SpiceyCatChick Bella

The Bella challenge on Splitcoaststampers couldn’t have been more perfect (even though I’m late posting my creation). We were to choose a Bella stamp from our stash that best represented us and then make a card. What could be better than a kitty card? I creatively stamped and cut out all seven of my babies. It was so fun to make a card just for me! I think it will be displayed in my studio so I can see it when I’m working. I don’t plan on letting the kitties have free reign in the studio, so this can be a reminder of my babies while I lock myself away for hours upon end. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
Color Inspiration ~ The Pink Elephant #18 Pink, Brown and White (I add to add a few colors to match my babies) Inspiration Bella's Show and Tell Challenge #1 ~ Bella stamp that most defines you and then explain why ABC Challenge ~ i was for individual (see your own individual style) & p was for pink
My Card
Image Detail Everyone is accounted for (except for dear hubby). Zoë is wrapped around my neck, Dolly in my arms, and my feet are surrounded by (from left to right) Ozzy, Otis, Lobo, Rico and Lily)
Kitty Close Up
When I was coloring the babies I frequently had to get up and sneek a peek at the real thing to see if I had their markings somewhat correct.
I sat giggling the whole time I made the card and kept telling my hubby he was going to LOVE it. When I showed it to him, he broke into a big grin and proceeded to identify all the furry babies correctly. Then he pointed to 'me' in the card and asked who she was! I explained that was me in my dreams since I look NOTHING like the beautiful Bella. LOL.
