Gobblin' Good Bella Bash Challenge Cards

I was a little bummed out that I missed the bash Wednesday. I didn't get home until almost 9pm from an enrichment meeting and then spent the next 40 or so minutes getting my girls off and ready for bed. So by the time I got into the Bella forums it was about 10pm mountain time :S Oh well, at least I still get to play in the challenges!! Don't forget that my Blog Candy Challenge is still going. You have until Midnight Tuesday to play :D Here's Laurel's Card, so fun and frosty! So far I've added some Christmas colored safety pins, Green and Red spirals, and a baggie of pastel Primas. Off to go add something more for Laurel's card!

The first challenge was to make a card using the bella you are most thankful for and say why. Well, truthfully I couldn't pick which I was most thankful for, so I picked which stamp in my last order was the one I was most thankful to be able to get. The little daisy bitty bloom was image I was most thankful to get, mostly because I just love daisies, lol. Truthfully I was just really thankful to get my last order because I don't have funds to really be buying stamps right now but had gotten some gift certificates for playing before and winning the random drawings. With the free shipping and the new bitty bloom release, it was the perfect time to use up those gift certifs :D Inspiration for the colors comes from the red daisies in front of Cait's school.

The second challenge was to make a card for someone you are very thankful for (other than your spouse or signicant other), pick embellies to use that you are thankful for, and to say who the card is for and why. This card is for Mich my fav SIL ^_~ She is just all around an awesome SIL and Aunt. I even drew glasses on Superbella since Mich just doesn't feel like herself without her glasses. It was a challenge but I think they turned out pretty cute! Brads are the embellie I am really most thankful for. I use them on everything, pages... cards... gifts... they are the one embellie that I really cannot live without!

Anyway, so there are my cards for the two challenges. I am still working on the Papertrey template. I was trying to figure out how to use the Adobe Suite programs we have to make it but I think I'm just giving up on that since it's taking me too long to try and figure out how to even use them and I still haven't figured it out, lol. Edit photos, I can do that, but creating something from scratch seems to be the impossible task for me right now. So I'm just going to make an easy one from paint, lol. It doesn't look as neat but at least I know how to use it ^_~ Anyway, I hope you all have a great Saturday!

Love these cards Marjorie. That daisy bitty bloom is just so cute. I can see why she is your favorite. And I love the sentiment that you used. Too perfect.

Quick question for you. Living in Utah, do you bleed blue or red?
