Bella and her Fella

Wanna see what Todd and I look like when we are Christmas shopping? Yep, that is us! LOL! Nah...I am not even close to being that thin although Todd is almost there...he's lost a ton of weight recently and he looks great!

I made this card for a swap that I joined on Bellaholics Anonymous. We are supposed to take a Bella or Bellafella stamp that isn't specifically for Christmas and turn it into a Christmas card. (Wow! Long explanation on that! LOL!) I love this Retailfellabella stamp so I decided I must use this one. All of the cards that I made have different little saying squares at the bottom left of the card. I used my Copic markers to color these guys in and then with this one I used the colorless blending marker on Bella's jeans. Unfortunately, it bled the black ink a little so I didn't want to chance it on the other cards and didn't try to blend the pants on those. I just, last night, ordered a different colorless blender that looks to have a smaller tip so hopefully it will be easier to use in small spaces such as these. Isn't this just cute? Simple but still a great least I think so!

I think I'll try my other Thomas Kinkade stamp today and see what I can do with it. I hope everyone gets lots of stamping time in today!!!
