Card Samples

a very snowy Bellarific Friday

good morning sistahs!  It is 6:30 AM and i am lying in bed with my laptop actually on my LAP.  The house is quiet… (not for long).. soon my kidlets will be waking up and I will be hearing a SCREAMING SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS from the other room (don’t get me started on that show .. I really don’t understand what it’s about..LOL).  Soon the morning activities will begin… toothbrushing, hairbrushing, picking out clothes, approving picked out clothes, breakfast requests, boots, snowpants mittens, hats.. you get the picture.  so I am going to try to get this entry in while it is still quiet…….

I am SOOOOO excited for this weekend.  Paula and Linda are coming in today!!  They are teaching all weekend in bellaland.  Paula is staying with me! (yay I have a pajama craft party all to myself) and Linda has her hubs for the weekend but we will all “bond” in the store tomorrow.. sooo excited!!

Ok so for this week’s Bellarific Friday challenge, the theme was SPORTS/OLYMPICS.  note to self: I need more SPORTS RELATED STAMPS.. you will see why in a minute lol!  You will see some cards where people consider SHOPPING a sport (HERE HERE sistah!!!) and some boots for sport (people wear boots in some sports, no?  YES YES!) and we even have a RESIDENT FELLA! (WOOHOOOOOOO KEITH!!!) who has contributed this week!!  LOVE IT!

So here we go (starting to hear little footsteps..LOL)

Let’s see what the babeoramas worked on this week for us


P.S. I told you I heard footsteps two seconds ago?  I now have a little Chicklet (jayden) in my bed.. watching me and rubbing my arm..LOL.. told you it wouldnt be long!!









Let’s see what the sistahood was up to this week (I am now listening to MAX AND RUBY- just wanted to give you the update!)

    Oh, I really wanted to play this past week, but the bug got me! I even had a stamp all picked out the NO ONE used..shocking, lol! The cards are just stunning as always! I thought this was a great challenge!

  34. Pinky says:

    Hi Em – I’m kind of giggling at myself as I NOW just read that the theme was wintery sports….when I initially read the challenge the only word that stuck in my brain was “wintery”…hence the Snowbunnybella card I submitted. She isn’t really doing anything “sports” like….unless you count that she is probably standing in the freezing cold but still managing to smile and be fabulous a sport in itself…..well, I guess she is athletic afterall.
    Great submissions everyone!!
    Stay cozy and have a great time this weekend – sure wish I was there with you all.

  35. Margo S. says:

    Lol – looks like great minds all think alike – great cards ladies and gent!!!
