Happy Monday everyone. Did you all have a great weekend? I did some Christmas shopping on Saturday for the kids. Then on Sunday I held a class here at my house. It went very well. I always love being able to visit with adults without children running around! LAst week I promised to share with you the new Bellas that I had gotten. I had so many other projects to share with you, that the Bellas sat on the desk, uninked until this weekend. I have a Christmas card to share with you of the new Sockafellabella. This card turned out so pretty. I wish it didn't take so long to make, because I'd like to make several to send out for my Christmas cards. Don't count on it though! The background paper that I used came from out L.S.S. - Scrap Happy. It is called Figgy by Cosmo Cricket. I love it. It is gorgeous. I watercolored my main image with watercolor crayons and an aqua painter. The white parts of Bella and Fella's hats have liquid applique on them, and the white parts of the stocking are flocked. The chipboard holly leaves and berries can about by accident. i got an ink smudge on the main image and I had to cover it up some how. It adds just the right touch though. Is anyone else getting anxious to decorate for Christmas, besides me and Kim?! I start earlier and earlier every year. I can't help it though. I love Christmas!

This card is fantastic. I have not seen that Bella yet. Too cute. I just ordered some Figgy c/s too. Hope it gets here today. It is suppose to snow here today. So this card really gets me in the Christmas mood.
