And I just can't pull myself away...under a spell I can't break...

I am sorry for the super late post, sistahs. I have worked so hard all week to keep up with work and keep my blog updated, it just all caught up with me today. We all slept late, then met up with family to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. We had a yummy lunch at the lake...such a gorgeous day! Then when we got home, we all collapsed and took a nap.

So, I realize I'm horribly late for today's Sketch for You to Try. You can see it on Jen's blog. Here's my card:
Even though it took all day, I am lovin' how it turned out! I stamped Stella needs a prezzie in Brilliance Graphite Black on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored her with Copic markers. I wanted the image to take center stage, so I chose bold, bright colors to color her with, as well as adding glitter to the image for some extra glam. This also works for this week's OCC Challenge, which is to Bring on the Bling. Is the the one for me, or WHAT??? *wink*

Here's a look at the inside of my card:
I bought this sentiment from River City Rubber Works specifically to pair with this image. I think this could work for Christmas, New Year's, Birthday, or an anniversary. So perfect!! I love how Stella matches up with these sentiments. You'll see more of them, since I couldn't order just one! *grin*

To see more fabulousness with this sketch, check out Jen's blog (don't forget to welcome our guest for this month, Nancy Riley!), as well as Amy R., Amy S., Carole, and Susan. They have some fabulous eye candy for you, as well as some blog candy!

I am headed to bed (again!) but I'll be back tomorrow with some more fun. Have a fabulous day!
