Uptown Girls!

Hello hello!!! I hope you're all OK and coping well with Christmas preparations. I'm having family over to our's again this year but am not flapping too much as Mr Marks and Mr Spencer are helping me out quite a bit! LOL!!! And considering the awful Christmas we had last year because of Mum, it kinda puts things into perspective so I'm fairly chilled!!

Anyway, I guess we're all making our final cards now. I've still got hubbie's to make but I've coloured the image so should finish that in a couple of days. I have to say, though, the card I'm going to show today has had me SO excited!! Just because I LOVE LOVE LOVE these new range of stamps from Stamping Bella and they colour just SO beautifully!!!!!!! This is the first one I've made from the Uptown Girls range.....

what dya think?!!! I know this isn't really a Christmasy image but I thought it really was if coloured the right way as I thought it cried out holiday parties with glam dresses!! So I coloured with copics and paper pieced their dresses to which I added lots of glitter to the trim. I hope you can see as well that one of them has glitter gold sandals (courtesy of Stickles) and the other has patent black sandals (courtesy of black Sakura gel pen). These gorgeous papers are some of my fav colours by MME Happy Heart. Sentiment is Papertrey Ink. Holly is PTI die.

I think they are such adorable stamps, I'm totally in love with them so watch this space for more!! I also added glitter to their yummy looking cocktails!

Yup, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this line of stamps at Stamping Bella. I've seen these girls colored so many different ways and they ALWAYS look festive and fun! Yours is no exception with the glamed up shoes and paper pieced dresses. Great job! Hope you enjoy the holidays especially with hosting the big day!
