What is the Belli Challenge you ask?
Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!

This weeks, Belli Challenge is to make a project with your DOILIES!

Here is what you need to do...
1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project with your DOILIES
3. Share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC54. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or Paper Craft Planet or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC54 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!
4. I will do a drawing and the person whose name I draw will be a BELLI GUEST DESIGNER the Third week of March.
5. Deadline for entry is Tuesday evening 7 p.m. Central time. But you can do ANY Belli Challenge at any time - we still WANT to see! :)

Last week's winner was Mybratz check her FABULOUS project out HERE. Her button card is unique AND BEAUTIFUL! Check it out and congratulate her!!!
Now, this is my sweetheart. She loves to be with me at all times and wanted to get in on the BELLI CHALLENEGE this week - the small heart has John 3:16 inside of it. I can take a close up of it in the morning.

For another project with a DOILY see HERE
I had this giant doily floating around the house the past few weeks. I do not even know where it came from!!! LOL

Here are the details for this project:

Beautiful doily projects Chrissy! I'm so excited about stamping with this talented Belli team! Everyone is so creative and wonderfully talented! Thanks for the opportunity to join in with you ladies!!

Suzanne said...

It took me a while, but I finally found a very old package of round paper doilies. I posted my card on Paper Craft Planet at Tomorrow I will post it on my BLOG as well. This was lots of fun after I figured out how to attach the doily without destroying it and I really like how they look on cards. Thanks for the challenge.
