Valentine's Day - Bella Style!

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day!! And welcome to the LOVE ME DO Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

I *really* wanted to ink up this sweet Bluebell Bittybloom, and I figured if I colored her in pinks and added some hearts to her skirt she would make a wonderful Valentine's card for my Mom. :-) I stamped my Bittybloom on Very Vanilla cs and colored her with prismacolors and OMS. Well - mostly, at least! Her skin is done with copics, her cummerbund is paper pieced and the decorations on her hat and skirt are drawn in with a Regal Rose marker. :-)

I had so much fun making this card! I used new stamps, but I pulled out flowers and buttons and ribbon and dp that had just been sitting in my stash. It was like getting together with old friends!

Here is the whole card...
So...how about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $25 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Friday in the Splitcoast forum. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to
Lori's blog!!

Blessings!

Tricia
