{Bigger is Better-and this post is BIG}

Now that I have your attention...I wanted to share a card with you that I made this weekend. I received a shipment of Bellas and Presentahbella is one of my newest additions to my every growing Bella collection.

I'm a member of bellaholicsanonymous, a Yahoo! group for other ladies, like myself, that love making Bella cards. Recently they conducted a contest to select a "Bella Babe of the Month", and guess what? I submitted a card and actually won! So, for the month of October, other bellaholics have been RAK-ing me with Bella cards, images, and one Bella Sistah even sent me a Winobella stamp! I'm a humble person...really. While everyone likes to be recognized and validated, it is always a little embarrassing for me to "toot my own horn" as they say. However, I wanted to share some of these amazing cards with you and in doing so, thought I should provide a little background as to why I had received them.

This was one of the first Bella Babe RAKs that I received and it was so adorable and so well done that I will have to CASE the design for sure. It was sent to me by Terri who used acetate to create the base of this card. Additionally she used red Fun Flock on the Pom-Poms. How cute is that!

This is a RAK that I received from JoAnn Williams and her card was what pushed me over the edge to buy my own! I loved her color choices and the circle cuttlebug background that went perfectly with the circles in the stamp. The great thing about this stamp is how versatile it is. As you can see, JoAnn used this stamp in a Christmas card, and I used mine as a birthday greeting.

The next RAK was sent to me by Shannon Roberts. She used another one of my favorite bellas, Winobella. Shannon's color choices are fabulous along with her cuttlebug background, the scalloped bottom and the adorable wine ribbon. It all works so wonderfully together.

Michelle Gaul sent me this super-sweet Tinkerbella with wonderful patterned paper and lots of glitter and shine to her image. I love how she incorporated her sentiment as the flower center.

Katie Skiff RAK's me with this cute and funny Beachabella card. To see the sentiment, click on the picture. I love these fresh summer colors and Katie's fun sense of humor with this bella!
I have more Bella Babe RAKs that I will show you in the days ahead, but I want to get this posted, so I'll stop for now. Thanks for popping in today, and for all of your wonderful comments. I appreciate you stopping by and for coming back!
