Bellarific Friday sum sUM SUMMERTIME!

Good morning friends! It's Friday, and I have a long weekend off from work! Me and Jimmy are heading up to do some R & R at a friend's lake cabin. Fishing, blueberry picking, and maybe some shooting lessons for me (maybe). I need a little rest and relaxation, so this can't come a moment too soon. 

Our theme this week for Bellarific Friday is all things SUMMER. Sweet Isabelle loves her Ice Cream was my choice for this card. Nothing says summer like ice cream, so that was an easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy choice!

Pretty lady was colored up with Copics to match the pretty papers from My Mind's Eye paper pad. Those pastel stripes remind me of an ice cream parlor awning.

I traced the chair Isabelle is sitting on with a black Sakura Glaze pen, to make it look a little more like wrought iron. It has a bit of shine and dimension, which I really like!

You're all welcome to join us in our Bellarific Friday challenge, next week we have an awesome sketch to work with! Get all the details on the SB blog. You could win some Bella Bucks!

Well I'm off to do some relaxin', hope you all have a great weekend!
