Love Stamp - Bitten By The Bug 2 Challenge

Happy Monday My Friends!
I want to first start off by apologizing for being so absent from my blog. My "real job" is pretty much taking over my life right now and I am just too tired too create when I get home due to working lots of hours and now weekends too! I'm hoping sometime in the very near future it will get better and I will return to my daily blogging. So for now, please keep me on your reader's list and I hope to post something here and there.....now and again! :)

Now for this week's BBTB2 challenge. We were asked by the wonderfully talented Marina to use the love stamp from the Sweethearts cartridge. How fun is this cut? I don't have this cartridge yet, so my sweet friend Sherri sent it to me! THANKS girlie! *wink*
I chose to use some yummy Christmas papers, a polka dotted flower, a bit of velvet ribbon and a velvet brad for the flower center....oh and a few clear rhinestones too!
This is one of the tent topper cards, it measures 4" wide and 5 1/2" tall. They still fit in a standard A2 envelope, but they are just a bit more interesting than a plain ole ordinary card is! LOL!
That's about it for now. I hope you can join in on the challenge this week and if you do, please post a link to your card on the BBTB2 blog so we can all see it! Oh! Don't forget to go over and see all the other designer's creations.....they are WONDERFUL!
Keep checking in on me and I hope to see you here again really soon! HUGS for now! See ya!

Pin It!

I love these tent topper cards. You've inspired me, as usual. I'll have to break down and make one. Love all the reds together. I'm sorry to hear that the "real job" is so consuming. Hang in there, it's bound to get better, soon I hope!
