A Bellariffic Friday Card



Yesterday I posted that they were forecasting about a week of rain. This morning Joe turned on the radio to get the news and weather and the weather specialist (what he calls himself) says we are in for a "bank of sunshine for the next four or five days!" What? What happened to the rain that was forecasted? I guess it must have moved south of us because it was indeed a nice sunny day here – very hot and humid but typical for August. I know you can't count on the long range forecast but it doesn't normally change that quickly overnight!

I was busy this afternoon and got another quilt top put together. I had the blocks made but they needed to be finished into the quilt top. Done! Then I pulled out another set of completed blocks and I have them sorted for yet another quilt top. I’m on a quest to reduce the amount of fabric I have! The paper, beading, and scrapbooking embellishment stashes are also being deleted…but much more slowly….mainly because I keep buying more supplies!! Oh well, life is short, may as well do what you enjoy while you are here.

Today’s card is for the weekly challenge at Stamping Bella.



This stamp is just too darn cute. I love it! It was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and then glitter was sprinkled on her dress. It looks nicer in person than the photo shows. The die is a Spellbinders die that I bought on sale at the Paper Pickle. It was one of those sales that were too good to pass on but I wasn’t sure I would use it all that much. Turns out I use it a lot and I’m so glad I bought it. The background papers are from a very old paper set that I won and I just added the bow down the seam.

That’s all for another week. I finished another quilt this week and if I have time over the weekend I’ll post it.

Cheers
Violet
