Be Happy!

Be happy! Its FRIDAY! And if you're in the US then may I wish you a Happy Memorial Day weekend!!!

We've got a parade, soccer, baseball, swim lessons, and I fully plan on making a big old pitcher of sangria and enjoying dinner outside this weekend! 

In my most recent order from Stamping Bella, I went a little Turtle Crazy! I bought a whole bunch, but awww they're so cute!

This is my Bellariffic Challenge card for this week.  What a fantastic sketch!! This card is totally not mailable because it has a kajillion layers, but it was so fun to work on! I used my Nana's Nursery patterned paper from DCWV that has been sitting around feeling neglected! Don't forget to visit Blogabella today to see all the samples from Emily, the Babes (see my sidebar) and all of the loyal customers that send in samples each week.  One lucky participant, and one of you in the peanut gallery will win some Bella bucks.  

For this little cheering turtle, I stamped her pom poms a second time onto scrap, cut them out and picked and pulled at them to give them lots of dimension.  I thought I'd pair it with this fun sentiment that was also in my order. I can see using this one a lot, and even after all this time, thinking of that song still makes me smile!

And then, as long as I was playing, I wanted to stamp this sweet little Turtle with Teddy.  He just melts my heart.  I kept the layout super super clean, because I loved this patterned paper.  Black accents, machine stitching and a quick bow of black grosgrain ribbon. 

Don't forget when you use a dark color like black for your cardbase, to add a quick liner to your card! You *can* just write with a white gel pen, but personally, I never get even results and then your card is a mess after you spent all this time making it!  So for me, dark card base means just take a few seconds to make a liner!!

Have a truly WONDERFUL weekend!
