Hardware malfunction...

Say it with me....oy.
LOL!

After installing some updates on my trusty ol' laptop here and some weather moving into the area I have had some computer and internet woes- so sorry my Bellariffic Friday post is up a bit late, but I'm SO glad you're here!

I have been wanting to play with this ADORABLE Tabitha Tea Cup girl stamp for a while and today was the day!   

This week at Stamping Bella we have a "Hardware" challenge, to use hardware on our projects.  I'm not a big fan of the metal embellies but these Filigree brads from Stampin' Up! have always been one of my favorite embellishments to use.  I think they are so pretty and dainty looking and were just PERFECT for proper Miss Tabitha here :)

I paper pieced her teacup and she's colored with Copics.  My apologies about the thick border on this card, I was fooling around with Photoshop in preparation for a HUGE 365 Project I am participating in and trying to get the basics of PSE 8 down...what a feat!  Sheesh!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Bellariffic Babes this week:

Next up?   one of my FAVE techniques!  Our August 12th challenge is to use PAPER PIERCING on your card or project- so send those Bellariffic projects into Em- you never know!  You could win Bella bucks just for entering or commenting on Bloggabella.~

on that note- I'll be back soon.  I have a HeART Journaling project to share and a giveaway this weekend too!  For now, I'm clearing off the table to STAMP with my Mama :)   I can't wait til' she gets here to play with me!
xoxo,

Hi Jessica. I love your card. Your coloring is so beautiful and it makes your card all the sweeter. I love the little metal flowers with it as well. I don't have this stamp, but OMWord I love her round little head with her orange bow on it. Of course you have used my all time favorite papers and your stitching is awesome. Hope you have a great week. Hugs, Lisa
