Whew!!! What a week of Verve scrumptiousness!!!  I have been putting off all other challenges and stamping to enjoy my time as Verve Guest Diva...my biggest honour ever.  So this is the first challenge that I couldn't get out of my head.  It's for the latest Embellish Challenge.  I don't have many "cutsy" stamps, but I do have a small collection of Bellas :) Two of my favourites are latte Bella (of course!) and this cosmo Bella...the dh and I love our martini date nights :)  I also have this sentiment on a stamp, but it was too big for this card so I typed it out in Word, then stamped Bella beside it...love the way it turned out.  I don't colour, but I paper piece and Bella needed a bit of colour to draw your eye to her.  Hmm, I really like this...notice that martini?  It's a Hypnotic Heaven!! LOL...I love martini drink names!! LOL  Thanks for visiting and check out my blog candy!! I'm giving away all the cards I've posted this week for the Verve Spotlights PLUS a $25.00 Verve gift certificate!!!

That post title is about us, right, Diva?! LOL!
Love your take on the Embellish challenge, love the font you've used for your sentiment! One day I'll persuade you to colour but seeing as your paper piecing rocks, I'll let you off *wink*
Hugs,

Love the paper-piecing, Maureen... perfect for the Bella Stamp. Very ingenious of you to print out the sentiment that you wanted to stamp. Looks great! Just a fabulous card all the way around. By the way, I did put a link to your blog on my sidebar... just like I said I would. :) Good luck getting back into the working woman swing of things... and have fun setting up your new classroom and adjusting to your new school. I'll be thinking about you this week!
