my best friend

3/14/20 DT Favorite at World Wide Open Design Team Monthly Challenge!

Hi everyone! It’s Saturday and I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’ve popped in this evening to share a super adorable wall hanging I made today to enter into the February Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge. Everyone joining in the challenge receives a free sponsor digi to create with each month. All Dressed Up Stamps is our sponsor this month and we’re playing with the most adorable My Best Friend digi stamp. OMG, how stinkin’ cute is she?! You ought to check out The Outlawz Challenges – lots of challenges to enter and lots of fun going on!


My hubby recently bought me several large and small embroidery hoops for my crafty stash so I decided to use a small one for this project. I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers, then centered the image in the hoop and traced around the outside of the hoop to cut a circle. I adhered the image on the back of the hoop and then added some paper flowers, a ribbon bow embellished with a flower button, and a little bit of bling. I also added a circle of pink and white gingham paper to the back of the wall hanging to give it a clean and finished look on the back side.

And one more peek… I’m absolutely tickled with how this turned out! I’m always really happy when my projects turn out as good in real life as they do in my mind, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
