Hiya sistahs! I am typing this whilst (love the word WHILST) in Montreal.. My father finally acquiesced to move into a beautiful residence for a year to test it out and help him convalesce. I am here helping him furnish it and make it feel like home. My troops are on their way to help build Ikea furniture and to visit with their grandparents and family… it’s been such a DOOZY of a year sistahs.. don’t get me started!
Ok enough BLABLA about me.. let’s talk about Bellarific Friday shall we?
This week’s theme is ANYTHING GOES.. which is SO much fun because as long as you use a current Stamping Bella stamp… ANYTHING GOES! lol..
Let’s see what our baberoonis came up with shall we? Now our Baberoonis have a different challenge every first of the month.. they play with our STAMP OF THE MONTH! This month’s stamp of the month is GAME ON and is 20% off all month long

Hey there, Tamabella (aka Tammie Edgerton) here. I was really excited when Em invited me to be a Wonderful Wednesdays guest designer for the month of October. I warned her up front I was pretty rusty, but she wanted me anyway! LOL My markers haven’t actually touched paper for about six months (I know, *gasp*). Life just gets a little crazy sometimes. Can any of you can relate? Anyway, as I was trying to figure out what I wanted to color, I noticed I was following stamping royalty…none other than the amazing Sandy Allnock herself! YIKES! Absolutely NO pressure, am I right, sistahs!?!
So, as I tried to settle my nerves, I decided to go with my favorite season…fall! I mentioned I haven’t colored in a while, but that hasn’t stopped me from adding rubbah to my crafty stash! *wink* I broke out Tiny Townie Patricia Loves Pumpkins. Is she flippin’ adorable or what!?! With that much cuteness going on, I decided to keep the layout fairly simple. For details, including which Copic markers were used, please visit my blog, One Happy Stamper.
here’s a closeup
and the final finished card!
Well, I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Have a good one, and I’ll be back next week with some more coloring fun!

Happy Monday! Elaineabella here, as usual. Sadly, I don’t have a new Marker Geek Monday for you this week though. Last week was not a great week, and I did NO colouring whatsoever. Hoping to remedy that this week, but in the meantime I thought I’d post a round up of all the Marker Geek Monday posts so far this year. That way you can check out any posts you may have missed, and have a handy link to any you may want to revisit. Fingers crossed for a better week this week, and a new Marker Geek Monday next week!
Posts include pinnable images showing colour combinations etc, videos and general tips/info.
