Senior-ita Gloria and a DT Call!

Some exciting news to pass along to you.  The Paper Trail is starting a brand new challenge blog (and also having a DT call.  The first challenge begins on July 25th and has an easy-peasy challenge theme of Anything Goes so come on... this is going to be fun!  The Paper Trail also maintains a Facebook page where there's always something happening.  I always say, 'if she doesn't have it, she can get it'.  There's a huge sale going on until the 27th... 35% off plus you get free shipping on orders over $75.
This is Gloria.  Gloria is one of Stamping Bella's Senior-ita gals and I love them!  You can find her here at The Paper Trail.  These are great stamps... crisp, clean images and the sentiments are always included.  Another thing I like about the Stamping Bella images is the size.  These aren't tiny stamps... no, they aren't!  My cards are 6" x 6" so you can see they fill it up.  I didn't add it but this stamp also has a weigh scale... I guess Gloria is eating her cake but there's no calories in it so hence... no need for the scale!
I found the sketch on Stamping Bella's site but was too late to enter my card but I thought it was a great layout and I used it anyway.
I was given the Spellbinder's Floral Ovals for Christmas last year so I paired it with the Petite Ovals Large and set the image inside.  I'm not really liking this card... it seems so drab and frumpy and not at all what I intended it to be because Gloria is fun and one of those great gals with purple hair.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
