Bling It On!


The current challenge on Mo Manning's challenge blog has a fun theme of "Bling It On" and this is my entry card. I looked through my files, as I wanted an image that would look good with bling and this cutie was perfect! The name of this digital image of Mo's is 'Danielle And Her Baby Muffin' and she is all dressed up and playing Mama.

I wanted to paper piece the image as well as add bling and so this card took most of the day to create! You can see from the first photo that I printed the image on various patterned papers to give me some variety. The dress and headband are green polka dot, the blanket in the buggy and the ruffle of Muffin's hat are a flower print, the ruffle on the buggy and the pillow inside are a pale green - as are the leggings which I also colored with a marker, the boa and the purse and the shoes are all a yellow polka dot - with the added yellow Stickles for bling and Muffin was printed on a gray cardstock. This all took a long time, with lots of fussy cutting, but I love the results!

A closer look at the bling on Danielle's boa, purse and shoes. Go to Mo's Challenge blog to see all of the wonderful bling at

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! It was quite a shock to wake up this morning to a very cold bedroom! With our temperatures of 80 degrees for so many days here in this part of WI, I have been keeping the bedroom window open at night as it has stayed around 60 degrees. I have had the thermostat shut off and we had our air conditioner covers removed so when it was so cold this morning I checked and it was only 60 degrees inside the apartment! I turned on the TV to see the weather report and the temperature outside was 34 degrees! Quite a change! Wishing you sunshine today!
