Dark and Gloomy Out

Hello bloggers, I hope you're having better weather then us here in Ontario. It is dark and rainy today but one good news is it's going up to 18 degrees. I have tons of chores inside and outside of the house, first of all I need to go to Costco to pick up some handing plants for the back and the front yard. Last week I bought a small Lilac bush and planted that in the back yard, I love the smell of Lilacs and can't wait to see them blossom. My plan is to snip them off as they grow and put them all over my house for colour and scent. I have also planted some Dahlia bulbs for the first time so I am hoping the rabbits won't get to the bulbs.

 To be honest with you, I was never into gardening but I'm really enjoying it now. One sad thing is I do not have a Green thumb and most of the time whatever I plant, dies on me.  Last year I planted Four Cedar pine trees in the back yard and this year we pulled them all out cause they did not survive. I'm thinking maybe it's the drainage, my soil is staying to wet and rotting all the roots. OK, I'm sure you had enough about me rambling on about my gardening experiments and experiences so lets move onto a card shall we.

On Saturday a bunch of us girls went out for dinner to celebrate one of our BF's birthday and this is the card I made for her. She is an Uptown Girl called Posh has a present.  Every time there is a birthday or a celebration, my friends look forward to what card they are going to get from me rather then the present and this makes me so happy cause they really value and treasure my work.

This is a large stamp image therefore you can't play around with design to much cause she pretty much covers most of the card. I stamped her on Bellas bestest White paper and coloured her with Prisma's and Copics. If you look closely at her shoe's I glittered them all up.... hehehe !! LOVE Glittah.

This week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is a Sketch. Don't forget to email your cards to Emily and upload them onto SCS website under the keyword BELLARIFFIC1712.  

Thanks for dropping by !!

Ebru, what a lovely card. Love your colour choice and your layout. Fabulous colouring as well. I love the smell of lilacs too. I think our Japanese maples got hit the other day when we had frost (which I didn't know we were suppose to get)I hope they survive!
