Sooooo Happy it's Friday!

Yes, I'm happy on so many levels today. First, I took the day off and spent the morning shopping then sitting and chatting with Kim at Pickle for a good long time, second we finally got light fixtures installed over the bathroom mirrors, and last but not least....it's bellarific Friday! This week's sketch was submitted by yours truely, I'm not a sketch person, you'll notice that most of my cards are mounted smack dab square in the center with maybe one or two designer papers behind it. But I'm branching out, trying new things and enjoying every minute of it! I just checked out the blog and it really made me smile that so many sistah's played along this week.


For my card I used Beach Hut and Ball with the Life's a Beach sentiment...love that sentiment...and trailed some bella dots behind it. And I also used pencils and gamsol for a change instead of copics. No particular reason, just wanted a change I guess. And check out my new EK dotted wave border punch...another treasure I came home with on my trip to Stamping Bella last Saturday. I love those punches, they are so dainty and the perfect size for cards and not to mention, they are SLIM so take up VERY little storage. The person who came up with that is pure GENIOUS! Oh, and thinking of pencils...I'll be making the hike to Scrappin & Stampin Livonia next Saturday to take Paula's class! I'm totally pumped! It's only about an hour and a half drive and it will be soooo worth it!

Well, I know it's only 8pm, but I think my day of shopping and holding up those light fixtures while Mark wired them up took the energy out of me. I'm gonna spend the rest of the evening just chillin' out on the sofa with the pooch. For all my American friends, have a great 4th of July tomorrow!

I am so happy to see you do something with pencils again. I can't believe the colour you bring out though, just as you do with the copics, it's awesome!!!

It was SOOOO nice catching up with you today. I have missed those chats! FYI...got those programs done with literally 10 minutes to spare!

Your card is TOO cheery and fun.

OMG, I still have not looked at the cards on Em's blog. I went on later friday and they were not there and now I just been busy. Ok, this is some serious Summah sunshine! I didn't even realise you had this image. It's beautiful and if that water was real, I would walk into it!!
