Hiya sistahs.. me again πŸ™‚ LOL.. sick of me yet?Β  Im kinda getting sick of myself.Β  Today is Weigh in day.. BLECH.. not looking forward to itΒ  .Β Β  Anyone have anything planned for this weekend?Β  It’s “FAMILY DAY” here so we have Monday off!Β  That’s not to say that I , DA BELLA, have it off.. but most people do LOL.. Oh and the ARENA… as much as I complain about my life in an arena I enjoy EVERY SECOND of it.. watching Tyler goal tend is just an honor to watch… really he is THAT good.Β  Although all the parents know how stressed I am through the games and when I am really stressed I put my hood on my head and hope to become invisible LOL.. can anyone relate?Β  Being a goalie parent is RE-HEALLLLY stressful.Β  hmph.

Ok enough about me .. where should I start today?Β  Ah yes…. A SNEAK PEEK!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, one must have a good solid generic images in their stamp library.. some juicy good florals that can be for any occasion.Β  A stamp you will go back to over and over again.. and this is one of them.. the shading of it, the relaxation of coloring it.. no stress just colouring whilSt watching tv, feeding the kids/animals etc… I would stamp these 100 times, color them and when ANY occasion arises, I would slap it on a card and VOILA!Β  PERF-ection.. oh and it doesn’t hurt that it has such a wonderful sentiment to go with it πŸ™‚


And Elaineabella not only coloured it but also placed it on a card… gorgeous oui oui?


To me this is just simple, gorgeous and has so much to say.. the flower is so effective and powerful!

Ok Now for BELLARIFIC FRIDAY!! WOOHOO we have some new sistahs playing (WELCOME!!!) and we have a new BABEROONI in da HOUSE!!!
