New Bitten By The Bug challenge plus a Blog Hop!!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend was as nice as mine. The weather here was quite warm, but we're getting ready to have Fall drop smack dab into our laps! It was in the 90's this weekend, and by Wednesday, it's going to be a high of like 63 or so. Wow! What a change! Time to pull out the jackets, that's for sure!

So anyway, on to the reason you popped by! It's time to reveal a new Bitten By The Bug challenge and we're also having our monthly blog hop! YAY! Time for FUN! Regina's challenge this week is to use the "priceless" cut from the Graphically Speaking cartridge. I cut mine with my Expression which I got from Hallmark Scrapbook.com.


I used one of my Tilda's from Magnolia-licious. She is #368 Tilda with bike from the Lazy Summer Days collection. I also used the butterfly background from the Chasing Butterflies collection. I don't see that Diana has that one in stock right now. But I'm sure it will be coming back. The stamps are colored with my Copic markers (pic below - WOOHOO I actually kept them all together and remembered to take a pic!) The PP is by Three bugs in a rug, and the cardstock is Bazzil. The circle and scalloped circles were cut using my Nesties and popped up from the card base. Tilda is double popped. (that sounds funny!) To help soften the graphic feeling of the priceless cut, I punched a small flower, inked the edge just a tad, and then added a Dew Drop to the center.

Now for the fun stuff!! This week I'm giving away a whole bunch of fun! Oh my goodness, I have no idea how many, but there must be hundreds of fun K & Co Halloween die cuts in these baggies of goodness! There's also a package of fun spiders with googly eyes, a roll of purple ribbon with orange dots, and even a bag of miscellaneous charms! (the charms are not Halloween) And I'm not done yet! If you're the winner of my blog candy, I will also purchase your choice of a sheet of cutouts from Peggy Loves Vintage! You can look at them HERE or HERE. You can also see them HERE. If you'd like a chance to win this bundle of spooky goodies (and some not so spooky goodies as well), just leave a comment on this post by midnight Friday night, Oct 2nd. A winner will be chosen next weekend via random.org.

If you arrived here from the amazingly talented Regina's blog, then you're on the right track! She's is the first stop on the hop today. When you're done here, then hop on over to Shelley's blog. There's not a doubt in my mind that she has created something fantabulous for you to look at today! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Have fun!!
