Bellarific Friday Sketch...late!

This was actually the Stamping Bella sketch for last week. I had it done, but did not get it posted! (oops!)

This card also fits the bill for our Inky One's Challenge hosted by Lou to use a color or colors we don't normally use. So, confession time...this was my first time using the SU In Colors for this year! (I know, I am dodging the tomatoes...I am such a hoarder!!). That Rich Razzleberry is gorgeous! And...I finally used my Liquid Pearls!! Sankari would be proud! She is the liquid pearl queen, you know!


Stamps: Bella's Garden
Paper: Ballet Blue, Rich Razzleberry, Kiwi Kiss, PTI White, DCWV patterned paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: CTMH Grosgrain Ribbon, Bella Charm, Stickles, SU Texturz Plate


My 7 year old LOVES to play in the sketch challenges...so she posted a creation as well! I think I have created a monster...


DH was saying he liked it better when I was not working and I must admit, I agree with his sentiment! I had a lot more time to play! I think once I get settled, things will be in a better routine around here. We can hope anyway...

How could I forget the Paper Challenge?!! LOL

51/100 projects complete!
How are you doing?? :)

Those are both so cute! And I would file away that comment about liking it better when you're not working . . . you never know when the time might come to be a stay at home mom again.

Great Card! Love the colors and the paper you used. Your daughter reminds me of my granddaughter loves tobe in all my stuff when she visits.

Great cards! I love the potted flowers and the embossing behind them.

Karen said...

Great card! And no, you have not created a monster....you are creating an artist!! I thought it was your card, until I finished reading!!! You both rocked it! :>

Karen said...

Oh yea.....did you post about your "Paper Challenge"? I'd love to read it if you did! Or is it simply a goal to make so many paper crafting projects? Just curious!! :>

You've created a monster? I lovely, creative monster then. You are going to have to work doubly hard now to keep up with her! These are both great cards.

Great card. I can't believe a 7 year old did the second one, she did a great job. Looks like a pro did it.

Hope you are doing well. Sounds like you are busy busy busy.

The cupcake stamp does have words in it but I cut them out and mounted them on the other side of the block. I figured I would use it without the works more than I would use it with them.

Gorgeous, gorgeous card Siobhan! And I can't believe the talent your daughter has! That's an amazing card for a seven year old :) She must take after her mama!

Jenn Embry said...

Your card is beautiful! Your daughter did a great job on hers too! My girls love to scrap.

Gina said...

WOW your daughter did a great job. I know Samantha love doing challenges now, wants to do them every day! Your pearls look great too!

Deb S. said...

Wow, these colors are striking together! Great job!

Kay said...

Working does get in the way of playing, doesn't it?
These cards are adorable and I love that your daughter wants to play along too. Fun!

Ok, I know Sankari as well, and she is definitely the liquid pearl QUEEN, but I think you could be PRINCESS if you keep it up...LOL! This is great. And what in the world are you doing hoarding the new In Colors? I have already bought 4 packs of Rich Razz, and burn through it like nothing, it's my fave! I have used at least one pack of every one already, of course, my club uses some, too. This is a great card!
