A Few Bellas

This one just makes me laugh! I have a friend (actually, she's my DD's friend and co-worker, but I think of her as my friend, too) who lives here in MA. Last spring, while it was still snowing, she wore flip-flops to work and announced that she was no longer participating in winter. It just cracked me up! She recently celebrated her birthday, a day when we got 8" of snow. So I just had to make this card for the girl who doesn't like to participate in winter even when it snows on her birthday! Kinibella is standing on snow instead of sand! LOL
Stamp: Kinibella by Stamping Bella
Paper: DCWV Winter Matstack, misc. brown
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Copic Spicas
Accessories: SU Felt Flurries, Bella's Dots in Glitter Gold, Bella's Favorite Ribbon in Cotton Candy, Stickles in Cotton Candy, Liquid Applique, Embossing Gun, CTMH Paper Piercer, Nestabilities

This is for BCC61 on SCS~a monochromatic card. I made this birthday card for my niece. I thought it was the perfect accompaniment for the Arbonne cosmetics that I gave her. I didn't realize that the photo was out of focus until after I mailed the card, so this is the best view I have.

Love the story about your friend who refuses to participate in winter, lol! Whenever the weather got icky, one of my good high school buddies would stare up at the sky and holler, "God, I have a problem with this! Can we get some sunshine please?"
