Missing you always...

TGIF everybody!

Some of the first rubber character stamps that I purchased way back when I got started with Copics where from Stamping Bella. I love the Ketto collection they used to have and I own nearly all of them I'm sure. But it has been a while since I've added new stamps to my Stamping Bella binder... until now. Their newest release of Tiny Townies swept me off my feet and also had me taking a second look at a few older Uptown Girl images as well. Jayden Loves to Journal is one of the stamps that recently fell into my shopping cart and while I adore the stamp as-is, I also saw her just dreaming the day away perfect for a 'missing you' type card. So I wiped the pen out of her hand and the journal off the table before stamping Jayden onto the cardstock, leaving her alone with her thoughts and a cup of tea. The flowers on her shirt had me pulling this new paper from the October Afternoon Summertime collection, I mean come on... talk about a perfect match, LOL!
And because I finally have some new stamps to play with I can enter this card into the Bellarific Friday challenge today, yeah! I followed sketch 13 that was posted last week and stayed pretty true to the original design. Hopefully this is the first of many that I get a chance to play in. :)

Alrighty, wishing a fun and fabulous 4th of July weekend to my fellow stateside stampers. Stay safe and enjoy lots of Bar-B-Que!  ;)
