Hey, all!  It's time for Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella!  The theme this week was Stitching and I have to admit, I am not much of a seamstress.  Nope, there's not a sartorial bone in my body.  Several years ago I purchased a small Janome sewing machine specifically for sewing on cards, but I haven't a clue how to use it.  My friends and my mom have shown me step by step on numerous occasions how it works, but I must have a mental block.  

When forced to do a bit of sewing, I usually opt for a couple of hand stitches.  I like the rustic look and I can leave the sewing machine in the closet.  My darling victim today is Uptown Girl Faith the Fairy.  I had a bit of a coloring fiasco with her.  I was laying down the V99, which is a super deep dark purple, and out blobbed a big glop of ink right on her arm.  YIKES!  I thought Faith was headed to the trash bin.  I worked and worked on her with my Colorless Blender and finally fudged it enough to make it passable.  You can still see it.  Looks like a big bruise on her upper arm.  Maybe I can pass it off with a good backstory.  Perhaps she belongs to a weekend Fairy Fight Club.  We'll never know, however, because the first rule of Fairy Fight Club is you DON'T talk about Fairy Fight Club.  The second rule of Fairy Fight Club is YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT FAIRY FIGHT CLUB!  HA!

Find Faith the Fairy in the Stamping Bella Shop along with tons of other wonderful designs AND check out all of the wonderful DT creations on the Blogabella.  LOTS of great stuff!  

Ok, I'm outie!  Until next time, stay crafty   


  1. Gorgeous card!! Love the coloring!!

  2. I LOL'd at your story Cheryl! I honestly wouldn't have even noticed her "bruised" arm as the rest of the card is superb! I think it's 'cause her wand is so heavy :) Have a great weekend!

  3. What a fabulous card Cheryl.. Adorable image.
