Goodies in a Bottle

I signed up to participate in the Bella Sistahs again becuase I had so much fun with Patsy (even though we were both crazy busy). This time my Bella Sistah is Liane Donovan. (Yes, we have the same name just spelled differently). We also have the same initals and we both have April Birthdays. I think Tangii did a good job of matching us up.

Anyway, first I received a darlong card packed full of flowers from Liane (sorry no pic). Then just a few days later I received the most amazing mail. I pulled this bottle right out of my mailbox. Imagine my surprise. I didn't even know you could mail a two liter bottle. I looked at the Baloonabella stamped on the address label and knew it was from my sistah. Then I started looking inside. It was stuffed full of goodies. It was amazing how much ribbon, brads, paper clips, buttons, etc. she was able to stuff inside that bottle. There was also a darling card with winobella and an ATC using her too. I couldn't believe it. I wanted to take pics and I had left my camera at work so I just looked at it all in amazement for a couple of days. Here is what I found when I finally opened it up. AMAZING!!! Liane is the bestest Sistah!!

Hello Again

Wow I can't believe that it has been more than a month since I have posted anything here. Life has been a bit crazy. Anyway, I have a bunch of I have been wanting to post so I'll start with a couple of bella cards.

This one is my original for Tangii's shoebox swap. I lovey the sweetybellas and the friends paper seemed like a perfect fit.

This one is the Saint Patrick's Day card I did using a goodluckabella image I got from an image swap. The DP is from the DCVW spring glitter pack and I embossed the glitter green paper with my cuttlebug. I think she turned out so cute.
This last one is one I did for one of the Bella Release Party challenges. This is Ella and Loo Loo and I just love how sweet they are. It was a bling challenge so there is lots of sparkle for this little princess. The BG paper is glittered. I used the hot fx crystals from stamping bella on her crown and lots and lots of tiny prima flowers with rinestone centers finish it off. I love the soft spring colors and I think she came out so sweet. I think this one will be a birthday card for my niece's daughter who is turning seven and it quite the little princess herself.

Thanks for looking. It feels good to post again.
