I'm back with another Bella-riffic Friday post and I'm excited to be showing this FUN sketch by our very own Jeaniebella:
What's more? I've been enjoying the company of two of my very bestest girlies, Pammy and Mercy and I am THRILLED to finally be able to see them again. (Jessie we are thinking of you this weekend and wish you the BEST with your move! :)
Funny, when I was coloring up the image for my card today, I didn't really think it would tie into a post about being with my friends, but it totally did... Seriously, does anyone even REMEMBER rotary phones? I remember thinking I was so super cool when I learned to dial then phone with a pen or pencil eraser, LOL....I remember the first time I called a boy on a rotary phone. It took forever to get to that 7th digit and I remember the butterflies grew stronger with each passing turn of the dial....most of all, I remember how my Grandma used to take her index finger and point it ever so perfectly and elegantly to dial a number from her yellow wall phone...ah, the things we remember.
Does ANYONE call anyone anymore? I do, when I can. For a long time I got into a rut of not talking to anyone over the phone. I am a huge texter and emailer, facebooker, etc. but really there is nothing like a good ol' fashioned call or even a card in the mail. I sent out a bunch of cards the other day and the emails I've been getting are really telling- you can really feel the appreciation and I am going to continue to do that because it made my heart happy to hear! It's rare and precious times like these when you can actually visit in PERSON that make it even more important to sprinkle my loved ones' world with little calls and cards in the mail when I can...because they are a POSITIVE influence in my life and I want to be one in theirs <3 Something about hearing happy voices on the other end of that line...love it :)
SO yeah...the "Call Me Peep" from Stamping Bella ended up being a VERY appropriate little stamp for today! I colored the image w/ my Copics and used
