Got a candle need to blow that crazy flame away...take my red, black card and my jewelery...

Happy Friday, y'all!! How has your week been? Mine has been good, but busy! The boys had a great first week of school. Cole came home on Tuesday and said, "Mom, first grade is TORTURE! My teacher keeps bossing me around and telling me what to do!" *giggle* That kid cracks me up.

Anyway, y'all know by now that it's Bellariffic Friday! This week our sketch was by our new babe Meahnibella, and it was a toughie for me.


Those panels on the side really threw me for a loop. But I tried it, and here's what I came up with.


I used Henrietta Lulu...is she not the cutest thing evah? I stamped her in Memento Black ink on Bella's Bestest Paper, then colored her with Copic markers. Then I cut and embossed the image and a black mat with my Nestabilities Labels Four dies. For the background panels, I chose this cute little cherry print from my Basic Grey Lemonade 6x6 pad. Then I added some sheer black ribbon on the sides for the three side panels. I then stamped the "awwww SHUCKS" sentiment (that comes with Henrietta) on a scrap of white paper and cut it out, then added some Prima flowers and a black button tied with twine. To finish off my card, I added some Diamond Stickles to the image...sparkly and fun!

Well, that's about all she wrote today...don't forget to check out Emily's blog for all the eye candy from the Babes and the Sistahood using this sketch, and comment there for a chance to win some Bella Bucks! WHICH, by the way, have you noticed the new shipping policy? Here's a blurb from Emily's blog:
