Timestamp: 2009-07-07 15:36:00 UTC

JACILYNN you have WON the $10 in BELLA BUCKS!! Please email me your information and I will send over the bucks!!

Ok, Now for a little bit of TOTALLY TERRIFIC TOOOOOSDAYS.. I decided to use one of Jessica Rose’s JOURNALING stamps ( gramophone) in a card!  I just love it for a music layout too… so here it is!

do you see all da glittah? and da BUTTON BONANZA and da HAMBLY PAYPAH?  I used our just a note stamp which is part of billboardabella’s words and the punch I used was a circle 7/8″ punch layered in a 1″ punch… is that YUMMY or what?  The great thing about the gramophone is that you can journal right in there on a layout or even stamp it inside the card with a personal note!  Hope you lovey it as much as I do 🙂

Now for a little personal story.. I AM IN LOVE WITH A NEW MAKEUP PRODUCT AND YOU NEED TO MARCH OUT AND GET ONE ASAP! LOL

I warn you not to read further if you are not interested in makeup..LOL.  So I have been convinced to buy the old fashioned eyelash curler.. I cannot tell you how many times I have PINCHED my lid and scabbed and scarred (LOL) because of that archaic thing (that cost me a kajillion dollars I might add..LOL).. AND I NEVER SAW RESULTS REALLY.. so then I saunter (uchh I wish I could saunter) into SEPHORA for my “fix” and I find the most amazing EYELASH FIBRE THINGAMABOB

so you apply this to your lashes and the “fibers” attach to the end of your lashes .. you apply it as you would a mascara.. and then you put your mascara on top!   it’s honestly AMAZING.. LOVE THIS

So sistahs,

today you got a little bit of everythin’.. LOL .. ya got da card, da winnahs, and da makeup!

Mwah to da sistahs who need da fibers..

Em

Sketch for DA WEEK!

winners to be announced a little later sorry.. the day just flew by!!!!

here it is! sponsored by JENABELLA..

isn’t it FUNNNNNNN?!?!?!?

Card submission is to be emailed to emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday night July 9th.  Subject line should be bellarific friday July 10!

Have fun sistahs and I can’t wait to see your creations!!

MWAH!

dum da da dum!!! it’s BELLSHMIFIC SHMIDAY (bellarific friday for those that are *ahem* not so familiar with my language)

HELLLOOOOOO sistahs!!!!  How has your week been?  Sorry I have been MIA.. been a little crazy but NO EXCUSE.. so I will commit to more entries n’k?  My mom and I had a great time in “buffalo”.. but  we didn’t really go to buffallo… LOL  we actually snuck to a little teeny tiny hidden away casino.. (our little secret) and had a great time!!!!  Does anyone else like to gamble a little? any funny stories?? Ok, I will share mine from just this past tuesday but really I am a little EMBARRASSED so don’t make fun of me k?  pLomise? K.. here goes!

So I sit myself down at a LET IT RIDE table with a little side of THREE CARD POKER.. VERRRY comfy womfy… and on my first hand I pull back a bet (NOT GOOD WHEN YOU HAVE A GREAT HAND).. the guy next to me almost punches me and announces that I lost $10… Ok so that is how my first hand goes.. I claim that the reason I made this mistake is due to lack of caffeine…. SO what do I do??? I order a coffee of course!   So here comes my coffee.. I am sipping, I am happy, I am winning… and then what do you think happens?  *insert shriek here*  Yup, you guessed it…  I SPILLED THE COFFEE ALLL OVER THE CLOFF (cloth) TABLE!!!!! so the whole table were shooting me the EVILIST looks..  I was apologizing to death.. sweating… and the pitboss gets paper towels and then walks away.. then thinks about it.. then comes back…(still doesn’t wipe the table).. I am sitting in horror staring at the dribbles of coffeee spreading all over the CLOFF.. freaking out internally… and finally he decides to close the table for HOUSEKEEPING to reopen in 1/2 an hour…. So I apologize again and continue to freak out internally and of course return in a half an hour.. only to see that they ran out of chips and the pit bosses were staring at each other at a loss of what to do.. at that point, I took my CLUMSY self out of my chair, and left..  I just couldn’t take the clueless looks the pit bosses had.. HMPH.. double hmph.. triple hmph… LOL.. so that is my little anecdote for the day… NUGGET..LOL  you likey da story?

I was so excited for this birthday card cuz A) this is how she sees me B) I be skinny in this image C) i be veryyyy sexy.  I was thinking to myself.. “self, this is a gorgeous image but I no have  a stamp for this…WEIRD”..

The next day, I get these… hmmmmm.. first one from PAULA..  and I am thinking.. SHE LOOKS LIKE ME (from the waist up).. and I say WHAT IS GOING ON??????  and then I open another envie.. from

and this envie contained KARENABELLA’s card… HMMMMM I say

the next day I got another envelope..LOL.. HMMMMM squared from KIMMIEBELLA

Now I am convinced something is going on…LOL (I know I am a smidge (love that word) slow).. I call Nickabella and ask what is going on?? I am getting these gorgeous card with a STUNNING character (if i do say so myself..LOL) and I don’t even have this stamp?!?!?!  So nickabella laughed at me and said that Christy was up to something..LOL.. she had planned with Nicky and Shannan a little surprise by providing these images and to send them to me in a card..OMG.. I had to email  Christy and ask her if she was NUTS?!  And she just said she loooooved me.  And I SOOOO LOVE HER!! Thank you all so much for making this such a surpRIZE…!!

Nicky used the dots folder from the new sizzix embossing folder DOTS AND FLOWERS set.  For the bottom right square nicky nested the SMALL FANCY SQUARE PUNCH on the LARGE FANCY SQUARE PUNCH and stamped our CELEBRATE 3 line. HOW GORGEOUS IS THIS CARD?

Danabella made a stunning card using WASABI KETTO’S FLOWER (2 sizes in the package) and our sentiment… is it not STUNNING??????

Jenabella made a BEEYOOTIFUL card using Monarch HUGGABUGG popped in just the right spot!  LOOOVE IT!

Karenabella made a STUNN-INGGGG card using our PERCOLATOR CIRCLE.  Isn’t it GORGE?? (short for gorgeous.. another entry into the BELLARIFIC dictionary).. she popped and dotted.. I honestly feel like I can POUR from the percolator..LOL!

Lindabella made a stunnalicious (yet another word) using ANISE KETTO’s FLOWERS.. so colorful so beeyootiful.. and she used one of my favorite sentiments .. and the STAGING?  omg

Paulabella made a card not to be believed (losing my touch at SUPERLATIVES..LOL)!  She used MAISY KETTO and Maisy Ketto’s CROWNS in such a fabby dabby way!
