I'm still spinning over the Ketto release, then there was Bellarific Friday and this afternoon I took some time off work to spend it with my BFF from grade 1 thru infinity who I have not seen in almost TWENTY YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was like I had just seen her yesterday...but with years of stuff to share! She looks FANTASTIC and we are already plotting our next outing! If you are reading Cathy, I'm still smiling!!!!
Now, one more cute story before I get on to my challenge card. The hubs had cataract surgery on Wednesday and as they were wheeling him down to the operating room the nurse looked down at his chart and said..."Are you the Bellarific Babe's husband?"....bwwwwhwhwhwhwhahahahahahaha.....poor guy, he really likes to stay anonymous and now he is known as a Bellarific Babe's husband! I may start calling him Bella-Babe-a-hub-a-bella! Bwaaahahahahah! OMG....he'd better not read this or i'm in trouble!
Okay, enough goofy stories 'bout my week and on to the card. I had a bit of trouble with the colors on my monitor and mistook the ivory for white, BUT I think I got the blue red and black figured out. This is Chatty Cathy and she is one of my fav's of the Chichi's. (but that is a weak statement cause i love ALL the chichi's). Anyhoo...when I get a color challenge I pull out the colors and place them in front of me. Then I flip thru my bella bindah and gaze at the images trying to decide which one would look good in those colors. There was something about these colors that reminded me of my Cat in the Hat Beginners Dictionary that I had when I was a kid! And Chatty Cathy could very easily be a Dr. Seuss character with that little pixie face of hers. So the decision was made, Chatty Cathy got center stage! I colored her with my copics, the ribbon is a misc piece from my stash and I think the paper might be Memory Box, but not sure about that either!
So to top off a wonderful week, tomorrow I am heading to Paula's with my BFF Pauline. I'll have my pencils and copics in tow along with my Bella Bindah's! We will eat, stamp, color, chat and laugh! I'm so looking forward to seeing those gals again! And as a bonus, since I now have a GPS there is no excuse for me getting lost on the way home!
Hope you have a Bellarific week just like I did!
