Knit happens!


Ain't that the truth?? LOL!
Mornin' hens! TGIF!! Woo-hoo! Don'tcha just LOVEEEE Fridays? Man, I sure do! The weekend is HERE! Yippee-skippee! And of course that also means it's time for another Bellarific Friday card for ya too! The theme for today's Bellarific Friday card was a sketch by our own Ebrubella!
Thank goodness Ebru helped those of us who are circle card challenged by providing us with a square version, as well. Whew!! I was sweatin that one! Ok, so here's my take on Ebru's sketch! This is "Knitting Peep" from Stamping Bella. Isn't she cute? I stamped her onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with my Copics. I cut her out with my circle Nesties and then sponged around the edges with some chalk ink. For those of you who've never seen this sponging technique before, I have a video on it HERE. Then I matted the image with some DP cut in a circle as well and then once again with a scalloped white circle. The DP I used on today's card is from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl collection which ties in perfectly with the theme too! I finished the card by stitching around the edges and adding a couple of Prima Flowers with a button on top! Cute huh? Wanna see some more ideas using this super duper cool sketch? Head on over to Bloggabella and check out all the Bellababes cards, as well as the sistahood too! I know they'll have tons of inspiration to offer. So what's next week's Bellarific Friday challenge? Well how about Christmas in July! Hey, it's never too early to get started on my Christmas cards, that's for sure! Although this heat certainly isn't helping my mood any!! Seriously!!! Could it get any more miserable? Hot Pictures, Images and Photos Oh well, look on the bright side, that just means a weekend of staying inside and CRAFTING! Hot diggity dog!! Sounds like a plan to me! Okee dokee, that's it from the hen house today! I hope you hens have a wonderful weekend and try to stay cool! {{{hen hugs}}}
