Don't you think I'm so sexy... I'm dressed so fresh so clean...(So fresh and so clean clean)

It's FRIDAYYYYY, Sistahs! I'm so glad. The sun is shining (it's 80 degrees here), birds are tweeting, and there are new stamps at Stamping Bella!! What could be better? Emily has added yet another line to the Stamping Bella brand...this one is called Ketto. You can read all about it and see samples HERE, and you can see all the stamps HERE. I am having a hard time figuring out a favorite...YIKES! Right now I'm loving Agnes, Charlotte, Ivy, Margarita, Suzette, and Tatiana...if I can't have them all, those will be on my first order. *grin*

Amidst all that excitement, don't forget that it's Bellariffic Friday! Each Monday Em posts a challenge on the bloggabella, and you have till Thursday evening to email your entry. Then on Friday, she posts all the fabulous cards and projects for all to see. Here's the inspiration piece she posted on Monday:
Isn't that gorgeous! I love that blue...all those colors, really. It was so fresh and clean (reminds me of that song...hehe), so I knew I wanted to create my card with that same feeling. Here's what I came up with:
You like it? It's not very often (ok never) that I make a card using no Chocolate Chip or Black cardstock, so take note! *wink* I cut the circles out with my Nestabilities first, then stamped Daisybella in Memento Tuxedo Black. Before I colored her, I added the Happy Birthday sentiment using my Stampamajig (love that thing). Now, the "birthday" part was over to the right further, so I just cut the sentiment into 2 words and placed each one where I wanted. I colored her with Copic markers, and after I added some Diamond Stickles, I finished off the daisy center with a Goldfish Bauble. The ribbon is actually the Marshamllow ribbon, but I don't see it in stock. I colored it with a green copic marker. But guess what? There's a perfect substitute...Polka Dot Limeade Ribbon! Whodathunk? *grin* A little piercing to the bottom corners of the card finished it off nicely, I think.

To see all the projects that the Bellariffic Babes and participants made this week, check out the Bloggabella. Don't forget to comment...Emily is giving away $50 Bella Bucks to a lucky commenter on her post HERE. So go...comment...have fun...and have a wonderful weekend!
