I have NEWS!

I've been keeping quiet for the past two weeks and finally, I get to share my news! Right before I left for NC, Emily of Stamping Bella invited me to join their design team. I desperately wanted to say yes right off the bat, but forced myself to think about it a little bit. It's not always easy doing what you love when you have to work a FT job, uuuggh. But, I thought I could handle it so I decided to give it a shot. 
And here it is....my first official Bellariffic Friday card! We are sewing (real or faux) this week, and I added some hand stitching with embroidery floss around the edges of my card. I love the colors of DMC floss, and if I could sew with it on my sewing machine, I would. But I can't, so I have to hand sew it. Not too big a deal, really. 


I just had to color up this adorable image of 'Ramona Loves Cake'. So stinkin' cute! I used my Copics and a Souffle pen for the polka dots on the cake. The sentiment is computer generated. 



The papers are from a digital paper collection from Design House Digital called 'Strawberry Patch'. They're all printed on Hammermill color copy paper.


Soooo, how'd I do as a Bella Babe? Thanks for visiting, I'd love to hear from you!
