BBTB2/Plantin Schoolbook/Rick Rack

Winner of the Cat Check Book Cover: I am pleased to give the winner of the draw for the fabric checkbook cover. Congrats to a BBTB2 DT sister, Beth Moore. When we do a regular blog hop at the end of the month for the BBTB2, naturally DT sisters are exempt from the draws on the blog candy. Since this blog candy was a "just because" kinda thing, I tossed the name of all visitors into the draw and up came BETH. So email me, Beth, and I will get this little cat thing mailed off to you.
It was my week as hostess on BBTB2 and I went to one of my fav carts. Plantin Schoolbook. It has so many cute cuts on it, and one that I use frequently is what I call the rick rack cut. This is my card. I used snippets of papers from my scrapbin, I used a sweet Cutting Cafe printable, my wonderful and cherished Cuttlebug for embossing, a punch heart with some buttons, a ribbon adorning the neck of my cute little green and white checkered giraffe (from New Arrival). TFL, and be sure to visit Bitten By The Bug2 for inspiration.

Now, this is a just because Blog Candy offer. I am knee deep in making cute little checkbook covers and camera case wristlets and a few other fabric goodies. Sometimes there are little imperfections in the finished product and this is the case concerning this cute little cat checkbook. If you don't mind carrying a little checkbook that has a wee tiny little blip in it, then leave your name and I will put you in the draw on April 15th. Please check back after 2:30 that day and if your name shows as the winner, please email me with your addie so I can mail it. If I do not hear from the winner by April 17th, then I will draw another name. TFL...
