Feeling Grumpy

Happy Friday!  I have to say I've been a total slacker when it comes to stamping - it's the nice weather & the golfing & the golf lessons & whatever other excuse I can come up with!  The lack of mojo isn't helping so don't be surprised if things are a little sporadic over the next little while!!

This weeks Bellariffic Fridays challenge was to use Bella or Stella which was fun because Bella is where it all started for me!  I remember a bunch of us ordering the stamps in Toronto before the store was even open!  I went back through my bindah and decided to go with one of the original for me - Grumpabella.  I like to say I not grumpy in the mornings, as long as I am left on my own for the first little while!  On weekends hubby gets up and wants to get going or get the day planned before I've had my coffee; then I am Grumpabella!!

The image is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper & coloured with copics.  I paper pieced her robe 2x with cosmo crickets early bird paper (how perfect is that early bird with grumpy mornings?!)  I used one of the fabulous sketches from the Dare to get Dirty challenges over on SCS (DTGD10rainy) for my layout - if you haven't had a chance pop by and see all the great challenges!

Don't forget to stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes creations with Bella or Stella & what the Sistah have done!  Remember to leave Em a comment for a chance to win Bellabucks!!

Next weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge is Christmas in July - it's a perfect chance to get a jump start on your holiday cards!  Email Em your cards by Thursday to be included on Friday.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!!


copics: E0000, E00, E21, R20, E47, E49, BG72, R24, R27
