It’s an AMAZING Bellarific Friday sistahs!!!

Oh how I love sitting down with my coffee and posting all the submissions.. it gets my juices flowing.  People always ask WHY oh WHY don’t you use “MR. Linky”.. so people can add their own submissions and less work for you!  Well.. It is a lot of work.. over 2 hours per post.. sometimes way more.. but Mr. Linky is no where NEAR as nice as seeing all the cards in front of you… well worth the effort no? Me thinks so.

So this week’s theme was a sketch!

sketch

I loved working with this sketch.. ok, I didn’t follow it to a “t” but still had fun with it!  It’s all about interpretation.. and I LOVE seeing how all da sistahs interpreted the sketch!

HERE WE GOOOOOOO!

emilybella

Here is my card… I used NATURE’ S SILHOUETTES (the dragonfly) and BIG WORDS ONCE SHE STOPPED RUSHING… I just loved combining the stamps .. the solid with the script. The BIG WORDS are so much fun to work with.. can be such an easy card and at the same time, you can build on it and make it “fancy”!

It’s Bellarific Friday!!! WOOHOO

Sistahs.. where do the weeks go?  I don’t get it .  I have all these plans and NONE of them come to fruition.  Ok maybe a couple of them.  I challenged myself this week to colour an image every single day.  and I succeeded!  I have been sharing my work on our Facebook page AND on IG.  I am going to start sharing it on the blog too.. I don’t know why I don’t.  hmph.  You can find our FB page HERE and you can find our SISTAHOOD group HERE.  It’s HOPPIN’ over there.. so many gorgeous samples and tips and tricks happening there.. Join!

I have to tell you that this colouring business has been meditative for me.. I’m in love again… Loved my quiet in my corner in the basement surrounded by all the things I love.. images.. markers.. pencils.. paints.. AHHHH.. BLISS!

Also don’t forget tomorrow is the last day to get WANDA (stamp of the month) at 20% off ANDDDDD this coming Tuesday is CRAZZZZY Tuesday!! stay tuned for our 24 hour CRAZY SALE!!! it’s gonna be fun!

Now let’s discuss this week’s theme.. a sketch!  I find sketches sooo helpful.. kinda like a puzzle.  LOVE.  I have been “pinteresting” sketches and printing them out and bringing them to my “corner” so when I am ready to make a card,  I have the recipe!  LOVE.

It’s Bellarific Friday! on FRIDAY! And one of my new obssessions/passions

aside from stamping and journaling and painting and stamping again and collecting and and and  …..

I am obssessed with… you ready?  An age old natural product… essential oils.  They are my BEST BEST friends.. I cannot begin to tell you about how much they have helped my family..Like FOR REALS.  THEY CHANGED ME.. and they changed my WHOLE FAMILY.. even the male non-believer.. I’m not mentioning any names..lol.   They are in my purse at all times  from  headaches.. to tummy aches.. to nausea to just needing a boost.. these are my heros!  You know me.. I NEVER mention anything I don’t firmly believe in.  I NEVER do.  These I have been using for the past 6 months and I am ready to SCREAM from the top of my lungs to anyone who will listen (LOL)  about how these have worked for me!  I loved them so much, I bought a kit from Young Living essential oils and the rest is history.  the BEST investment of my life.. and such fun research to see what I can use when :).. If you would love to hear more about this, just email me or message me on facebook or ask in the comments below :) it would be my pleasure!  I am also thinking I may include one day of the week devoted to a combo I discovered, a single oil and what it has done for me :)..  I guess when I love something so much I feel the need to shove it down your throats so you do it with me.. is that SO wrong? LOL.  You can just call me ESSENtiabella n’k?

Ok enough about my new obssession.. ok never enough but enough for now. LOL.

Let’s discuss this week’s bellarific Friday shall we?  our theme this week was a COLOUR CHALLENGE!
