WELCOME TO BLOGABELLA

it’s bellarific friday, and a sneak peek!

Hiya sistahs.. OYYYY what a rough week I had :(  I am so sorry for my disappearance and KILLING the momentum of our release sneak peeks!

It was our new year this week AND my grandmother’s unveiling (this is a Jewish tradition where you go to the cemetery to “unveil” the monument and say your final goodbyes).. So we drove to Montreal and back in two days..tried to see our family stuffed in those days.. don’t ask..

Then my DARLING DAUGHTER decided to break her wrist AGAIN last night so we were in the emergency room from 7:30pm to 3:00 pm… grrr.. so now you know why I have been  MIA :(

Anyway I wanted to share another Christmas image with you… Christine Grove has hit it out of the ballpark again!.. her images are so full of personality it’s unbelievable.. don’t you agree?  Never have I seen a stamp like this around!  And each one of these Christmas Soldiers have a personality of their own…I think they may even be troublemakers LOL… Actually I KNOW they are..

Meet CHRISTMAS SOLDIERS.. I hope you love them as much as I do :)

christmassoldiers

Not sure you can see the middle one wiggling his butt? LOL.. the other one playing the guitar?  I just LOVE them!!!

And in this week’s roundup you will see a card made with them :)

This week’s challenge was a sketch!

K? Let’s play.

First before we start our Bellarific Friday “session” lol I need to express my deepest and most sincere sympathies to Amanda Reed’s (AKA Amandabella) family.  Amanda passed away suddenly yesterday morning and since hearing this news, I have been devastated.  Amanda was so talented, so full of life, and was  such an amazing part of our team a little while ago.  I am so so so sad to hear this terrible news :(.

I know there will be a bit of a somber feeling to this post… let’s just commemorate Amanda with images that came to life through colouring.. just what she was so good at doing.

This week’s theme was a sketch
