A Happy Birthday Dolly

Hi everyone!  I’m filling in for Julia this week, hosting her WT challenge.  I thought it might be fun to add some kind of fuzz to our projects…fuzzy string, trim, paper, embellishments…anything, as long as it’s fuzzy or looks like it’s fuzzy.  Sound fun?  If you’d like to play along, upload your card or project to SCS using the keyword WT232 so everyone can see your fuzz.  (lol)

Happy Birthday


Dolly is another of my new Stamping Bella images.  (She’s in the Ketto category in case you want to add her to your cart.  Just trying to be helpful. 🙂 )  

I added some red Fun Flock to the hearts on her jumper and then used some “fuzzier-than-I-normally-like-kind-of-pieces” of jute string in the buttons and cross-stitches.

My very sweet friend, Lori, made a sample for today’s fuzz challenge too.  Be sure to hop on over and check it out! (Btw, it’s her fault I bought this Dolly stamp…just sayin’. 😉 )

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
