April 2: I am pleased to announce the winner of the drawing for the Two Cats tote. Congratulations to RaiderSoonermom. I have emailed you and hope you will respond soon. Thank you to each of you who visited my blog and left a sweet comment. I do so love your visits.
Happy Monday and Happy Blog Hop. It was Lori's week to chose our challenge and she selected the Paisley cart, and we were to design with one of the two purses. My dear friend Sandi shared some cuts with me as I do not have the Paisley cartridge. In this month end blog hop, perhaps you have arrived from my very talented friend Donna, and I am glad you are here.
Here is my take on the challenge. I loved the papers that Sandi cut the purses from so I used two. A woman can't have too many purses, can she? I added some punch flowers on one purse, some jewels on the other...and just for fun, I threw a pair of beautiful high heel shoes into the mix that I cut from the Tie The Knot cart. And I titled my card "Essentials" because a purse and a pair of good looking girly girl high heels are certainly that...

Since this is a blog hop, I am pleased to offer up this bit of sewing. It's a small tote that features two cutsie kitty cats, some orange rick rack and some eyelet lace. Leave your name here on my blog comments and I will put you in the draw. I will do a random draw on April 2. Please check back after noon on April 2 for the winner. If you are the winner, please email me no later than April 5th. If the winner does not contact me by then, I will draw a new name.
Now, onward and upward. The next talented lady is Susan. Hop over to her blog here and see her wonderful creation. You'll love Susan's blog and creations. ....
Thanks for stopping by.

Cutting Cafe/Easter Card

There are always so many choices when Regina does her printables, one could swim in circles trying to grab on one. You want the whole armful. Meantime, here is a cute little bunny card I did which features a snippet of one of the printables from Cutting Cafe and a small strip of the color Easter Eggs (done with Copics). You can see the choices here. My bunny is from Doodlecharms cartridge and I even used the "border cut" to bring in three sweet baby bunnies.
The card front was embossed with Cuttlebug as were the die cuts and printables. TFL...

Our hostess this week is that oh so talented Susan who has chosen the Sweet Treats cartridge. She asked us to design with the Cake2 cut. All cards are fun to make but somehow when I do a card that is a celebration, featuring cakes, cupcakes, candles, party hats.......well, it just makes it a wee bit more fun. Please visit the BBTB2 blog and take a look at the darling creations our designers presented. While you visit BBTB2 please note that there is a call for new design team members. We have a lot of fun on this team. Meantime, here is my take on the challenge.
Part of my card is from Cutting Cafe background series here. I wanted my card to feature pink and brown so I was grabbing up scrapbin snippets and I had just enough of the pink with brown polka dots to add to the card base and cut out my cake. I used brown paper and the MS Drippy Goo punch for the icing. I used the "card feature" on this cartridge and so I have a card on a card. Another Cutting Cafe sentiment sits inside the cake. I also cut a strawberry from the same cartridge, and the layers have been cut with two MS edge punches.
The candle was white and I used my Copics to stripe it. TFL...

Cutting Cafe/Trees

I love this Cutting Cafe set featuring trees. All sorts. All shapes...Wonderful designs to create with,. I am pleased with my simple little Sweet Home card. I colored in the trees with my Copics, and the sweet little home die is from Don Juan cartridge, the sentiment is cut from Lyrical Letters cartridge. I used a MS edge punch for the top enhanced with a strip from the Cuttlebug embossing folder. I added some score lines with my Scor-It. The base card has also been embossed. Please visit Cutting Cafe here to see the selection of trees. I know you will want some too.

This week our leader, Heather, is the hostess and she asked us to design from Cricut's Stretch Your Imagination. We were asked to use the Flourish die on page 77. This week, as well, we have a really neat sponsor. Technique Tuesday. They sent us this darling little deer stamp. So my card reflects not only the flourish but the cute deer. And a bunch of little flowers, some jewels and a MS butterfly.. I used my wonderful Nestie for the pad. Please stop by the BBTB2 site to admire the designer's cards.

Take a look at the many choices Regina has in this set. TFL....

Shelly is our hostess this week on BBTB2. She selected A Child's Year for our assignment, and she said we could select the boy or girl cut on page 36. I picked the little boy and used the cut as a silhouette. He is tending to a flower and for that I used the green and yellow papers to enhance the setting. Then I placed an embossed Sizzix frame around the child, added some lillies on the frame itself and added a sweet pink MS butterfly glammed up with pink micro beads and a pearl. The edges of the background paper has been edged with a MS punch.
TFL, and do visit Bitten By the Bug2 to see the creations by the designers. I love being on this design team.
