Bitten By The Bug Mushroom Challenge and Blog Hop

Happy Monday to you all! So are ya blog hoppin' today? GOODIE, cause I've a little something for you too. I'll tell ya more about that in just a bit....let me tell you about the new challenge today first.
Regina over at Bitten By The Bug challenged us to use the mushroom from the Cricut Tinkerbell cartridge. Oh my goodness, I have not used it before now...but I love it to pieces now!
This is a stamp by Kim Hughes...I love those too! Hee hee! The 3 crystals are actually brown if you can't tell. It's hard to photo crystals isn't it?
The card base is Kraft card stock and all the other papers are Basic Grey. I put diamond glaze on the spots of the mushroom to add a bit of extra interest!
Okay, here's the FUN part......the BLOG CANDY! It's a house mouse stamp called It's My Party. Cute huh? I will be throwing some more crafty goodness in too.....but it will be a surprise if you WIN! Now all I need you to do is leave a comment here on this post no later than midnight my time on Saturday June 6th. After you do that, hop on over to Marina's blog and see what blog candy yummies she has to offer up! This is one talented lady, so be sure and soak it all in while your there!
THANKS for visiting me today! HUGS!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TeriBeri!!!!!!! Love ya girlie!

Pin It!
