A Blog Hop & Blog Candy!

It's that time of the month again.....for the BBTB blog hop! This week's design was to use the "couple" cut from the Going Places cartridge. I decided to create an anniversary/wedding card with it. I used vintage book paper for the couple and distressed their edges with black ink. The paper is SU! and Basic Grey. I added a few pops of red for interest with the heart and brads. I used a part of the sentiment from the JustRite Something Sweet Set. (Not yet released because it is actually a Christmas set) I used two different circular Nesties to cut it out. I cut the ends to look like a banner. I couldn't get my sewing machine to actually sew on the card ( I think something to do with the tension), so I just used it to pierce the card stock.

I am giving a few summer treats away to one lucky winner. This is what you will get:

What do you have to do? Just leave a comment for me! If you want a second chance to win, become a follower or a subscriber to my blog and I will put your name in the "hat" twice! : )
