B is for....


When I did that 3 Little Dreams embossing challenge yesterday, it occured to me that even though I didn't have my kits yet, I DID have this stamp that is part of the September kits. In hindsight I wish I had used it for the challenge, but now you get it a day later instead!

I thought teachabella matched this lined wheel from Stampin' Up! pretty well. I originally bought that wheel thinking it would come in handy for making paper to help Henry (at that time he was an only child) learn to write at some point down the road. I never really aniticipated using it on a card, but it just kind of connected with this one, so I had to ink it up. I drew in the letters by hand (as if you couldn't tell - lol!). I thought a B would be appropriate. B is for.... Bella (of course). B is for.... Back to School (not so much fun). B is for.... Becca (my favorite first grader (!!) and the intended recipient of this card). See, it just jived every which way!

How do you like the floor? Almost every school I went to had these yellowish hard wood floors, so I had to try to draw one in for Ms. Bella! And those buttons... yeah. They have adhesive on the back. Reeeeally sticky adhesive. I'm not totally happy with the placement, but there was no moving those bad boys! Oh well, it's still cute, right?!

A couple points of business:

First, I listed some uber-old Stampin' Up! sets (and a few newer ones) for sale or trade on Splitcoast. Click >HERE< to see the goods.

And second, I was reading through one of the threads I frequent on SCS, and learned that Gina (aka ginapier) has a blog. I had no idea. Don't know her? Well, she's the lovely lady responsible for organizing and maintaining the RAK list for SCS... A huge job by anyone's standards. Take a look at her blog and show her some love! She's got some cute ideas, and stamps I've never even heard of (much less seen) on her cards (as well as MFT, Thomas Kinkade, etc.). And, as if that's not enough, she turned Kinibella into a Playboy Bunny. LOL. I love it!

Stamps: Teachabella (Stamping Bella), Wheel (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Basic black, Adirondak Pitch Black
Paper: Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black
