From My Kitchen Phone - Bitten By The Bug Challenge and Blog Hop

BLOG CANDY TIME!
Happy Monday Friends!
Today is not only Monday which means a new challenge from Bitten By The Bug, but it's also our monthly Blog Hop time! YAY! The top picture up there is what you could win from ME!
This week the wonderful Ms. Regina herself is hosting the challenge on Bitten By The Bug. She asked us to use the phone from the Cricut From My Kitchen cartridge. Guess what I did? I used my new Gypsy that I got from Hallmark Scrapbook to design it! Woohoo! Oh and speaking of the Gypsy, I made a little informational video with some tips for getting your cartridges loaded and ready to go! You can see it HERE!
I love pink and brown together, so I dug through my scrap bin till I found some pink and brown goodies and put this little "Phone me for coffee?" card together! I love how it turned out!
My sweet friend Sherri sent me some tiny little charms for my birthday and I remembered there was a cell phone in the bunch, so I got it out and used it on my card. I thought it was neat to use the older model phone along with the new age cell phone! Hee hee hee!
This little card is for sale in my Etsy shop if you're interested. This would be a fun card to send to a girl friend or Mama or Sister. She would surely say yes when she saw this card! LOL!
That's all for this weeks new BBTB challenge.

Now, if you are blog hopping you should have arrived from my very special friend Regina Easter, and if you want to keep hopping on to the the next talented lady in line, please go visit the oh so sweet Jennifer Wuthrich and then keep on hopping for even more tries to win some blog candy! If you get lost along the way, you can always refer back to the BBTB site for a list of designers that are participating in the blog hop. Please leave a comment below by Friday at midnight my time for a chance to win my blog candy. I will draw a name and announce the winner on Saturday morning!

One more little bit of exciting news.....I am Guest Designer for Hallmark Scrapbook this week, so hop on over HERE and see what I have posted! Have a lovely day! HUGS!

Gosh oh golly, I get to comment first.... I love your pink and brown card with the telephone, DeeDee. Long ago when I was a teen (LONNNNNG ago) we had those designer colors on the "trimline phones" and mine was PINK. And on my goodness, that darling little cell phone charm is just perfect.
Hugs.
