Hiya sistahs!  I am SOOO happy that you loved my PENG (hard G) ees yesterday!  They are so adorable and have a bit of a mischievous nature to them too… not quite as mischievous as our chicks but they are TIER 2 on the MISCHIEF level lol .

Today I would like to introduce “MERRY EVERYTHING”… Now OF COURSE there is a story here too.. I cannot resist an anecdote or 4 when my images are in the spotlight.. I guess it shows how passionate I really am about my stampies… they ARE alive.  I’m telling you they ARE.  At least in my heart they are :) (just humor me n’k?)

Here is MERRY EVERYTHING.. Love this image and I love the sentiment :)  I hope you do too.

merryeverythingwithsentiment

 

If you love SNOWMEN.. and if you love PEN-G (hard G)-EES… you will love this image.   I have always also loved snowglobes.. ALWAYS.. And my kidlets have a snowglobe collection.. everywhere my mom travels to.. or we travel to, we try to pick up a snowglobe :).. I know they are tacky.. I remember my grandparents always had these cheesy snowglobes on their shelves and I was mesmerized for hours, shaking them and watching the “snow” fall :)  (can you explain how their HELLO MIAMI snowglobe had snow in it?? LOL).. So that’s why this is yet another image that is close to my heart.  Do you see “JACQUES” at the top of the snowglobe?  I am not really sure how he escaped .. and I am not really sure he likes his freedom.  I think he wants “IN” LOL

Here is KERRIBELLA’s card using Merry Everything :)

and a closeup :)

If you love this image as much as I do, or even not as much as I do LOL and want a chance to win them, please leave a comment below.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting comments and read EVERY. SINGLE.  ONE.  I love when you share your memories with me too.. it’s so special and that’s what makes this “SISTAHOOD” what it is :)

MWAH to da sistahs who love da SNOWGLOBE and da PEN G (hard G) EES and A SNOWMAN

Hiya sistahs!  Was yesterday not such an amazing post?  Great turnout from da sistahs contributing to Bellarific Friday.. great feature of our stamp of the month, Betty.. sigh… LOVE.  and of course Willow and her little pretend scary goblins LOL

Now for today’s sneak peek!  Meet WARM AND FUZZY PENGUINS.  When I was little, my aunt collected penguins..  when I used to go to her house, I would just sit and admire them.  We called them PEN-GEES (hard ‘G”).   We call them PENG (hard g)EES to this day and so do my kidlets.   So I am particularly fond of PenG(hard G)ees.. in case you couldn’t tell.  In all these years, I have never had a penguin in my collection.. so now is the time :).. I think you are going to love them .  And the Sentiment?  LOVE.

warmandfuzzypenguins

I want you to please note the TUQUES on the little one’s heads.. I kinda wanna call them “Jacques”.. I think they have a bit of a Parisian flair no? LOL

Anyway, I think this image is SO great as a family Christmas card.. so much fun to colour and , I mean, how can anyone resist JACQUES???

Hiya sistahs!  I so love reading your comments about the stampies :)  Makes my heart sing!  Some of them are SO funny that I have to read them out loud to my kidlets.. Actually I read all of them to them until they say OK MOM.. we get that people like our stamps.  HMPH.. who made them have an opinion.. I liked when they sat quietly and just listened to me blab without response LOL.. Im such a good mama.

Ok today is gonna be a long-ish post… because we have LOTS to cover LOL. First, let’s reveal today’s image… of course she’s one of my favorites.. so stylish.. so cute..  and the words?? I mean.. GET YOUR WITCHY ON??? UMMM that’s for me EVERY DAY.. not just Halloween.. just sayin’

Hiya sistahs!

Today’s sneak peek involves another one of my favorite characters… our little naughty (but mean well) chicks. … I think I mentioned before how I really see them as little minions LOL.. they really mean to help but they ALWAYS get into trouble… and they seem to always come in as everyone’s assistant LOL.

You can see our little chicks HERE with SAGE loves Science

you can also see them HERE sprinkled in with our Petunia images…  BUT WAIT.. they are up to no good again.. LOL.. you will see throughout this release!

Now this image I introduce you to today, the chicks were up VERY early and decided to help their family tri the tree.  HOWEVER…. they got a little OUTTA control…. a little TANGLED… I think they had TOO much fun LOL..

Meet TRIM THE TREE– available on AUGUST 17th.. I think I can even hear their little voices saying WEEEEEEEEE1.. I especially love the one that thinks the ornament is a sled or a tube and decided to roll on it LOL.. I SERIOUSLY think my stamps are alive LOL

I dunno.. just one of my crazy Bella ideaRs.

So please DO join us every 1st Tuesday of every month to see what we are up to :).. well I would prefer if you joined me every day by subscribing to my blog (in the middle to the right of the blog, you will see options to subscribe) .. my newsletter  ( you will see the subscription box at the bottom of the screen.. and I promise I don’t bombard with emails :O)

Another great way to follow my antics is via Instagram (@stampingbella).. via twitter (which I really don’t like LOL- @stampingbella) and via Facebook (@stampingbella)…   We also have an AMAZING sistahood group on FB where you can all share your creations… get feedback.. blab.. meet sistah friends… get inspired..  you can find this group HERE

Tomorrow our new banners go live and our new stamp of the month is introduced!  I LOVE THE FIRST OF THE MONTH!  But what I love MORE is…. CRAZY TUESDAY this coming Tuesday! Where we have a 24 hour CUH-RAZY sale of a few selected stampies and offer them at CUHRAZY prices!  So Stay TOONED for TOOSDAY n’k?  (don’t worry, I will remind you LOL)

So tomorrow I am going to my “happy place”… This year I am staying up in Collingwood, Ontario for the whole month of August!  I am so grateful for this month but I just packed my whole studio to bring with me.. (Ryan still doesn’t know what’s going in the car.. LOL I am sure you will hear him from wherever you are once he feasts his eyes on the LOOT).  I will be working every day and keeping in touch with my sistahs..   (I am planning on coloring lots.. and gonna try to learn new techniques to share with all of you… i.e. PLEATS.. my BIGGEST ENEMY! LOL)   you can take THIS sistah out of Bellaland but ya CANNOT take Bellaland out of dis SISTAH.. LOL.. I never take vacations.. I’m ALWAYS plugged in.. 24/7/.
