Latte Bella

There are three great sketches over at the Midnight Madness Challenge to carry us through the holidays. I have several Bellas who have been neglected. I thought I would get ahead of things by stamping several images and even colored a few. they are gathering dust! LOL. I'm proud to finally get one of my girls to land on a card. :o)

Photo Inspiration ~ Crafty Creations Challenge #98
I LOVE photo challenges. Often I'll use the color for inspiration, but in this one I felt the girly vibe, added my version of a 'ruffley' ribbon, and picked up on the polka dots in the linens that are reflected in my DP.

I just finished reading The Espressologist by Kritina Springer It’s a debut release, so I’m stretching things a bit by choosing a favorite writer; however, I’m an avid reader and try not to play favorites so whatever I just finished or am currently page turning is my fav! This is a great quick read about a girl who works at a coffee shop and matches people’s personalities to their choice in drinks.
