Bella of the Ball

I don't know about you but I am seriously dragging today.  I am drinking my coffee and I might just have to load up on another later (maybe even a PSL10) if this doesn't kick in soon!  It will all be good by this time tomorrow though because I might still be sleeping! :)  I work today and class tonight so I am working from home tomorrow.  YAHOO!  I love not having to get up at the wee crack of dawn to get dressed, working in PJ's is awesome!

So I am not exactly feeling like the Bell of the Ball today, BUT I have a quick card share which I am calling Bella of the Ball because it features some Bella Blvd. products.   Can you believe it, there isn't one stamped bit on it?!?!  It is pretty CAS but it really shows off the product and frankly doesn't need much more.  A little twine and some wood chips and wah-lah!  I am entering this into the Moxie Fab World Ready Made Embellishment Challenge, the MFW- Wood, Cork and Metal Challenge.

So with all that in mind, today's Question of the Day is- Besides coffee, what helps perk you up when you are in need?

PS- Yesterday's question of the day was asking for fave cookie recipes and I haven't gotten any yet, please share! :)

What a fabulous card and yes, the paper is lovely! Bella of the Ball, indeed! Hope the coffee - and some much needed rest, from the sounds of it - sees you feeling more energized! Working from home tomorrow - lucky you!! Coffee is also my 'go to' perk-up beverage...and wouldn't it go nicely with a batch of these (since you have a pumpkin theme going).http://bakingbites.com/2013/09/pumpkin-spice-snickerdoodle-blondies/
Have a great evening!

LOL! I looooooooove visiting your blog!! You always make me smile! (and I apologize for not being able to stop by more often! Looks like October will be spotty because we are gone 10 days- every weekend! I will do my best to stay caught up!! LOL!)!

LOVE that you get to work from home! Enjoy being in your PJs (I would work in my green dress... or red one... Trav hates those dresses! LOL! I know I look frumpy but they are soooo comfy!)!

LOVE this card! The colors are perfect! Fresh and fun! LOVE the wood stars too! FAB card!

Answer- actually.... I don't like coffee. Never really tried it. I hate the smell. I drink only water and orange juice (sometimes milk if I gulp it down ASAP! I don't like that either but I know it helps the bones). :)
