Smiley from millan.net Smiley from millan.net Smiley from millan.net Smiley from millan.net

Well?????????????? Have you guessed the Belli Challenge for this week????????? WHEELS!!!!!!!!! I believe Chrissy actually intended Stamp Wheels to be the challenge/inspiration.......but many of us didn't have any! So we were allowed to be creative and use ANY kind of wheels!!!!! So bust out the Stamp Wheels if you have 'em, but if not...........no prob........stamp a vehicle, make a wheel out of punchies, heck......ink up that hamster wheel and make some home-made dp!!!! ROFL!!

  • Stamps: Whatever Floats Your Boat
  • Paper: Pure Luxury White, BG Marrakech
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Copics: R05, R11, E57, E77, YG63, G94
  • Accessories: Brads, Ribbon, Clip

So I just HAD to ink this precious Gina K. stamp set up!!! It's Rupa's Whatever Floats Your Boat!!! Can you believe I hadn't played with it yet???? SHUCKS!!! I couldn't let another second go by!!!! And besides..........isn't this lil turtle THE cutest on that skateboard????!!!! I couldn't resist Stickling him up just a bit!!!! ;) And the Basic Grey Cupcake Brads match the new Basic Grey Marrakech dsp I got at Limelight perfectly!!!! I LOVE this new dsp!!! But that's no surprise certainly!!! LOL

Now you can check out all the deets and the super talented Belli Girls DT on the Belli Challenge Blog!!! Be sure to play along and link up your creation there!!!!

  • Stamps: A Charmed Life
  • Paper: Pure Luxury White, Black Market Paradise dsp
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ruby Red
  • Accessories: Ribbons, Pearls, Crystal Effects

Ohhhhh I just **had** to immediately cut out Mel's new set, A Charmed Life!!!! Oh my HECK what a fun and adorable set!!!! CHARMS!!!! Seriously.........billions and billions of charms!!!! Okay, slight exaggeration maybe!! LOL The Black Market Paradise dsp is soooo perfect for a glass of "Tickled Pink"!!!! Both Melanie and Cat shared that information with me.........I did goof just a tiny on the sponging above the glass......I sponged the wine color since I wanted a more bubbly, effervescent feel to the liquid in the wine glass. And the Rose Pearls match perfectly!!!! I LOVE my Limelight Pearls as you all know!!!! LOL I'll let you in on my secret.............I always color and embellish my images AFTER I adhere them to the card!! I've smudged and ruined too many hours of work before and have learned that lesson!!! I made this card for one of the challenges on Gina's StampTV..........come check us out!!!! Step-by-step video tutorials, forums, challenges with Gina K. stamps as prizes........it's a blast!!!

I hope you all have a truly Wonderful Wednesday!!!!
~ Have A Creative Day! ~
