Bellarific Friday is Here!! (ok, well kinda)

Happy Bellarific Friday sistahs!  We are going to start having Bellarific Fridays starting next friday Feb 20th!  We will present you with a select few Bellarific Friday Babes who will help us and contribute in the challenges (we will let you know who these babes are next friday!) Of course Nicky is queen bella babe (LOL.. she will kill me for saying that) but it’s true! and I am princess bella babe..LOL… I mean, I should have a title too, no?

Ok so how the bellarific friday works is that I will present a challenge (or one of the bellarific babes will) on Monday of each week.  People who would like to participate, will email me their submissions (  In the subject line it should say BELLARIFIC FRIDAY FEB 20th (or the date it is for) with submitters name, blog address, email address.. Submissions will  be accepted no later than 5pm EST on Thursday evenings.  On Friday, depending on the volume of submissions, I will try to post all of them, or some randomly and then enter the rest into our gallery!

There will be a $10 gift voucher offered to the winner of the challenge!  Nicky and I want to keep this fun and challenging and don’t want this to become competitive etc.. it’s all about DA FUN.. sistahs!  WE ARE SOOOO EXCITED!!!!  ARE YOUUUUUUU???????

PS. of course all cards submitted have to have Stamping Bella images and sentiments and embellishments (if you can!)

Since Monday is “FAMILY DAY” and a statutory holiday in Toronto, I will be posting the challenge today!

but firssstttttttt…. take a looky at these cards.  Nicky has outdone herself once again 🙂  She challenged herself to use 1 sheet of paper (pink and green of course…we are on a pink and green kick right nicky? :P)

don't you wanna SQUISH her?

don't you wanna SQUISH her?

In this card, Nicky used our soft and luxurious Lyra colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits and bella blenders (I hate the word “stomps/stumps”..LOL).. she also used our new DREAM STREET paper called LULLABY, our PINK PUNCH variegated ribbon and of course our TURTLE TOTS CHEERLEADER (includes the sentiment).. is it YUMMY OR WHAT?


check out the ROSESSSSS… They are so fresh you can almost smell them!  Nicky used the same dream street papers and they were colored in with Copics.  The sentiment comes from Billboardabella’s words.  PHENOM!

Pick a rose.. any rose... Great for any occasion!
