It's another Bellarific Friday!

As soon as I saw Nicky’s challenge this week I knew without a doubt I wanted to use the funky plants hanging block. One problem tho…I didn’t have it yet…so I bust my tail over to Pickle HOPING it would be on the rack and there it was, just like it was waiting for me. Needless to say, I couldn’t walk out with just one single stamp, so I got FIVE new Stamping Bella’s. Yes, FIVE! I was so excited I went next door to see the girls who are busy closing Bride & Joy, got my best sheepish grin on, slowly pulled them out of my bag and fanned them in front of my face! I was giddy! I raced home and think it was the first time EVAH that I actually bought a stamp, inked it up and got it onto a card all in one day! I love it so much I think I’m gonna bring it to work and perch it on my desk so I can admire it all day! I'm gonna look at it and think of warmer weather when I can hang baskets on my deck.

The image was stamped in versafine, cut out with my nesties and coloured with pencils and gamsol. I left the nestie in place and sponged the edge with a bit of chalk ink, added a bit of glitter and some glossy accents. I even knew that I wanted to use the new Basic Grey Porcelain paper and check out the bee brad!

OMG!…it is just to perfect! I’m in love with Porcelain paper and funky hanging plants!

Beautiful card! The bee brad is so cute too. What I want to know is which 5 stamps did you buy? I think we are going to see some more awesome cards in the next couple of weeks.
