A whole new Bitten By The Bug 2!!!!

Well, the week has reached it's end, and I have to go back to reality tomorrow. My first day back to work since before Christmas Eve. I have surely enjoyed my time off! :) There's some exciting news for Bitten By The Bug! Regina, the OH SO TALENTED ladybug that founded Biten By The Bug two and a half years ago, has decided to move on and concentrate on her fabulous business, The Cutting Cafe'. If you haven't checked out Regina's digital stamps, then please do yourself a favor and go have a look around. We were all afraid that Bitten By The Bug was going to dissolve, but the fabulous Heather Binnie stepped up and took over the group, and thus - the birth of Bitten By The Bug 2!!!! Thank you sooo much, Heather! This week, our challenge is from Heather herself, and it's to use the "in style" phrase from the Graphically Speaking cartridge.

This is yet another digital stamp I've had forever from Mo's Digital Stamp Too. And this was the perfect challenge to use her. She's colored with Copic markers. DP is by 3 Bugs in a Rug and cardstock is Bazzill. This is one HEAVY card. I used tons of paper in it. If you click on the pics to take a close look, you'll see tons of layering on this one. And of course the layering is continued on the inside too. I added some machine stitching, and some beautiful silk ribbon, along with a cute purse charm (sorry - can't remember where I got the purse charm. Wish I could cause I need more of them!!).

This card will be for sale in my etsy shop if you happen to be interested. The link is on my side bar. Please be sure and visit Bitten By The Bug 2 to take a peek at the rest of the designers fabulous creations, and please don't forget to congratulate Heather and thank her for keeping this fabulous group together. I would also like to thank Regina SO MUCH for all the years she put into Bitten By The Bug. She's done such a fabulous job, and it truly breaks my heart to see her go. But I know we're going to see some amazing things from her in the near future. Thank you my dear friend. I love you and appreciate you more than you will every know! HUGS!
