Bellarific Bedbugg

Happy Bellarific Friday!!! This week's challenge was Huggabuggs...those sweet little creatures...they just fluttered their way right into my heart when they were first released and I'm happy to report that they still make me smile each time I use one!!!

For my card today I pulled out Bedbugg and stamped her (I'm saying she's female because I don't think any boy in their right mind would voluntarily wear pink and purple jammies.) with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper. Then I coloured her with copics and added plenty of sparkly with three Spica glitter pens. Have I told you lately how much I adore my Spica pens? It's a gorgeous, somewhat subdued sparkle with absolute no mess to clean up!

I pulled the fun colour palette from my Basic Grey Green at Heart 6x6 paper pack and I finally broke into the coordinating paper ribbon that I've been hoarding since March (and I know it was March because I picked it up when I was visiting my Dana in Calgary). It's self-adhesive and so easy to use...now I'm kicking myself for not using it sooner. I added a little texture and pattern with my seeing spots Cuttlebug folder, which is meant to mimic the polka dots on the comforter. I finished it with some stitching and two Bonbons. The layout is FTL94 from the Clean & Simple blog.

Next week's Bellarific Friday challenge is a sketch, by 'lil ole' me, so I hope you like it. I'd love to see how you interpret the sketch so please play along. Simply create a card using Stamping Bella images and  the sketch, then email a picture of your creation to Em by next Thursday to be included in the Friday round-up.

Don't forget to pop over to Bloggabella to see this week's round-up and leave some love while you're there because you just might win Bella Bucks!

Thanks for stopping by!
