Hello! Today, I am writing you from NEW YORK instead of WISCONSIN. The kids and I took a trip out to visit my friend Janette. My husband was supposed to travel for work, but they ended up cancelling his trip and he wanted to stay home with no children. So he is there enjoying the peace and quiet! :)

This week's Belli Challenge is to use texture on your cards or projects. What kind of texture? Anything that you can "feel" on your card - Magic Mesh, flocking, Flower Soft, velvet, or even hammered metal.

Look around in your stash of stamping stuff, and I'm sure you will find something you can use.

The Belli Girls did a great job of adding texture to their cards. Some used Flower Soft, some used flocking, one used a paper with velvet on it, and one used a metallic mesh on the background of her card. Too cool! Check them out at

Here is my card, my friend Janette is on the Design Team for HIGH HOPES, so I played with some of her stamps. I bought some flower soft and played a bit with it too.
