Bellarific Friday "Free for All"

t-g-i-f

Thank God it's Friday, for a number of reasons! The biggest one is that I am hitting the road with my hubby and my daughter today and going to VIRGINIA where I will be meeting FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME one of my bestest stamping friends EVER! Barbara Anders and I have been online, stamping friends for... omgosh, about 3 years, I think! And WE'VE NEVER MET! Can you believe it!? And FINALLY we're meeting for the first time this weekend! I. CAN'T. WAIT!!! (And yes, all the caps mean I AM EXCITED!) So when you hear screams coming from near the East coast later today, that will be the two of us!

The other reason I am happy that it's Friday is that it's time for another Bellarific Friday challenge with da' Babes! This week is a glorious free-for-all in which we could create anything we wanted using Stamping Bella stamps! So for my card, I decided to use the cute little Arthur here in his fishing gear, since I just picked up this cute Cosmo Cricket "fishy" paper over the weekend in Erie, PA! I just love his lil' towhead hairdo, bagging overalls and big boots! Isn't he the cutest? Arthur is colored with Copic markers on Bella's Bestest White paper, and the layout for my card was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch for this past week.

So take yourself over to Bloggabella and check out all the Bellalicious creations today! Don't forget to leave a comment too, because one lucky commenter will be selected to win some Bella Bucks! And then, get busy creating and play along with us next week because another person who joins in will also win some Bucks! The challenge next week is Mother's Day!

And, if you need something else to do, stop and check out the newly revitalized Forumabella! That's right... we've got our own spot to chat, share ideas, upload creations and everything! Our own Jessabella has been hard at work keeping things organized and active over there and we'd LOVE to see your smiling face! And beginning May 15th we're going to be introducing a Forum Challenge too, that you won't want to miss!

Happy stamping! Thanks for stopping by today!
