Uptown girls are allowed to be late, aren't they?

I have only 3 more days at the 'gas' before I am off for two weeks  (less one day) of holidays! I lost that one day because I took a day off a couple weeks ago to get some Christmas cards done. Since I had to work Monday anyway, working Monday and Tuesday was not so much of a big deal.

I'm certainly looking forward to some time off though. It has been a crazy hectic year because my hubby has been travelling a LOT, which thankfully is ending, and this babe needs a break from everything. I'd like to say I plan to spend my days watching movies, cuddling with my pooch, drinking tea (or cappuccino) and just relaxing my days away. However, if you know me, you know that wouldn't last and I might do that for a day then get busy into some reorganizing project. Or maybe vaccuum every square inch of my house with my new Dyson Animal!  I know when I go back to work the first three months are gonna be hectic so I need some time to recharge however I decide to do that.

Work and life aside, we had an awesome sketch this week. One of my fav sketches by the way and I have used variations of it numerous times in the past but never with Stamping Bella's Quinn.

Isn't she just the cutest thing EVAH!!!!! I know this is a repeat, but I can't help myself. I have to join in with Paula's Uptown Girl support group. And I have a special person who will get this card from us along with her new black Uggs. Since purple is her fav colour, black uggs with a purple coat was the colour scheme I had to go with.

I stamped her on bella's BESTEST paper and used the following copics, along with some shading with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

E000, 00, 34, 44, 49
RV00, 10, 23, R21, 83, 85, 89
V01, 12, 15, 17, N1, 3, 5, C4, 6, 8, 9

Bellarific Friday will be on hiatus for the next couple weeks but we will be back in the new year with  new challenges incorporating many of your suggestions. And just because there is no challenge, I will still be here so pop in and take a peek.

till next time, Linda
