belli challenge #33

Oh, my goodness! Can you believe it is Wednesday? Wednesday means Belli Challenge Day! Guess what this week Belli is? Can you see it? Yep, it is fibers. I don't love fibers but this week I thought I could use some linen thread and it would work...right?

So, here is my card. It is with the new Sweet N Sassy stamp set that was released on Sept 1st called Happy Harvest. I do love this set and wish I would have had more time to do fun things with it but still...isn't this scarecrow adorable?! I'm not sure you can see it but I used the linen thread to make the straw that is his hands and feet. I wanted to do it around his face too but ran out of thread...darn it! Do you love the patterned paper? Yeah...me too! It is SU!'s Autumn Vine that will be available to purchase in the upcoming Holiday Mini. Bet you wish you could see it, huh? Soon, grasshopper, soon! IRL the edges of the main image are sponged with Sage Shadow and is very soft.

So, are you wondering what the Belli Challenge is? Well, it is where our fearless leader, Chris, challenges us to use items we may have around our stamping area but not use often. Smart girl isn't she? So, this week...make something fabulous with Fibers. It can be sweet and girlie or fallish like my card...it is up to you! Post a link to your card at Chris's blog and you'll be signed up to win a fun prize from Chris!

Okay, because I'm not totally sure who will and will not be participating in this weeks challenge I'm going to refer you to my sidebar to the links of the other Belli Challenge girls and go visit them...they have great stuff!

Oh, and those of you that follow my blog regularly...you should be proud of Kyler for me as he has his scripture verse memorized already! Now...to see if it is short term memory or long term memory...we shall see in the morning...either way...he is doing a GREAT job with it!

Oh, and it is Wednesday so which smiley do you get? Yep....

Hump Day
