Besties Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Sherri's Besties DT blog hop – we are all excited for this being our second hop and the projects we have to show you are fantastic.

Sherri has been creating her new Besties  for some time now and we are all delighted to see how popular they have become in the crafting world.
The talented ladies in the line up for this hop are all  loving the digis and looking forward to showcasing just a few of them for you today using sewing or adding buttons.  That's the challenge this week over at

 The digi I used is called Come Rain or Shine

I used glossy accents to give dimension and make the umbrella, rain drops and puddle look wet. 

Cardstock:  Gina K Designs white, lemon drop and jelly bean green
Patterned Paper:  Close To My Heart Dream Pop paper pack, My Mind's Eye, Springtime
Ink:  Colorbox Cornflower, Memento Dandelion (sponged)
Stamp:  Sherri Baldy's Besties Stamp, Come Rain or Shine
Greeting:  My Favorite Things Umbrella Sentiments
Copic Markers
Spellbinders:  Petite Ovals and Scalloped Oval
Dies:  butterflies and vine flourish, Cheery Lynn
Ribbon:  Gina K Designs, white organza
Glossy Accents
Buttons: Mixed Greens, Gina K Designs, White, my stash
Rhinestones: Kaiserkraft
Mother of Pearl Gems: Want2Scrap
Twine in buttons:  The Twinery

 Close up of sewing.  This is the first time I've ever sewn on a card.  If I can do it, anyone can because I don't even know how to sew.  It took me 2 hours to thread bobbin, needle, etc.  LOL!

I probably shouldn't show this but this is how I started.  lol


We are offering some amazing blog candy for some lucky commenters who take part in the hop too.
