Bella with Mum - The Stamp Basket DT

It's my regular day for posting on The Stamp Basket blog, and for today's card I've used one of the cute Bella stamps from Wild Rose Studio.  I think she's so sweet and perfect for young children's birthdays :o)




Items available from The Stamp Basket



I made this one following last week's sketch from Sketch Saturday but obviously I'm a bit late to enter there!  Bella is coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up - it actually comes with the 'cheer & wishes' underneath the 'birthday', but I've inked each bit up separately and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get it positioned properly.  The scalloped border was cut with an MFT die, butterfly cut with a kars punch, and everything else is from The Stamp Basket.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Dex gave me (and himself) a bit of a scare today - he fell down the stairs.  I didn't see him do it, just heard him bumping all the way down, and it was almost a relief when he started screaming - at least I knew he was still conscious!  Luckily he doesn't seem to have done any serious harm, although he's going to have a bruised bottom and his legs are a bit sore!  I've got a horrible earache today, so I'm going to grab some painkillers now... will be round to catch up with you all later :o)
