I know a place where no one's lost, I know a place where no one cries...crying at all is not allowed, not in my castle on a cloud...

Hey you guys, Happy Friday! Whew, what a week this has been!! I don't know about y'all, but here we are gearing up for the end of school, which means lots of field trips! This week alone we have been to the zoo, a ropes course, and to the dugout at Ranger Stadium. I'm pooped, and I didn't even go! *grin*

Well, hopefully by now you know what Friday brings...Bellariffic Friday! This week, I made a sketch of one of Nickabella's creations, and here's how it turned out:

Is that a cool sketch or what? Nicky is a genius, I tell you. Here's my finished card:

This week I chose Altee 'Tude...what fun she is to color!! I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black on Prism Simply Smooth Ivory, and colored her with Copic Markers. Then I cut and embossed the image with my Rectangle Nestabilities, added a Suede Brown Dark mat, and a scalloped rectangle from Intense Pink. I accented the 9 and the flower on her hat with some Diamond Stickles, then set the image aside to dry.

Moving on to my card base, I stitched a 5" square of Suede Brown Light to a mat of Suede Brown Dark. I chose Wild Wasabi from SU to match her hat for the strip across the card, and punched it with my Martha Stewart edge punch. It didn't stand out the way I'd hoped, so I layered it onto a strip of Ivory. Then I cut the large panel from Suede Brown Dark and stitched it onto the card base with a zig-zag stitch. The circle was cut from Barely Banana cardstock (SU) with my Nestabilities and layered onto the card. I stamped the Oh, Happy Day sentiment (LOVE this one!!) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a strip of Ivory cardstock. The "v" cut out of the end was done with a square punch...this idea was brought to you buy my genius friend Charmaine! Brilliant!! The image is popped up on dimensionals, and I added three Light Cocoa Glitter Dots to finish off the card. Love those glitter dots!!

Well, that's about it for me today. I hope you enjoyed my card...thanks for stopping by to see me today! Don't forget to check out Emily's Blog for creations from the rest of the Babes and the Sistahood...lots of eye candy for sure! Have a wonderful Friday!
