belli challenge 26

Good morning everyone! Today is the day for the Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is felt. Now, I must say that I had every intention of using felt that I had on my desk but...when I was at my LSS I saw this fun felt pocket and had to have it! So...it sat on my desk for 3 days before I used it...does that count?

Anyway, to make this gift bag I used the new SU! paper called Bella Rose (everyone is getting in on that "Bella" word, huh?) along with Riding Hood Red card stock. The scripture is from SNSS Jesus Cares set. Really, if you like scripture stamps...SNSS has a GREAT collection of them! Some chocolate satin ribbon forms the handle and white satin ribbon for the little bows on the pocket. The note card inside the pocket comes out so that you may write your note on it. A little bit of pink tissue paper finishes this bag off.

So...what is a Belli Challenge you may ask? Each week, Chris will give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we all tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter! All you have to do is create a project using felt and post a link to that project on THIS post at Chris's blog and you'll have the chance to win an assortment of paper from Chris! Please have your projects linked up to Chris by Monday evening so she can choose a winner on Tuesday and post it on Wednesday. Should you upload your project to a public forum (such as SCS) please use the keyword CBC26 so that we are all able to see the wonderful projects!

This is just so neat!!! I have felt somewhere around here but it was purchased for making stamp pads with when I use acrylic paint so I am not sure what colors I have! LOL I may have to see about using it ON a project rather than FOR one! LOL
