BBTB2/Rose Thou Art A Rose
BLOG CANDY WINNER:...Congrats to Yoshira of Amo mi Cricut who won the draw on the Rose/Lace Tote. Thanks to all for playing along.... Yoshira, please email me and I will mail the tote to you. Happy Monday....Welcome to BBTB2. June is National Rose Month and our design team sister Glenda asked us to honor that celebration by creating with a rose. I instantly went to Indie Art for my rose. I bought this cartridge long ago mostly for the wonderful butterfly, I love the ice cream cone and there are a few other cuts I've used now and then.... and now I've discovered ...the rose cut. I cut 3 so I had a nice sturdy 3 layer rose. I used my Nestie die cut for the opening of this A2 sized card, and I centered the rose in that space. I've added some red jewels, a red ribbon and one little green jewel for the leaf. I used the word "love" from another standby trusted cartridge, Beyond Birthdays.. The base card in black has been embossed, and I used one of my fave rubber stamps for the inside sentiment that says "I just love you". Such a simple but says-it-all sentiment.
Please join us by submitting your new creation of a rose themed card or project....just be sure to follow our rules for entering the challenge. We love it when you participate in the BBTB2 challenges.... there is such talent around us in this wonderful bloggy world of Cricut.
Now for a little blog candy offer. I sew...a LOT...I am almost frantic in the endeavor to use up the tubs and stacks of fabric, along with tubs of laces, buttons, glorious embellishments... so I make a lot of totes. I just donated a big tub of laces, bias tapes, ribbons and some fabrics to a friend who has jointed the groups all over that make "pillowcase dresses" for some children in Africa. I was so happy they could use these items that were just laying around. I kept out some of the lace for my creations... These little totes are a wonderful handy little fabric creation to tote just about anything...books, iPads, cell phones. Here is a little offering for you ...just join in with your comment and I will put your name in the draw on June 15th by with a random.org drawing. Check back after 2PM that day to see who is the winner of the blog candy. This tote has been sewn with fuschia rose design, it is lined with the same fabrics, the handles were made with a cream solid fabric, the lace is cream, and I have created a multiple layered rose with a sweet silver heart in the center. The little tote is 11-1/2 inches wide and 9 inches deep.
