Flower Power!

Happy Bellariffic Friday folks!  Our theme is flower power and I've used an image I bet you wouldn't expect!  This card is heading to someone I know that just found out she is expecting again.  She has a house full of boys and I wanted to send her my wishes for a baby girl!  Of course, another boy would be just fine as hers are so dang cute but I thought a girl would be nice to try to even out the household.

I've used Mo Manning's image Toby is Two which is released in rubber through Stamping Bella.  This one cracks me up.  I know I've seen many a child throw a tantrum like this.  To bring in our flower theme I went with the design paper My Mind's Eye, The Sweetest Thing, Bluebell 6x6 paper and then the MFT Hibiscus flower die.  The sentiment comes with the image and I've stamped it onto Bella's Bestest paper and cut it out using the MFT Fishtail flags die-namic.  The background die is also from MFT, it's the Oval Decorative Doily Die-namic.
Next week we have another sketch...are you catching the pattern here?  Sketch, theme, sketch theme.  It sure makes it easier for me to remember!  So take a look and maybe you can play along.
Now I know the date shows the 13th but trust me - this is for the 6th.  And remember to send a photo of your creation to by Thursday night.  She'll include you in the blog lineup and one lucky creation will receive some Bella Bucks.  Want another chance to win some Bella Bucks, just leave her a comment.  She picks one each week for $10 in Bella Bucks.
Now I have some celebrating to share with you.  Today I turn 50!  Yup, and I'm happy about that!  I also will be celebrating my third anniversary as a Bella Babe.  On August 30th, 2010 Emily sent me an email to ask if I'd like to join the Babes.  I'm so glad she did.  I love her images and I love working with all the Babes since then.  So, I'm feeling the need to share.  I have a gift card for $25 in Bella Bucks to share with one random comment I receive on this post from now until September 7th!  No gimmicks, just leave me a comment and I'll pick a name when I get back from vacation!  I'm heading to Salt Lake City to celebrate turning 50 and surviving!  This has been a very full year and I'm so thankful for everything!   Oh and Emily posted that she has a new release coming soon!  Wouldn't you like to have some bucks to go shopping???
Enjoy the last dog days of summer!  I know kids head back to school soon and nights will be coming much quicker.  Get out and have some fun before the leaves start falling.
Thanks for stopping by!
