CHICHIBOULIE BLOG HOP!

Welcome to the Stamping Bella Chichi hop! We're all here to celebrate the fun little Chichiboulie stamps and hop around to see what other sistah's have been creating! If you didn't start from the beginning, start at Emily's blog and hop through the complete line up!
I have always loved Maisy Sunshine the most out of my chichi's, I know, how can I have a favorite! She's just so cute!
I colored Maisy and the flower with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I *attempted* Paulabella's grass tutorial, EPIC FAIL, lol! It's nowhere near as good as hers, I'll have to keep practicing! I also love how the Bella Babe's shade around their images, again, FAIL but I'll keep working at it:)
The card base is Dark Chocolate and the paper is from the Autumn Abundance pack, all by PTI. The sentiment stamps are Verve, from Worlds Greatest.

Well, in addition to some fun eye candy along the way, there is some BLOG CANDY hidden! Even we the bloggers don't know who has it so make sure you comment on all the lovely blogs:) The winner will get $25 gift code for the Stamping Bella store! The winner will be announced in the Bella forums on Splitcoast!

Hope you like what you're seeing so far, head on over to SARA'S BLOG to continue the hop!
Enjoy your weekend!
