Stars And Stripes

Morning, morning!!! Hope all is well in your world. Wonderful here!! It's Monday and time for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. What could be better than that?!
Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Michelle has challenged us and you to make a project using a Flag and/or Banner for the 4th!! Well, I made a banner and decided to make a card, too.
For my banner I used the Independence Day cartridge. I punched holes in the corners and ran Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine through them so it can be hung. Another banner for the 4th bash at our DD and SIL's.
For the card I just had to print and cut Elmo. He can be found on the Sesame Street Elmo & Friends cartridge. The pattern paper is open stock from Hobby Lobby.
The sentiment on the inside is from the 'Happy Days' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sisters have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, look in the sidebar for the rules for our challenges. Then how about heading to your crafty space and create a project using a Cricut banner and/ or flag! So looking forward to seeing what you make!

fun Food

Morning Crafty Friends!! Are ya ready for Monday morning and a new fun challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Melanie has challenged us and you to make a project using a Cricut cut of a food item. Did you know that today is Onion Ring Day? I didn't either until Melanie told us. How about that. I decided to go with a layout this week. I know!!!! A layout instead of a card!!! I used the print and cut feature on my Cricut Explore for all of the cuts. Fast and easy!!! The picnic table is from the Camp Out cartridge. The Food is from the Fast Food cartridge. The Title is from Baby Steps and the Sun is from the Sesame Street Seasons cartridges. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I think that our oldest grandson (16 yrs.old) could eat that tall burger!!!!
How about heading on over to Bittjen By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sisters have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are there, check the sidebar for the rules for our challenges and then head to your crafty space and make a project featuring a Cricut cut of food! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Hope ya'll like my layout!!!! :)

Father's Day

A Banner Day

Good Monday morning Crafty Friends!! Hope all is well with you. Are you ready for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Maureen is our hostess this week. She has challenged us and you to make a 'Banner' using a Cricut cut. I am in the process of making things for our DD and SIL annual Fourth of July get together and decided that this would be a perfect opportunity to make a banner. I have made very very few banners. Okay, one. So I wanted one that can be used. I decided to use this Flag Banner from the Independence Day cartridge. I cut it at 5 inches wide, punched holes in the top corners and ran some Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine so I can hang it. I'm very please with how it turned out.
Sorry the picture isn't all that great. Didn't have a lot of places here to hang it to get a great picture.
Please head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the great projects that my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, look in the sidebar for the rules for our challenges. Then how about heading to your crafty place and joining us for our challenge by creating a banner project using a Cricut cut. Can't wait to see what you make!!

The Bride

Good Monday morning everyone!!! Sorry I had to bow out of last weeks challenge for Bitten By The Bug 2. Work is crazy when a holiday is near, so no crafting time. But here I am ready for this one. Hope you are, too. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Kelly is hosting this week challenge. She has challenged us and you to make a project with a theme of 'Wedding or Anniversary'. I wanted to make something that would be a great gift tag for a wedding gift. Maybe I made it a little bit big for that, but will be perfect for a big gift!! The card is from the Sweethearts cartridge. It cuts the sentiment out of the front, so I backed it with white so it would show. And of course I used the print and cut and did Cinderella dressed as a bride from the Disney Princesses cartridge. And I still have room to write to and from on the inside.
Please go on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are there, look in the sidebar for the rules for our challenges. Then head to your crafty space and create a project with the theme 'Wedding or Anniversary' using a Cricut cut!! Can't wait to see what you make!!
Hope ya'll like my simple card!!!! :)

Red, White and Blue!!!!


Good Morning Crafty Friends!!  All of us team members of the Cardz TV Gallery are so happy that you have decided to join us for our blog hop. You should have arrived here from my great DT Sister's Jeri. Didn't you just love her project? If you didn't or you just decided to stop by and visit, then head to the start of the hop and join us. I know Mary will be giving away 3 new sets of her wonderful stamps and you will be eligible to win by leaving comments at Cardz TV.   There just may be some more blog candy along the way, so you don't want to miss a stop.
Our theme is 'Red, White and Blue'. I have made a layout and a couple of cards. I used both my Cricut Explore and my Silhouette Cameo for my projects.
Let's start with the layout first. I used the Enjoy the Seasons Imagine Cartridge for the flags and title. The Sesame Street Elmo & Friends for Elmo with the flag, the Stand & Salute cartridge for the fireworks and the Independence Day cartridge for the firework rocket and firecracker. The journal tag came from the Silhouette store. It is file #28953. I bet you can guess where my photo is going to go. I used the 'Good Times' stamp set for the 'Celebrate' on the journal tag.



This first card is from the Silhouette store. File #61737. I think she is just adorable!! The bg paper is open stock from Hobby Lobby. I finished off the card with some Bo Bunny Anthem Jewels and the sentiment is from the 'Happy Days' stamp set.



And this last card I also used a file from the Silhouette store. It is #61910. Don't you think he is the most patriotic puppy you have ever seen?! Totally adorable! The bg paper on this one is also open stock at Hobby Lobby and I again used some Bo Bunny Anthem Jewels to finish it, followed by a sentiment from the 'Happy Days' stamp set.



All of Mary's awesomely wonderful stamps can be found by going to Cardz TV Stamps.


That's not all!! I will be giving away a stamp set of your choice from Mary's awesome selection of stamps. All I ask is that you leave just one comment, a way for me to reach you should you be picked and please have a USA address. I will use random.org to select the winner and will announce the winner on Monday evening.
Now you are ready to head to the next stop on the hop, my wonderfully talented DT Sister Karen.
I know you are just going to love her creation!!!!
Hope ya'll like my layout and cards!!!! :)
A list of all of the hop stops are below for just in case you get lost. Just come back here and find you way.
