Bellarific Friday on a Sunday!

So sorry I'm late!!!!! It's been a crazy busy couple of weeks at work as I'm assuming a Managerial Position at work for the next several weeks. With that and my commitment to healthy living, which means regular trips to the gym, I've been super tired at night! I did however manage to get dotty this weekend!!!! Polka Dots!!! I love em! Don't you?? And Tallulah and her Tutu accompany dots very well I think!

I coloured sweet Tallulah with my Touch Twin Markers

Here's what I used:

Next week's challenge is this fabulous Sketch~~~~

Flower Garden

Flower Garden

If you follow me on Facebook, you'll know that I am a huge fan of Flowers, by my frequent floral posts. There is such beauty in each flower, whether they be wild or tended, they are magnificent
I was drawn to this stamp when I was perusing the Bella Store for my DT selections

Simple Lines, yet gorgeous

I coloured the Flowers with my Touch Markers

Left it pretty plain with the exception of some Gold Smooch Glitter on the Petals

The sentiment is from Impression Obsession: Get Well Wishes

Speaking of Flowers and Gardens, I'm off to do some weeding (YUCK)

Enjoy your Sunday!

I've had this image kicking around for a bit and finally got him to play!

He is absolutely SCRUMPDILLYUMPTIOUS!!!! I can't help but giggle every time I look at him~

I coloured him up with my Touch Markers~

Here's a colour map for your perusal!

I set this image on a base of Paper from The Paper Loft Hooked on Fishing Designer Paper Line

I was going to just say Hooked on Fishing Line, but it sounds kinda funny doesn't it?

A Little Gift Tag for a Bellarific Friday!

Hello Baberoonis!!! Are you all ready for the weekend??

Kinibella is! She's headed for the Beach. I guess it's not going to rain on her parade this week, unlike here, where the weather forecast is calling for rain, rain and more rain!!!

This week's challenge was based on this photo

Isn't that a pretty photo??

The colours reminded me of a sea scape.

{Based on my creations the last couple of days, I MUST be yearning for the Ocean!)

I LOVE these types of challenges, because one photo can evoke such varied creativity amongst individuals!!! You MUST head on over to Blogabella to see what the Divas and Sistahs have created.

Next week, it's a sketch!

I can't seem to locate it at the moment, but I'll pull it up tomorrow {Cause I'll pinch it off a more responsible Diva's blog) and Edit my post

Please play along and you will get a chance to win free Rubbah

and who doesn't love new stamps? Especially when they're On da house!!!

Happy Stamping

Impression Obsession Challenge: Words of Encouragement

I have to tell you that I got my new IO Dies this week and it was just like Christmas~~~

The hardest thing was to decide which one's I wanted to use first.

As you've seen a few samples of the Sponge and Spritz technique on my blog in the last few weeks, you'll know that I am a total fan of this quick and easy technique.

In designing this card, I first went to find a sentiment that I wanted to showcase

You are my Sunshine......You Make me Happy When Skies are Gray

Evokes lovely memories of singing to Jon when he was a baby

He LOVED when I sang to him and it brought me great joy to bring a smile to his face

Funny, he doesn't seem interested in having me sing to him now (lol)

So, here I am getting off track again

I started with the sentiment, which made me think of a grayish sky background and then of course that gave me the opportunity to use my newest fave technique!!!!
And of course I thought the new Sea bird dies  would be perfect against my Stormy Sky

I also had to use a little stickles in the water portion of the card to give it the illusion of Sea Spray!!!

Simple, but Pretty, I think!!!

Make sure you head over to the Impression Obsession Blog to get the Links for this challenge and all the rules that will make you eligible to win a great gift certificate from Impression Obsession

If you've been hopping along already, you've just come from Laura's Blog

and of course, being a "Vicki", I'm at the end of the hop!

Happy Stamping and hope that you will join us!
