Crazy laughter in another room...and she drove herself to madness with a silver spoon...

Happy Friday, y'all! How was your week? Mine was great! I'm excited to be headed to Waco tonight...my sister and I will get to have dinner and hang out tonight, and then class tomorrow. I'm so looking forward to it!

Anywho, I can't believe it's already time for another Bellariffic Friday, can you? This week's challenge was to create a Fall or Halloween card. Turns out, I only have one Halloween stamp from Bella, so I didn't have to waste too much time trying to decide on an image. I think I need to remedy that, don't you? Also, we're welcoming a new Bella Babe to our crazy bunch. Say hi to Jeanie Witmer! You will love her stuff, so go check it out and say hi, k?

Ok, enough blabbing, here's my card:



This card was so easy to make. I spent more time coloring than anything else! But what else is new...anyway, I stamped Little Witchy in Brilliance Graphite Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper, then colored her with Prismacolor pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits. Then I cut and embossed the image and a black scalloped mat with Oval Nestabilities.

Next I decided to create a patterned paper using the Spoooooky sentiment, so I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock and stamped the word repeatedly in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used my Stampamajig to line them all up just right, and then I swiped the ink pad along the edges to make them stand out against the white card base. I adhered it to the card base on an angle. Then I cut a 2" strip of Orange Citrus Double Dot paper from Bo Bunny and punched the edge with the EK Success Dotted Scallop edger punch. I adhered that across the bottom part of my card, then tied a piece of 5/8" black twill ribbon around the top edge of the layer. Finally, I popped the main image up on pop dots to give the card a bit of dimension.

Well, that's about it for me today! To see some more eye candy for this week's challenge, visit Emily's Blog later today. And don't forget to comment on her post for a chance to win some Bella Bucks, k? I hope you have a wonderful weekend...thanks for coming by to see me!
