Warm Hugs and Exciting News

Today I received some exciting news, I belong to the Bellacholicsanonymous Yahoo group which is a wonderful group of women that love Stamping Bella's just like I do and the group was looking for a few women to post monthly challenges. So I thought it sounded like fun, so I submitted my information and guess what? I'm now one of the official "Challenge Queens" for the group, how cool is that! What a great title too huh, it totally works for me, lol! My challenge, during the time that I reign is the Anything Goes Challenge which will be on the 4th Friday of each month. It sure would be fun if everyone joins in on the challenges starting this Friday October third with the Embellishment Challenge!

It's always a catch 22 (were does that phrase come from?) I work on Bella cards and miss doing Stampin' Up, I work on Stampin' Up cards and then I miss my Bella's. I need to mix it up and live on the wild side, lol!


Supplies: Snowbunnybella, Warm Hugs - Stamping Bella, Atomic Turquoise designer paper - Sandylion, Cuttlebug embossing, Ribbon, Copics, Dazzling Diamonds, Pop dots. Colors: Taken with Teal, Certainly Celery, Night of Navy, Whisper White.

These are sooooo beautiful, love the DP's colors and your coloring is awesome!! I'll have to try to get into the Bellaholics anonymous again. I signed up, starting getting 9 million e-mails and got out of town!! LOL!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! Tomorrow the hair will be brown, it's so destroyed from the sun!!

Love your snobunnybellas. I ordered her in July for my Christmas cards and I planned on coloring her in a light mint green with brown boots...totally non-traditional Christmas colors. Nice to know I'm not the only one that pictured her in green. TFS Congrats on being chosen as one of the "Queens"
