Carole-ABELLA made a bright and springy card using KISSIEFACE!  Isn’t it cute?

DANABELLA made a beeyootiful card using KENYA KETTO

JENABELLA made a gorgeous card using APPLEY BOWL HUGGABUGG

LINDABELLA made a stunning card using HANGING SPORTS BLOCK

MEAHNIBELLA made a fabulous card using DAISY WITH A STELLA ON TOP



Aren’t they amazing?

I made a couple of cards this week as well.. in the Christmas theme.. yes I know it’s early but da PEEPS want DA CHRISTMAS!

In this card I used COSMO CRICKET PLAYDAY (Jolly by Golly collection), and the cutest SNOWMAN WITH A BIRDIE ON TOP stamp.  Sometimes you don’t know how or don’t feel like coloring a whole image.. so my philosophy is , why color the whole thing?  Using glittah and coloring certain elements of the stamp is ADORABLE and QUICK AND EASY!.  I used our variegated ribbon in MOSS.  I just love our variegated ribbon because it will pick up any shade that you are using! Extremely versatile, silky and luxurious!  I also used our new MAYA ROAD PEARL TRINKET PINS.. I just love them too.. and I find that they look like little snowmen..LOL.  I also used our BAZZILL POMPOM RIBBON in MARASCHINO (I cut up the pompoms and applied it to the end of his lonnnnng hat 🙂 )  I also used one of our newer embellishments called NAILHEADS they are teeny (3mm) and flat but raised JUST enough to give a little dimension.. LOVE THEM!!! and of course they come in several finishes *winks*

now for my SECOND card.. it was QUICK and EASY PEASY and I just love the crispness and elegance of it! first I CUTTLEBUGGED the front of the card in cuttlebug SNOWDOTS using my BIG SHOT machine.  I then tied a knot around the top using our JUICY CHERRY polkadotted ribbon and our new MARTHA STEWART GLACIAL SNOWFLAKE punch.  The amazing thing about this punch is that they punch out already “curled” and add such a dynamic touch to any card!  I adhered 3mm pearls to the center of each of these gorgeous snowflakes too.. LOVE IT!

hope you lovey DA cardsies (lol)

Mwah to da sistahs who have NO RAIN
