I Caved

Well, long time--no post. Though, I am not really sure that anyone really noticed. My dear husband was out of town and the kids had multiple snow days, so I had to devote a little more time to my first job. LOL!

Well, I caved into peer pressure, flocked to the masses, whatever you want to call it... I have Bellas and Primas (just like all of the cool kids at Splitcoast). And you know what.....I like it. (he-he). I am not normally a "follow the trend" kind of girl, but today I am. I held out quite a while about the Primas (frankly, I do not like the little ones). I went to the not so local-lss today and there were these daisy--like flowers by the check out--and they matched all of the paper I picked out... And I had a coupon.

Then there are the Bellas. (Available at Stamping Bella) I do not have any stamps even similar to these, so it seemed like it was worth a try. The one used below is "Walking Bella". I got it mainly for my older dd. She LOVES little dogs. However, this card was made for a church friend that brought me dinner last week while my dh was out of town (Pork Marsala, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Peas, and Bread). This stamp is quite "her", too.

The only SU! products I used was the ink and the cardstock (Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Bashful blue) and the sentiment (from Fancy Flexible Phrases). The patterned paper is Chatterbox Garden Walls, the brad is SEI, the flower is from Prima Marketing, and I purchased the ribbon at Walmart.

Well, anyway I had fun. And HOPEFULLY these new stamps and papers will bring some sunshine into someone else's life, too.
