That's Amore

Well, it's Week 4 of the Stamping Bella search for a new Bella Babe!  I have entered each week and it's been a lotta fun! As I said before - I really won't be heartbroken if I'm not the new Babe - I'm glad I was able to participate using all my new Stamping Bella images!!!  The creations that the current Bella Babes have made and the other 'contestants' have been INCREDIBLE!!!  Be sure to check them out at the Stamping Bella Blog.

The final challenge was a free-for-all. Whatever you wanted to make it was your choice! So I chose to color up Kissy - a Mo Manning rubber stamp.
I pulled out my Papertrey Ink paper and loved the flower background so I decided to use it as my color palette for her outfit. Of course I used my prisma pencils on Bella's Bestest Paper.  I cut her out using my Nesties oval scallop die and then I made a few flowers using some flower punches and brads.

Since she was puckering up for a big kiss - I used my Amuse sentiment and lastly - I gave her a nice diamond tiara with Martha Stewart glitter!

On a side note - I have to say that I LOVE that Picasa 3 now give you a choice to use Picnik to edit your photographs!!  I never seem to be able to take a great picture of my cards and Picnik REALLY helps bring out the best of your cards. If you haven't tried it - I DO recommend it!!!

Well, we are in HOT HOT HOT Louisiana for the National Professional Fastpitch Softball Championship.  Our friend is the Commissioner of the league and we went down to support her and the league for their first ever championship.

So - in case you leave any comments - I'll return the favor when I return in a few days!!!
