Bitten By The Bug challenge and The Cutting Cafe' blog hop!!

Ready for some fun??? It's time for another Bitten By The Bug Blog Hop!! This week, we're being sponsored by Regina and The Cutting Cafe'. You can get the most awesome downloadable stamps and cutting files from The Cutting Cafe'! And we're giving you the chance to win a set starting today! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before Friday night at midnight. That's all there is to it! I will choose a winner next Saturday via random.org. Want more chances to win different sets from The Cutting Cafe'?? Just follow the blog hop around. Each designer is offering up a different set! How cool is that!!

I am giving away the set "All About Mom"!!! This is a HUGE set that contains soooo many stamps, and they are of course "All About Mom"! They range from any day sentiments like "Let's do lunch" to "Happy Birthday" to Mother's Day. I think you'll really love them, I know I sure do! For this card, I used a beautiful poem from the set that was written by one of our very own Bitten By The Bug designers, Rene'! Isn't that cool?
The challenge this week is to use this frame from the Storybook cartridge. I used Basic Grey paper from the Boxer line and added some Kaiser rhinestones and pearls. The frame is popped up off the card base for dimension. I hope you like it, cause it's the second part of the candy. The winner will also receive this card.
When you're done here, go visit the extremely talented and amazing Kazan for a chance to win a different set from The Cutting Cafe'.

Here's just a quick pic of the inside of the card. Thanks for playing along with our blog hop today, and don't forget to visit the rest of the designers for even more chances to win! Have a great day!
