Uptown Girl Claudia

Edit:  Won first place honor at Dilly Beans Designers & Friday Challenge

Hello friends and stampers!!  I hope you've had a great Tuesday.  I did something unusual today.  I finished a card just a bit ago and wanted to share it with you.  It's my first Stamping Bella Uptown Girl... Claudia Has Candy.  I just think these uptown girls are da bomb!!  I'm planning on getting a couple (well... maybe a few more than that!!) more when I have the chance.

Isn't she just fab???  And I also got to use my new (to me) Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two DP.  So fun!!  I have really enjoyed working on Ms. Claudia.  I've really been out of the creating mood for quite a few months now.  I've made a couple cards during this time, but it was such a huge chore and not the pleasure it usually brought me.  But, I felt that pleasure again with this card.  So I'm hopeful I'll be able to get back into the swing of things again.  {crossing fingers!}

Take care all and I hope to have something else new for you very soon.  So glad to have you visit.
