Bellarific Friday Challenge June 12th, 2009

Today was the final day for the Stamping Bella Challenge. I have had a very busy and discouraging week that included a Harvey's Hamburger dripping oil all over my blouse while I was out running errands, to locking my keys in my car, and being locked out with oil all down my blouse. Then having to wait 1 1/2 hours for my dedicated 17 year old to finish an in class assignment before he could drive the 20 mins to unlock me. The other discouraging part, if you're my husband, was that I locked myself out of the van outside Home Sense. What a gold mine. Luckily I had my cell phone to keep intouch with my fellow scrapbooker in crime Christine from dolcreations, and my credit card. Well Christine has had enjoyment in pointing out that I could have called a towtruck for $50.00, however my 1 1/2 visit to Home Sense rendered me $190.00 in the red. (Hubby thinks I got some pretty good deals). I now have birdhouses, birdcages, candles and lots of other good stuff for my gardens. LOL. So in finalizing this wonderful story I have been behind all week, and have not had time to do my Bellarific Friday card. Then today I received an e-mail from Two Scrapbook Friends in Waterloo that inspired me to finish my Bellarific Card. Right to the wire I got it in at 4:59 pm for the cutoff time of 5:00 pm. Here is my inspiration from Two Scrapbook Friends:




Here is my card:




I'm sure the weekend will be better as it has already started for me.
