Bellarific Friday and Some Candy!!

Friday, August 28, 2009

Hello again!. :)

Blog Candy is now closed! Thank you! :)

I am starting to really love Bellarific Friday's! I chickened out on last week's sketch, but this week's one was much more forgiving! haha I recently ordered a bunch of Bella's (thanks to these few week's of full time work) and even though I haven't inked them up yet, I think I need to order some more! LOL (Truth be told; I have the order ready to go in my shopping cart as we speak!)

Pregabella was an image I was given by a sweet SCS friend and I had colored her up while waiting for my own Bella's to arrive. Lord knows how I wish I looked like Bella when I was pregnant. Unfortunately, I looked more like Heffalump! LOL

I used dovetailed ribbon ends for the three horizontal panels in the sketch. Against the fun Cosmo Cricket paper, they really pop! Only needed to show a little bit of that ribbon since it's so bold. I didn't want it over powering the image. This card is going to a friend of mine who is expecting her third child. I am getting cluckier by the day! I think I need that new baby smell in this house again. :)

And now for the blog candy I promised you! I hit 50,000 visits last week sometime and I want to say thanks you to you all for taking the time to visit my blog and for all the sweet comments you leave! It's nothing much; just a couple of stamp sets and singles, and I may throw in a few more goodies before I send it to the lucky winner. ;) Just leave me a comment letting me know what stamps/cards you'd like to see more of. That's it! I'll keep the candy open until, ooo, lets say next Monday morning, August 31st at 9am. I'll draw a winner and post it on Tuesday. It's open to anyone, anywhere in the world too!

Have a fabulous weekend whatever it is you're doing!

What a cute image! I wish I looked like that too. I'm in that really awkward stage, where it's not totally obvious that I'm prego, but I definitly have a pooch going on. ANd when I tell people that I'm pregnant, they say "I had a hunch" lol. that just means "I was wondering why you were getting so chubby". OH well, it's all about the end result. baby.
Love your card!
