Fun little card and pillowcase!

Isn't this the cutest card! I used a bella stamp from I love ALL her stamps and she just came out with some of the most fabulous hugabug stamps and some new Ketto stamps. I don't think that this card is too bad for a beginner! Do you? I colored her with my Copic markers (that I am in love with), put a little dimension on two balloons by using, hmmm...I forget the name, but it makes it look really shiny and raised. I also used my nestabilities for the oval and the scalloped oval. Boy, do those things make everything easy or what?!
Here's a photo of the pillowcase I made for an activity in my church. We teach 8-12 year olds fun things and this is one of them. For anyone who knows me, they know that I don't know how to sew. I have the top of the line Viking sewing machine and not much knowledge to use it. We all have to learn right? My daughter loves her new little pillowcase and I used a technique that hides the inside seam on the band. Wanna see?.....

I know, it's such a silly little thing to be proud of, what with it being only about 4 seams, but I really am proud of it!! LOL!
