29 Again? - Bitten By The Bug Challenge and Blog Hop

Hello there! Today is challenge day over at Bitten By The Bug and also we are doing a BLOG HOP with prizes! See that little set of cards up there all done up in a big pink bow? That's what you will win if you are the lucky winner at my stop! Woohoo! There are 3 cards with envelopes in a nifty little clear acrylic box all handmade by ME just for YOU! See deets below on how to win!

Now, on to my challenge card. This week Regina asks us to use the ribbon cut from Cricut's Paper Pups cartridge. I have not ever used this cut before, but I'm glad I have now!
This is a birthday card I made for my cousin. She is 11 days younger than I am and we always joke about who's older before we both become the same age again. So I thought I'd make her a funny card this year.
Since our birthday is in August and our birthstone is Peridot, I used some yummy green rhinestones all the way around the ribbon top. I also used Diamond glaze on the lettering.
Here's the inside of the card. If you zoom in, you can see that I glittered the lettering on the "me too!" Those little flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch...it punches two small and one large flower each time.....love it!
The top circle was made using one of the 100s of digi stamps you can find over at The Cutting Cafe'.
That's about it for this little "Smart Alic" card...LOL...I hope you can join in on the challenge with us this week. Be sure to visit the BBTB site to see all the lovely creations the other designers made this week. If you arrived here from Donna Mundinger's blog, then you are hopping in order. If not, start at the BBTB site and be sure to start at the top so you'll have a chance to win more prizes.
OKAY...for your chance to win the card set at the very tippy top of this post.....Please leave a comment and give me your favorite quick snack......details please! My favorite is fresh veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers and carrots) dipped in peppercorn ranch dressing...YUM! Your entries must be in by Friday, September 4th at midnight. I will draw a name on Saturday morning and post the winner then! Now then, hop on over to Kazan Clark's blog, you will be thrilled beyond amazement with her works of art...she's one talented chica! Till next time, HUGS & Smoochies!

Jennifer Pellegrino said...

I love the green rhinestones-not just because they are pretty but because they have sentimental meaning behind them. She'll know when she sees the colors too. Hmmm....my favorite snack is a plate of sliced fresh italian bread(like bruschetta slices) pile on crumbled feta cheese,add a chunk of onion,drizzle with evoo then top w/cracked black pepper. complete with a York peppermint patty-to rid the onion breath!
