Don't forget about the chance to win Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Retro. Get the details here.

To say that I have created a stamping monster might be a bit of an understatement. As you all know, Izzy was sick for a while and she ended up missing 2 weeks of church. She was pretty tramatized about that and the fabulous teachers sent Izzy a get well soon/we miss you card. She was so excited. She carried it around for 3 days! Here is Izzy, Auggie and Izzy's prized card. Well after she felt better, we had to go up to the stamping room and make thank you cards. Isn't she great. Fortunately I received my prize package from Lori. It had some Bellas and many other goodies including some flowers. I really don't have any flowers so Izzy thought they were the best things ever created.
Here is Izzy's card for her teachers. She picked out all of the colors and it was her idea about the butterflies! She is so stinking cute when she is creating. I am seeing her own stamping table in the near future, LOL!
Of course I had to make a fun card with my new goodies as well. I would have never picked out hippiechickbella, but now that I have her - YUMMY!!!! This was the picture for the Bellarific Friday challenge. Isn't that fun.
Here is my take. I used this Card Patterns sketch from earlier in the week. I wasn't really sure how the Bella challenge would work, so I wanted to make sure I had a card to enter therefore I made 2 cards with the sketch.

Groovy! I tried a few new things on this card. I like visual idea of the paper curled up. I thought it kind of mirrored the look of buttons. I also loved the new ribbon crunching that I learned at Kristing Werner's site (Link on the side). She is so creative and I really like new ways to use my supplies. The dsp was one from my stash, but it seemed to be very 70s and the colors seemed to really match the inspiration piece. I had to stack three dimensionals to pop the main image up enough. It is really tons of fun!
It's a good life!

Izzy is just so adorable. She reminds me of my grandaugher, Lexi. She is always in my craft room making things with me. Isn't it so much fun? Have a great day.
