Bella's Favorite Stamper Yogabella Card and Some Sad News

This month, we chose Lori (Pinky66 on SCS) to be Bella's Favorite Stamper! Here's the card I chose to case from her. Show Lori LOTS of sistah love by CASEing a Bella card from her gallery - changing up at least two things. Please put a link to the CASE'd card in the description of your upload. Use the keyword BFS4 when uploading your artwork to SCS.

Paper: CTMH, Basic Grey Cupcake
Stamps: Stamping Bella, Sentiment is MFT
Prima Flowers, Bella Baubles, Crystal Stickles, Copic Markers, CTMH Brads, MS Border Punch, and Nestabilities

If you participate in a Bella Forum Challenge, you will be eligible for a drawing at the end of the month for a $20 store credit to Stamping Bella! That's right!!!!!!!!!!! The more times you play, the more chances you'll have to win!

So, we've been negotiating with the bank and it doesn't look like the house is going to work out for us. Our second favorite (it was hard for us to choose between these 2) is an older house, but completely re-modeled inside. It has all brand new appliances in it too. Plus, it has bigger front and backyards than the brand new house. And our house isn't right up against our neighbors.

This is only a 1 story house with 3 bedrooms. It's really more suited for us space wise I think. It's in Covington, which is the next city over from Maple Valley, so still kindof in the same area. We'll probably be putting our offer on it soon! Keep your fingers crossed a little bit longer for me!

Everyone have a great Saturday!


  1. Congratulations to Lori on being chosen as Bella Featured Stamper -- she definitely deserves it! And best of luck on your new home; it sounds perfect!!

  2. Adorable card! and it's still a cute house!Good luck!

  3. Sparkle, this house is gorgeous! Don't get discouraged girl, God has a plan for you and it will all work out the way it was meant to be! Love ya, Laura

  4. The card is gorgeous!

    With ya on the house stuff, girl!!

  5. Great card today, love the stickles!

    Good luck with the 2nd house. The great thing about older homes is they do tend to have larger lots, which is so hard to find with new developments. How wonderful that it's all newly remodled inside. I'm crossing my fingers for you!

    Happy Saturday!

  6. Super cute card!
    Sorry about the first house. It's so frustrating, I remember! But there is a reason for it all, and you'll find the house that is perfect for you guys! Big hugs!

  7. ooh, I like that house, too! good luck with your next offer :)

  8. This house is beautiful. There is something nice to be said about older homes. Namely the neighborhood. It's nice to move into an established neighborhood, because you have more mature landscaping and you can see what kind of neighbors you are in for. Don't feel discouraged. I know that banks are tough now, so it's not you, just the economy. Everything works out for a reason. So, hang in there and think good thoughts. Especially....that new scrapbook room :)

  9. Heya Sparkle!

    Good luck on the house! I wouldn't worry about a house being "too big" for just two ppl :) Our home is a 1 level rambler witha fully finished basement, 4 bedroom, 3 bath with a fam room and office.... It comes in handy when company comes and someday when kids come we have a place for them without having to move! (Unless we get quads or something... lol!)

    I hear you on the reader decrease... it happened to mine when we had the sewer back up... it's really saddening to get those emails.... :( Chin up! You're still having fun on your blog, right?

    Inky Smiles!


  11. Pretty house! Hope it works out for you both... "There's no place like home"... LOL

  12. I'm so sorry about the house. It's amazing how quickly you get emotionally attached to one. I hope things go better with the next one (I like it better, not that it matters ;)
    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Your card is lovely! Yogabella has always been one of my favs :D Good luck on this house!! I hope you get it!
