This is the first Bella I have ever used. Thanks, Barb! This is one of the images my friend, Barb, sent me a while ago. After I finished coloring her, I knew I wanted to use the retired paper, Birthday Bash. I had one sheet left and the colors were perfect. In addition, I used shimmer paper from Paper Temptress. Love it! My card recipe is below. This card will be going to my Etsy store soon. Stop by and check it out!

Ramona asked about the boxes I use to store my CTMH stamp sets. Below is the AWESOME antique cabinet my DH found at a garage sale for $10. My FIL stained it and fixed the back. It houses my CTMH stamp sets. Isn't it gorgeous?
Here is the inside. I tried to get all the boxes to match, but two different Michaels didn't have enough, so I matched on the shelf. My mom gave the the box on the top shelf for single rubber stamps. Notice my alphabet tags.
Here is a close up of the boxes. I have my solos out on a table with the sets I am selling that are retired.
