It's Bellarific Friday...On a Sunday!

Good morning! I was so excited when I went to Blogabella and saw that Em was delaying Bellarific Friday! Yay, I had time to whip something up! Fortunately I found this card in my "to be finished later" bin...the image was colored, all the layers were cut, and all I had to do was add adhesive and embellish.... What could be easier than that?

The image is colored with my trusty Crayolas, the gold panel was run through the Cuttlebug, and I added a snippet of ribbon with a football brad. I wish all cards were completed so quickly; I will have to visit my "to be finished later" bin more often!

Image: Stamping Bella
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and True Black, SU! Summer Sun
Embellies: Wrights Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Eyelet Outlet Football Brad
Extras: Crayola Colored Pencils, EK Success 3D Dots

The theme for Bellarific Friday this week was "Back to School". For me, this cheerleader image was perfect...back to school meant getting out my rockets and pom poms.... Back to school meant football cheerleading; I was also a basketball cheerleader, but there was nothing quite as exciting as the football season. The crisp, fall air; the excitement of a winning season. Back in the day, our school was a football powerhouse. We had so much fun! We had a great coach; we did lots of fun stunts, games and skits at our weekly pep rallys. For the home games we would paint a run through for the team and we would take turns hosting the other cheerleaders, on the squad, for supper before the game. We would work hours to perfect a dance routine that was presented at the Homecoming pep rally. We would also get corsages from the team for Homecoming; they were HUGE spider mums with ribbons dangling with football charms.... Yes, they were ugly! LOL We also had a "football buddy" and we would decorate their locker and leave them treats inside.... Yes, we would also sneak treats for ourselves too! LOL Anyway, this walk down memory lane was fun for me; those were good times!

I would love to hear what you remember about back to school...please share!

Great card Angela. Love the clean crisp yellow, black and white combo. The embossing looks great and the football brad is the perfect embellie! I love fall and football games, but was never a cheerleader myself (not coordinated enough!).
