Here is a card cased from Debbie Olson of Thinking Inking. This card uses the matching wheel. I pretty much copied the card to a tee! but I used all Stampin Up supplies and changed the sentiment.
I tried and tried to find the card on Debbie's blog- but I gave up after 40 pages and some searches.

This is completely cased from Lauren Meader. I changed up the Bellas and the orientation-- but the concept is all Lauren's. Us Mom's ...we wear a lot of different hats! Take a look at her card here. Her's has way more thought involved. I just picked a few images that relate to the Mom I made this card for.
Are you thinking that I own everyone of these Bella stamps???? NOT SO! I do own several Bellas but last year I participated in a Bella image swap. I swapped 68 ( yes 68) Dogwalkabellas for various images that were available at the time. Now I dug into my stashed stamped images and pulled some of these out. Check out the swap forum over at Splitcoast to see if there is any going on now.
Stamps: various stamping Bellas
Paper: SEI diamond print, white, rose red
accessories: circle punches and Markers for coloring.

These are the faces of my family. Aren't we sweet? My oldest, the pouty one, was annoyed b/c the dogs were not cooperating and in the picture. Hmmm that would be 7 moving objects all in one shot. Impossible!

I am home- I spent the last 4days in California in the Napa Valley! Wow what a great time. Not much in the wine area-- but definitely a great conference for work. Boy did I learn a lot about Internet marketing!!
I cased this from JanTink-- thought it was cute and wanted to share something quick before the jet lag really kicks in. I don't usually scrap- but this sure was fun!
On a side note: the boys really do look after her!
