Sad and Glad!

I am SO sad the Packers lost last night in the NFC Championship game. They so totally should have won but alas...it didn't happen. Cry

On the glad side...I made a Bella card for the birthday swap that I'm in. I'm not sure I'm totally in love with this and may make a couple of changes but I like the overall card and the layout. I used Cakeabella along with a happy birthday sentiment from Bella. The designer paper is the new Berry Bliss from SU! and it is just to die for! The colors are Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa but for some reason my PP Copic isn't even close to the color of the paper. I'm going to have to check the numbers again. What I do like is how the ribbon is under the sentiment this time. I think that is different. I so love that PP satin ribbon and truly wish SU! would have kept it current especially with paper like this! Anyway, I think she is a good start towards the card I will send.

For now I have to put Bella away though and concentrate on making some great stuff for my Sweet Treats stamp camp this weekend. I have the bonus project all set to go but I'm lacking on oh, I don't know...everything else. I'm sure it will all come together just fine though.

Did you notice my hit counter? Only 78 more hits til 50,000. How about a little blog candy? The person who posts a comment with the hit counter number closest to 50,000 will get the first bit of blog candy I'm going to give away this week. They will receive a Small Script stamp set...brand new, unmounted! Even if you already have this set I'm sure you know someone who doesn't and you could gift it to them. I'll be giving away more blog candy each day through Friday!
