La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #5 - Embellish It!

What a month! My oldest had a fever of 103.8 the other day and now has a bad cough that is keeping him up. Last week was a stomach virus. The week before that was another stomach thing. Let's hope this is it! I have a couple of packages that are waiting to go and they will be heading out Thursday morning, come rain or shine!

Well, it's Wednesday and that means it's time for another fun round of La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge. This week's challenge is to "Embellish It!".It is hosted by our talented Maureen. She has this to say: "I love to embellish my creations so I want to see how you all embellish yours! Please use at least 3 different types of embellishments on your projects this week. They can be anything - buttons, ribbon, charms, brads, flowers, glitter, etc., as long as you've got 3 different types! I hope you have fun with this challenge!"

I know many of you love to embellish. How many of you have tons of fabulous embellishments just waiting to be used? I love to collect embellishments (amongst other crafty things) and never really use them. I decided to use the three things I really love to hoard... ribbon, buttons, and bling. Hope you like what I came up with!

Introducing: Pirate Rosie

Please join in on the fun!
You do not need to use La-La Land Craft stamps in order to play along.

Thank you for the nice comment on my card! I love your Pirate Rosie card--so cute and colorful! I love your blog, too! I see you are a Penny Black fan--me too! You asked about my coloring; I use SU inks, water, a watercolor brush, and hot press watercolor paper. I hope your son gets well soon!
