A New BBTB Challenge and A BLOG HOP!

Happy Monday to you all!

Today is BLOG HOP day over at Bitten By The Bug and also since it's Monday, we have a new challenge! This week we are challenged to use the priceless tag from the Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge.
I can think of many things that are priceless, but one thing that is most priceless to me lately is when my youngest calls me from college just to fill me in on his day.....I love that!
Since he left for college, I've been trying to send him a card here and there just to brighten his day and give him something to find in his mailbox too! LOL! I printed the sentiment out using my Printmaster program and the Gilligan's Island font...it was a freebie I found online.
Cute huh? This little phone is from my newest Cricut cartridge, From My Kitchen, I got it from Hallmark Scrapbook.
It's hard to see in the pics, but the big oval behind the phone is embossed with the numbers Cuttlebug folder which I also got at Hallmark Scrapbook.
Now, I know you you were wondering when I would get to the good part! LOL! This is the blog candy I have for you. I have put together a little card making kit. There is enough card making stuff for 5 cards. I have thought of a few more things to add that's not in this pic...so if you win...there will be a surprise for you when it arrives.
I also added two of my world famous recycled frozen dinner box pumpkins for you to play with as well. (NOTE: They aren't really world famous, but it sounded real impressive.....didn't it?) LOL!
All you have to do is leave a comment WITH YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION! You have till Friday October 2nd to leave a comment and then I will draw a name and post the winner on Saturday. After I contact you, you have 3 days to respond and if you don't, then I'll draw another name.
Okay now hop on over to the wonderfully talented Donna Mundinger and check out her excellent works of art, then keep hopping for MORE PRIZES! Oh and be sure to go see all the other wonderful creations that the other BBTB designers came up with this week!
Good Luck! See ya next time! HUGS!

Pin It!

Yeah, I love the BBTB blog hops ... you guys do such great work. DeeDee, this is such a sweet card, especially knowing the story behind it. (I remember how I felt sending my daughter off to college.) Now I need to dust off my GS cart and see what I can come up with.
