What a Crazy Week It Has Been

I so badly wanted to post another card this week but just did not have the time to do so.  My card had been finished and all I had to do was post it for all you to enjoy, oh well I guess it will have to wait for next week.  

I should explain why I had such a busy week.  My sweet dear husband went to Cuba last Sunday for a weeks vacation while I stayed back with the kids.  He had been wanting to visit Cuba for quite sometime now and had the opportunity to do so with a bunch of his soccer buddies.  This trip was originally intended for just the two of us but unfortunately with the kids in school and my daughters High School registrations and IB exams I could not go.  Not to mention planning a surprise birthday party for my son's 8th birthday this weekend.  I was running around like a chicken with his head cut off, preparing for the mini surprise party, cleaning the house, dropping the kids off to school, picking them up, preparing our dinners, laundry, homework and the list goes on.  When my husband gets back from his lovely trip, it's my turn to go on one !!

Ok, enough about me venting, let's move onto this weeks Bellariffic Challenge which was a sketch, and here is my card.

I truly missed stamping up a Ketto image, so this week I decided to give some lovin to Agnes Ketto. I wanted her to be citrusy with orange, green and yellow, even though the only yellow are the two things in her hair.  I started off with stamping my image on bellas bestest white paper with Memento Black ink and colouring this weeks image with Copic Markers and some pencil crayons.  To give some dimension to her dress, I added liquid pearls to her skirt and dabbed some extra one's around the image. Once again this week I have forgotten my magic ingredient of glitter :o(

Next weeks challenge is one of my favourite themes and it is to create a Valentine / Love / Pink / Red / White Card. Ohhh I can't wait to see all the Lovely cards next week, and if you are loading it up onto SCS site be sure to use the key word Bellariffic0412.

Well everyone that's it for me for today. Wish me Luck on tomorrows B-day party.  I will try to post some pictures for you guys to see on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting !!

Çalışmalarınıza bayıldım. Ben de elimden geldiğince bu işi yapmaya çalışıyorum. Blogumda scrapbook hobisini tanıtmaya çalışıyorum. Türkiyede bu işi yapan ve bilen çok kişi olmadığından hem tanıtıp hem sevdirmeyi amaçlıyorum. Sizin sitenizi çok beğendim. ellerinize sağlık. Benim de bloguma bakarsanız çok memnun olurum.
