Eat, Drink & Be Merry

A quick card I started last night but had to wait to finish up this morning because the snowflakes were in my scrappy room and Rob was in bed asleep. I used the sketch from Creatively Yours and flipped it on its side. Love my Bella stamps - I got my first ones in January if I remember right and I'm so hooked on them!!! It's so bad I hardly pull out any of my other stamps unless it is a manufacturer specific stamp! I have so many stamps that are being neglected!!!


Yeah, so why with Christmas so early huh? When I took my Copic class the other day it was at the local stamp store going out of business. I had a discount for taking the class off my entire purchase and since money was tight I wasn't gonna buy a thing. Well, I saw the little sentiment stamp and got it for $2 and some change (normally $7) and knew right away which Bella stamp I was gonna use. The only part I wasn't sure about was the Santa hat - I needed a hat that was proportionate to my Bella girl. I dug through my other Bella stamps and found one of Bella decorating the tree and **DING DING** I would just stamp her, cut out the hat and layer onto my Bella w/a martini in her hand!!!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'!

Karen that's awesome!! Don't feel bad, i have a whole tub full of stamps that i've neglected as well.. *sign*

Again, wonderful card! I love it!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
