Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Tuesday!!!!!! I am SOOOOOOO excited about this blog hop. My mom asked me if I was going to do the blog hop this month and I asked her what was the challenge and when she said it was to use felt, I couldn't wait to figure something to do. Then I decided that I wanted to do something different and wanted to make something for my nieces. So headbands came to mind. I can only imagine their faces when they get these in the mail. Today, I thought about making matching headbands for their dolls. So, I will be making those too before I mail these out :)

This one, I used True Black and White. Sooo pretty. The headband had some funky material over it so I ripped it off and added Scor-Tape to both sides and wrapped PTI white ribbon around it. The base of the embellishment is the Mat Stack 2, the flowers are the Beautiful Blooms die. The middle black flower is four of the flowers and folded to make it poofy. It is finished off with a black flower button. Oh, and the little white dots on each side of the Mat Stack 2 die is the centers from the Eyelet die. I so couldn't just throw those away :)

Next up.......
......is Raspberry Fizz and White. SOOOO bright in person. I wrapped the headband with some sheer ribbon and added the Eyelet die in white. I again used the Beautiful Blooms dies and finished it off with a white button.

I can not wait to do the smaller versions for their dolls. I hope you enjoyed my project. I am off to "hop" around and check out all your projects!!!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Belles n' Whistles DT call

Hello!!! I was actually able to go online and I happened to find out that Belles n' Whistles was having a DT call, and hoping that I am not too late :) I wanted to really try to get a spot. I LOVE Elizabeth Bell's images and really haven't had the time to actually play with them. BUT, this is all changing. I had to finally quit my job due do issues and my boss passing away, so now I get to play in the craft room ALOT more than I have had time to do. I wanted to make a simple card. I wanted this cute image to really shine. I hope I did it justice :)
