Sitting by the fire we made, you're the answer when I prayed...I would find someone, and baby, I found you...

Hiya, Sistahs! Happy Bellariffic Friday! I can't believe that Christmas is less than a week and a half a way...I have so much to do! I am still plugging away at Christmas cards...no two are alike this year, and that makes me very, very happy. I get totally bored if I have to make more than one of the same card! Anyway, this week's Bellariffic Friday is a sketch by Robinabella. It was so fun to create with!


Here's my card, using Izzie has a Prezzie:


Isn't she cute? I tried adding some pleating to her skirt...I love how it looks! And the colors I chose coordinated with this gorgeous paper from Bo Bunny's Sophie Collection...total happy accident. Here's a closeup:


After she was colored, I cut and embossed the image with my Square Nestabilities, sponging the edges and adding a mat with my Lacey Squares Nesties. Then I blinged her up with various regular and Distress Stickles...love those! Then I wrapped the whole thing with a fabulous satin bow. 

So, the Bella Babes are taking a break from Bellarific Friday over the holidays...but we will all still be posting cards on our blogs, so don't forget to come visit us.  We will start challenges again on January 13th.
