Good old snail mail


     Mail is almost a thing of the past, well actual letter writing that is.  I always have tons of junk mail in my box.  The age of technology has all but made a pen or pencil obsolete.  Maybelline seems to have received a good old fashioned letter though and she's enjoying it out in the beauty of spring.  "Maybelline Loves Mail" is one of the newest stamp releases from Stamping Bella.
     Today is Bellarific Friday so it's time to see what all my team mates and the Stamping Bella Sistahood made for the last challenge which was this sketch.

sketch-7-april-11

     Maybelline was colored with Copics.  Here's her glamour shot.


     Hop on over to Blogabella and see what everyone created.  Next weeks challenge is to use one of those crazy Seniorita stamps from Christine Grove.  You can find them at Stamping Bella as well as other retailers.
     I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

4 Krafty Girls--anything goes
Aud Sentiments--sentiment for a friend
Moving Along with the Times--Easter/Spring
Oldie But a Goodie--April Showers Bring May Flowers (Papers and buttons are ancient)

     Have a fabulous weekend!

Supplies:
Paper--Echo Park "This and That", Bazzill, Copic XPress-it Blending card
Stamps--Stamping Bella "Maybelline Loves Mail", sentiment from Create with TLC
Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Wink of Stella Clear pen
Tools--MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flags Stax
Miscellaneous--buttons from my stash
