Thinking of you

     It's Bellarific Friday Peeps!  Our first challenge for 2015 started off a bit different.  It was an "Anything Goes" challenge, but it was also a spotlight challenge for the DT. Emily will be having a STAMP OF THE MONTH every month where we offer that one stamp for 20% off retail price!  This month it's the adorable Gracie.  The stamp will be featured on the first Bellarific Friday post of each month at Blogabella and the whole DT will share their inspiration.  We have some other fun stuff planned, plus a new release that is going to make you swoon, so be on the look out.
     We also welcome a brand new Bellababe to the Stamping Bella family, Kerri Boucher.  Welcome Kerri!!!

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R22, R30

     Next weeks challenge is a sketch.

     To play along just create something using the challenge requirements and a current in store Stamping Bella image.  Take a clear picture of your card and email it to Em (emily at stampingbella dot com) by the Thursday evening before the challenge is due.  In the subject line of your email, please put the “bellarific Friday challenge” and the date of the challenge.  Easy and fun plus you go into the monthly draw for a $25.00 Bellabucks gift voucher.
     Hope you all have a terrific weekend.  I have tons of coloring to do,
     Be blessed!
