And I won't be far from where you are if ever you should call...

Hey y'all, Happy Thursday! Is it me or has this week totally FLOWN by? I guess it's cause I have so much to do...*grin* It is getting to be the end of school (next week, to be exact), and there are so many activities and programs and events...it's hard for a mom to keep up! Tomorrow is Field Day, and there will be water balloons...fun stuff!

Anyway, I have a couple of cards I haven't shown you yet, so I thought I'd leave you with some eye candy for today.
This card features the Lottie and Gussie Gabalot stamp from the Chichiboulie line at Stamping Bella. I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White cardstock, then colored them with Copic Markers. The sentiment, Hello dear friend, is one of my very favorites, and of course I couldn't resist using some Light Cocoa Glitter Dots.

The next card is even cleaner and simpler than the first...thank heaven for these cards sometimes!

Don't get me wrong, I love to sit and spend hours getting a card "just right," but these days there just isn't time for that every day. That's when cards with the Clean & Simple layouts and few layers are lifesavers. I still make something cute, it just didn't take a bazillion hours! *grin*

This card features Cosmobella, who is probably my favorite Bella if I had to choose. She was stamped in Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copics. I used the Swiss Dots embossing Folder, a sentiment from Billboardabella's Words, and three Goldfish Baubles. Simple and fun!

Ok, sistahs, I gotta run...don't forget, you still have time to play in the Bellariffic Friday challenge this week. You can see the sketch and details HERE. Also, check out the cool news HERE...wayyy cool! I can't wait to get mine and play!

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous Thursday!
