Oh boy 'm late!

I am so sorry. I have had my oldest son home sick with strep throat all week, and I had to take the other two to the doc yesterday too. The baby seems to have it too, and although the middle guy does not, there is something going on with him too. I realllly hope he does not get it too.  Anyhooo.... with only a few hours sleep this week, I feel like I am a walking zombie.
Now, moving onto actual blog matters, here's my card for this weeks bellarific Friday challenge.
It was a sketch challenge that I should have put up last week, but forgot to do( sorry) I promise to spend more time figuring out how to do this whole blog thing, don't give up on me yet ;)

Here's the sketch:
And here is my card:)
I have always wanted to do a bulletin board kind of card, so when I saw this sketch I knew this was the one to do it with.  I started by inking up and stamping the polaroid frame stamp and stamped it on to bellas best white cardstock.  Next I stamped it again onto plain copy paper and cut out the middle to create a mask.  I then used my stampamajig to position where I wanted the Uptown girls and stamped them into the center.  I colored them with copics and distressed the frame with antique linen distress ink.  I stamped the sentiment.  Next I cut a piece of kraft cardstock and made a frame, i embossed it with a woodgrain plate and put it over a piece of cork. I attached the polaroid to the cork with a pin and popped the whole piece up onto a polka dot background. 

Next weeks challenge is masculine cards.... So get making some MANLY cards for those guys in your life and come share them with us:)

Well, I have to go and attend to some sick little people, so I'm gonna have to say goodbye, but I will see you tomorrow with another card.  I am hoping to get some crafting time this weekend. Wish me luck! :)
