DESIGN DIVAS BLOG HOP and BELLI CHALLENGE - OLDIES BUT GOODIES...

Hello Everyone! Today is a busy day for me in Blog Land, so depending on when you are here...if you are looking for the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Post or the Creative Cuts and More Blog Post scroll down! :) If you want to see MORE of what I created for today, please scroll down and take a look around! I would love to show you what I have been busy creating!!!





Today the Design D.I.V.A.S's theme for the Blog Hop is OLDIES BUT GOODIES.... as I mention that, it is ALSO BELLI CHALLENGE DAY. For those of you who do not know about the Belli Challenge - it is ALL about using your OLD STUFF up!!! This weeks challenge is to create a card using FELT OR FABRIC.

Now, if you are here for the Design D.I.V.A.S Blog Hop, you should have come from the ever so talented Julie Buhler's Blog. I have subscribed to her blog for years now and have enjoyed seeing her creativity over flow from my computer! If you did NOT come here from Julie's Blog, all of the fabulous action starts at the very creative Brenda's Blog!

Now, enough chitter chatter! You want to know about my card, right???
Remember 2 years ago when the felt flowers were all of the rage? Well, this card features one of those!!! I hope it doesn't look like an after thought... although, I have to admit...it kind of was. But shhhhh.... don't tell anyone and I won't either. lol


I used the Technique Junkie Newsletter February/ March 2011 edition and the technique Distressed Colorblocking.

Stamp Set: BIRDS  from I Brake For Stamps ( I have had this set for almost 2 years!) save yourself 10% by using the code Save10Chris


Cardstock: Designer Paper Unknown, I have had it in my scrapbook stash for quite awhile!, Hunter, Celery, white


Accessories and Ink: Distressed Inks, Black, Dew Drops, Felt flowers, Mini Glue Dots


(Go here next:) When you are done taking a look around here, you will NOT want to miss seeing what the talented Deb Felts has to show you!


For those of you Belli Challenge fans, you will definitely want to see what those wonderful women have to share with you too!


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment!! I hope you have a wonderful day!
INKY HUGS-

Beautiful card- I love the bird image and the soft colors! I never got into the felt flower craze...but do love the accent they add to a card.
