Welcome New Bella's and Polka dots with Daisy Hippo

Happy bellariffic Friday bloggers and welcome. I have a lot of great news to share with you all so lets get started. First and for most I would like you all to welcome three new awesome bella babes to the Stampingbella Team.  If you haven't already seen or heard of these ladies, you must visit there blog and see there terrific creations cause they truly are superb and I am sure they would really love a nice warm welcome. Without further a do they are...

Lets move on to our bellarrifc challenge for this week which was to create a card using Polka Dots. Ohh how I love polka dots from small to large and in any shade of color . I had recently purchased Daisy Hippo and she really needed some lovin so I chose her for this challenge. I stamped the image on bellas bestest paper with Memento black ink and colored her with my prisma pencil crayons.

The sentiment was hand written by me with a fine tip calligraphy pen cause I thought it would add a really cute point of interest. Also I added faux stitching around my image cause my sewing machine is completely out of service and I am not happy :o(

Next weekend is Scrapfest in Kitchener and I am so happy and excited to tell you that  Paula, Pauline, Linda, and Cath with her mom are going to be there. I can't wait to see the babes cause  the last time I saw them was in November and I am so looking forward to seeing them again.

Finally our bellariffic Friday Challenge for next week is monochromatic. I have never created a monochromatic card before so this will certainly be a challenge for me.  Well peeps, that's all the news I have for today, and don't forget to check out the bella blog to see  what the awesome babes and sistah's have created with the polka dot challenge. Till next time happy crafting !!!

Ebru this is simply adorable. I love the soft colors you chose and your shading rocks! I can't tell you how many images I have ruined by adding hand written sentiments, yours looks super cute and blends in like it was part of the stamp. Can't wait to see you next weekend!
