Lots of EXCITING Bella news today!!!!

First and MOST importantly, the babes are looking for an addition to our happy team...you DO know we are the BESTEST team out there!!! and did you know that Emily is the bestest bosslady EVAH? Do you want to be part of it? Well here is your chance.

The Babe's are looking high and low for a new friend to join the rank of Bella Babe-ness. If you think you are Babe worthy and want to strut your talent every week...then here's what ya gotta do!

Submit your bestest cards (email to Emily) and play along with our challenges for all 4 weeks in August. Since a Babe requirement is submitting for BellaRIFFIC friday's, you'll be getting your feet wet and showing of your creativity.

Next up is Tantalizing TOOSDAY'S. For you online shoppers, Emily will have a special Tuesday sale that will run until the following Monday. Better be quick though, because once they are gone, they ARE GONE! Check her blog every Tuesday for the new sale of the week.

Now since I am already a babe, (LOL!), the MOST exciting news I have to share is a little peek at one of the stamps from the new release which will be available today. Meet Bossy!



Gotta luv her...personally, I am not a bossy sort (i don't think so anyways), I prefer to follow orders rather than give them. But I came up with what I think is the PERFECT saying to go along with this image. "I told you" was cut out with a sizzix alphabet die and inside I'm gonna write..."those birthdays just keep coming year after year"...LOL! When you get to be my age, all cheezy birthday cards about our age always bring giggles.

For you inquiring minds, the image was stamped on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with the following copic markers. As always I added some extra shading with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E30, 31, 33, 35, C00, 1, 3
T1, W0, 1, G0000, 000, 00
YG41, 45, BG72
Y0000, 000, 00, 11, 21, 32, 28

The blue shading was done with deco blue and true blue prismacolor pencils.

That's it for today folks....happy shopping!
