First and foremost I would like to say Hello and welcome to my new followers. It's a pleasure to have you along my journey.
Before I jump into the challenge info I have to say a special THANK YOU to Sarah of Sarah's Blog and Blinkie Designs who just designed my blog and Blinkie...didn't she do an awesome job!
This card was created for the Jitterbuggin challenge- you had to make a card using a BEE or the letter "B" following the provided sketch and use up some scraps. Then I saw it qualified the Cricut Cardz Challenge so I entered...how cool is that.
Well I was hooked from the time I heard scraps...lol. Especially since I never have a shortage of scraps...I need to learn how to throw away more...but it never fails as I throw it away up comes a project it could have been used on. Honestly I had no idea what to do for this challenge. Everyone was using Bee's which was the first thing that popped into my mind but I wanted this project to be different. So since I haven't used my Hello Kitty cart in a while and Halloween is right around the corner, I figured now would be the perfect time. The card didn't take long to make and it was really fun. The hardest part was figuring out which scraps to use (had to make sure there was enough...lol).
The following cartridges were used: Hello Kitty- Kitty, Accent Essentials- circles, Storybook- letters. From Martha Stewart: punch- Double Loop for the 2 corners, glitter glue- lollipop and iridescent glitter- accent circle (ran it through the Xyron upside down, made it so easy to glitter). The orange squares were embossed with the Cuttlebug- Spots and Dots folder.
I didn't realize how many steps this card had until I was typing it out...it doesn't seem that way when I look at it. Hope you like...would love to hear your feedback.
Wow wasn't that a mouth full....hope I didn't bore you. I guess that's happens when you don't post in over a week...sorry.
