Bitten By The Bug 2-Water

Hello!!!! Hope all is going well with ya'll! Over at Bitten By The Bug 2  the challenge that started over there yesterday is 'Water'. Make a water card or project. Now, I know that most people think about swimming, sailing, waterslides, etc. when you hear water. I think-drinking water. Let me explain. Several of us at work have switched from drinking soft drinks to drinking water with Crystal Light in it. Some have been at it for a while, I switched a few months ago. It's hard to drink plain water and the Crystal Light doesn't taste like Kool-Aid (which I do not like). It makes drinking the water really easy. I haven't had a diet Mt. Dew since I switched. I've had tea once and it just didn't taste the same. I'm really enjoying the water and I do drink milk. Sunday when I was at work with another of the water/Crystal Light drinkers, one of our fellow employees came in and said she was getting off the soft drinks and going to the water/Crystal Light and wanted to know which we liked the best. We both agree that the Citrus flavors are the best. And Strawberry right behind that. So when I saw that the theme for their new challenge was water, I knew I just had to make our new recruit a card of encouragement! I used the Block Party Lite cartridge for the glass which I cut at 5.75 inches. (We usually just pour ours into our water bottles), but a glass works, too. I did cut the straw off. And since I designed my card on my Gypsy Girl, I hid the bubbles that were in the glass contents. I used the George cartridge to make my Crystal Light packets. I crimped the ends just a little and hand wrote on them. The sentiment is from the It's All About You stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I made my shaped card using my Cuttlebug and a Spellbinders Grand Labels Four die. I used the size smaller for the bg pieces. Oh, my glass is full of Water with Citrus Crystal Light in it!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

Well, Miss Sharon, I for one am so happy to hear that you've switched over to something a little healthier than diet Mt. Dew. You go, girl!!! How adorable that you made such an encouraging card. Though I'm thinking the Pepsi people wouldn't be too happy about it. LOL I'm a water fanatic. Rarely drink anything but. People make fun of me because they never see me without my water bottle. Thanks for playing along and your fantastic take on our water challenge at BBTB2..
