When the moon hits your face... a BIG piece'a cake, that's amore!! LOL!! Had ya goin' there, didn't I?? Remember that ol' Dean Martin song? I love those old songs. My parents had this outside speaker on the back patio of our home and when Daddy would grill outside on Saturdays, they would always play Dean Martin on the Hi-Fi stereo!! Remember Hi-Fi's?? Forget iPods, these things were a piece of furniture!! Oh, how I LOVED those days!!

Happy That's Krafty Thursday #18! Woo-hoo!!

Ok, so onto my card for today. I just love this little Cheffa Huggabug from Stamping Bella. He's too cute!! I stamped little Cheffa onto some SU Very Vanilla CS and colored him with my Copics. I cut him out with my circle Nesties and sponged a little chalk ink around the edges with the die in place. I matted him with a scalloped circle cut from some SU Basic Black and placed a few dimensionals between the two layers. This is a new paper pack I picked up at Michael's just last week and I love the colors in it. It's by DCWV and it's called, "Hittin' the Books!". Yeah, I know, I've got WAY too much paper!! I'm SO addicted! So, I matted the DP with some SU Basic Black CS and stitched around the edges. The border across the bottom is actually one of the coordinating DP's in the collection and I cut out the little triangles on the bottom edge and popped it up with a few dimensionals. To finish, I tied this yummy orange saddle stitched ribbon into a cute bubbly bow. Now That's Krafty!!

Be sure to leave a cluck below and let me know whatcha think, k? Don't forget, tomorrow is Bellarific Friday and the theme is monochromatic!! You've still got time to play along.... head on over to Bloggabella for all the details. Have a terrific Thursday!! {{{hen hugs}}}
