Hey Ya All,
Another Stamping Bella.  She is one of my FAVORITES. Can't beleive how well she fits in to my dining room.  Not after all my failed attempts at trying to make a card for that room.
I used K&Company 24 sheet double sided 12x12 paper pack. It's the Tim Coffee Fall collection,Starbucks Coffee Bag, Cuttlebug Swirls Embossing Folder & Vintage Die Cut.
I used a rectangle shape for Bella, Circle with the Starbucks Symbol & a Square that the Starbucks Symbol is mounted on. I think that I have all the different shapes required. I 'm not sure what shape the Coffee Beans fell under.  And yes they are real coffee beans. Nick(husband)said it must have killed me to part with those 4 coffee beans.  The closest Starbucks is 50 miles one way from us here on the farm. Everyone have a good rest of the week & weekend.  I found a Shop when I went to visit my husband this past weekend.  I have pictures below my TPE challenge entry.  Check them out.
Thank you for considering my entry.

TPE Challenge #38 Ella's Kitchen

Hi Everyone,
Well, Savannah & I made it home from Atlanta late last night. (Driving in the rain & fog was lots of fun)
Continue to bottom for all the info. on my entry.  Had to show off hubby.

Nick (husband) made it as far as Atlanta late Friday night. So that we could spend more time together I went down to Atlanta. Why I'm telling you all this is because I found a Shop online in Marietta. Rubber Stamp Fantasy. Pictures Below my Challenge if you would like to check them out.
Now for my entry.
Black, Hardware & Distressing
I used a few of the items that I bought at Rubber Stamp Fantasy.

Ribbon, Sm. Airplane stamp (Memory Box), Hardware, Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist in Frost & Antique Brass, Lg. Eiffel Tower Stamp(challis & ross) from Michaels &Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Stamping Bella Image done on Vellum. Stamp Front & Color on Back w/pencils.  I did this when I was Scrap Booking alot.  Forgot about it until I saw a sample card in Rubber Stamp Fantasy & one of the customers asked how it was done & they were showing her how.  Distressing on the Eiffel  Tower Image was done with a heating tool & Glimmer Mist.  As you can see it gets hot enough that you could set your project on fire.  So do this near a sink where if you get it too hot you can get it under water fast. 

Sorry this was so long but I think that I have covered every thing.  So everyone have a nice rest of the week & a good weekend.  From what I'm hearing our weekend here will be wet.  So it lools like a card making weekend.  Don't forget to check out the pictures from Rubber Stamp Fantasy below.

Thank you for considering my entry.

DCRU Challenge Earthy

Earthy Challenge.   I just love this card. I hope the rest of you consider it  Earthy. This one kind of made it's self as I went along.  Had a bit of a problem getting it.  It's a Digi Wild Flowers Kids form Stamp Happens. My computer was having Hot Flashes.  But  Tonya took care of me.  This is sort of a Oopps card.  I'm still trying to figure out using markers so I'm still a little heavy at laying on color.  When I finished the art work I flipped the card over and liked the back better( where the color had bled through). I had to add the stems so if you are looking for this digie it will not have the same stems.  Well, some of what came through I didn't like and the more I tried to fix it the worse I was making it.  So I just tore that corner off.  And things just kind of went form there.
 If you can't tell ,I can't stand blank spaces.

I'm use to doing Scrap book pages where you do not have to worry about anyone seeing  the backs of brads.  So I covered them.  I thought the thread showing where I sewed the button on was a nice touch so I did not want to cover that.  And to balance out the inside I put a small image of the stamp at the bottom. That's the orig.digi stamp.

The finished card looks like I made it for this spot.  Like I said this one took on a life of it's own.

Everyone have a nice rest of the week and weekend.  Thank You for considering my entry.

Revised C4C7 Card

I couldn't take it any more.  My husband says that I have OCDD the first D is for Decorating.  Too bad it doesn't carry over into cooking and cleaning (according to HIM).  But what does he know, he isn't even in the country.

C4C7 Challenge

Another Bella.  Can you tell that I just got them?   It was all I could do to keep from putting a bow on this. I'm sure now that it has been entered in your challenge a bow will find it's way to this one.  It's late and my eyes are not working to well, so the picture isn't the best.  But if you click on it you can see it better. Thank You for considering my entry.

Pink Enlephant Challange #37 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Hope I did this right.  I'm still learning the lingo. The first time I read Sketch I thought I had to sketch the image. Since my Husband didn't make it in this weekend I had time to do my Bella stamps.  I just received them over the weekend.  This challenge was just what I needed.  After I got finished with the coloring I had no clue how I was going to do a card.  My brain was off even more than normal since hubby didn't make it in.   We are hoping for this coming weekend.  Everyone take care and have a nice week.
 Thank You for considering my entry.

Mo's Purple Challenge

Sorry Mo about your signature at the bottom of the art work. But in an effort to fix the bottom of the scarf you were lost.  I'm new at this and have not received my supplies yet. But after getting my Cuttlebug I've been going crazy to work on something. So improvised with what I could find around the house to do your Jingle Bells Digi Stamp.  I'm more than a little anxious about entering my card after seeing the other entries.  But here goes.
Thank you for considering my entry.
