Tackybella!!!


Okay.....I'm okay now. I worked all day yesterday and didn't have TOO many silly patrons...thank goodness. After work I decided to brave the stores alone and got a little bit of Christmas shopping done. I took advantage of the fact that Al wasn't there and bought ALL of his presents!! So he's done. He called me last night from Calgary and told me all about his visit with his uncle George. His uncle is dying of cancer and doesn't have more than 6 months left, so Al made the two hour trip yesterday to spend the day with him. It's been about 30 years since they have seen each other, but he was so happy to have Al there. They went out for coffee and hung out with some of George's friends from the residence. They spent the day chatting and catching up and one of the waitresses took some pictures of them together for them. Sounds like they had a nice time together.

Last night after I got home, I decided to take a time out from my papercraft orders and just stamp for fun. There was a Bella Ball over at SCS the other night and they posted a bunch of cool challenges, so I decided to do one of them. The challenge was to create a Bella that had over the top embellishments and bling! I figured I could handle THAT!! So I stamped Elizabella and paperpieced her dress using this great black, white and pink dp by Doodlebug Designs. I used my skinny oval stamp by Amuse to make her somewhere to stand and used lots of yummy ribbon and silver cord. I had this package of tons of tiny rhinestones from the dollar store and it took me for-EVER to glue all of them down, but I think it looks awesome and makes her look like she is up in the marquee of Broadway......Bella up in lights!!! So I pop dotted her, added Stardust Stickles to both of her bags and then added some awesome velvet flowers. The sentiment I stamped inside the round frame by Verve Visual and then added MORE rhinestones in each of the scallops on the SU punch! I think she's rather gaudy and tacky, don't you????

Why don't you take some time out of your busy holiday schedule and stamp something just for fun!!!??
