Also, thank you for your wonderful comments. I am sure I will be fine, but it is great to have people wish you well. The website for the Elyzbells. for those of you who have been asking is: www.elzybells.co.uk/ but remember that this is a UK company, so shipping may take longer and the prices are in Pounds, not Dollars (I live in the US but these look so much nicer and larger so I just had to order from the UK). Elizabeth was the lady who helped me and she was such a sweet heart! I will definatly order again, but not until a new line comes out that I just have to have!
Day 7 winner is....Roxi! Come on down!
I really like the color combo - I look at that stamp, and have by passed her so far, but maybe in the future I will give her a try. Roxie
Roxie please e-mail me your snail mail address so Billboardabella can come your way!

The first challenge was to create a tri-fold card, which I haven't done in a while, but I had a blast! I pulled out my Copics (which I used all night!) and started coloring away. This decorative paper I made about a month ago when I first received my PaperTrey stamps, so I thought I would give it another go, and I think it really works with this Huggybella image.
Next came the first of several sketch challenges, this one was fun to make. A little different...I couldn't decide what color to make her hair so I just didn't color it in....take that. LOLAnother sketch challenge where I decided to go for the purple look. To be honest I don't seem to use the colors purple very often, so it was a bit of a challenge to come up with something, but I think it worked out for the best. I really like my Daintybella, she was the first bella I received which came to my door step from PaperPretties, that was the beginning of the end....now I have at least 45 Bellas.....The next one turned out pretty conservative, considering the challenge was to go wild. I used my glitter copic markers which I ado even more than my Copic themselves! I have had this flower sitting on my desk ready to be used for a few weeks, and I thought it would be the perfect touch that this card needed.About a month ago the wonderful KelliJo sent this cute "non-bella" Bella stamp my way, it was in my cart waiting to be bought, but she thought hers needed a new home. So Christini has come to stay! Last night was the first time I inked it up, and although I have mixed feeling about the final card, I think it was a lot of fun to colors in and explore.
The last card and last challenge...Gina hosted a sketch challenge to end the night and I loved her sketch. It seems that through most of the night I was using diagonals, so what better way to end then with a sketch that comes with it own diagonals! Gina's example was stunning, I wasn't sure if I could come close to living up to her standards, but I think this card speaks for itself. It is fun and I just love it, the colors turned out great together and the sentiment just topped it off. Thank you creating such a wonderful challenge Gina!
I hope you all had as much fun as I did last night, the Bella Ball was a success!

To be honest, I have only made one or two ATCs ever, so getting to make these cute mini cards has been a blast, in fact I am thinking about trying to make more cards from an ATC into a full card. It seems to give the overall card more definition, which I love!For the image I used my brand new Copic Glitter markers that arrived last night from Ellen's store. She had a sale this past weekend, so I had to get a few things. I broke down and bought the full glitter set and five other Copic markers. In fact, one of the colors I used on this card, the entire image is colored in using the glitter markers except the large flowers which were colored in by Frost Blue (B00) from Copic Sketch. You may not be able to see the glitter, but it is wonderful! The shine on the image is great, I can't wait to play with these a bit more.
