What's in a picture...

Hello Folks and Happy Bellariffic Friday!  Today's Stamping Bella challenge was a photo inspiration...what do you see when you look at this photo?  I mean there's patterns, layout, colors, theme - lots of things and I'm sure that the Babes will all have a different take.  I took color - the burst of red and soft blues with a subtle showing of yellow and I also took the zig zag pattern in the pillow and curtains. I thought about making a baby card or maybe a childs room card but in the end I decided to create a Valentine's Day card for my stash using two cute kids - Stamping Bella's Millie and Milo exchange prezzies. 

Here they are...aren't they so hugable?

Next week we have another sketch challenge and I hope you can find some time to play along.  We have a holiday on Monday here in the states and I'm so looking forward to the extra long weekend to play in the craft cave.  Perhaps you can find some time too!  Don't forget to send a photo of your creation to to be included in the Friday blog lineup.  And there's prizes up for grabs - one to a commentor and one to a contributor.  So give it a try.  Oh and you have to see the "specials" category in the Bella shop - there are a ton of stamps that are reduced to tremendously low prices.  Em's clearing out to make room for new stuff and you get the benefit of that.  Oh and she has a new blinkie too.  Check it out here and swap it for the old one.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend!
