Yay, another Bella!!

Morning all and I hope you are well on this positively ghastly Saturday, well it is here in Dorset UK anyway!! It's blowing a gale and the rain is lashing down even though it's really warm!! 

I've added another Bella to my collection and here she is...with her friend too!!




She was coloured with Promarkers and I have used more of my Coffee in the Arbour pad. The old SB die was dusted off too and the layered frill was made using a Lawn Fawn die on off cuts of paper (too special to waste!!). While I was rummaging through my dies I found a Whimsy set that hadn't seen the light of day for a very long time so I used one for the corners and then heat embossed with Shabby white Frantage. LOTV .

Here are the challenges I was inspired by

In the pink #51  - Spots and/or stripes
Crafting with Dragonflies #37 - Pink cards for Breast Cancer Awareness
Divas by Design - Texture
 (Heat embossing, paper frilled border, twine)
Allsorts #281 - Embossing
 (heat embossed corners)

Right O, that's me for now best get off to Saisnbury's before the lanes flood!!

See you soon xx

  18. Awwww.... how cute! I love the Wild Rose elephants and you've made the sweetest card with those little cuties. Also, that's a smokin' good bow... I am bow challenged. I can tie a knot but usually avoid a bow.

Last night I enjoyed Heavy Horsepower and got to see some of the lovely country around your area. Hope the rain has eased today and that you have some nice sunshine.
