Yours Truly,

Happy Bellariffic Friday Folks.  Hope your weekend is off to a great start - that's how I see Friday's anyway...the start to two days full of running errands, sleeping in and having some fun.  Usually in that order too!  Tehe!  For today's challenge we were given a great sketch.  And you had a choice to do a rectangle or circle.  I almost did a circle since this looked pretty easy but I had a vision and decided to run with it.

I colored up a Diane Duda image released in rubber through Stamping Bella called Yours Truly.  I love these images!  They're so elegant and are so girly.  I colored this one with my copics and I still love the way it looks.  As you may recall the last image of Diane's I colored with Distress Markers on Watercolor paper.  Today I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper colored with copics and added shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.

Design paper is In Bloom by My Mind's Eye, black cardstock is Bazzil and white is Neenah Classic Crest Solar white.  I flip the sketch and added some vintage crocheted ribbon I found at the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY last weekend.  I had a ton of fun and thought this find was just beautiful.  A double sided satin bow tops it off and some half crystals in the right hand corner finish this off.  Finished card size is 5 x 6 1/2.

For next week's challenge it's Sizzin' Summer.  Just color up your favorite Bella Summer stamp - there are oh so many that can fit this one!  And I'm looking forward to summer if only the dang rain would stop coming down here!  It's been raining for a week now.  I know it means the flowers and veggies are happy but there are pools of water all over my yard!

I'm patiently waiting for my new release stamps to arrive in the mail.  Hope you were able to find something in the latest release that caught your eye.  Or your smile - I love Christine Grove's humor!

Stay dry and have a great weekend!
