Fuchsias for Lulu

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's edition of non Bellarific Friday ;) I say non because Miss Emily has packed up the store and shipped it off to CHA for the next couple of days so she is a little bit on the insanely busy side of things :) Despite there not being a Bellarific Friday post, I do still have a card to share with you.

For today's card, I used this gorgeous Fuchsias for Lulu stamp by Stamping Bella. I have had this one for awhile but have to admit...I was a little bit intimidated by it because of it's rather large size and because I have seen the some of the other Babes colour it up and didn't think that I could do it justice. I gave it an attempt and have to admit. I'm actually quite impressed with myself :) I love the way it turned out and was even brave enough to used some really bright ribbon on the card too (for those of you who don't already know this...I tend to shy away from purples and hot pink colours). Now, after saying this....the card didn't quite photograph well to get the true hot pinkness of this ribbon!

While Emily is away meeting crafting celebrities and schmoozing in LA, she promised to try to post some of her findings at CHA in all of it's crafty goodness - keep checking back on Bloggabella for some of this sneak peeks and while your there check out the new release and the FREE SHIPPING deets :) Next week we are back with a Valentine's Bellarific Challenge. Any Stamping Bella Stamps put together in Valentine's fashion will do so off you go and start creating! Don't forget to email Emily ( your creation by Thursday so that you can be included in a chance to win some Bella Bucks :D

Thanks for coming by today and TGIF :D
