A long, long time ago...

I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile.

Remember that Don McLean song, American Pie...oh my it is a classic and one of those songs that just makes EVERYONE sing along....well, my generation anyway! hmmmm....I think I may have to just hop on over to iTunes and get that one for my iPhone.

What does this have to do with a card? Well, a long, long time ago I took a class with Paulabella and this was one of the images we coloured. Lilly bittybloom is one of my ALL TIME fav Stamping Bella images and YES, I coloured it ENTIRELY in pencil. I told Paula I was gonna blog it and she growled at me so I'm hoping the statute of limitations has run out by now because I stumbled upon it the other day and thought it was just too pretty to leave in a drawer.


I paired her up with some Basic Grey Wisteria paper, a pretty little bow and lots of stitching....and I KNEW I was planning on putting a bow in the upper left corner, so why I started and ended the stitching on the opposite side I'll NEVER know! Well, I do know, I was doing this really late in the evening and I was probably tired. I do everything better in the mornings!

Now don't forget, no challenge this week but ALL the new CHA releases will be LIVE at Stamping Bella dot com on Tuesday and while you are waiting for your new rubber to arrive you can get busy on our challenge for Feb 4th....can you guess....VALENTINE'S DAY! Make something cute for the love of your life and get it to Emily by Thursday Feb 3rd.
