Betcha thought I was done with Christmas Cards!

NOT!....I slipped in a little something different for yesterday's hop but I'm back at Christmas cards again. Wasn't that the best hop EVAH! Did you play? And if you didn't play, did you remember to leave comments everywhere? There are lotsa bella bucks to be won and there is still time!

Hubby and I were shopping in Michigan yesterday and I was AGAIN so happy for the iPhone so I could hop along when I had time. Man...don't want to see that data roaming bill! We were supposed to be Christmas shopping but instead I bought myself two giant Latte mugs from Pottery Barn and a funky piece of wall art for the bathroom at Crate and Barrel. I also wanted to get the apothocary jars from Restoration Hardware but was fearing that if I bought any more they would for sure charge me duty at the border and I did not to risk it. Oh well, another reason to shop again! It is sooooo fun to browse those stores cause the best thing we have to that in Chatham is, let's see...Walmart! Just not the same! Then we stuffed ourselves silly at PF Changs and called it a day! ...'twas a long day, but fun!

This is a sneak peek of one of Stamping Bella's new releases that will be revealed tomorrow! I've seen a few, but not all of them and CANNOT wait. This is Falalalala Bella and she is soooo festive. I even stuck with the traditional red and green because I couldn't imagine her in any other color. She was done up in copics and I did shade her with some french grey prisma pencil, although it is not too visible in the picture....those darn pictures just don't always capture the moment do they! Some flock on her fur and opaque gold glitter created the tinsel. And what do ya think of that big fat bow! WOWZER! I picked up the ribbon at a new store I hit yesterday called My Craft Room. A tiny gem of a store with something for everyone...beaders, knitters, stampers, scrapbookers! It was just too bad there wasn't something nearby to occupy the hubs while I soaked it all in.

Copics used in this card are:
G40, 12, 82, 94, 85, 99
E000, 00, 11, 42, 44, 15, 18
W00, 0, 1
YR31, Y0000, YR0000
R22, 24, 27, 37, 59 to do more colouring! Maybe another new release! You never know!
