A new challenge from Bitten By The Bug and a new BLOG HOP!

Happy Monday everyone. Sure hope you had a wonderful weekend! Monday means it's time for another Bitten By The Bug challenge, and this week we're having a blog hop. YAY! More opportunities for you to win some fun stuff! First things first. The new challenge to you this week is to use the mushroom cut from the Tinker Bell cartridge. What a cute cut! You know I bought this cartridge, and didn't think I'd ever use it. But I'm really glad now I have it! It's got some great cuts on it, not just Tinker Bell and her friends. I got mine from Hallmark Scrapbook.

The DP is Bo Bunny that I've been hoarding. :0) And the cardstock is Bazzill. Isn't that little fairy just the cutest? I went looking for a certain type of fairy to go with my mushroom, and I finally found her. She was exactly what I was looking for. She's a downloadable from Dustin Pike, and I love her! She's colored with my Copic markers.

The sentiment is computer generated and then cut out with my Nestabilities, and the swirl was cut with a Sizzix die and then cut and pieced so they fell where I wanted them. I was trying to portray some "birthday wishes" swirling from her, so I covered them with stickles, along with her wand. Lots of machine stitching on this one, too. I just wanted a very whimsical, cute birthday card for a very special friend that is celebrating her birthday today. *wink* Sorry it's going to be a little late, ladybug!



And finally, this is what is up for grabs right here. There will be an assortment of stamped images, some yummy ribbon, fun buttons, clips, and shaped buttons, and a scrumptious package of Basic Grey glazed brads. Just leave me a comment on this post for a chance to win. You have until midnight June 5th (Friday), and then I will pull a winner via random.org next weekend. Now, whatcha waiting for??? Leave your comment here, and then hop right on over to Kazan to see the fabulous creation she came up with for this challenge, and for even more chances to win some fun stuff!! Good luck and thanks for joining our blog hop today! Hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!

Very cute! Nice detail too!

me-bear said...

Great mushroom card and the fairy is cute indeed. A bit "rough" which makes her adorable. Can imagine how this could be a quite clumsy fairy, unlike her perfect sisters. But just the way she is, makes her a great friend and so she is loved in the woods... Sorry, my imagination just flew away with me... ;)
