Waiting on my Bella's...not very patiently I might add....

I finally did it. I broke down and bought contraband stamps and I am sitting on my thumbs while I wait for them to arrive. I couldn't stand it any longer....I had to have a Bella....well several if we are being honest. I LOVE THE BELLAS as do many other stampers out there. Haven't seen the Bella's? Oh, look at what you're missing . I can promise you, you too will have to have the Bella's. I also promise to have something so happy stamped on my website as soon as I get them. I don't think pacing at the mailbox or the front door at this point, is making them come any sooner.

Unfortunately, this month I have to make three sympathy cards. I am hopefully that my run of threes is finished and there won't be anymore sad news coming to this house for awhile. I had been wanting to test out some more color challenges from Splitcoast Stampers (see the link on the left), so I used them as the basis for these two cards. It can really be a challenge especially if you are jumping completely out of your comfort zone like I did with this card. I would not classify myself as earthy or near earthy or earth like. I am from earth, but that's about as close as I am going to get, so I really struggled with this card. I am happy with the results however.

This is the other one I created. I love the Au Chocolate paper in the SU Spring Mini. I punched just a little piece for under my clear button and then sponged on the saffron to make it match. I really like how it turned out.

I hope you will enjoy these. If you do, please feel free to leave a comment. Even if you don't you can still leave a comment. Is anybody out there? (Loud echo.....) If you want specifics on which stamps, paper etc. I used, you can check out my splitcoast gallery.

It is so my lucky day....Stan the UPS Man just arrived with some FREE stamps. Wooppeeee!!! This is one happy stamper. I can't wait. It's the Office Accoutrement set I have had my eye on. Man do I love FREE stamps. Hopefully I can runaway to the Bunker sometime tomorrow for some shtampin' fun. Cheerio!
