Yogabella and Ohsoprettybella

I decided to sit down and make some cards Saturday night - DH was working (I really hate night shifts!), my oldest kiddo was gone, middle kiddo was sleeping (she was worn out from a sleepover the night before) so it was just the little monkey and me. He decided he wanted to watch movies, so as I "watched" with him, I chatted with some friends online and made cards.

I hadn't used Yogabella to make a card yet - I had only used her to stamp images for friends and for an image swap on the Bella group. I had fun coloring this one - it was pretty easy! Sometimes it's nice having a not-so-detailed image, huh? Anyway, here's what I came up with:




Next, I decided to ink up Ohsoprettybella - another one I'd stamped images of for friends, but hadn't taken the time to make a card with. I actually saw this card over on Splitcoaststampers and couldn't help but CASE it. Here's my take:

I shopped in my scrap tote for the patterned papers before I colored the images - all the patterned paper I used came from that tote! I'm really loving using up my scraps lately! The cardstock all had to be cut from full sheets, with the exception of the blue on the Yogabella card... that was from my scraps too.

I made two of each of these cards - have plans for both the Yogabella ones, but the Ohsoprettybella ones will go in with the rest of my stash o' Bella cards for now. I also made 2 more cards, but I can't share it until after they've been mailed out.

Thanks for looking - hope you like the cards!
