I sometime sit back and watch the girls playing and try and think of when I was there age. They love hearing stories of when I was a little girl and the things I did with grandma and grandpa. The one thing they love to do is come up here to my craft room and create their own projects. Yesterday afternoon Maria and Niki had a friend over and they came up here and had a blast! Niki has asked if I would post her creations. I told her I would love to share her work with all of you. :) I find that when the girls are up here there are times they can be a handful but when they work together like they were yesterday it inspires me! Now if I can only get them to try and clean up as they go along I would be

1st Full Stella!

I have admired "Stella" from the moment she was released. Fear of not doing her justice has kept me from purchasing her in the past. (Ok not totally true I do have "peekaboo Stella" but she is itty bitty.) Last week the girls and I went to visit Emily and her staff (waves Hi! to Nicky and Dina and yes Ryan and I must say every time I go the the Bella Headquarters I am drawn to the section where "Stella" is. I must have walked around for about 45 minutes trying to decide if I should take the plunge! Every time I did I was drawn to "gossipy Stella" so I knew I had to get her! Love the image not sure of my copic use but I guess I will have try her again. :)

My second card I fell in love with the image as soon as I saw her! "Nurse nellie to the rescue" is a must in my books! (ok again a little while lie all Bella products are a must!!!!!)

Ok now that I have the bug to create again I will say thank you for coming and viewing my creations and leaving your wonderful and encouraging comments!

P.S. For those that where following my mission on using all the stamps I have, the last two days are stamps that would fall into that category. :) Also seeing as I am computer ummmmmm lets say handicaped I will hopefully figure out this weekend how to post so that you can click on to the highlighted word and get to the correct link . :)

Another Attempt With My Copics

Now that I have made the time to get reacquainted with my craft room I am going to try and spend some time trying to figure out my Copics. .... lol. This is one of my favourite "tiddly inks" stamps from Stamping Bella. Ok who am I kidding I love them all!!!! I picked up "is that a cupcake on your head?" when she first came out but had not created anything with her. Having my Copics for a while now and still scared to use them in fear or messing up, I thought I would try them out on her. I think I like the way she turned out but it seams like something is missing? Oh well I always said post the good with the "ummmm I am not sure of it?"... lol.

Ok enough yapping the girls are playing quietly so I think I may have time for another card :) . Thank you for coming and taking a look!

Back!!! ... I Think !!!

First and foremost I want to say how sorry I am that I have been MIA. Seams as if life got the better of me this summer. Between a birthday (Niki turned the BIG 9 on July 10th) Woot!! Happy Birthday my baby girl! Our anniversary was July 16th (we made it to 13 My sister-in-law got married July 19th and the new puppy has finally come home. :) The girls have named her Nala. Some health issues got the better of me but I realized you do what you have to and everything else will fall into place.

I have seen all the beautiful creations the rest of the bella sistahs have posted and I am in awe!Well done to all of you!

My bestest DGF came and tried to save my sanity this past weekend. I have missed her like CRAZY since we have moved back to Ontario. (Michelle your the BEST and I cant wait to see you and Brian and the kids!!!) It was having her here for a few days that got me motivated to come up here and be creative again. :)

I meant to take a picture of her creations so I can show all of you her talented work but I am sad to say I forgot to :( . Hint...Hint.....Michelle!!!! (you can always email them to me :) .

Ok enough yapping I hope you enjoy my new cards and thank you so much for coming and taking a look. :)
