Bitten by the Bug Blog Hop & Some Blog Candy!

This week's BBTB Blog Hop is hosted by Regina! She challenged us to use the phone cut from the, In The Kitchen, cartridge. I decided to go traditional and create a black phone. Of course my black phone had to glittery.......cuz I am alllll about the sparkle! (It is a bit hard to see in the photo though.....) I did create a card that can open by using the shadow cut twice, scoring both pieces on the right, and then adhering those scored sides together. I love pink and black together, (as evidenced by my black and pink scrap room!) so I used some old Doodlebug paper for the rotary dial piece and my JustRite stamp set called, Just a Note. I cut the circle with my Spellbinders and airbrushed the center while the die was still in place. I finished it off with a Prima flower/button and a pink bow.

Now for my blog candy...........
Here is what ya get!
1. Brand new Creative Scraps by Crafty Secrets! Can you say deliciously retro?
2. Maya Road Journaling tags
3. doilies
4. Martha Stewart Mica flake glitter.
5. Maya Road Kraft envelopes
6. Gel-a-Tins Stamp set.
Just leave a comment for me and you will be entered into my drawing! If you become a follower or subscribe using Feedblitz I will enter your name in twice. I will print out all the names and have Kyle pull a name randomly by Wednesday night.
Movin' on with the blog hop......your next stop is.............Carole!
