I don't know about you....

...but I'm doin' the happy Friday dance! Tonight we are gonna have a little celebration with friends to bring on hubby's 50th b'day (which isn't until Tuesday). Then Saturday I think I just might sleep until 10am because I have not quite recovered from the West coast time change yet.

On a crazy note while I write this post Thursday night I have reduced myself to watching Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin because our cable adapter is on the fritz in the kitchen and I can't get anything over channel 18 and I'm not comfortable on the sofa typing with my laptop on my lap. I'm missing my art journal too because I have not even opened it in almost two weeks. This weekend I'm gonna get messy with paints I think...I'm needing it.

For Bellarific Friday this week it was all about stripes. Let me say, this babe is NOT lacking any striped paper...I cannot resist striped, polka dot or plaid paper. I'm weak, and there is something really homey and rustic about them that I like. However, I don't go overboard, especially with stripes and usually go with the less is more rule when I use them. Just like I did with Anastasia here! This one is for Bren who always leaves me the nicest comments and she wanted to see what I did with her hair.


I just LOVE those blue frames on her glasses and wish I had the confidence to wear something really funky like that. I matched up with some Basic Grey Pyrus and after stamping her on bella's BESTEST paper I used the following copic markers on her. (and of course some pencils for the shading!)

E0000, 000, 00, 11, 15, R20, B95, 97
E51, 53, 41, 43, 44, 33, 35, 37, 95, 97, 99

In case you are wondering, the doily was cut from a Cheery Lynn Designs die that I picked up at the Stamp Show in Novi. Those dies are SO intricate and I wish I had bought more.

Next week our challenge is a scary one...and not in the halloween way! IS THERE SNOW AT YOUR HOUSE? Yup, that is the challenge...use some snow on your card. I certainly hope there will be no snow here and I hope this doesn't put a jinx on it.

I can not even put in to words what a tough emotional week it has been for me, so, I am squealing with excitement over the card I feel was meant for me. (heart) Thank you for the smile you have brought me this morning. She's beautiful!! Such perfect colors. I love what you've done with her. And I have to tell you, I wore blue framed glasses growing up. Yup, but they were the cat-eye shape. I wonder if that gives my age away? :) Thank you Linda. Eeek!
