Happy Friday to all of you! Did you all realize that Christmas is only a week away. Ok, how many of you are ready??? I AM SO READY for the BIG MAN in the RED SUIT!! I sure hope he brings me LOTS of stuff!! (Cuz' I been such a GOOD girl this year! ROFL!!) Ok, well maybe not that good but pretty good anyway.
Today is Bellarific Friday and the theme this week was faux or sew. I actually LOVED this theme because I sew on almost every card I make. If you've never tried sewing on your card, give it a try next time. I've had some people ask if it dulls your needle or hurts your machine and I have to say, I've been using the same needle for months and I've seen no problems at all and the machine just goes right along like nobody's business! I try really hard to keep the same distance from the edge so it looks uniform. I really love the look it gives my cards, not to mention holding them together!!
For today's card I started with the card base of SU Very Vanilla and I stamped my image on the same as well. This is Presley Lollipop from Stamping Bella and I colored her with my Copics. I punched the bottom edge with my SU Scalloped border punch and matted her with some rust CS from DCWV then stitched around the edges. This DP is from My Minds Eye "be loved" collection. I should own stock in this company!! Oh, how I LOVE their papers. Ok, so I matted the DP onto the DCWV rust and stitched the edges of this piece as well. I used a coordinating piece from the collection and adhered it horizontally behind the image for a little contrast between the DP and the image. I tied an ivory ribbon to the side and added a little Flower Soft to her bunny slippers. Love that!!
Ok, there you have my Bellarific Friday post all SEWED up!! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!!! You can check out all the other Babes' cards over at Bloggabella, as well as all of the wonderful creations from the sistahs.
Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know what you think of her. Tomorrow night my family will be getting together for our annual Christmas party. I LOVE getting together with my family so I'm super excited. I look forward to this every year! I'll also be doing some baking with my daughter during the weekend too! Are you doing anything special this weekend?
