Da Bella needs some luv!

You know I luv Mo, but my heart belongs to Bella! Can you FEEL the luv? I realized that my absolute fav holiday Stamping Bella image, Pia Puddingtop had not made it onto a card yet this year. We did one in class, but since I left those cards at Bella central I did not have one in this years stash. So I finished one. I'll be honest, this is one that I started colouring quite some time ago and did it with a mix of Lyra and Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I think I was trying to hone my pencil skills at the time because last night I wasn't really happy with it so added some deeper shading. For anyone who has ever taken a class with me, you KNOW how I love to add that deeper shading! Hold it at an arms length away, squint your eyes and if you don't see any range of color you don't have enough highlights or shading! How's that for a tip of the day!

I've got a REALLY busy couple days ahead of me and at this moment I'm so wishing I could just hunker down in my house and color! But holiday festivities are upon me and it just wouldn't be 'me' to be anti-social! Plus Alex comes home from school on Thursday and Derek early next week so you know what that means! This sistah will be spending a LOT more time in the kitchen for the next couple weeks. I miss cooking EVERYDAY for those boys of mine?...well....NO...but I do miss the gratitude 'cause they do know that ole' mom is a pretty good cook and eating residence food for the last couple months I'm expecting a lot of raves!!!!!!!!! Hmmmm, maybe I'll email them this post just as a little hint hint that mamma is expecting raves!

If you can find the time, don't forget to play along in this weeks Faux or Sew challenge. It is our last one until the new year and how cool would it be to win some Bella Bucks to spend over the holidays!
