Bellariffic Friday

What a gorgeous day! Such a change from yesterday when we had a very cool breeze blowing and sweatshirts and jackets were necessary. Today - hot! How hot? T-shirts and shorts hot!

No birding today. Joe cut the grass and I played in the garden. Hard to do as much as I wanted without using the right arm - tennis elbow still acting up - but I did get quite a bit done. I've stayed away from the greenhouses so far but hubby mentioned yesterday that we should get the annuals soon. I had to laugh because when we got married he didn't know a tulip from a daffodil and now he knows annuals from perennials? Funny. He never used to come with me to the greenhouses for flowers until he retired - (and six weeks later I got hit with the dreaded brain disorders) - so the first thing he says to me at the greenhouse is "What's your budget?" Budget? For flowers? I had to think quick and it wasn't quick enough - "It varies." I said. He just gave me "the look" and I shrugged. I still don't have a budget - for flowers or crafting/art supplies. I just tell him "it varies" and now he just shakes his head and lets it drop. Smart man.

So, now on to the card. This week's challenge at Stampin' Bella was to make a card with stitching on it. OK, that's an easy one. She forgot to post my card on her blog again, but I have resent it to her.  Here it is.

Instead of just putting stitching on it I used a Stampin' Bella stamp that fit right in with the theme of the week. This one was stamped on water colour paper and coloured with water colour pencils, of course. The other paper is all from Cosmo Cricket - Social Club - 6" pack picked up from the Paper Pickle - my new tongue twister! Try saying that 5 times real fast.
