Babies, babies everywhere


Don't know about where you live but we seem to have new babies popping up every week or two.  The DT at Mo's Digital Pencil has had a baby of their own arrive on the scene.  Our lovely and talented Franz recently gave birth to a handsome little boy named Filippo.  We decided to throw her a virtual baby shower over at the Clubhouse blog.  You can find our cards posted there throughout the week and some adorable pictures of the new little Italian heart throb.

We're also hosting a new contest.  Bet you can't guess what the theme is.....

Babies!!!!!

We'd love to see your baby cards created with any of Mo's baby images, girl or boy.  There's a rubber stamp prize up for grabs.

Higher!


     Have you got great plans for the weekend?  Looks like everybody around here needs to put theirs on hold.  I think we're in for a nasty rainy few days.  Not these two though.
     It's Stamping Bella's Bellarific Friday which means new cards and a new challenge.  I've used Ramona and Teddy in a balloon for my card.  Last week's challenge was to use this sketch.


     Don't know what's up lately but you may have noticed that I have been fussy cutting the images on most of my cards.  I added a bit of stitching to the wood grain panel and cut the clouds, ribbon and bow with stitched edge dies.  The balloon is covered in Wink of Stella and some Stickles on the dots and I threw in a few sequins for fun.


     I used the accompanying sentiment on the inside of the card.


     Hope you enjoyed the card.  Next weeks challenge is "Birthday Wishes".  To play along just use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements.  Get your project photographed and emailed to Em at (emily at stampingbella dot com) with Bellarific Friday challenge and the date of the challenge in the subject line by Thursday evening.  Em offers a $25.00 Bella Bucks prize to one lucky winner every month.

Going for a ride


     I hope it's as beautiful where you are as it is here today.  It's a great day for a bike ride!  I made this card for a friend at church who likes to ride bikes.  They can be a bit dangerous though.  
     A preacher friend of ours was recently hit and he wasn't even moving!  Poor guy thankfully didn't get hurt badly even though he took a tumble across the hood of the car.  Sad thing is the person didn't even stop to see if he was okay.  He's back on his bike, but he says he seems to have developed a great fear of white Honda Accords.  LOL
     I've used Mo's fabulous Big Guy's Bike.  This set is really cool because it has add-ons like baskets filled with assorted things and this cool helmet I merged onto Big Guy's head.


Colors Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13
helmet Y11, Y21, YR23, R35, R37
shirt W1, W3, W5

     Some of you are probably wondering where I've been since I haven't bee visiting much lately.  Things seem to be coming up right and left and I've been super duper busy.  Family stuff, church stuff, and if you haven't seen it yet, we have a new Mo's Clubhouse Blog up and running and I'm in charge of that.  We're hoping to make it a really cool place for you to visit.  We have lots of inspiration being posted there AND we have a cool "Spring" coloring contest going on with some Mo rubber stamps as prizes.  Hope you'll check it out.
     I'm off to try to whittle down my list of a million things to accomplish today.  Hope you have a blessed day!

Paper--My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline--Dilly Dally", Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card

The musician's birthday

For Brooklyn


     Last week some young friends of ours, a pastor and his wife, became parents for the first time.  Unfortunately it was a little bit ahead of schedule.  The mother was hit suddenly with a bad case of eclampsia and they had to take the baby early.  Little Brooklyn only weighs about 4 pounds, but she is doing great and so is mom.  We had a baby shower scheduled for the end of this month, but now its a welcoming party!
     Our Stamping Bella challenge  last week was to use this sketch.


     As you can see from my card I added a few more square in the mix.  LOL  I used a die from Pretty Pink Posh to make those sweet little stitched squares.  The image is probably my favorite baby image of all times.  It's from Mo Manning and it's called "Spit Happens".  Brooklyn's mommy had pretty red hair and we think baby girl might too.


Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R30
