Home is where the BRAINS is....

Here's a hilarious Dead Sea Toon from By Miss Rach, DST Hermit Crab.  I LOVE this stamp.  He was one of the first stamps I got.  My hubby came up with this funny saying, "Home is where the BRAINS is...BRAINS."  LOL.   So happy to say that Miss Rach has graciously agree to give out some wonderful prizes this year from her fabulous collection.

Question of the day:  What embellishments are your favorites?  which are your least favorites?

My favorites are, hmmmm can you all guess by now???--lace and buttons, but I also love flowers, brads, cardstock stickers, bling;  My least favorite are alphabets, GLITTER, and grungeboard.

Fun card!
I love lace and ribbon! Sequins and enamel dots are fun too. I love adding glitter if it isn't the loose kind... Stickles and Wink of Stella are my favorites. Rhinestones and pearls are pretty too if they aren't overdone.
One I don't care for as much are stickers.

Cute card!

Cindy Holmes said...

Cuuuuuuuuuuute Card! Hmmm my favorite embellishments that's a hard one? I love flowers, lace, ribbon, washi tape, gems, sequins, glitter and so on and so on! LOL!! I really don't have a least favorite one!

Karenladd said...

Adorable card that made me smile!!! My favorite embellishments are twine, small rhinestones, enamel dots and washi tape. Least favorite are buttons, wooden or metal shapes (because I can't ever adhere them properly and they fall off in the mail), and stickers. I also don't seem to use ribbon very often and always reach for the twine instead.

Rachel Duong said...

This is a hilarious stamp and your card is great! I love to use stickles and ribbon for embellishments. I can’t think of an embellishment I don’t like!

SHartl said...

Lol, this is such a cute card! My I love using ribbon and twine, washi tape, Nuvo drops and enamel dots, rhinestones and pearls, and die cuts. Least favorite are probably large rhinestones and pearls, flowers, and wood embellishments

jane stillman said...

What a cute image. I love lace and flowers, I don't dislike glitter but I don't use it that much xx

Gail Hutchinson said...

Love that image. My most favourite, maybe flowers if the project suits although sequins are great to fill a void. I don’t think there is an embellishment I don’t like except the ones you’re not sure which adhesive to use on

sammi said...

Fun card! Love the image and sentiment! My favorite embellishments are flourishes, pearls and buttons. Least favorite: Anything chipboard, alphabets and huge flowers

Rachel Duong said...

Your card is too adorable! I love to use stickles! The fine glitter is awesome and goes a long way. I don't have an embellishment I don't like. I like to mix up the things I use so I can't say I have one that I don't like. My main concern is finding an adhesive that keeps some of the embellishments on the card.

Vivian Foo said...

Your card is adorable. I rarely use embellishments as I work mostly on journal pages.

Kathy said...

Funny card! I use fliers more than anything.

cjknick said...

What a cute card! My favorite embellishments are clear bubble embellishments. They are are subtle but add just the right touch.

Stacy H-W said...

Funny card! I think my favs are sequins or enamel dots. Least favorite to use is lace because I can never get it to look good.

Mel C said...

My favorite embellishments are Gems, Pearls, Lace, Ribbon, Charms, Stickles, Flowers (need small flowers)! Enamel dots are new to me. My least favorite embellishments is big buttons.

StampNK said...

This is such a cute hermit crab, and a funny sentiment Holley. I like to use washi tape, twine and ribbon, enamel dots, and small brads. I don't use metal or wood embellishments because they are too heavy for cards and I don't use lace because I can't figure out how to attach it. Oh, and the same goes for buttons or chipboard

Fikreta said...

its so great card!
I love flowers and die cuts :D

Gwyneth said...

Another great, quirkey, card Holley.
I guess my favourite embelishments are paper flowers and leaves, with sticky back pearls following close behind, and least used ones are sequins and buttons, though I do have some in my crafty stash I rarely get them out. I like glitter, but tend to stear clear of it due to the mess I manage to crwate.

Linda Dicks said...
