One Martini, Two Martini, Three Martini....

...FLOOR!! Whew, I'd be PICKLED, let alone hit the floor! Me no drinky! Can't hold my liquor worth a flip! Here's a little story I have to share....

One day, the DH and I went for a ride on the Harley and decided to stop off for lunch. Naturally, it's hotter than blue blazes here in Florida, so I was parched! {Note: We Southerners like to drink!} So I was wantin' some good ol' sweet tea! I LOVE sweet tea {and don't give me none of that, "you can sweeten it with the sugah on the table" stuff! Nuh-uh, that ain't SWEET tea!!} Ok, so I noticed on the menu there was somethin' called Flo's Iced Tea! Hmmmmm? That's sounds interesting, I thought. So, I ordered one and slurped it down in like one swaller! Then the waitress comes back and say's, "want another tea sweetie?" I nod my head eagerly and say, "uh-huh!" So, the second one comes and I slurp down about half and then say to DH, "hey honey, taste this! It tastes sorta funny." So he takes a sip and says, "HOLY $#@!, that's got liquor in it!" And I'm like, "say WHAT?" He says, "I'm gonna have to tie you on the back of the bike with a bungie cord!" Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!! I don't remember the ride home.... *sigh* but I'm still here so it must have worked! LOL!! drunk_smiley.gif Pictures, Images and Photos

Ok-ok, back to the card.... This is Addy "tude" loves her tinis, from Stamping Bella. I stamped her onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with my Copics. I cut her out and adhered her to this embossed circle and added a little sparkle to her tinis and sunglasses with my Gelly Roll pen. This week's Bellarific Friday challenge was a MONOCHROMATIC theme! Definitely a challenge for me, but I do like how this turned out. Hey, did you hens get chance to check out the new release over at Stamping Bella? OMG, my wish list is getting longer and longer...... LOL!

I'm also entering this card into this week's Get Sketchy #81 challenge. Here's the sketch!

Don't forget to stop by Bloggabella and see the rest of the Bella Babes' take on this challenge as well as the sistahood! Those gals are somethin' else!!

Next week's Bellarific Friday theme is a sketch by our own Lindabella!! Ain't it a doosie? I can't wait to get started!! I hope you hens have a FABBY Friday and I'll see ya back in the hen house bright n' early tomorrow mornin'!! {{{hen hugs}}}
