Bella birthday card and news from the homefront

I want to share with you this card I made for a dear friend in Colorado. It is also for Sketch Challenge #7 on My Paper World.

Jess BDay Bella

Bling & Ribbon Bloom

Stamp: cupcakebella from stampingbella
Paper: Giggles & Grins (CTMH)
Colors (All CTMH) Cranberry, Sunny Yellow, Black
Embellishmens: Various ribbons, CTMH Sparkles and Liquid Glass, Eyelets from RAK from Annapurna.


During March I recruited 5 consultants for CTMH and was promoted from consultant to supervisor to manager. As such, I decided it would be a great idea to attend the 2008 Convention in Orlando this July. Woo hoo!!!! DH is the best for helping me figure out a way to go.

Without going into detail, as of today, I am a stay-at-home mom! I will have time to get some much needed rest, do some therapeutic crafting, and hang out with my daughter. Once again, DH has shown me how wonderful he is by completely supporting me in this transition. The breadth and depth of his love are amazing!
