bellarific friday

happy birthday to the love of my life … oh and bellarific friday!

Hiya sistahs…

sorry I have been MIA this week.. it’s been a little stressful.. but all good stresses 🙂  Working on a new release..and running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off (thank goodness I have never SEEN that..LOL)

Today is Ryan’s 40th birthday.  It amazes me that I have been with him for exactly half of my life.. crazy ay?  I know it’s sometimes boring to read about all the personal intricacies of one’s life but out of respect and adoration, I must devote an inch of text to my hubster 🙂

a very happy birthday to my Ryan.. amazing husband and father and truly a best friend.  He takes my &*(&*% (most of the time..LOL).. and is my number 1 fan (again, most of the time..LOL).  Of course everyone has ups and downs.. no one is perfect… but in the 20 years that we have been together (OMG that means that I am turning 40.. insert KLEENEX here).. we have been so happy together and for that, I will be forever grateful.  I love you my Ryan and wish you another 40 of happiness and bliss.. (*ahem* with ME of course..LOL)

ok, his inch is over..LOL.. let’s move along to another 16 inches of bellarific friday shall we?  (I’m just moving on cuz I don’t wanna cry..LOL)

    Happy birthday to Ryan, for a fleeting second I thought it was Frankie’s birthday. Another great week of cards.

  7. Margo S. says:

    Yayyyyy!! I am thrilled to win this week – had a not so fun week with my not so delightful 12 year old son!!! LOL
    I ran out of time to send in my card this week, but will add it to splitcoast!!
    Loving all the different interpretations of the sketch!!!

    And Happy Birthday to Ryan!!

  8. DianaY says:

    Happy Birthday to Ryan! and I think you used more than an inch of text. But not every wife has a chance to extol the virtues of their husband to a huge online audience.

    this is the second time you hinted at a new release, hope it is really soon.
    and could you do a miniature version of the barcodes so that I could use it on the back of my cards

  9. JoAnn H says:

    Beauty sketch cards …

  10. Cindy Redding says:

    Beautiful cards! I turn 50 tomorrow so 40 is way in the past for me – haha! I have a feeling those Koi markers may be calling my name 🙂

  11. Nona says:

    Congrats to Ryan. What a lovely tribute. This week’s cards are amazing, as always.

  13. Happy Birthday Ryan. Hi Emily. Love everyone’s cards.

  14. Happy birthday to your hubby! Awesome cards by everyone!

  15. Violet says:

    Happy Birthday to Ryan.
    Great cards this week, as usual.
    Ahhh stitching – that’s going to be an easy one for me!…providing I can find the time to get to the studio.

  16. Carmen L. says:

    My 40th coming up and hubby’s just passed! We must be special peeps!! Great cards…love minibella’s Such talent!!

  17. This is my second comment because I have decided to take part in the challenge this week. Here is my card using Ruby and some stitching. I am practicing my colouring skills. This was done with watercolour pencils. I am hoping to be able to get some prisma colours soon. … (maybe for Mother’s day ?!!)

  18. Lisa T says:

    Happy Birthday to your hubby!
    This was a great sketch. I enjoyed seeing what everyone did it.

  19. Karin says:

    Lovely cards. Went to the shop for the first time this past weekend…just the kind of goodies I love to work with!

  20. Angel says:

    LOL! Em…..I’m not 11! More like 11+20!! You must be thinking of of someone else 🙂

  21. Lori M says:

    Another great batch of cards. What are most people using for stitching on cards? We bought a teeny craft machine and it just chews the paper.
