Bellarific Chillin'

Happy Bellarific Friday! This week's challenge theme was Here Comes Summer, and let me tell you, I'm SO ready for sumer!

I decided to use the Turtle Tots-Summer Girls image from Stamping Bella...they're just too cute for words! But I really only wanted the one with the ice cream cone so she's the only one I inked up...presto...a single image with three turtles now becomes three individual images! Love it when I can get more mileage from an image.

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured with copics. I cut her out with Netabilities and stitched her to the pink layer. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary which I layered onto intense kiwi. And yes, I still have plenty of this paper left...I don't ever think I'll use it all up. Actually, I can not recall ever using up all of one patterned paper because there's always something new I want to dig into. But I'm still not tired of this one.  :)

The layout is the current Sweet Stop Sketch, SSS58, although I didn't add quite as many flowers as the sketch called for. Chill Out seemed like the perfect sentiment to go along with my bikini clad, ice cream eating turtle and I finished the card with oyster baubles in the corners.

Be sure to hop over to Bloggabella to see this week's round-up and leave some love while you're there for a chance to win Bella Bucks. We're taking a 2 week break from Bellarific Fridays because Em is travelling to England. So the next challenge is a sketch by Jodi and it's not due until June 25th, which give you plenty of time to play along. 


Don't forget Em released several fun new images this past Monday. Be sure to head over to Stamping Bella to see everything...click this link for the new images. Take advantage of 10% off everything you order, use junerelease10 at checkout, but hurry before the sale ends!

Thanks for stopping by!
