1st Thursday Of The Month.. It's Blog Hoppin` Time!

Woot!! Good early morning to you! Make sure you grab a cuppa coffee or your favorite warm beverage, your fuzzy bunny slippers and a big blanket to curl up in and hop around with us! I always love the blog hop. It is so much fun to see the creativity that our group has! This month's challenge was to use fabric. When I thought about this at first.. I was like.. stumped! What? Fabric? But, I do NOT sew. I can't even thread a machine (no joke). Here is what i came up with and I hope you enjoy the projects:

Yes, we are now dressed up and going to the (gum) ball! You are saying.. EH? Inside the bag, are Valentine colored gumballs.. and the dress and well.. you get the idea! I was trying to be funny! *watching the lead balloon fall*. Ha!

What I used:

Real Red Card Stock
Whisper White Card Stock
Very Vanilla Card Stock
Basic Black Card Stock
Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Apothecary Accents Framelits
5/8 inch Flower Trim
1/8  inch Taffeta Ribbon - Real Red
More Amore Designer Fabric
Basic Jewels Pearls
Sticky Strip
Stampin Dimensionals

And the next project, the bag..
