Day Four Of My Mission!!




Today has been a really fun day for me. I was able to go and visit everyone over at the Bella headquarters and hang out for a bit. The amount of talent of the staff Emily has and the sistahs that go in there to share their work is very inspiring to me.

I have found in the last year and a bit that I have been card making that there are many items I have bought that I can kick myself for when I think of the fact that I have not used any of it. The one thing I must say is a BIG Thank You to Emily, Nicky and Dena because all the items that I have purchased from Bella I have used.

Today I splurged just a bit.....(at least that's what I am going to tell Niko .... lol). I purchased my very first Copic's and OMG what can I say. They are worth every penny! Ok here is a something most of you dont know about me. I am color blind. Yes I am! (lol) So when Emily and Nicky mentioned that they would carry Copics and group them for those wanting to buy them how can I say NO! (lol) They just made my life so much easier. :)

On that note how can I not come home and not play with them. :)

Today I used them on Fifi. She is so cute and I have not used her in a while so as I am on a mission I thought I would try with her. It is my very first attempt with Copics and I know Emily and Nicky said that I would get better with practice. (Can anyone guess what I am doing tonight after everyone is in bed...lol)

The second stamp I am using is Reading Reverie. She is such a beautiful stamp. I have made a card using her in the past but today decided to use her on a post-it note holder. I am pleased with the results.

Ok enough yapping for today. I hope all you lovely ladies and gents are having a wonderful day and I will see you all with a new post tomorrow. TYFL!
