A Bellariffic sketch challenge

Hi everyone! Can you believe that it is friday already? Where do the days go? and the weekends seem to go just as fast!  I think winter is starting to arrive :(.  On my way home last night I drove through a mini blizzard - only lasted for a few minutes - but the air has really turned cold and the winds just whipping those snow flakes around.  I'm so not ready for winter to arrive - I would be content with Spring and Fall weather all year round! Okay enough complaining about the weather, it is what it is!

For this week's challenge we had a sketch to follow.  It was a great one at that - thanks to Ebru! I thought I would change things up a bit and give you a change of scenery so instead of a Christmas image I'm using one of the new green bean baby images called Jamie. I love these gbb images, and I bought them all so you will be seeing more of them!

As always, I stamped and coloured her on bella's bestest paper.  She was coloured with Copics and I did some shading and the grass with prismacolour pencils.  Don't you just love her hair???? It was my third attempt at her hair and this one turned out to be my fav! She is so adorable! My papers are from MME - Life of a party.  I used a sizzix dot embossing folder on the green c/s to give it some texture. I also added some tiny polka dots to her bows in her hair - so cute! Finished her off with some brown seam binding ribbon.

Don't forget to hop over to Bloggabella to check out everyones cards this week, I'm sure they will WOW you!  Leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Also, Paulabella is giving away some of her favourite rubber in celebration of her birthday.  All you have to do is play along in two challenges - today's and next weeks challenge. If you play along both weeks you get two chances to win, or if you only play along one week you get one chance.  You can read all about it here.

Which brings me to next weeks challenge - it is FREE FORM - so any image (Bella that is ) , any layout, anything your heart desires - it's your choice! 

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great weekend!
