Bella is Taking Over

I finally managed to get some photos off the camera - actually DH did it. I don't know what he did, but I won't dwell on it....I'll just be thankful that he is a) more patient than I am and b) more computer savvy than I am.

This first card is actually an ATC for a swap that Katie hosted on the bellaholics group. I'm very sorry about the photo (perhaps I should have DH take my photos too). When I colored this, I had much better shading that went from dark to light. Now it just looks messy!! ICK!!! That big gem was from a pouch of sparklies I picked up in the Target $1 spot. Gotta love that section!! But I better hit it just right or there is hardly any of the scrapping stuff left! Such a bummer for a crafty girl!

This next card is for the Bella swap on SCS. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I love sketches and this is one I got from the bella forum at SCS. But I really wish people would post measurements for them. I hate trying to figure out how big an element is supposed to be!

Swaps are fun - and I always love seeing what other gals created. But I think I'm done with them for awhile. And I like my bella stamps, but I'm ready to move on to other stamps --- like SU! stamps. I signed up as a demo and my kit should be coming today!!Too much other stuff that I want to do that gets pushed to the side! I have another bella card I did for a swap, but didn't photograph it either before I sent it so I'll have to wait for it to come back to post. I don't even know if I'll get my own card back - I sure hope so 'cuz I thought it was just so cute!! I was really happy with how it turned out!

Make it a beautiful day!!

These are really great Bella swaps, your coloring on the Rockabella is awesome! I like the streak of red hair and the designer paper you used!

Good luck on your new demonstrator ship with SU!
