Thinking of you

Welcome to our first Bellariffic challenge for 2013!
We have lots of exciting challenges this year and today we are starting off with a sketch.  So how this works is every other Friday will be a sketch and the alternate Fridays we will have some kind of challenge whether it be a colour, or theme we will let you know the week before.

So lets get started - this weeks challenge like I mentioned was a sketch, and this is what we had to follow:

On Dec 21, we had a 'thinking of you' challenge, which I couldn't participate in so I decided to make my card today.

I want to dedicate my card to one of our fellow bella babes- Cath.  Cath has been going through some health issues, (you can read her story here), so I'm sending her this card to let her know I'm thinking of her.  Cath if you are reading this - it's in the mail!
Here is Petunia Pixie:

 I started by stamping it on bella's bestest paper and then coloured with copics.  Shading around her was done with prismacolour pencils.
Designer paper is by Prima called Fairy Belle. The pink paper behind the image was a piece I have been hording for a while. I just love the texture of it.  It's a few years old, I believe it was from Hero Arts. Dies used are Spellbinders circle and scallop circle as well as Venetian Accents for the thinking of you tag. The sentiment I used is from Verve. Finished it off with some pearls and stitching.

You can view all the other submissions for this weeks challenge over at Bloggabella.  If you care to leave a comment you have a chance to win some bella bucks.

Our new SCS challenge is also on the go right now, you can read all about it here.

Next weeks challenge is Inspiration #1.  However you interpret it - whether it's the colour or pattern, email your card to Emily by thursday night for a chance to win $20 in bella bucks and also you card will appear on Bloggabella on friday.

 Well that concludes my post for today. Have a great weekend, see you back here real soon.

  4. I have some of that same pretty textured paper, but in neutral colors. In fact I just used it for a card base the other day. Funny to see it on your blog now, after all this time. I got it years ago from Hero Arts. I really love what you've done with the sketch. It's a pretty fun idea and the image is a sweet pick me up for someone who's going through a rough time.

  5. I got it! The card arrived and it's so darn cute! I've never colored this image - I'm a little intimidated by the nest but your card gives me inspiration to give it a try. Thank you for the well wishes...I'm starting to feel better! 16 more weeks to go!!!

  13. If you disregarded the Ugg guidelines and wore your boots
    in water, otherwise you dropped liquid on your own boot, you could have stains along your boots.

    utilization from the preserving stratum within the knock-off may also be a easy preventative pelage - not the real authenticated guy who are able to conflict users; the fabrication is
