Forumbella and Krafty Friday

TGIF!!! woohoo!!
I had my post to go up at midnight last night, but since Blogger had issues as man of you know I did not succeed.
First I would like to mention, in case you don't already know, but Stamping Bella now has a Forum where you can  post you creations, check out the babes galleries, as well as ask questions or just have chats! We are also going to have monthly challenges - first one is to begin May 15th - stay tuned for more info on that.  Remember you must sign up for the forum to see and enter into the challenges.  Here is the link: Forum.

Okay now down to business.  This weeks bellariffic challenge was to use Kraft c/s on your card. Pretty easy eh?  For my card this week I'm using Cuddly Owlies.

I stamped the owls on bella's bestest paper and coloured using prismacolor pencils.  Cut out the image using a circle s/binder die, as well as the red.Sponged some distress stormy sky ink around the image. Next I pulled out my  new heart circle  s/binder die and cut a piece of Kraft c/s.  Distress the edges of the hearts using distress walnut stain.  DP is from Basic Grey - Mellow collection. I stamped the sentiment in black versafine on kraft, then cut it out using  the s/binder ribbon die, sponged some walnut stain while die was in place.
Finished with some red gingham ribbon, stitching and some glossy accents on the hearts.

Next weeks bellariffic friday challenge is a sketch by non other than our very talented Paulabella! Hope you have a chance to play along.  Here is the sketch:

Have a wonderful weekend all!  They are calling for another rainy weekend here (insert sad face).

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very
easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit
more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

Excellent work!
