Time to party hearty ladies & gents!! Smiley from millan.net

Today I am thrilled to be a part of the Bella's Birthday Bash Blog Hop!!


If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.


Did you make your way here from Belinda's Blog? If so, perfect!!  Make yourself right at home and hang with me for a bit while I show you the card I made to celebrate Bella's day!

BellaCouchSM 


Much like everyone else, I am a huge fan of all of the fun stamp lines StampingBella offers, but for today, I decided I had to use one of the original girls!  These funky chicks took the stamping world by a storm 3 years ago and I couldn't possibly love them more!! 


My PMSaBella's comfy couch and PJs are paper-pieced..  I used Copic Markers to color in everything else.  The sides of the couch are "double-mounted" as are her pajama bottoms since I wanted those part to look extra puffy!  I finished the shabby look to my card by airbrushing some speckles onto my card panels.  The patterned papers I used are from the Porcelain and Bittersweet Basic Grey Collections -so gorgeous and definitely girly!!.  I added some of my favorite striped Stampin' Up! ribbon and a cool vintage button from FooFaLa to finish my card up.  It really is so much fun to play with my Bellas!!

I hope you are having lot's of fun making your way through this fabulous hop! Don't forget the prizes!!


Three gift certificates for $100 in Bella Bucks will be hidden along
the hop, but we’re not telling you where, so be sure to leave some love as you
hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!!


The winners will be announced on Monday, December 7 at the Stamping Bella Blog.
 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over
to Nicole's Blog.


Mwah!!
