Peony Bittybloom


Hi everyone! I really should be working on cards for my mom and get a head start on those BUT I've had these little Stamping Bella bittyblooms sitting on my desk for a while now that haven't gotten any love yet and I just felt the need to colour one up. It always seems that when I am in a stamping slump colouring one of Emily's stamps always gets me back in the mood. I adore these little girls. I would have to say that Stellas and Chichis are my fav of the Bella line of stamps.

This one in particular looks like she is wearing an organza dress so naturally I had to add the sheer ribbon to compliment it. I used mini glue dots to hold the ribbon waves in place and added a tiny pearl on her belt. I coloured her up with my copics, but used Pencils for the grass.

Today is my last official vacation day before heading back to the day job on Monday. I am so enjoying my time at home, the thought of retirement looms heavy on my mind but with two boys still at home and heading to University in the fall I have a few working years left in me. So I'm going to spend the day in my new flannel lounge pants that my SIL got me for xmas and just putter around, clean up the house a bit, organizing my dresser drawers and cook something good for supper.

You get that airy feeling when you look at this card. The card is just beautiful. The ribbon gives it a softness too. Have a great weekend.
