Bella Monday



Good Monday Morning and I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend!

Personally I had a great and productive weekend! Card fever hit home and I was "busy as a bee" creating cards. I tell ya' its a wonderful feeling when you get this sudden burst of creative energy....you really don't want to stop for anything!!! lol

Today's card features Lattebella enjoying a cup of latte and I'm rather fond of this Bella Stamp. In my mind... if you love your cup of latte, coffee, tea or hot chocolate you can really relate to this stamp! As I'm sitting here, the aroma of my coffee makes me wanna smile....hmmmmmmmm good! I know I'm a silly ole fart! lol

Back to the card....the Designer Series Paper I chose for this card is Pacific Point. I LOVE this color!!! The shade of blue is awesome and the coordinating papers are a dream to work with. I know most of you have heard other stampers confessing their love for SU's New In-Colors, but honestly the vibrancy of these colors are awesome!! The card stocks used are SU's Pacific Point and Papertrey Inks Stampers Select. The stamp is Lattebella by Stamping Bella and the sentiment is from MFT.
As usual...I colored in my image using Copic Markers and matted my image with Nestabilities oval dies. To embellish my card I did a bit of sewing, added photo corners using SU's corner punch, added flowers and a bit of extra fine glitter.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope you have a terrific day!
