Its been a long week,but...

I am back at it full swing! I have been working a lot of hours this week filling in for a girl at work. Dave was on second shift all week so I was on my own. It was rough, but I had some help. My Mom. Thank you Mom, i could not have done all the practices and games and get them home from school without you. Love you Mom!

So last night I got to chill, with Amy. We made bella cards and worked on the calendar swaps. I am not sharing any more of mine because the other 2 will be a surprise.

Bella Sketch Challenge 22 This first card was done with flowahbella. You know I can't wait to get a few more, seems I am always doing the same ones. lol The paper is from the paper studio, Bella is colored with copic markers, and the rub ons are from CTMH.

Bella Sketch Challenge 32
I like this Bella, she is rockabella I believe. The paper is again from the paper studio. brads are from CTMH. I colored with copics and used stickles on her guitar to make it pop.

This last one my Daughter, Taylor did. It is DaiseyBella, One of my favorites, as the daisy is one of my favorite flowers. Gerber daisies to be exact. The paper is all CTMH,and I even let her use my copics on this one. She thought that was pretty cool.

Well I hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend. We are going to Daves grandparents 60th anniversary party tomorrow, then Monday we are taking it easy, then it is back to the grind. thanks for stopping by, and it is my goal this week to post at least 4 times. so 1 down three more to go.

Credit where credit is due

Hi all, I forgot to give credit to the cards I posted. They are both from the Bella Sketch challenge on SCS.

Bella cards and a spoiler for my swap

I LOVE this stamp, sweetiebella. My friend Amy let me stamp this one to use. We kinda have shared custody of our Bella stamps. lol

This card is done with unknown papers. I do not even remember where I bought them. sorry. The image is colored with copic markers, the flower is CTMH white colored with copics, and the Brad is CTMH also. As always I leave the sentiment blank until I find a use for the card.

This card features PMSabella. colored with copic markers. The papers are all CTMH, as is the flower and brad. the flower is colored with copics. I love those bitty brads in the lower left corner, aren't they so cute?!?

This is one of my enteries for the bella swap calendar, form the bellaholics group. It is Emmybella, she is paper pieced, with papers from the paper studio. I love this line of papers, the colors and patterns are sooo cute. Hope i did not spoil this swap for anyone. lol

well I guess that is all for now. i need to make sure my kids are in bed and ready to snooze. Thanks for looking everyone!!

Not MIA just been busy

Hello, I did not think I had any loyal followers, but apparently I do! lol I guess I had better get on the ball and update this blog and keep it updated.

School started last week. boohoo. I hate to see the kids go back to school, it means another year older and another year closer to me losing them. I actually cried yesterday after I dropped them off, and went home and was all alone. I really enjoy my kids and wish I could keep them young forever. I am not alone in feeling this way am I?

I have been pretty busy with my scrapbook group and getting the kids ready for school. Soccer started back up too, so there is not a lot of time to "play" lately. I will post a few Bellas i have been working on in a bit.

OK I got in trouble by my mom because I have not blogged since Thursday. I figured I had better catch up before I get into more trouble. (Love you Mom!) Well there really is not much to tell. Taylor is doing really well after having all those teeth pulled, she is ready to get back to normal, but still is on a soft diet and is ready to move on. She received $30.00 from the tooth fairy. She spent the last of it tonight to get a Barbie. I am afraid she takes after me with the saving abilities!

Saturday night we went to an Omaha Royals baseball game. They had fireworks after the game, the kids really enjoyed them. So did Dave and I, it was really a fun night.
This brings me to today, It was a HOT day here in Iowa, we spent most of the day in the pool. We even got daddy to come swim with us. We all had fun together.

Well thanks for reading this far. Now on to my Bella's...

This first one is a Spabella, I do not remember who the paper is by, the flower is CTMH and so is the brad. I was able to buy myself a 12 pack of Copic markers, and have been playing with the shading. I don't feel I have it down yet, but, will take some hints or criticism please.
Next is another Emmybella, she is my favorite so far of the ones I have. all the paper is CTMH and Emmy is all paper pieced. The flower I am not sure of. I really like how this turned out, Love the colors on it! by the way this is BSC #10

last but not least is tinkerbella. I love tinkerbella, and I love my new markers!! This card seems a little plain to me, but I like to wait to put my sentiment on till I know what they are being used for. this one is from bsc #17.
That is all I have for now. I will try to post more often so you don't have to read so much at once!
thanks for coming by!
