Good books

     It's the first Bellarific Friday challenge of the month and that means it's time for the team to showcase the new Stamp of the Month.  Uptown Girl Betty Loves Books will be on sale all this month for 20% off.  LOL  I just realized that I got so caught up in creating my card with Betty that I forgot to use last weeks challenge theme which was Buttons, bows or sequins.  You can just pretend there are some of those on my card.  hee hee  I recently got some of Bella's Bestest paper from Stamping Bella and I used it for my image on this card.  It blends my Copics great!

     I didn't list my Copics since I used a ton.
     Don't forget that all the new stamps from the upcoming release are being sneaky peeked so make sure you check out Blogabella daily.
     Next weeks challenge is a sketch.

     To play along just use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements.  Get your 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.
     Be blessed!

And how refreshing that she's holding the real deal and not an e-reader. There's just something lost in digital format; at least for me. I love this image and that sentiment is wonderful. Beautiful card my friend. :)
