A sketchy Bellarific Friday

Hi everyone!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a sketch Friday today and I KNOW how you all lovey da sketches so I'm hoping for a good burst of joy later today when I go check out Emily's blog.

I decided to go for a flowery theme...what do ya think? It's a little early for spring but one can only hope eh! (how do ya like that Canadian slang?) This is Funky Freesias and I ADORE freesias...they were in my beautiful wedding bouquet that trailed down past my knees! Even with the very artsy bouquets of today's bride, which are nice, I still LOVE my ginormous trailing bouquet of fresh orchids, princess white roses and freeshia.

As usual, these freesias were stamped on bella's bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. I left the nestie in place and sponged some pixie pink chalk ink around the edges and when it was all glued down I added a good thick layer of ranger glossy accents to the glass jar.

Now for some non-card things before I get to next week's challenge. I happened to be looking thru the what's new section on Stamping Bella last night (YES...i was shopping!) and came across something so adorable I just need to is a Cuddly Bear Girl Pink Baby Onesie...with My Beary Best Friend on the front....soooooooooooo cute! I'm not sure when it was added, and you may have already seen it but I had to mention it anyhoo because I thought it was sooooo cute! The other thing that caught my eye was this real dudes surf the web mousepad...I may need to get me one (or 3) of those for the dudes in my house! And did you read Emily's post about the Japanese masking tape! Well they are here and should be up on the website soon. YUP...I need me some of those too so my order may have to wait a couple days!

NOW it is time for next week's challenge...with Valentines day just around the corner pull out those LOVEY stamps and make a card filled with LOVE. We all need a Valentines day card here is your chance to get started. And how do you like us Babes giving you a heads up on the challenges? You get a WHOLE ENTIRE weekend to work on a masterpiece so there are no more excuses not to 'bout in the spirit of the challenge we show Emily some extra LOVE this week and flood her with your creations! Let's show her the love!

Well, I don't know about you, but I've got a quiet weekend ahead of me and that means only ONE thing....this babe is gonna color!
