Team Yumi's Yummies vs. Team Fumi's Faves

Good Morning Everybody! Let's give a big cheer for Friday! Woo hoo!

If you came here from Cebelica's blog then you already know about today's Yumi & Fumi Handmade "Battle Hop". If you just happened upon my post then you might want to head back to the Battle Hop post over at the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog. Trust me on this - you DON'T want to miss a step!

We thought it would be fun to have a good-natured "Battle Hop" between Team Yumi and Team Fumi where we each get to pick our favourite embellishments and use them on our project. If you are a frequent visitor to my blog then you know I don't go embellishment crazy on my cards. I usually stick with just one, sometimes two, types of embellishments. I typically go with some seam binding, ribbon, twine, flowers, brads, buttons OR adhesive gems. Every now and then I like to shake things up with a doily or some metal charms.

For this challenge, I actually chose THREE of my faves from those listed above:
  • seam binding. I LOVE how it can be coloured or dyed to match, though I left it plain on this card.
  • buttons. I always try to pick up on the colours in my papers when I choose my buttons. That's how I roll, all matchy matchy.
  • twine. It's great for tying those buttons together when you layer them AND for adding a little contrast to your ribbon. For masculine cards, you can't beat twine. A great way to get your embellie fix on without going all girlie-girl on those cards for that special guy.

So, what do you think? Is Fumi doing a fantastic job of highlighting "Fumi's Faves"? If you think so, then be sure to do the following to have a chance at winning one (or more!) of the prizes up for grabs along the Battle Hop:

1. Leave a comment on MY POST (this one) to be entered into a draw to win an assortment of the embellishments I used on the card above. That's right! I'm giving away everything you see in the photo below to one lucky commenter on this post!

That's a 100 yard roll of seam binding, 12 rolls of jute twine and matching buttons. I'll even toss in a brand new, unused Fumi stamp! Don't worry, if you are the winner and already have this one, I have several other extra Y&FH stamps from which you can choose.

2. Visit every stop along the hop and leave a comment for each DT member on the hop (if they are offering their fave embellies as a prize, you could win that one as welll). Then, leave a comment on the "Battle Hop" post back at Yumi & Fumi Handmade identifying the DT member who you think best met the challenge and what you liked most about their project. And be sure to link up as well using the inlinkz tool. I know it's no fun picking faves but....someone has to be your fave! Remember, just one vote! By commenting back on the Y&FH blog you are going to be eligible to win one heck of an awesome prize from Y&FH: a Y&FH stamp of our choosing plus items similar to those that EACH DT members lists as their faves! AND - you have a voice in deciding the individual DT winner and the overall winning team. Will it be Team Yumi or Team Fumi? I can't wait to find out!

So - do you think you have room in your stash for all those goodies if you are the big winner? Don't forget to leave a comment and then head on over to head over to the super-crafty Rinne's blog. She's the next stop in the hop! If you get lost, just go back to the main post on the Y&FH blog. You have until 11:00PM PST on November 18th to finish the hop! The winners will be announced on November 20th!

Thanks for visiting! See you again soon!
