the text or leave a comment...blame Blogger!!

My First Ever....

Blog post and challenge submission!!

So I finally decided to jump in...with both feet!! I have been saying for ages "I am going to start a blog" here I am. I should let you know that I really have no idea what I am doing so I'm sure there will be a few glitches (probably a lot!!) as I learn my way.

So not only is this my first is also the first time I have ever submitted a card for a challenge...Of course the challenge would have to be Bellarific Fridays from Emily's blog at Stamping Bella.

Have I mentioned I LOOOVE ALL things Bella??!!

So here is my submission...Daisybella! She is stamped in Memories black ink on Fabriano 140lb hot press watercolour paper. The background is SU's Old Olive and My Minds Eye - Tres Jolie for the 1/2 circle.

I paper pieced her pants with same MME paper and watercoloured her shirt with Old Olive. The Daisy is watercoloured with SU's Apricot Appeal and lightly brushed with Stamping Bella's liquid watercolour glitter. A few sage glitter dots and some white grosgrain ribbon finished the card.

So there you have it, my day of firsts!!
