BBtB2 purse challenge

At Bitten By The Bug2 blog you were to use the purse cut on the Paisley cart - I do not have but they were gracious enough to let us use any. So I used the bag/purse cut on Plantin Schoolbook cut at 6"

The butterfly is a Sizzix Embosslit from SU which I used a clear covering on to make it shiny
The flowers is a punch

Allsorts and 2 Cute Rubber Stamps

I made these for my kids and husband for Easter. They are filled all sorts of chocolates.
At Allsorts - we had to alter something, these boxes are sturdy and are great gift boxes too so I covered a macaroni and cheese box and added this adorable free digi from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps
I used Liquid Embossing clear gloss finish on the lollipops, you may have to click on the picture to see the gloss.

BBtB2 and GS#31 Birthday Card

I love this layout from Get Sketchy that I used for the BBtB2 birthday cake challenge
The cake is cut at 3 1/2" from Designer's Calendar Cricut cartridge as well as the corner sentiment at 1 1/2".
The star is punched from a large Marvy punch, the circle frame is cut using my Coluzzle

Thinking of you

Created this card to send this weekend for the upcoming Easter Holiday buy cutting the little girl from A Child's Year Cricut cartridge. Sentiment from Stampendous and flowers by Prima. I cut the circle with my Coluzzle.
Used the layout from Lili of the Valley and Paper Cutz challenge was no bunnies.



Used a Child's Year for the children skating, cut the aperture with my Coluzzle and they nestled inside.
I embossed the Martha Stewart snowflakes and the frame using my Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The JOY stamp is from Stampin' Up as well as the punched mat. All mounted on foam squares.
Followed the sketch at Polka Doodles and the theme from CSAYL and card type - aperture at

I made the top 3 at Sisterhood of crafters

'The Sisterhood' for my St Patrick Day Side stair step card that I made my daughter. Wahoo!

Tags - vintage feel

I was blog hopping last night and I saw a post of some beautiful tags, so I wanted to give it a try.
I did simpler version, took a large script stamp and inked it with my Rust Adirondack ink, I like the color on the craft card stock.
I took various stamp colors and inked the out side to give it the vintage look.
I had been saving up the negative version of my Cricut cuts just for this project especially the bird and heart (When I saw Daring Cardmaker wanted a bird used on their challenge... I knew I wanted to do use my negative and then is snow balled into tags - and I couldn't stop after one and two)
I added some twine and a charm.
I plan on adding glitter - but I had to baby sit and wanted to post these tonight.

please let me know what you think - I may remove the charm... will sleep on it and probably add the glitter tomorrow and re-post.

My next blog candy - one of these will make it to the pile - so stay tuned!
