Lookie what I got in the mail today! My bestest friend Michelle sent me this adorable Bella card. I don't own any Bella stamps...yet... But they are quite tempting! This one is SO cute! Michelle says the B on the bag is for Beckie, not Bella. ;o)

She used the awesome new pallet of prints paper from SU on this card so, I know she loves me. She even cut the little dress out of a sheet! That paper is hoard paper! I can't even bring myself to use it yet! Thanks for making my day Michelle!

This next card is one I actually made today. I was playing around with the Au Chocolate paper and loved the effect I got when I brayered over it. On this one, I used Pretty in Pink to brayer over the chocolate. I also sponged the edges with chocolate chip ink. It really changes the look of the paper and makes it look more shabby chic. I love it! The stamp is from the soon to be retired Girlfriends set. I have gotten a lot of mileage out of that set. I think it is one of my daughter's favorites. For the flower at the bottom, I used my SU daisy punch. I punched out a daisy and then used the negative to trace a daisy on vanilla paper. I colored it in with my M3 markers and used the same punch to punch it out. Cool, huh? Maybe not a totally new idea, but new to me!
