Kathy Hare Buddy Hop!

Hello craft friends! Today you may need some sunglasses for my card, but it worked for this little artist!  We are having our little buddy blog hop with all the Sugar Nellie DT and are all using a different Kathy Hare image than we used on Saturday.  If you would like to go straight to one of their blogs, I have them all listed on my sidebar, just click away.

I decided I would enter the Sugar Bowl with this one where there is a cute sketch to follow.  I felt like the strips of paper looked a bit like a buckle, so I went with that and rounded the corners and added some homemade buttons.  All the strips were embossed with my cuddlebug swirl folder.  All edges were sewn with my trusty little Janome sewing machine.  The tiny flower is a Nellie Snellen punch.  Believe it or not this is the large size! ha ha!  The center flower is an old Marvy punch I had.  My image is colored with distressed inks, of course and the papers are  We R Memory Keepers.

I wanted to put the saying "You Color My World" somewhere, but didn't see how I could squeeze it on the front, so I guess I will just put it on the inside. 

Be sure to check out the rest of the Sugar Nellie team's cards. 

You can purchase these NEW stamps from Funkykits HERE!

I hope my little bright card will brighten your day!!! (what a nerd, I know!!!!)

Thanks for stopping by, I have the best intentions this week of stopping by all of yours!

Hugs, Dena
