There for me

     Things have just been in chaos lately and I really don't do well when my regular routine is thrown off.  It was a bright spot of sunshine to be able to sit down and color up this little Woodsie from Stamping Bella.  I got almost all of the new Woodsie collection when it was released at the beginning of the month.  I just fell head over heels for the little characters in this series.  This particular one is called "Especially for you, Petunia".  I have to admit that Petunia is a fave character from the collection.
     Last week's challenge was this sketch:

     I did a little coloring experimentation with this one and used just a touch of W1 and BV31 for shadows on Petunia.  I need to work a bit on blending it out.  This photo is closer to the pink that Petunia is on my card.

Copics Used:
pig E00, E01, E02, W1, BV31, R20, R22, R30
flower R20, R22, R24, YG03, YG93, YG95
chick Y11, Y21, YR23
grass G82, G94, G99

     Here's the sweet sentiment that comes with the stamp.

     Hope this Bellarific Friday card made you smile.  We'd love to have you play along with next weeks challenge.  The theme is to "use washi tape or ribbon".  All you have to do is use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements.  Get you project photographed and emailed to Em at (emily at stampingbella dot com) with Bellarific Friday challenge and the date of the challenge in the subject line by Thursday evening.  Em offers a $25.00 Bella Bucks prize to one lucky winner every month.
     You can find all the wonderful DT creations as well as those who participated in the sketch challenge over at Blogabella.  If you want to grab our stamp of the month, "Wanda" at 20% off better make it quick.  February is almost gone.
     Have a fabulous and blessed Friday!
