Now that you are inspired.. GO AND CREATE!!!  (I’m a little bossy today..LOL)…  Next week’s challenge is “BANNERIFIC”.. make a banner on your card.. cut it out and collage it, stamp it.. it can be pennants, banner.. anything along that theme 🙂  k?  I’m waiting…

Did you make it yet?


Don’t forget to leave a comment and just say hi so your name is entered in to possibly win $10 in bella bucks next week!

And just keep visiting because you may just see who our new artist is next week… and boy you better save your pennies… 9 new images.. TDF.  Fantastically amazing.


__OOPS almost forgot the NEWS… It’s regarding our shipping.  We have had to remove our $4.99 shipping from our website.. for the last year I have realized how much money I have lost.. and that money can go towards more releases, no?  So I have gotten rid of UPS (had issues with their deliveries) and have gone with Canada Post.. their rates really are the best and the most economical.  Postage and Courier rates have gone up exponentially in the past couple of years and I have not followed suit.. so 2013 is the time where I felt I needed to do this.  I hope da sistahs understand.. It was a difficult decision as I am always trying to please but this one I had to make..

  4. Janis Reid says:

    I really liked the card using the stamp “Puff” the dragon. Is that stamp still available or is it from the past?

  5. Susie Sugar says:

    Great cards!

    For the shipping, does this mean shipping costs will be by weight for any size order?

    I noticed under ‘Latest News’: “Introducing Bella’s $4.99 anywhere in the world shipping!”. And the shipping page still indicates $4.99 for orders over $55.

    Just wondering before I place my order. 😉

  7. dianayee says:

  11. Violet says:

    Great cards once again! The shipping charges are what make me decide to or not to order from any company!…especially the ones in the U.S.A. I have canceled many an order when I saw the shipping charges!

  12. Deborah B says:

    Thanks to the ladies who inspire us! Great cards. Glad to hear you have changed from UPS. They are not reliable in my area. I would rather pay a little more and know I will get the package.
