Jilted-Bella and Her (Ex-)Fella

If you have never heard of Allison, at Stampin When I Can, then you must stamp under a rock. She has a great, resourceful blog and has been issuing weekly theme challenges. Thinking outside the norm this week, she challenged readers to create a card for a girlfriend who has just been jilted by her beau. Here's my rendition:
I used Bellas, Emmybella and Beerafella, colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. The sentiment on Emmybella is from Verve, All About You. The sentiment under him is freehand with a white gel pen. Funny, is there a stamp out there that says that? Unless you are one of the lucky owners of the Snap Stamps that were discontinued and make it yourself?

That's about it for today. Another long day at work today - I had a new employee start today and spent most of the day showing her around and starting to train her. And DS had a reaction to his sunscreen this morning, so I got a call from daycare. Luckily, Benadryl stopped his itching, but I don't get it because we have used that sunscreen brand before with no problems. To make it worse, they didn't even play outside because it was too hot!

Ahh, but my Verve order came today. I LOVE to shop Verve because she has great designs, the best sentiments, and I can order Friday and have the goodies in my mailbox Monday. Now that's fast service! Thanks to Julee, who even processed orders on her birthday!

I'm off to bed now. I just wanted to get this one challenge completed so that I could have some creative time today. Have a good one, everyone. Thanks for looking!
