Big Blossom Bella

Oh 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 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 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!!!

Hoppy birthday!

We drove to Winnipeg, Manitoba this weekend. The weather on Sunday was horrible...Raining and Snowing. We were very glad to leave that storm behind on our way back to Saskatchewan. I did a little shopping at Costco and found the box of ribbon everyone has been raving about over the last few months. Wow! is really nice ribbon..and at such an affordable price.. 40 spools for $24.99!! I would have liked to checked out a scrapping or stamping store there but there wasn't time...maybe next time.
Today I have a Birthday Card to share. My daughter has had this Su set Unfroggetable for over a year. I've always liked it and finally bought it a month ago. Isn't he the cutest little froggy?

To make this card I used Michaels cardstock and Costco's printed papers. I used H2o's for the painting. Gold embossing for the crowns. The ribbon is just from Dollar Store.
I hope everyone is enjoying signs of Spring. The temp. here right now is 1°C and the rest of the week even warmer. Hurray!! for Spring!!

Spring Bella

It looks like spring is finally on its way here. The temps. have warmed up and the snow is melting. My husband and I went for a nice walk tonight on Pavement!! It was wonderful!
I have a new Bella Card. I enjoyed using some spring colors. The yellow cardstock is from Michaels, rose cardstock is from Joe Annes. The green paper (embossed with the Cuttlebug) is from Costco. I really don't know where the patterned paper is from. I used prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits on the Bella image. Hi There is from SU. I used SU ribbon and flower punches to make the flowers. I've accented the hair and flowers with Stardust pens. I am anxiously waiting for my Spring Mini order from should be here early next week..Yay!!
