Hoo's having.......

Morning Everyone!!! We had a wonderful weekend! Hope you did, too. I'm all ready for the new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Maureen is our hostess for this weeks challenge. She has challenged us to use a Cricut cut of an Owl on our project. I pulled out the Kate's ABC's cartridge and cut this darling owl from page 39 at 3 inches. I then used the Pooh and Friends cartridge and cut the moon and stars from page 12 at 1 1/4 inches. I coated the stars and the whites of the owls eyes with my Wink of Stella clear brush. I used glossy accents on the leaves. I outlined the moon with a gold Wink of Stella pen. Since I'm always needing birthday cards, that's what I made this one into. The sentiment on the inside is from the 'For the Birds' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Head on over to Bitten by The Bug 2 and check out the owl projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then read the rules for our challenges in the sidebar before heading to your crafty space to create your own owl project to link up. Can't wait to see what ya make!!
Hope ya'll like my owl birthday card!!!! :)

Flowers

Good Saturday morning ya'll!!! Hope you have a big weekend planned with some time in there for a little bit of crafting. I'm at work this morning, but I hope to get in my crafty room a little while this afternoon when I get home. I hope ya'll aren't tired of me making box cards yet. I just had to make this flower one from Lori Whitlock. I got it from the Silhouette Store. It is file #59704. I love the flowers. Hubby has some beautiful flowers in our front yard that are blooming so prettily. My favorite are his roses. For this box card, I used some designer cardstock from Basic Gray. And I finished it off with some Doodlebug 'Birthday Girl' Sprinkles in the center of the flowers.
Have you been checking out the daily projects this week? Well, if you haven't, you sure have missed some awesomeness for sure!!!! Also, you still have time to create a project for our current challenge. Just make a project using at least 2 die cuts and link it by 10pm, EST, tonight.
That's it for me today. Have a great weekend!!
Hope ya'll like my card box!!!! :)

Good Tuesday morning!! It's time for the mid-linky team to showcase their projects for the current Linky Party at Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party. The theme this time is 'Tags'. Now, I really wanted a flip flop tag because my BFF and I have been talking flip flops lately. We will be heading to Gulf
Shores towards the end of August for some girl time and I told her that we need some flip flops with a great design on them. She's happy with just plain 98 cent ones. Not me!! If I'm going to be on the beach, I want some pretty flip flops. So I found this great file in the Silhouette Store by Sweet Afton. It is file #61095. I cut it the size it is in the file. Well, it turned out pretty big!!! I thought 'Oh No!!!', do I really want to use this as my 'Tag' project. I hunted farther and found this tag shape from Lori Whitlock (file #20378). I wanted something pretty to go on it. I had this Lisa Norris-Goofy Tulip file in my folder. It is file #56399. I decided to use it, cut two without the goofy face. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Then I just decided to show ya'll both of them. I really do love the flip flop tag, even though it is big!!
Hope you are planning on heading over to Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Party to check out what my DT Sisters have made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there, ready the rules for our Linky Parties and then head to your crafty space and create a 'Tag' to link.
Hope ya'll like my tags!!!! :)

Hence the title and theme of the Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge this week. I have the honor of being the hostess. And I challenged my DT Sisters to make a project using a Cricut cut of a dog.

While you are there checking out their projects, read the rules for our challenges in the sidebar. Then get to creating a project and link it up so we can come by, visit and admire your creation.
For my card today I used the Create A Critter cartridge. I cut this cute dog from page 34 at 3 inches. Then I cut the dog house from page 35 at 2 inches. The one on the inside was cut at 1 1/4 inches.
I did a little bit of doodling around the doghouse. The clouds are punches. The sentiments are from the 'Barks and Bones' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Hurry up, get to creating so we can come see what you are up to!!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!!! :)

Keep Calm......

Morning! Are you up and ready for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut and More? Diane has challenged us with a 'Crafters Choice'. Those are always great and easy to do. But there is one catch. You knew there had to be, didn't you? Use at least 2 die cuts on your project. Now that isn't so bad, is it?
I decided to make a gable box for my project. That is my first die cut. It is a Lori Whitlock design. I bought it at the Silhouette Store. It is file #60419. For my second die cut, I cut these cute butterflies from Sarah Bailey. I also purchased this file from the S.S. It is file #57037. I only cut one style of the butterflies in this set. The designer cardstock that I used is from Bo Bunny. The butterflies is the back side of the same that I used for the box. The green is just reg. cardstock. I coated the green in clear Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle. I glued the bottom butterfly to the box and the top one I popped up on one thickness of foam tape. The tag is from a Tiny Tag Metal Die set (3rd die cut here) from My Craft Spot. The sentiment is from the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set also from My Craft Spot. The bow is some ribbon that I crinkled and dyed.
We sure hope you plan on joining us for our challenge this week. We do so love to see your creations. How about heading on over to Exploring Cricut and More and check out the projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Check the rules in the sidebar and then head to your crafty space and create a project using at least 2 die cuts and link it up so we can come by and admire it.

