Merry Christmas Bella

Ohhhhh how I love the sound of that title!!! 

You may be wondering what's so special about that title???

Well, on December 4th, (if all goes according to plan)
I will have my very own "Bella".

It's funny how when you choose a baby name, it seems like it's not that common,
But once the name is chosen and you begin to notice all the people that actually do have the same name.  My husband and I had decided on naming our daughter
Isabella Rose, and also decided that we will most likely call her "Bella"

When Whimsy Stamps came out with their latest Little Cottage Cuties, Christmas release,imagine my surprise to see a stamp called
"Merry Christmas Bella"Designed by my favorite artist Elisabeth Bell.
OF COURSE I needed to have that stamp.
I finally have gotten to create something with this darling stamp
and I just had to share it here on my blog.

I've used my favorite coloring medium - COPIC Markers - to color this sweet little Bella and her Kitten.  They are just adorable, aren't they?

I just couldn't resist giving my card a different shape, and lots of ribbon and lace.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
Challenges I've entered are:

I'm here because I clicked on your card on the Anything Challenge blog. It's a beautiful card - I love the way the ribbon has altered the overall silhouette - but the reason for using the stamp is even lovelier!

All the best for the final month of baby cooking and Isabella's safe arrival x
