Good Monday morning to ya!!! Well the weekend has passed and we start a new week. The last full week of August. This month is going by pretty fast. It being Monday means something though. A new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Caroline is hosting this weeks challenge. She has challenged us and you to make a project, using a Cricut cut that has something to do with 'Friendship'. I found this cut on the Something to Remember cartridge. Using the print and cut feature on my Explore made quick work of this card. The pattern bg paper is from the 'My Reflections Zoe' collection from Close to my Heart. You can get this collection by visiting Susan's Close to my Heart shopping page here. These pattern papers are great. The sentiment is from the 'Love Right Now' stamp set that I got when I bought the Artistry Cartridge that I ordered from Susan's site. I finished off my card with some white faux half pearls.

Have a Grape day!

Morning!! We had a great weekend. Hope you did, too. I'm ready for the new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 and I hope you are too. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Brenda is hosting this week. She has challenged us to make a project using any Cricut cut of 'Fruit'. I kinda just sat at my work table and had to think about this one. I wanted something a little different. I looked through the Preserves cartridge and decided to make the bunch of grapes. And I wanted them on a tag. I cut the tag from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge. I used some Stampin' Up Blackberry Bliss ink and inked up my tag. Darker at the bottom and lighter at the top. I cut two of the leaves and popped the top one up on the other. I used some seam binding that I crinkled and dyed. I finished off my tag with a sentiment from the 'Foodie Punnies' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
I sure hope you will head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, look in the sidebar for the rules to our challenges. Then how about heading to your crafty space and create a project using a Cricut cut of fruit.

Rachelle Birthday Bash Blog Hop



Good morning everyone!! We are so glad you have decided to join our blog hop honoring our wonderful friend Rachelle's birthday. Happy Birthday Rachelle!!!!
If you got here from Deb's blog then you are in the right place. If you just decided to stop by, well thank you. How about joining us for our blog hop? You will really enjoy all of the projects that these talented ladies have made. Just start at the beginning with Rachelle. She has some awesome blog candy to giveaway too!!! Make sure you read the rules for how to be in the draw to win.
In honor of Rachelle's birthday, I have made two cards.
This first card I used an SVG from My Scrap Chick called Bee-e. I cut it out using my Cricut Explore. I added some clear Wink of Stella to it's wings and Glossy Accents to the eyes. I embossed the bg using the Cuttlebug Honeycomb embossing folder. The sentiment on the front is from the 'Birds and Bees' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I added some Bo Bunny-Modern Miss Jewels to the corners of the sentiment piece and popped it up. On the inside, I used the border embossing folder from the Honeycomb set. The inside sentiment is from the 'Heartfelt Basics' stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I finished the inside with some more of the Bo Bunny Jewels.


The second card is a cut file from the Silhouette Store. It is called Bronto Dinosaur and file # 85866. I also cut the envelope that goes with it. It is file #85869. These are from Snapdragon Snippets. This file makes an a7 card. Very simple and easy to make using my Silhouette Cameo. I used the pieces, little dinosaur and dinosaur feet to put on the inside. I think it is perfect for the little guy in your life that's having a birthday.


Well, that is it for me. I hope you like my cards!!!!
Oh, wait. I have some blog candy to give away, too!! Please just leave one comment and a way for me to get in touch with you should you win.
