I Want to Ride my Bicycle...

Good Monday morning all my Crafty Friends!!! Isn't it a beautiful day? I sure hope ya'll had a great weekend. I did, even though I worked both Saturday and Sunday. Are you ready for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented leader Susan is hosting this week. She has challenged us and you to make a project using a Cricut cut of a Bicycle. I ended up making two cards. I made the red bicycle card first and wasn't really sure that was what I wanted. Then when I got the free 2 week subscription to Design Space, I found these bicycles on there. It said the cuts were called 'Bicycling'. Well, I called them perfect for this challenge!! I cut 2 different ones. Then I went in search of the perfect bg paper. I thought I could remember having a 6x6 paper pad that had a sheet with bicycles on it. And I found it in the MME-Sunny pad. The sentiment on front of this one is from the 'Simply Said' stamp set and the inside sentiment is from the 'Ticket Talk 2' stamp set. The sentiments on the other card are from the 'Be My Valentine' stamp set. These stamp sets are from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
We sure hope you decide to play along with us this week and make a project using a Cricut cut of a 'Bicycle'.
Hope ya'll like both of my cards!!!! :)

Partly Cloudy

Morning my Crafty Friends!! Hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great even though it rained most of the weekend. We are singing Rain, rain go away..... around here!!!! :)
I have the honor of hosting the challenge this week over at Bitten By The Bug 2. I decided since we are having so much rain that we should make projects using a Cricut cut of the sun and/or clouds. Taking advantage of the free two weeks subscription from Provo Craft, I print and cut this from the Something to Celebrate cartridge. Love the happy smile on the sun. The little clouds on the inside were cut from the Paper Pups cartridge. The inside sentiment is from the 'Congratulations' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I decided this would make a great graduation card since that is right upon us, too. Please hop 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 look at the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. Then head to your crafty space and create a project using a Cricut cut of a sun and/or clouds. Can't wait to see what you make!!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

Happy Birthday

Morning!!! It is my day to present the project at Cardz TV Gallery. If you follow me regularly, you know there is this little girl of a dear friend that I sent cards to. Her birthday is coming up, and like so many, the theme is Frozen. So I just had to purchase on of the print and cut files. I really like this Anna with Sunflowers. It is so Spring!! I backed it with this yellow cardstock. I used the 'Happy Days' (front) and 'Good Times' (inside) stamp sets. You can purchase these and all of Mary's stamps by going here.



I finished my card off with a little bling from Bo Bunny-Key Lime Jewels.
I hope you have been checking out all of the projects that my DT Sister's have been making and presenting at Cardz TV Gallery each Monday through Friday. If you haven't, then you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!!

Today is the start of a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Pam is our hostess for this week. She challenged us to make a project having something to do with April Showers/Rain. I decided to use the umbrella from the Paisley cartridge and to do it with the print and cut feature on my Explore. I so love doing the cut and print when I don't have a lot of time to work on a project. I cut it four times to give it dimension instead of using foam tape. The bg DP is from Bella Blvd-Summer Breeze. The enamel dots are from Doodlebug Designs-Spring Assortment. The sentiment is from the 'Good Friends' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!! And while you are there, check the sidebar for the rules for our challenges.

Everything is better....

Morning all my Crafty Friends! Hope ya'll had a wonderful Easter. We did. We had a wonderful service at church and a great meal and fellowship afterwards.
Today it is my honor to present the project over at Cardz TV Galllery. I let time slip up on me and had to decide what to make in a hurry. I had cut these darling cuts from the Disney-Pooh Font cartridge out and decided to use it for my card. I just love baby Tigger and this sweet little ducky. I cut several so I could stack them to have depth instead of popping them up. The b g paper is from Kathy Davis-Poppies 6x6 pad. The enamel dots are from Doddlebug Design-Birthday Boy. The sentiments are from the 'Just Saying' stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps.


I hope ya'll have been visiting Cardz TV Gallery each day Monday thru Friday and checking out what my DT Sister's have been making. If not, then you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)



He Lives!


I just want to take a moment to tell each of my Craft Friends Happy Easter!
I pray that God will bless each of you with His loving grace.
The Reason for the Season doesn't just apply to Christmas.
Love you all!!!! :)

Happy Birthday

Morning!! It's Monday and that means we are starting a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Mayra is hosting this weeks challenge. She has challenged us and you to use a Cricut frame on your project. Now I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this challenge. I checked out the frames that are on the Elegant Edges cartridge. I picked one out, cut the back of it. When I started cutting the top piece with the design on it, it got chewed up. Well, the design did. Tried again, and it happened again. So I decided that I would just use the back piece. I then used the Birthday Bash cartridge and cut the Happy Birthday sentiment. I popped up the frame and glued the sentiment to the card front. The bg designer paper is from My Mind's Eye-Happy Day 6x6 pad. The dots are from Doodlebug Designs Inc.-Snow Flurry Sprinkles. The inside sentiment is from the 'Make a Wish' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Hope you head 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 at the rules for our challenges. Then how about heading to your crafty space and create a project using a Cricut frame cut. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
