Happy 4th.....EARLY - BBTB Challenge

Oh boy am I glad to have my Internet service's been 4 days without it and I was beginning to have withdrawls....LOL!!! This week Regina from over at the Bitten by the Bug site asked the design team to use the banner from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge.....since the 4th of July is creeping up on us I have been working on my red, white and blue cards. I used some Provocraft and Bazzill papers along with my Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for the hat......I fashioned an Uncle Sam hat from the Magician's hat. The "happy" is from the Cricut Printing Press cartridge, and the scalloped circle is from the Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge. I used Eddie the Eagle to pose as Uncle Sam....he was a stamp of the month by Kim Hughes that I purchased at Cornish Heritage Farms. For final touches I used some Heidi Swapp brads, misc. ribbon, Rain Dots and lots of Cats Eye Chalk Ink for that distressed look. Be sure to pop over and visit the BBTB site for more fun designs and THANKS for stopping in sure to check back for more's AMAZING how much you can get done when you don't have the Internet to distract you...LOL!!!

Pin It!
