If mamma ain't happy...



There's a new Naughty or Nice challenge starting today and the theme is For The Ladies.  Here's my DT card for one of my good friends...





I don't know which good friend to give it to yet though - they all love wine and will all love that sentiment!  I used Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Opal the Optimist with the sentiment is from a There She Goes set (no longer available, sorry!), finished off with some sequins for some sparkle!

Check out more naughty or nice inspiration over at the blog here - hope you can join us this month!

Onesie love!

It's Bellarific Friday and this week we had a sketch to follow so here is my Bellarific Babe card take on it...





This is Uptown Girl Brynn and Her Baby Shower and I used Echo Park Bundle of Joy papers and a Sizzix heart embossing folder.  I think I went a bit over the top with the shading - went a bit too heavy handed with the pen!

The next Bellarific Friday is to be inspired by the photo below...

It's Bellarific Friday!  And Em has also decided to release the new Stamping Bella stamps today too so no more waiting to get your hands on these gorgeous goodies in the store later today!   So I decided to combine my DT make today with one of the newbies and this week's Bellarific Friday theme to use ribbon or washi tape...



Some of you may be thinking "hang on, I've seen this before!".  Well you'd be right and you'd be wrong, lol!  I used the wrong image so have now used the correct image plus I added a ribbon!  I also used BasicGrey papers and My Favorite Things rolled flower die.

So, check out the rest of the gorgeous DT inspiration over at Bloggabella.  The next Bellarific Friday is this sketch...

A glamorous Stamping Bella sneak peek!

Did you see that Stamping Bella has a new release out on 24 February?  It's a huge one - they are full of cuteness, glamour and fun!  Check out the sneak peeks over at Bloggabella.  Today I am snowing you a sneak peek filled with glamour - meet Marcelle Masquerade...



Somebody make me that dress!!  So beautiful - perfect for one of my glamorous city girlfriends!  I matched her up with Eiffel Tower patterned papers from the Carta Bella Paris Girl collection, generously sprinkled with Glamour Dust and topped off with a silver bow.  Here's a closer look at the bling...



Oh la la!  Now just to get my husband to take me somewhere suitable to wear it!  I bet you can't wait to get your hands on this baby - only a week to wait now!

Come sunshine or rain....

Well I wish we had some sunshine but we're still putting up with a ton of rain!  So for my Bellarific Friday DT make today, I thought I'd make this card using the sketch we had for inspiration...



Of course, I had to use Uptown Girl Lolly and her Brolly - nothing more appropriate for the UK at the moment!  I used Bo Bunny papers and coloured in some white Doodlebug flower paper trim with my Copics to match the yellow in her raincoat.  The sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley Scroll Sentiments set.  You can't see it very well from the photo but I used Stickles glitter glue on her clothes trim.

Okay, the next challenge is to use washi tape or ribbon so get your creations to Em by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!

Enjoy the rain!

Hey all!  It's Bellarific Friday and this week we had a sketch to follow.  Here is my DT make...




This is Lolly and her Brolly - another brilliant Uptown Girl!  I thought it only appropriate to make a card with a rain theme as that is all we seem to be getting here in the UK!  But I also wanted it to be cheery card so I used Doodlebug papers and some sweet daisies.

Okay, the next theme is to get inspired by this photo...

Bellarific Friday is here!

It's  Bellarific Friday and this week we had the theme of "friends".  Here is my take on it...



I used the beautiful Uptown Girl Pippa Loves to Plant.  This stamp has definitely NOT been made for me - I hate gardening!  But many of my family members and friends do so it always comes in handy.

So next week we have a sketch to follow so send your creations to Em by next Thursday.  Check out all the deets over at the blog here.



I'm off but I'll be back soon with my Lili of the Valley DT post - ttfn!

Party time!

(Please scroll down for my Lili of the Valley blog hop post!)

It's Bellarific Friday this week's theme was to be inspired by a photo so here is my take on it...




