BBTB2/Down On The Farm

Welcome to the Monday post for Bitten By  The Bug 2. Our talented and beautiful hostess, Krista, has asked us to design with a farm animal in mind.  I love my  carts that have such darling animals but I went to Create A Critter to design this gate fold card.  I love this little cow and barn and gate fold card designs are so much fun.  Everything is cut from  CAC except for the little sun punch.  Of course the card is heavy with embossing.... and a little jewel is on the sun. 


We hope that you will join in on our challenge for the Farm Animal theme...just be sure to read our challenge rules printed at the very top of our blog.  I find now and then that someone has posted a card and they forgot to give a shout out to BBTB2 challenge, I always hope to find the mention of which cartridge is used but now and then I find  that is left out... I find and grit my teeth when I run into a blog that still has Word Verification enabled.  When I encounter that, I will try one time to get thru those wavy difficult words, and if I cannot (which is almost always the case) I usually try to email the visitor and ask them to disable WV, but I am never able to leave a comment.

Saturday, July 28th was my 75th birthday...and I spent the day at the Creative Memories All Day Scrapbooking Workshop.  This is a monthly event I have been involved in for almost 14 years.  I am the resident photographer and I have kept a scrapbook for the event all these years.  This Saturday was the last workshop.  A few of the gals will now come to my house and we will have fun scrapbooking and visiting but sadly I will not be prepared the most wonderful meal that we have enjoyed over the years by the hostess' husband.  I am good at calling for Pizza delivery..

At the end of this week we are ready to greet the month of August.  I will be creating in my brand new craft room, opening drawers and closets trying to find where I put one of my sweet tools and supplies.  It's a fun adventure and eventually I will know where everything is.
