Stitch it at Bellarific Fridays!

I like Fridays; it's the end of the week and I get to play along at Stampingbella's 'Bellarific Fridays' challenge. This week we had to incorporate stitching into out card. This card was a bit of a rush job - in-laws coming, house a mess = panic stations!! I had coloured up this image last week but obviously it was done with no thought as to what papers I'd use as I couldn't find any to match. Thank goodness for NitWit Collections!!! These papers are from the Ladies and Gentlemen Collection.
The stamp is Opal the Optimist and she's my new favourite :-)
I apologise again for not visiting as many blogs as I'd hoped. I really hope my health starts to improve soon - it gets you down after a bit! I'm sending hugs to everyone, especially those in need. Hugs, Jayne xxx


  1. Hugs back to you Jayne, sounds like YOU need them!! What a fabulous card, she is a beauty and the scrummy papers are perfect. Love the "stitching" what a fab idea. Happy Easter to you and yours xx

  2. Ooh she is so fabulous, what a gorgeous card! I love the stitched detail too, such a perfect addition.

  3. Oooooh she is lovely Jayne. I only have a few Bellas but this is lovely. I may have to invest in her!

  4. I had this lady on my desk earlier and then decided to use a different image..she is a fave of mine elegant, and I adore her in the bold red and black :-)

    I do hope you feel better soon hun,

    Big hugs, Kat xx

  11. Opal the Optimist! Hee hee, well I would be an optimistic too if I had a big old bottle of wine to myself. Great card and sometimes you just have to find papers to fit the image instead of the other way around.


I love it when you leave a message. It makes my day :)
