I just realized I did not post my Bellarific Friday card yet! I guess I was so consumed with going out with friends that evening and our boys coming home for the week that I was a bit preoccupied. Yup...the boys are home from school on what they call Reading Week....I'm not exactly sure if they have read anything yet besides the captions on x-box though! Yesterday I was also having a bit of anxiety over working all day and then cooking for 4+ adults again. I've gotten kinda accustomed to just winging it for Mark and I. Needless to say I pondered over some cookbooks yesterday morning to get the mojo going and planned a couple crock pot meals. Good thing that tomorrow is also holiday for some of us in Ontario so that is one less hectic day to worry about.
Anyhoooooo....how is your Valentines Day going? I got a little surprise from the hubs this morning and he bought me a new charm for my Thomas Sabo bracelet! A little black dress...wicked cute! I didn't buy him anything, but I am cooking up blackened filet mignon for dinner tonight and that is making my entire fam a happy group! For my Lovey Do card I chose Eloise is in Love and I do think she is lovely! She was stamped with Brilliance ink on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. The BoBunny paper was the inspiration for the color scheme but I did have a bit of trouble with the bright pinks only because I am not a lover of hot pink so I added a lot of soft beige shading around her with my pencils to tone it down a bit. I was pretty happy when it was done! Lots of glitter on her wings and some clear glaze pen on her shoes and heart finished her up.
Our challenge next week is a color challenge!!!!!!!!! What do ya think? Are you up to it? I know I am and as soon as I get off this computer I'm heading to the paper stash to find my inspiration. It is turqoise, pink and orange and since they are three of my FAV's I shouldn't have any trouble with this one. I'll be back tomorrow, with the card I was going to post today!
