Late Bellarific Friday...AGAIN!

Earlier in the week I thought I'd write my post Friday morning, because I didn't have to go to work! YAY! Then yesterday I woke up and thought it was Saturday....I didn't even bother to turn on the TV to watch the Today show because I thought it was Saturday. So I do my regular Saturday things and putz around the house and once it warmed up outside I spent the rest of the day cleaning up in the yard.

By the time I realized it was Friday I was immersed in trimming back an overgrown dogwood shrub and was too tired to do anything else. So early to bed and early to rise (I've been up since 6) and I have another whole day ahead of me. The agenda...
  • coffee!
  • a trip to the garden center
  • plant some Heather
  • mail cards to Emily (so PAULAbella doesn't take over Scrapfest)
  • put some ribs on the smoker
  • make a quick trip to Costco (maybe..or maybe hubby will go alone!)
  • COLOUR!!!!
Before I get to that I DO have a card I made for yesterday, and I see that Emily was having some probs uploading pics to her blog so this is your FIRST viewing! I made this card for Baby B, aka Derek, aka Peanut, aka Spinky. We called him peanut as a baby because he (they) were 5wks preemie and Derek had that preemie body, big belly, skinny limbs etc. Then somehow, and I wish I could remember why, we started calling him Spinky/The Spink. I wish I would have written down how we came to that because there was a reason which I cannot remember for the life of me.

Derek loved dogs and in one of his school primers he wrote that he wanted to be a vet, but didn't want to work on poodles because he didn't like them. It had something to do with the way the groomed them with all those poodle puffs. Heeehee! So I thought an appropriate card for him would be Stamping Bella's Woofin' it up by Christy Croll.

I coloured it up with about 5 million copic markers, okay, not that many....but LOTS and took a stab at writing Bessie's name on there. She is our crazy West Highland White Terrier. The paper is from Kaiser Craft and the tickets were out of the same pack. On one of them I wrote the date of his birthday.

On the inside I again used some labels from the paper pack and paired it up with another one of my River City sentiments and the arrow from Stamping Bella's journal your art out GRUNGY SET..

Now for some Babe news. We have a new girl on the block, Natasha Kara...she is new to the blogging world and you REALLY MUST check out her blog HERE. She has a wonderful style, very Tim-ish, which I love and I CANNOT wait to see what else she has to share with us.

Next week our challenge is all about showers...APRIL SHOWERS....or baby showers, wedding showers, raindrops....whatever....use your imagination. Pick up a sketch out there if you are sketch challenged and play along.

Whew, that was long winded! See, that's what happens when I'm gone for a few days.
