While combing my hair now, I'm wonderin' what dress to wear now...

What a fun day!! No particular reason, I'm just in a good mood. I'm watching Lost (yes, totally addicted), just finished some cards, and here's one of them....and I'm really happy about how it turned out! Love the layout...whaddyathink?

Sooo....I've heard from my girl Em that there's gonna be a party tonight! And I'm hosting some challenges! Are you a bellaholic? Wanna see some new stuff? Then join us in the Stamping Bella Member forums on Splitcoast at 8:30 (central) for some fun, challenges, and brand new rubbah! And trust me, Sistahs, you will LOVE what's coming!!!

To celebrate, here's a bright, shiny bella card for ya. I stamped Savvyshoppabella in Versafine Onyx black ink and watercolored her with my Niji waterbrush & reinkers. I'm trying out the Adirondack dye reinkers... (found some today at the Scrap Pad with Susan & Jen!) and so far I'm impressed with the intensity of the colors. The Olive panel was first dry embossed with the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder (for Cuttlebug), then heat embossed with Versamark & Iridescent Ice EP. I added the sentiment, layers, Diamond Stickles, and Swarovski Crystals for a sparkly, happy project.

It has been a long day, people, so I'll catch you either tonight in the Bella forum or tomorrow, right here! Have a great Friday!

How rockin' is that?! I actually have a green faux croc purse that looks just like your bg. Though I've never actually used it.

love the card...I made my way over to your blog via Susan's. My MIL lives in Midlothian, on Bryson Lane. All the steps you did on that olive paper really paid off on the finished product. I love it!
