Ahhhh ....

I feel better. I finished 4 cards today and I'm really pleased with all of them. Woo and hoo. Go me! Here are two that I can show now ...

#1

Deets: Stamps: Elizabella from Stamping Bella, Small Oval from Amuse, Dotted BG from SU!; SU CS: Cool Caribbean, Rose Red, Whisper White; Patterned Paper: ??? from the Blush collection by Basic Grey; Ink: black stazon, white craft, cool Caribbean re-inker; SU! Markers: rose red, blush blossom, going grey, close to cocoa; Etc: 3/4" robin's egg organdy (got it at Paper Source, I don't know the mfr), detail white EP, stardust stickles, blue brads from colorbok, dimensionals, mini pinking shears by fiskars

#2

Deets: Stamps: Think big by SU!, pregabella by stamping bella; SU! CS: so saffron, tempting turquoise, whisper white; SU! Patterned paper: polka dots and paisley; Ink: black stazon, old olive; SU! Markers: tempting turquoise, blush blossom, so saffron, regal rose, going grey; Etc: paper piercer / mat pack, dimensionals, stardust stickles, May Arts ribbon from texasjodylynn

I actually took pictures of these instead of scanning them ... I couldn't bear to smash that organdy in my scanner bed. I'm no Stampin' Kub but I think the photos turned out pretty well, don't y'all? Anyway ... I love how the second card turned out. I loved how those cards with the "think big" and the prego gal from Mike's looked (weren't they were everywhere for a while???) so I thought I'd give it a try with my favorite rubber investment of late ... Pregabella. I'm sure I'm not the first to have this idea but yeah! anyway. Since I had my camera down here today, I took some pics of my last card (the cambria trifold frog fiasco) so hopefully that card/lame post might make more sense ...
Here's the front:

Maybe not ... oh well. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter ... later peeps!

These look super...I am sure your "big" bella will become the new rage on SCS!

I agree with Allison, your creative use of "BIG" is really catchy! Great job!
