The winds of change are blowing wild and free...but you ain't seen nothing like me yet...

Happy Friday, everybody! It's Field Day for the kiddos in the Teubner House, and it's already promising to be a fun one. Caleb's teacher sent home a note asking for volunteers to fill water balloons and send them to school on Friday, so we thought "Hey, no big deal, we can do that!" Ok, first of all, there are a BAZILLION MILLION KAJILLION tiny balloons in one teensy weensy bag. They keep growing and multiplying...it's like they'll never end! It started out as a "Dad Job" and ended up as a whole family affair. By the end of the evening, we all had muddy feet and were wet from head to toe. How that happened is beyond me, but it was pretty fun. *grin*

Friday is also one of my favorite days of the week because it's Bellariffic Friday! Each Monday, Emily gives us a challenge, and the cards are revealed on her blog on Fridays. I love seeing how everyone interprets a sketch or inspiration piece. If you haven't played before, we'd love for you to join us!

Anywho, this week we used a sketch created by the fantabulous Nickabella (translated to computer sketch by moi). I really love this one...I think you might see it again!

And here's my interpretation of the sketch:

I had this image of Patricia Birthdaycake in my "already colored" stash. She was stamped in Black Stazon on watercolor paper and then colored with a waterbrush and reinkers. Looking at this pic, it looks like the polka dot paper doesn't match, but I promise, it really does!! The finished card measures 5 1/4" square. I accented the image with some stitching around the edges and a good bit of Diamond Stickles. I did have to use my Stampamajig to place the Fantabulous Day sentiment, but I thought it fit just perfectly! I finished the card off with some lace, a white Prima flower, and a pretty green button threaded with crochet thread.

Well, it's time for me to keep plugging away at my to-do list. 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...you won't be disappointed! Have a wonderful Friday!
