A Little Wreathabella

My sweet lil' wreathabella has been begging for ink. I finally had a chance to play for a few minutes today.

Wreathabella is part of the November Bella Box through Paper Pretties. She had a minor delay on the way--she must have been visiting Santa Clause--but she finally arrived at my house last week.
I am sure many of you can appreciate (ok maybe not) those LONG border waits for stuff like the DP, ribbon and the embellies...thank goodness those Bellas are Canadian eh? Those border wait are especially long since the Canadian dollar gained momentum. Now it seems all us Canucks are purchasing everything from the US and our goods are taking twice as long to get to us. Most of my US purchases used to arrive within 10 days. Now I am waiting upwards of 3 weeks. It's hard to be patient but I am glad I was because I am loving the November Bella Subscription Box! Oh and did I tell you I am loving the December one too? *lol*

My wreathabella card was inspired by the hip-hip-horray collection from paper salon.


paper: Hip-hip-horray collection DP (Paper salon)
ink: Brillance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
stamp set(s): wreathbella and happy holidays (Stamping Bella or Paper Pretties November Subscription Box)
accessories: Copic Markers

If you haven't had the change to visit Lisa Strahl's blog for sneak peaks, I suggest you do so you can be one of the first to see the 30 projects she is sharing using the newest CHF backgrounders. They will be available for purchase on Lisa's birthday December 1. I can tell you the very FIRST one on my list is the grid paper backgrounder. That is soooooo up my alley or should I say "Alli" these days.

Have a terrific day.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
