It's that time of the week again!

Our Bellarific Friday! I gotta tell you all that among ALL the other reasons why Friday is so wonderful for this day job babe, my fav part is the anticipation of hopping over to Emily's blog waiting for her to post all the weekly cards...and I'm not just talking about the babes, I'm really talking about the fans out there who play along...you ladies really do some AMAZING work and it always makes my Friday brighter!

On that note, let's get to my card this week....it has been a CA-RA-ZZZZY week for me so I decided to lay off the time consuming Mo's and tackle something quick and easy, but C-U-T-E.....I picked up all my new rubber when I was at Bellaland this past weekend and Umbrella Peep was calling my name. It has been a while since I coloured one and they are so darn cute, and this one with it's accompanying verse fit just dandy into this week's sketch. I'll tell ya now that it is glitter on that umbrella, but doesn't it look JUST LIKE RAIN! This was a total photographic accident! I did NOT plan it!


See those squirts of rain under the umbrella, well that is glitter too, and she is standing in a pool of a  'copic created' puddle which is embellished with Ranger glossy accents. I paired her up with Basic Grey sugar rush paper and stamped the umbrella on one of the subtle patterns from the 6x6 pad. Of course, I couldn't leave it just as is and added some shading with pencils, then cut it out and popped it up with some scrap dots. However, I curved the umbrella a bit so the top and sides are flush with the background paper and the only part that is popped up is the lower center area so it has the same contours as an actual umbralla! BRILLIANT, if I do say so myself!

NOW...for all you colour challenged gals who have trouble deciding what colour to use...well, we have got it all figured out for you....NAVY KRAFT and GREEN....now that that sound yummy or what! LOVIN' those colours. And if you don't get to play in the challenge, I hope you are inspired by those who do, as I always am!

Till next time, Linda (and if you are like me, you'll be checking Emily's blog frequently throughout the day waiting with baited breath for that Friday post!)
