November Challenges at Bella Creations

Hello Friends and Welcome to my blog!
I just created a new Holiday blog background.

November is on it's way and if you have not had a chance to come 
and visit Bella is a great time!
In the forum you will find our 3 main site challenges.
Tres Chic Challenge:  This month it is free style...which means you get to chose your own style.  I chose to create this Gorgeous Christmas ornament.  I used the Gecko Galz Heritage collection and 
the Christmas morning papers.  
I used my Silhouette to create the ornament.  I used some glitters to add a little sparkle.  The edges have been inked with Ranger's vintage photo.
I used Lindy's stamp gang goodies to add a little glitz to the back.
I used the Lindy's stamp..and some gold embossing powder.

Another fun challenge is the Bella Unique:  there are a couple different flower tutorials that you can use to create a flower. Here is the flower I created below.  I added a pin to the I can wear it on a sweater this fall.
Finally we have the Bella Muse Challenge:  All you have to do is use the graphic fairy image provided in your project.
Here is my sample.  I used some glittery mists from Lindy's stamp gang.  
I used the Graphic fairy image and some Gecko Gals images to create a digi collage.  

I created more Thankful cards.  I will be handing them out to my family to fill out before the Thanksgiving meal.  We will have  a new tradition of reading the cards throughout the day on Thanksgiving.  
I will be sharing the rest of the Thankful cards I created on the
Passionately Artisitc blog.  As soon as I know when I am featured, I will post it here on my blog.

You will also want to check out the Bella Creation's Groups.  We have 16 groups which also have challenges, so stop by for a visit, I am sure you can find a challenge you might want to participate in.
