I'm so glad i got to play today!! I got my new CardMaker Magazine and there was a card similar to this one in it. It had a man (framed in) in a chair and all you could see was his legs and the tv remote. LOL I knew when i seen it i could use "PMSBella" (no problem) I love how it turned out! :)

Hi Kari- I use the Sketch ones, which are more expensive. Had I known better when I bought my first ones, I would of gotten the Ciao ones. The Ciao ones don't come in as many colors as the Sketch ones does, but people say theres really no difference.

When I was in Denver, I'd go to Hobby Lobby and buy them when they were 30%, which made the Sketch ones about $3.99 a piece before tax.

But I found this website that sells them for $4.46 a piece and free shipping for orders over $70. The store is in Oregon, so theres no sales tax. The $4.46 was about even for what I would pay at HL after tax in Denver.

If you want to go the Ciao route, Electric Paperie sells them individually for $2.99 a piece.

And Hanna Stamps started selling sets of 12 for $39.99.

With tax and shipping, you could see which would end up being a better deal for ya.

I didn't buy a kit because I thought it would be fun to pick my own colors, but if I had to do it over again, I would of gotten a set because I think my colors would of gone better together.

Kari this is sooo cute! I love it! I'm so going to lift this when my new bella's come in!

Guess what I'm getting? Did you see the newest Bella? I placed an order the other day for 3 new bella's. CausaBella, Mamabella, and GiftaBella (with Hat). This was before I saw the new Bella - and so I emailed Em last night and guess what? She's going to tack on the newest Bella to my order - isn't she awesome?? I LOVE IT! So I've got 4 new bellas coming! I can't wait!
