Big Blossom Bella

Oh my..it has been a long time since I've posted. But here I am...and it is a beautiful day here in Saskatchewan. At least I think so ..after the cold rainy days we've been having.
Last weekend we went to Beinfait to visit our daughter and her husband. They recently bought a house there....it is Very Nice! We had lunch in Estevan and after lunch my daughter and I did a little shopping. We went to the nicest little stationary store with scrapbook and stamping supplies. We had a great time! ...they actually had a nice variety of clear stamps and hero arts. The prices were very reasonable. We bought some stamps and prima flowers to share....they had great colors. My daughter and I are indeed "Partners in Crime"....but... we can't really count the things we buy and share as "Spending Money" right?....I mean aren't we really "Saving Money??".....yup....and that's a Good Thing isn't it?
I have a card to share...... I love Bellas...
For stamps I used SU's Riveting, Big Blossom, Paisley Background, Linen Background, Amazing to Zany and Stamping Bella - Bella stamp. All inks are SU. The Bella image is painted with H20's. Stamping Bella is quite shimmery although you can not tell in the scan.
I used the Cuttlebug Swirl folder on green Costco paper. Cardstock is Costco and Michaels. The ribbon is from Michaels.
I am trying to learn to use the many different stamps I have been collecting..as I seem to be more of a collector than a doer. I am also a hopeless blog browser...I get so involved with enjoying other peoples blogs ..that I often use my crafting time up. I guess I am going to have to limit myself..but it is so hard .... there are so many wonderful blogs out there.
Thanks again everyone for checking out my blog and the "Wonderful Comments"
Have a Great Weekend!!!

I am a hopeless blog browser too! Of course, with 2 kids under foot (one who has a predilection for chewing stamps, tossing brads, licking ink, etc.), I only stamp at night! Great bella card...so neat with the big blossom!

This Bella card is yummy scrummy, so so pretty. I am just like yourself, love to buy and collect but never seem to have the time I would like to spend just crafting cause I seem to spend so much time on the net browsing blogs!!!

I can totally relate to your obsessions with blogs. I could sit there for hours everyday just soaking it all in. I love your latest card. Wow! I have to get myself some of those Bella stamps. They are to die for. And of course I love the big StampinUp! flower. Great colors, Great coloring, Great design! TFS! Have a great day.
