Content-to-be-a-bella

The snow is headed our way, were suppose to get any where from 6-10" of snow starting tonight and going into tomorrow. My kids are hoping for a snow day tomorrow and I'm wishing I had gotten some of their presents wrapped earlier this week when they were in school and I had the chance to get it done. Tomorrow is their last day of school and then their out until after the new year.
I made this Content to be a Bella card for my daughter who says she never gets anything in the mail. My daughter Gabrielle is a sweet hearted eleven year old girl who is a good student, has lots of friends and helps out around the house by doing her chores and also helps to keep an eye on her little brother at times. So I thought that I would make her a card and drop it in the mail to brighten her day and to let her know how much she's loved.

Supplies: Content-to-be-a-bella, Thinking of You - Stamping Bella, Doodle Butterflies designer paper - The Paper Studio, Nesties, Flowers, Gems, Ribbon, Pop dots, Copics:E00, E21, R20, RV17, BG45, YR16, YR68, YR31, YR23, B00, Clear Spica glitter pen. Colors: Lavender Lace, Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White.
