Bitten by the Bug Blog Hop and some Blog Candy!

Happy Monday to you! This week's Bitten by the Bug challenge was to use the Priceless cut from the Graphically Speaking cartridge. I decided that babies definitely fall into that category! : ) I pulled out this adorable Debbie Mum DP and some Kraft cardstock. I added some glitter to the sentiment, priceless, and inked the edges a bit. I also pulled out my JustRite stamps to create the words, babies are. I cut the circle out with my Nesties and inked those edges too. I tucked it behind the word priceless, added a bit satin bow, and a couple of pretty stick pins to finish it off.


Since it is the end of the month.....you know what that means don't cha? BLOG CANDY! Just a teeny offering this month, but I hope I can pass on these goodies to a good home! What do you have to do? Tell me something you would like to see more of on thee ole' blog here! Consider it a suggestion box if you will! : )

Easy enough right?

And a few more tidbits.......my husband and I LOVED the P!nk concert! She put on such an outstanding show! And who knew that she was so funny? Love her!
On Sunday we headed to Indiana to pick some apples and spend the day together. I actually got a pretty decent picture of my 2 kids........ : )
Where to next? You are heading to Penny's blog now!
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to leave your suggestion before you head out!

Oh dear, I don't wanna go first! But I do want to encourage you so I'll bite the bullet. What do I want to see more of? Just make it more postings. You're on my blog feed so the more you post the more inspiration I get. Love the shaped cards especially. (Saving for a Cricut - the hand drawn thing isn't too pretty!). Thanks for all your efforts!

Sharon Caudle said...

Michele, this card is WAY too cute!! I love the paper you used and the way you did the "babies are" too! Awesome take on the challenge! Love the picture of the kids and you are so LUCKY to get to go see Pink! I really miss going to the apple orchards like when I was a kid with my family. We don't have anything close around here. Too much sand. Oh well...such is life I guess, huh? :) hugs!

Rheannon said...

Priceless indeed... love the bling you added in the tag too. I love your shaped cards. You're so talented I just love to pop in and see what you're working on.

Linda Peterson said...

What a great card! I love to see ideas using paper that already has the pictures on it. Sometimes I need a quick card.

Heather said...

Beautiful card! I love the glitter! I can't think of anything to tell you to add to your blog...I love all the cards you post. I'm always up for instructional videos or just tutorials though, so I guess I'll say either of those since you asked. :)

I think that your blog is cute. The cards are all spectacular. I love color though. Thanks for all the inspiration.

Amy Johnson said...

WHat an adorable card! I love how you didn't use a stamp and you just cut up that gorgeous dp! I never use dp like that cause I don't know what to do with it. Well now I do. Thanks for the inspiration. Love the glitter and how you did the sentiment/ribbon/embellie treatment to. Now, what do I want to see more of? I really can't think of anything other that new ideas or techniques like you've shown today.

Jessica said...

Lovely card! I don't need more of anything, you are inspiration enough! TFS

jessica said...

Debra said...

You always provide great inspiration, so what to see more of is difficult. I love how you always share how you do what you did, what products you used, recipes, etc. Maybe some Christmas inspiration now that we are within 90 days. And, btw, I think it's a GREAT pic of your children, not just "pretty decent". Thanks for sharing your talent!
Debra

Maria said...

Oh Michelle what a great image you have made here...most of all...your children are too darn cute for words...guess I could always ask for more pics of them. I have such a soft heart when it comes to children...your children are precious!

I am just getting into card making and happened upon your blog following a link from another blog. I was scrolling down your page and saw the picture of your beautiful children! I, too, have a daughter with CP (as well as two other children). The challenges are definitely worth the joy she brings into our lives as I'm sure you are aware! My little girl, Madison (we call her "Maddy"), just turned 9 years old last month. I can't wait to explore more and learn about your children. I just wanted to comment how beautiful they both are!
