It has been a CRAZY day!! My kids missed the bus...again..It picks up at the end of our driveway but for some reason they can never make it!!! I have also been at the school all day helping with reading in the gr1 class and preparing the healthy snack...Do you know I chopped over 600 strawberries and 900 cubes of cheese!!! I know, I know, you really don't need to know this..too bad!! Well I have a few minutes before the bus drops them off (they can hardly miss that one!!) so I figured I'd post the card I made last night.

I am sooooooo ready for summer...I keep telling myself it is just around the corner...you sure couldn't tell by the freezing cold we had yesterday. I decided Glideabella was the perfect image for a card...although the way she is dressed, she ought to be cold!!!

Stamped on Fabriano paper with Memories black ink, I watercoloured her with Stampin' Up's Cool Carribean, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red and a teeny bit of River Rock on her skates. The card is a vanilla base with a layer of River rock. I used My Minds Eye Laundry Line (I love all the papers in this series) for the triangle. It's kinda hard to tell with the picture (need to work on my photographic skills) but the little dots in the MME paper match the colours I've coloured with...I never would have put these colours together but the finished result ties together because of the paper.
I hid the seam with some satin vanilla ribbon. Glideabella is layered on cool carribean and popped up. Some Oyster baubles from Stamping Bella and a little bit of SU's crystal effects on the skate swirls finished the card.

I quite like the finished result...Simple but quite pretty...So now I'm giving myself a pat on the back 'cause this post went really fast!!!


  1. Looks great Michelle, love the colouring and that thing you did with the ribbon! Bellas are great - I need to play with them soon.
