A happy Thursday to you all!

Hope you're week has been painless and carefree. I've been working all week, which I don't mind, but after a few months of only working three days a week, I'm not going to lie to you - it's a little hard to be happy about it! Even though it wasn't by choice, I was thoroughly enjoying my half work weeks. :) Don't tell The Man, but a teeny part of me is thankful this full time work is only temporary! LOL

Today I have Bellarific card to show you and she's much more diligent about reading than I am. I am not one to sit still for very long (unless my hands are busy stamping or typing!), so books and I don't see eye to eye all that often (the exception being the Twilight books which have been the first books in probably over 10 years that I've been glued to). Bookwormabella however, doesn't have a problem reading multiple books at a time! I wonder what type of books she'd read? Self help books, Mills and Boon novels, autobiographies? My guess is all of the above!

I used this week's Bellarific sketch for this layout. My oval nesties arrived with yesterday's mail, so I was able to play this week. Even though I've only owned them for less than 24 hours, I luuuurve my oval nesties! They make me happy. *grin*

Miss Bookwormabella was colored up with reinkers and an aquapainter. For the two rectangle panels, I used the same patterned paper so they wouldn't detract from the image. I pretty much followed the sketch to the T. I follow instructions well. :) LOL

Thanks for stopping by today. Take care.

OHMIGOSH! She is gorgeous! I just ordered her with the last release/free shipping thing and can't wait to get her. I still need to get my hands on some nesties and learn to color like you (any tutorials on THAT??) and I'll be set :o) I love your coloring - you really know how to bring a stamped image to life, Sandra!
