New Bella Card and Mingmei Munchies Winner....

Angel Wilde:

I have to agree with Linda, I am probably most like jammybella. As soon as I feel it's kosher enough, I am in my jammies for the night! I don't own a single bella. I've played with the images of others though and would love to have a few more to play with!!! they are so fun!!!

Thanks to everyone who left a comment:) I loved all the responses...lots of PMS bellas out there too eh?? Angel please send me your snail address @ and I will get your goodies out ASAP:)

Here is my first card to kick off Bella Week on my blog. As soon as I saw this Karen Lockart, "Gardener's know the best dirt" sentiment stamp(Ellen Hutson), I knew she'd fit perfect with Veggiebella. Veggie reminds me alot of Brea Van De Kamp, just missing a basket of fresh I started off by watercoloring Bella with my watercolor pencils and SU! re-inkers. This SU! watercoloring paper is heavy weight and works well for folks like myself who have no idea what they are doing! I tend to get too much water on the paper then have to go back and add color...and repeat the steps several times before I get it right! After I colored her in, I went over the whole image with my Stardust glitter pen and she's really sparkly! I matted my Bella on SU! Ballet Blue and Certainly Celery and then sewed her on! The PP is from K&CO(Addison line) and I matted again(same colors) and sewed(see a new trend here??) her on as well! For the sentiment I cut my PP just right to give the effect of a "picket fence", added the sentiment, prima's, and an adhesive pearl(Ellen Hutson) which I added Diamond Stickles to for added sparkle. The photo is a little dark, even after doing some photoshop, but you can click on it for a better view:)

I'm having oodles of fun sewing my cards this week. I generally reserve my sewing machine for fabric ONLY, but caved in to try it on CS. I've read several reviews about sewing on cards and getting the needle all sticky with tape etc. My solution for this problem: just put your tape in the center of your CS and not on the edges:) I learned after the first run thru that there had to be an easier way...PRESTO!
