The Winner is:...Cuttlebugcourt. Congrats to this visitor to my blog ...she has won the white embroidery tee shirt. Thanks to everyone who visited and left sweet comments.
Month end. I love month end because that is when we are able to do a blog hop along with our weekly challenge for BBTB2. This challenge is hosted by that oh so wonderfully talented Donna Mundinger. She has chosen the Sentimentals cartridge and we are to design our creations with the bee.For my blog candy offering, I always dig into some sewing project or some embroidery work. I have this Size SMALL white tee shirt that bears a pretty orange rose design. If you wish to be part of the draw, please leave a comment. I will draw a winner on Friday, April 30. Please check back after noon to see the name of the winner and if your name appears, please email me quickly so I can make arrangements to mail the tee shirt to you. If I do not hear from the winner by May 4, I will draw another name. TFL to each of you, and hop on now to Julia's blog.
I do not have the Sentimentals cart but I do have a lot of bee die cuts to select from. I went to my old standby of so many years (BC..before Cricut), my Sizzix dies. This bee is one of my favorite cuts.
Now, if you began this blog hop at BBTB2, you were directed to sweet Lori to see her project on the challenge. Lori has directed you here to my blog site, and I will direct you to Julia's blog here. Do do do visit all of the designer sites to see what they have created, and to participate in the blog candy they are offering.
Here is my card: I have quite a few Lasting Impressions patterned cardstock which I used to use for the Lasting Impressions Brass embossing dies. I took one 8-1/2x11 sheet of the gold plaid paper and I made two cards from this. I added two sizes of my Nesties and ran them through my Cuttlebug embossing folder. The bee, of course, is from my Sizzix die, and the sentiment was cut from my Just Because cartridge (page 56). I tried the bee die on that page but wasn't thrilled with the final die. I added a jewel for a wee bit of bling for Ms. Bee.
