Welcome back bug...

Back in March our favourite restaurant in Calgary suffered damage from a fire in the business next door to them and we have been waiting patiently (and impatiently) for them to re-open and today was the day! As soon as we found out we booked ourselves in tonight & I wanted to make a card to let then know how much we missed - we've been going for years and even when we were living out east it was our first stop in Calgary!

I saw this great sketch from Just us Girls (JUGS6) on Wendy's blog this weekend and knew it was the perfect layout for my card. I stamped Cheffa Huggabugg, but because it's an Italian Restaurant I masked the cake on the plate when I stamped the image so I could draw in pasta. The image is stamped on bella's bestest paper and coloured with copics. The ds paper is from Bo Bunny's Kitchen Sink line (how perfect is that?!) I paper pierced around the edges and added some ribbon and buttons. I didn't have a welcome back stamp so I just printed it off the computer and cut it out with nesties ovals. I added some glamour dust glitter to his wings and smooched it so it was subtle

Dinner was absolutely FANTASTIC; the fire happened when Karen was here in March on the morning we were suppose to go so now she can come back & visit & go to my favourite little spot!

Thanks for stopping by - this weeks bellariffic challenge is "wild card" meaning anything Stamping Bella goes! I thought this was a fantastic idea until I realized now I have to go through my overstuffed bindah(s) and pick an image with no direction; that could take awhile! Remember to email your cards to Em (emily@stampingbella.com) before midnight Thursday
