Giddy Up!

Little know fact...I used to have a red Mustang convertible with a personalized license plate that said "Giddy Up" (and this was when I lived in Texas, which I think makes that plate extra cute!). We had to trade that car in for a vehicle that would fit a car seat after my son was born! It was totally worth it, but I miss my pony now and again!

Now that you all know about my need for speed, I can show you the card I made for the Bellarific Friday Sketch!

And the sketch:

Stamps: Giddyupabella (see why it reminded me of my pony?!)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Naturals White, and patterned paper from my stash! Yippee!
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics (B97, B95, B93, B91,C7, C5, C3, 0, W1, E00, E07, E21, E29, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, E57, E93)
Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware, 100 yen store ribbon

Are you interested to see where I am at with my Paper Challenge?! I made some MAJOR progress this weekend! I am not sure if I have shared this previously, but I have 4 scrapbooks going at once. One is the "family" album and then I do one for each of my kids. (Yes, by the time the 3rd child's album comes along, I am sick of seeing the same pictures!)

At any rate, it is easy for me to whip out the pages once I have the layout completed in the family album, as I typically copy it in the child's album. Soooo...I completed 25 pages at the crop yesterday! And...I made this 1 card, so that is 26 projects!!!

Paper Challenge Scorecard: 36 projects complete/100

I am thrilled to have some of you playing along! :) Can't wait to hear how you are doing!!

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! Thanks for dropping by to say hello!

I Love your card! Looks like I need to check out some of those new (or new since the last time I looked!) Bellas! The patterned paper you've used with her and her horse are just perfect!

25 layouts at one crop?! Holey Camole Macarole! WOW! I'm impressed! I have the kidlets scrapbooks and the family ones done by year and I'm WAY behind on ALL of them. I need to get my scrapping mojo back up and running. I just get so overwhelmed by the number of pictures, number of products (I know, I know, that shouldn't be overwhelming, but sometimes choices can be!), and number of hours it takes me to complete a layout.....I'm not the fastest crafter in the West! :>

Yee-haw! I totally love this! Great ribbon! I thought you died some twill ribbon to match. :)

scubasubie said...

YEEHA! Love that card!!!! And 25 layouts in one crop?!?! You are my hero!!!

Grace said...

Wow! You are definitely queen of the scrapbook gf! I can't even imagine getting that many done in a month, much less one crop!!! Since I found cards, sadly I have to say the scrapbooks have stayed in a sleepy little box, unpacked since the last move. I am waiting for a bigger space to spread out... but I know it will still take a push to get me back into it! Congrats on all the work you got done and your card is just fabulous! Need for speed, huh? Oh the things we learn! LOL! I confess I had a touch of that myself! :)

Super cute card. I can't believe how many layouts you got done at one crop. I do the same type of albums. One family one (that is my oldest daughter's album since she has been around the longest0 and one for each of the other kids plus albums for my "faux grandkids", lol, and for all of my unofficial children, aka my oldest daughter's best friends. I usually copy the same layouts with small variations.

I think I missed something since I know nothing of your paper challenge. Fill me in, I have drawers and drawers of paper to use. Especially now since I'm pretty much stampin up only but I have years of paper in my collection..I mean supplies. LOL

Oh I just love this Bella image. I have it too and made several cards. In fact, I sold one of my cards with this image this past weekend. Too funny.

Just love your color combinations on this design.

Kay said...

I used to have a mustang that I miss too. it didn't have a cute license plate, but I loved it anyway :) One day I'll get another...

I am in awe of your project progress! And if the scrapbook pages are as cute as this card, then I am doubly in awe. At this rate you'll have the challenge done in a couple of weeks.

Very cute...I love the license plate verbiage too funny. Really cute card.

Stephanie said...

that license plate is too cute. I used to live in Virginia and they have more personalized plates than we do in PA. I always go a kick out of trying to interpret them :)

Love the card & so proud of your progress with the scrapbooks! Make sure you bottle some of that water and drink plenty when you need to get more done :)

Vicki said...

Awesome job on this sketch - your cards is fantastic!

peggysue said...

That is excellent progress, you must be the scrapbook queen! 25 layouts? Cannot imagine it! I don't know if this paper challenge was quite fair . . . if you don't scrap. I made ten cards for a swap though, so I am now 11/100! That's something!

Holly said...

That is a darling card and I can see how it was inspired by your former car! Sweet! I'm inspired by your scrapbook! I'm SO behind... :) Keep it going!

Naomi said...

I think we all miss our pre-baby cars! My Honda Accord I still think of it once in a while. But, I do have a sweet van, so I can handle it! This card is GREAT!!! The coloring looks amazing. Cowgirl Bella, I love it! As a born and bred southerner who rides, Giddy Up!

LOL Ok that explains a lot! Your crop day pushed your numbers through the roof! Well slow down girl! LOL 25 is amazing!

Grace said...

OMgoodness... this is adorable!!! LOVE this Bella!!! I can't even fathom 25 layouts in a month, let alone one crop!!! I have really lost my scrapbooking mojo since i found cards and my photos went digital. I need to get them out and work on them!

Traci said...

Love this card! Great coloring and the papers are so cool! My dream car is a red '66 Mustang, one of these days I'm going to have one!

Teresa Jenkins said...

I love this card! You got me hooked on bellas too! I keep browsing but am holding off.. can't fight much longer with looking at what you are making with them!!!! 25 pages... wow, that kinda knocks me down a bit, I did 3 layouts and 3 cards at my crop this weekend... though as you may recall that is awesome for this chatterbox! Great work as usual!!!!!

Great card!! I was blessed with my brothers Stang when he moved on to his next car....when I was just getting out of high school. His was black with a T-roof...it was so fun!! I miss that too, sometimes. Now my teen wants her own, lol.
Great card, love Cow-girl ones.
