It’s BELLARIFIC FRIDAY! and a REALLLY warm welcome toooooo….

Alice WERTZABELLA (Alice thinks her new name sounds like an exotic cheese.. I think it sounds JUST PERFECT. LOL).

I have been admiring Alice’s work for a long time now.. one of her techniques which makes me say “WOW” every time is her “lineless” techniques.. just gorgeous!  You can visit her on her BLOG or you can drool on Instagram (@alicewertz).. .  So when she agreed to be on our team I was absolutely thrilled and I think all da sistahs will be thrilled too!  All of my babes inspire me every single day.  I am so lucky to have all of the babes and my whole sistahood.  Sheesh. Im getting sappy..

So before I start hysterically bawling (lol) I will start bellarific friday Right NOW..  Ready?

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!

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.
