Charlie and the Frog

Happy Monday!!! I know, really...who ever says happy Monday? Me, I guess, cause there's only one more sleep til I jet off to CHA and I'm super excited!!! But don't worry, I spent the day in my stamp room yesterday and I have posts scheduled while I'm away so that you have something to look at.

I picked up this sweet Charlie image from Stamping Bella while I was there a couple of weeks ago. Isn't he just the most adorable little guy ever with that frog on his head! Totally makes me think of my nephews. The layout is Mercy's Tuesday sketch from last week, MTSC83. I have lots to tell you today, but let me start first with the card details.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured with copics. I popped it on foam tape onto a circle of brown and used patterned papers from my October Afternoon Farm Fresh 8x8 pad. The felt ribbon is old SU stuff which I thought was perfect for a masculine card. I used Glitter dots for the other circular element and I love how it kinda looks like the trail from the frog jumping onto Charlie's head. LOL!!!

Now for all the news:

1. In case you haven't heard, Stamping Bella is having a release this Wednesday, July 28th and all the new images will be posted on Bloggabella. I have a fun sample with a new image to share on Friday.

2. This week's Bellarific Friday Challenge is Christmas in July. To participate simply create a Christmas card using Stamping Bella images and email a photo of your project to Em by Thursday evening to be included in the Friday round-up on Bloggabella.

3. Tomorrow is another Tantalizing Toosday at Stamping Bella so be sure to check Bloggabella for the newest sale item!

4. This is the toughest news to share. This will be my last week as a Bella Babe and my final official post will be Friday. I really need to open up my schedule a little and spend more time on my flying lessons...I never seem to get my homework done. LOL! So as difficult as the decision was, I talked to Em while I was at Bellaland earlier this month and she was so understanding! Thank you Em!!! Oh, and this in no way means that I'm going to stop using Stamping Bella images...uh uh...I love them too much to ever stop using them!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