Travel

Are you in the traveling mood? I sure am, but I won't be traveling for a little over 6 weeks. Man that's like forever away!!! We are getting in the travel mood over at Bitten By The Bug 2! Our wonderful DT Sister Pam has challenged us to make a project  to do with travel-any location or transportation. This past week has really been busy at work with the 4th. (Retail-Grocery). Then we had to celebrate the 4th, so that put me trying to come up with a project on shortened time. I decided to go with this camper from Wild Card 2. No imagination here. Just a camper. I know it isn't my best work. Sorry!! I coated the sun in clear Wink of Stella and added a doorknob and a hubcap and added some doodling with my while pen. I didn't even put anything on the inside. I will when I decide who I'm giving it to.
We hope you get in the traveling mood and join us for our challenge!! Head over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sisters made. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and create a travel project.
Hope ya'll like my camper card!!!! :)

Exploring Cricut and More Daily Project

Good Saturday morning everyone!! Hope ya'll had a great Fourth of July! We sure did!! Our daughter and son-in-law host a big bash each year and we headed over after I got off from work. Lots of family, friends and food. So much fun and to end the night, a great fireworks display. We can see the county fireworks from their front porch!
I am really loving all of the box cards that are appearing in SVG files. This one is from the Summer Box Card set from SVG Cuts. It is called Festive House Box Card. I love it. Goes perfect with Fourth of July. And also, as one of the granddaughters said, Presidents Day. I just pulled papers from my stash to make this one. I embossed the leaves of the tree with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder and the trunk with the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder.
Hope you have a great weekend planned. Maybe you can get a little crafting in there somewhere.
Now, if you haven't entered our current challenge yet, you still have time. You have until 10pm, EST tonight to link up a 'Vacation' project using a sign on it.

Have A Great Day!



Morning Crafty Friends!! Are you ready to see what the mid-challenge DT has for you over at Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Parties? Our Linky Party is Many Layers. Create a project that has many layers. I used to mat layers and my cuts on the front. Those rain boots are from the Silhouette Store. They are by Sarah Bailey and are file #15913. I don't have a pair of rain boots, but I wouldn't mind having a pair like these.
The dp is from Bo Bunny-Lemonade Stand 6x6 pad. Love the sunny look of it. I finished off the front with these Enamel Dots from My Mind's Eye-Market Street. The sentiment is from the 'Simply Said' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Hope you plan on joining our Linky Party. You have another week to create a project with 'Many Layers' and link it up. Can't wait to see what you make!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)












Happy Fourth of July


Morning everyone!! It is time for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 and our wonderful DT Sister Michelle has challenged us to make a 'Fourth of July' project this week. I don't usually send out 4th cards, so I had to think about this one. I pulled out my Elmo & Friends Holiday cartridge and found this cute cut of Cookie Monster with his Uncle Sam hat on. I cut it out at 3 inches the first time. Way to small!! So I recut it at 4 1/2 inches. Just perfect for my card and I put an action wobble behind it!! The bg paper is from the Doodlebug Design-Patriotic Parade 6x6 paper pad. You can purchase your own from the Royal Castle Shoppe. The sentiment is from the 'Happy Days' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I finished off my card by adding some Pebbles Candy Dots.
Hope you are planning on heading over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the 'Fourth of July' projects that my DT Sister's have made. Awesomeness for sure!!!!

Vacation

Morning, morning, morning!!! Hope you had a great weekend and are now ready for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut and More. Diane has challenge us to make a 'Vacation' project and use a sign of some kind (stop, beach, gas, etc) on it. I was going to make a layout page, but decided to make a 6x6 card instead. I had won a gift certificate from Peachy Keen Stamps and one of the sets that I bought was the June 2013 'Fun in the Sun' PKSC-18. I just love all of the beach, fish and face stamps in this set. I used my Silhouette Cameo and the SVG file and cut the shapes and then stamped them and colored them with my Copics. The sign is from the Silhouette Store. It is by Sarah Bailey and is file #61543. I ran the post through the Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder. All of the sentiments on the front and the one on the inside are from the 'Fun in the Sun' and 'A Day at the Beach' stamp sets from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Head on over to Exploring Cricut and More and check out the projects that my DT Sisters made. Awesomeness for sure!!!!

Summer Fun

Morning Folks!! Hope you are ready for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Melanie is hosting our challenge this week. She has challenged us to make a 'Summer Fun' project.
Part of the grandkids are going to the beach in a few weeks, so I thought I would make a layout page for them to put a picture of them on the beach on. I am loving using this paper this year. I've used it on a card already, now this layout bg and you will see part of it again soon. It's perfect for the summer/swim projects. For my cuts I used the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge. The title is on page 38 as is the palm tree. They were both cut at 5 inches. The sun is on page 39 and was cut at 3 1/4 inches. The beach ball can be found on page 44 and it was cut at 2 inches. I put the sun and beach ball on an action wobble. The bg paper is open stock from Hobby Lobby and the action wobbles can be bought at The Royal Castle Shoppe.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out what my DT Sisters have made. Awesomeness for sure!! While you are there, look at the rules for our challenges in the side bar. Then head to your crafty space and create a 'Summer Fun' project and link up so we can come by and admire it. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Hope ya'll like my layout page!!!! :)

It is my turn to have the honor to present the daily project at Exploring Cricut and More.
