well it’s friday again.. the great thing is that it’s basically the weekend.. the bad thing is that I didn’t accomplish HALF of what I needed to this week..LOL (what else is new).. But I had SO MUCH FUN NOT finishing all my accomplishments so that is all that counts, right? Bellaland was busy this week… preparing for our next release.. oops.. did I say that out loud??? Yes, sistahs, I did say that out loud.. SISTAHS, YOU WON”T BELIEVE OUR NEXT RELEASE.. in my little teeny tiny humblest of opinions, it is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMALISH.. Launch date will be approximately mid august.. will keep you posted but trust me it will be well worth the wait 🙂
So let’s get started .. got your tea? java? let’s boogie
Here’s DA SKETCH for da week sponsored by JENABELLA. We got such a great response and saw some new faces so WELCOME to da sistahood our brand new sistahs!
Let’s take a looky at what da BABES contributed this week… ALL I CAN SAY IS YUMMMMMM!
if you take a looky at HER blog, you will see some GREAT news that she shared and a card with TEDDYBELLA and a popped TUMMY.. originally inspired by Debbie Olson.. so brilliant and beeyoootiful! Jen also made a gorgeous card using VIOLET BITTYBLOOM and of course a little bit of COSMO CRICKET designer paper. I love the look of the image colored on KRAFT paper!
Lindabella made a BEEEYOOTIFUL card using CUPPYCAKE WITH A HUGGABUGG ON TOP.. isn’t it FANTASTIC? If you meander (lol on meander) over to her bloggy you will see a card using MEOWY amimal (by TIDDLY) and LITTLE JOHNNY DEPSTER by our very own Tiddly.. Love those cards!
if you explore Paula’s blog, you will also see a fabby card using ATTITUDY CATS and RED POPPIES (even though they aren’t red..LOL). Now what’s all dis bidniss about a GLAZE CLEAR PEN that Paula uses? well let me tell you it is PHENOM.. a handy ball point tip GLAZE pen that adds glass-like dimension to any product! WE GOT THEM IN! you can find them here. A great inexpensive tool that I believe EVERYONE should own..LOL
and lotsa lotsa goodies (that I still have to post on line..LOL shhhh)
So how’s DAT for this week’s EYE CANDEEEEE???? YUMMY no?

Ok here goes! I want to thank EVERYONE for taking the time and contributing to this post.. It is my pleasure to post all this wonderful eye candy and thanks to the BABES and DA SISTAHOOD for contributing )
Our VERY OWN DENABELLA (who works in Bellaland with me) made the most PHENOM layout EVAH.. using COSMOCRICKET Girl Friday paper and my favorite quickutz YOGURT FONT (did I mention I am now re-obssessed with quickutz? LOL) just pure YUMMINESS! I just love to see how the sketches are interpreted both in Layouts and in cards.. another thing that makes DA BELLA oh so very happy! Dena doesn’t know how much trouble she’s in… she will be forced to make more layouts :). At first I thought she was talking about ME being as sweet as sugar and spice and I quickly learned she was talking about her 2 daughters.. HMPH
