Bella with Friend

Hi to all and a warm welcome to my new followers.  It has been ages since I added a card and although I'd love to be able to tell you I was missing because I was making my house is spotless and alphabetizing the spices, that is not what happened.  To be honest, I'm not really sure where my time went to but I've been very busy at work and then for some unknown reason, I decided to clean out my craft room.  Clean out is not a good term... it was more like rearrange.  Cleaning out implies I got rid of things - I did not.  hahahhaa... I got a new desk so then I had to move things around.  Good grief, it took me days!  I have no idea how I manage to fit everything in this tiny room but it worked.    Anyway... on to my card.
Chelsea from The Paper Trail had sent me a fabulous package of goodies to try out and among the treasures was this sweet little Wild Rose Studio stamp called Bella with Friend.  I do love these little elephants but I'm not so sure why the butterflies look orange when in fact they are pink!
Make sure you check out The Paper Trail's blog to see what the new products are and also the Facebook page.  A heads up... if you are looking for Copic Sketch Markers, Chelsea has the best prices I've seen in Canada, which does make a difference now that our dollar has dropped in value.
