And The Cow Jumped Over The Moon

Good Monday morning crafty friends!!! This week I have the honor of hosting the challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. I wanted to have a little fun this week so I have chosen for everyone to use a Cricut cut of a Cow on their projects this week. I decided to go with my most favorite cow cut. It is on the Create-a-Critter cartridge. You can find her on page 60. I cut her and her layers at 3 inches. Now, she is her own cow and doesn't follow others trends. She can make a fashion statement all her own. I I sparkled up her hoofs, tail and horns with some clear Wink of Stella brush. I used some black faux half pears for her eyes. The bg DP is from Graphi 45-Mother Goose Collection 8x8 pad. I finish it off with some My Mind's Eye Metallic Dots. The sentiment that I put on the inside is from the 'Farmyard Funnies' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
That is it for me today. Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there check out the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. Then head on to your crafty space and create a project using a Cricut cut of a Cow. I'm so looking forward to seeing your 'Cow' projects!!!
Hope ya'll like my Cow card!! :)

I know these are not the best photos that I have taken, but we can't seem to get sunshine long enough for me to get good ones made!!

Hey Pumpkin!

I am so beyond excited to be a part of Mary's Cardz TV Gallery!!! The only rule we have to follow is to use Mary's stamps on our project. And that is such an easy rule to follow since I use Mary's stamps on most of my projects!! Mary has the best stamps and there is always a sentiment to go with whatever you make! Check them out by going here. Mary has three new sets out and I used one of them on my project. The new 'Frankly Frightful' set.


I made the box card from the new Fright Night Kit from SVG Cuts.
If you are a regular visitor here at my blog, you know how I so love box cards!! I think I have to have every file that is out there.
I used clear, silver, black and orange Wink of Stella brushes on my card. On the BOO, the faces of the pumpkins, webs, bats and tombstones. I so love this file!!! Now to decide which of the Grands gets this one!!!
I hope ya'll are visiting Cardz TV Gallery everyday. There is a new project showcased there every day except Sunday for your enjoyment. If you aren't visiting, you are missing some awesomeness for sure!!!!
Hope ya'll like my latest box card!!! :)



Fall Leaves

Morning everyone!! How's the weather where you are? It feels so much more like Fall this week than it did last week. Cool crisp air, leaves pretty colors and falling (will need to rake soon) and the fair just left town. Fall for sure!!! Fall Leaves is the theme that our wonderfully talented DT Sister Pam has challenged us with this week at Bitten By The Bug 2. Just use some Cricut cut Fall Leaves on your project. I decided to go with the great leaves on the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge. They can be found on pages 50, 51 and 52. I cut them at 2 inches and 2 1/2 inches. I used a brown Wink of Stella Pen to make the veins. The sentiments are from the 'Thankful for You' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.  That's it for me today.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the great 'Fall Leaves' projects that my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, look at the sidebar for the rules for our challenges, then head to your crafty spot and create a project with Cricut Fall Leaves and link it so we can come by and admire it.

Birthday

 

Janis is trying something new for our Linky Parties over at Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party. We will be doing weekly parties now. And our Linky Party for this week is 'Shaped Card'.
I needed a card for my Dad's birthday so I went to hunting in the Silhouette Store for a card. Found this cute shaped card with a fire hydrant on it. Love the sentiment that came with it. My Dad liked it, too. He wanted to know if it was three alarm because he's so hot, I told him it was because of all the candles on his cake!!! Gotta love my Dad!!! This is a Snapdragon Snippets file and is #62062. The sentiment on the inside is a wooden stamp from my stash.
Head over to PDE Linky Party and check out the projects that my DT Sisters have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and create a shape card to link up by October 6th. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!!
Hope ya'll like my shape card!!!! :)

Good Monday morning everyone!!! Glad you stopped by. Bitten By The Bug 2 has started a new challenge today. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Michelle is our hostess this week. She has challenged us to make a project using a Cricut cut of a Squirrel and/or Nuts. So perfect for this Fall season!! I just had to use the squirrel and acorn from the Create-a-Critter cartridge. You will find them on page 32. I cut the squirrel at 3 inches and the acorns at 1 inche. The acorn on the inside I cut at 1 1/2 inches. I can't remember where I got this DP, but I just love it! The wooden buttons I got at Hobby Lobby. And the sentiment is from the "Critter Captions" stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.

The frost is on.......



Morning everyone!!! Are you ready for the week 2 projects from DT B for PDE Linky Party? I decided to pull out my little sewing machine for my card. Now, I have to forewarn you that I'm still trying to get the hang of sewing a straight line on this thing. Sooooo, my stitching is anything but straight!!! :) I cut this Pumpkin from Miss Kate Cuttables using my Silhouette Cameo. It is file # 64989 in the Silhouette Store or you can find it at  Miss Kate Cuttables. I popped up the pumpkin on one thickness of foam tape. The pattern papers are from the DCWV 8 1/2x11 Fall & Halloween Basics Stack. I am loving this stack. It's great for making Fall cards. The sentiments, front and inside and the pumpkin stamped on the inside are from the 'Fall Fun' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. 
Head on over to PDE Linky Party and check out the projects that my DT Sisters make. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and create a project with some real or faux stitching on it and linky it by Sept. 29th. Looking forward to seeing what you make!!