I was inspired by the pink, red, circles and party theme so I just had to make a birthday card!  I used Uptown Girl's Victoria and Juliette's Night Out matched up with some Echo Park papers.  It makes me wanna have a glass of wine, but best not as it's only the morning still!

The next Bellarific Friday theme is to be inspired by this sketch...


Send your creations to Em by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.  Check out all the deets over at the blog here.  Have a lovely day and I'll see you again soon!

What day is it? It's Bellarific Friday, of course!!

It's been another mega busy week for me at work and the bad weather we had on Monday did not help!  Apologies again for not visiting you all much at your blogs - it's easier for me track my FB friends on my iPhone but I promise to visit your blogs soon!

Anyhoo, here is my Bellarific Babe card for this week and we had a sketch to follow...



I couldn't help but use classy Uptown Girl Audrey Loves Her Makeup again - she's so perfect for my work colleagues.  I matched her up with Glitz Design papers and a pretty daisy using MFT dies.

And now for some exciting news!  Starting from 1 January 2014 we will be featuring a Guest Designer each month on the blog.  To play along with us and perhaps become a guest designer, you must participate in our Bellarific Friday challenges with a watermark of your blog on your card.  By Being a babe for the month, you will receive a gift certificate from us... plus the possible opportunity of being a full time baberooni!

Okay, so the next Bellarific Friday challenge is to use two stamps.  Send your creations to Em by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!

Chow!

Hi everyone, just popping in to show my Bellarific Babe card using the new Uptown Girl Chanel The Chef...



She is so much fun and I love the spoons in her apron - such a great touch!  I matched her up with My Minds Eye papers and Stampin' Up embossing folder.  The lettering is by Echo Park mounted on foam pads for a bit of depth.

The weather is so awful here in the UK - wet, grey, miserable!  I hate it!  Thank goodness I am having some fun planning our Australian trip in December!

Thanks for visiting and I'll be back soon with my Doodlicious Diva and There She Goes DT posts - toodle-oo for now!

Did you hear the news?

What horrible weather we had today!  And we had to drive nearly 4 hours on the motorway on it - a bit scary!  Glad we are now snug and warm at home with a bottle of wine chilling as I *speak*!  I hope the weather is better where you are!

Anyhoo, here I am with my Bellarific Babe card...



I can't stop using this Uptown Girl!  This is classy Audrey Loves Her Makeup.  I matched her up with My Minds Eye papers, my Darice embossing folder and My Favorite Things skyline die.

I'm off to finish my weekend - see you soon!

Lollipop love

It's Friday which means it's Bellarific Friday and this week we had the theme of stitching.  Here is my take on it with some simple stitching on the ribbon...



This Uptown Girl is so sweet and aptly named Claudia Has a Candy.  I used My Minds Eye papers (can't remember name as they were just little pieces left in my stash!) and my Stampin' Up embossing folder.

The next Bellarific Friday is this sketch...

Getting married

I'm here today with my Bellarific Babe card using Uptown Couple Brett and Brenda Get Married...



I wanted to keep this card as simple and fresh as possible - that gorgeous couple don't need anything else!  I used a Sizzix embossing folder and a touch of ribbon with lots of Stickles glitter glue on her shoes and dress trim.

I'm sorry I've been such a bad blogger recently.  I really want to visit you all but work and DT commitments are keeping me very very busy!  I hope to be back on course soon (famous last words!).

Limit yourself!

YAY!  OMG, thank goodness it is Friday because it has been a horrible week at work!  It's also Bellarific Friday and this week the theme was monochromatic - limit yourself to one colour!  Here is my simple take on it...


 
I feel a bit of a cheat - it only took me 20 minutes to make this card and 10 minutes of that was colouring in!  But my next Bellarific Babe card that I'll show this weekend has taken me A LOT longer! 

So the next Bellarific Friday is this sketch...



Send your creations to Em by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!  I'll be back later with my There She Goes new release post and it's a very different style for me!  ttfn!
