It's that time again....

....what time you ask? Well, Bellarific Friday of course!! Now you hens do remember what today's theme was right? Oh I know you did, cuz' I bet ALL OF YOU played along too right? Tee-hee! No worries, if you're like me, I know how hectic the Summer months can be but if you have time, we'd LOVE to have you hens play along in our Bellarific Friday challenges. It's super simple to play, just make a card using the theme of the week and a Stamping Bella image, then send your photo by email to Emily at by Thursday evenings and you will be entered into the weekly drawing to win some cool Bella Bucks to use at
How cool is that? Did you know that you can even win Bella Bucks just by leaving a comment on the Bellarific Friday post? Uh-huh, you sure can! But wait, don't run off just yet.... let me tell ya a little bit 'bout my card. Today's Bellarific Friday theme was Bella or Stella. Hmmmmm, this was a no brainer for me cuz' I LOVEEEEEE Stella!!! I made this card for my mom to give to my sis for her birthday comin' up.

I stamped her onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with my Copics. Then I ran her through my printer for the computer generated sentiment and stitched her to some SU Early Expresso. This DP is from an older Cosmo Cricket line "Mr. Campy" but I still love it. I stamped her again on the inside and then finished with a few mini brads and tied a bubbly bow with this pretty red saddle stitched ribbon! Ain't she a cutie??

Now this card is doing double duty this week as part of the Catered Crop FTR 16 challenge too!
Here's this week's recipe:

Colors – red, white, green, and brown
Stamps and Stickers – cake, flowers, mice, strawberries
Patterns – circles, checked/gingham
Color Mediums – markers (ProMarker, Copics)
Embellishments – banners
Tools – border bunches
Techniques – faux stitching, doodling/drawing
Theme – birthday

It's super easy to play along in the Catered Crop "Follow the Recipe" FTR 16 challenge! Alls you need to do is use ANY one of the above the ingredients and link it up over at the Catered Crop website. I've highlighted those ingredients I've used in RED. So you can see just how easy it is to play along. And get this, one lucky hen will get a $25 gift certificate to use at Deadbeat Designs. Woo-hoo!! More FREE stuff!! What hen doesn't LOVEEEE FREEEE stuff? Hmmmmm??? Not this one for sure! Okee dokee, that does for me today! I hope you hens have a FABBY Friday and I'll see ya back in the hen house real soon.

Next week's Bellarific Friday theme is a sketch challenge from our own talented Babe Ebru! Here's her sketch! Wowzers!!! AWESOME Ebru!!!
