    Thanks to Amanda…aka amandabella for sending me to this site! Cool and cute cards. i love them, and am now your newest follower!

  7. Sandie says:

    Congrats to the new Bella Babes, such wonderful talent to join the team!!

  8. Great cards ladies – welcome new Bella’s! I’m excited that there is now a Bella that uses Tombow markers. I don’t have Copics, just Tombows and Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

    Migraines? I can relate, sort of. I have two rare brain disorders and they do not like changes in weather either, along with many other things. I don’t actually get migraines but I get extreme pressure and pain from Trigeminal Neuralgia. Yeah, stormy days are bad!

    Nice of your mother in law to help out too. Family is everything!
