What's Your Favorite Bella Image ?

If you ask me,  I LOVE  them all and choosing just one is truly impossible.  This was the most difficult challenge of all but I had to pick one so I chose Uptown Girls Clarissa and Camille with a cafe.


Here is a little story behind why I picked this particular image as my most favourite.  When Emily first introduced the Uptown Girls back in August, I was blown away with every single one of them but this particular image just struck a cord with me.  One of the most important things I value and treasure in my life (aside from my family) are my friends.  In my experiences, coffee and friendship go hand in hand and they truly are a perfect blend. Best memories are made between friends over a cup of coffee or two, because that's when you talk about anything and everything. There is just something very special about that hot cup of beverage that bring friends together, don't you think so ? 

Let's move onto the details shall we. I stamped this image onto bellas bestest white paper with Memento Black Ink. This time I coloured everything with Caran D'ache pencil crayons and used a Green Metallic Sakura Gelly Roll pen for the centre circles of the cup. To finish off my card I did some sewing around the edges and unfortunately forgot to add glitter for the finishing touch.


Next weeks challenge is another Sketch designed by yours truly and we hope you will join in on the fun.  All you have to do is create a card with this layout using aStamping Bella image of your chose, then you email a photo of your card to Emily by next Thursday 5:00PM EST.  You can also upload your photo on Split Coast Stampers under the keyword Bellariffic0312.

Yup, I think so too! That coffee and friends go hand in hand that is. I can picture you sitting with your cup of Joe catching up with family and friends...I believe you posted a picture at your kitchen table about a year ago and the image stuck with me. It defines you in my mind! Great job matching dp with the ceramic mug. And I love the shading on the teal dress...so gorgeous!
