Bellariffic Fridays are back

but I'm a little late!!  I woke early today realizing that I forgot to do my post, but it's really cold here (-23 c /- 10F) so I wasn't getting up until the heat had been on awhile!!  Now with a coffee in hand, watching it snow outside (isn't it too cold to snow?!) I'm ready to go!


This weeks theme was a sketch to get us all going again!  For my card I decided to get a Christmas card made for this week and inked up Glideabella is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest cream paper and coloured with caran d'ashe pencils and mineral spirits.  I added some glitter to the edges of the trim.   The ds paper is cosmo cricket mitten weather (which is quite fitting for today!)  I stitched around all the layers and found some ribbon in my stash.

Make sure you stop by Bloggabella today to see the rest of the babes creations & what the sistahs sent in to Em.   Next week's theme is FREE FORM so email Em your cards by Thursday to be included & you could win some bella bucks!!!

Have a fantastic day - I'm staying in & staying warm!!

Perfect card to reflect the weather that's out there.
Once again I am loving the purple tones, simply gorguss. Stay warm and have a great weekend.

Lovely card! The colors come together so nicely and that is some awesome triming you did! Yikes, I would have been scared off but this Snowbunny looks happy as a clam sitting atop all that design paper. I'm casing this!
