Hello Lovebugs!!
I've missed you! Sorry I skipped out on you last week. I have just been crazy with life!

I'm here with a new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!!

I loved this paper line I used for National Pet Day so much I decided to create a card with some of my scraps. This stamp is one I haven't used in "fur-ever" too! LOL!

Doesn't this Beary Brown Rumple Ribbon look wonderful with this paper line?
I believe the stamp set is by Recollections. I colored it in with watercolor pencils and blended it. I love the added stamped paw prints and how they overlap onto the mat and the background paper both.

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!  

Today is the last day to enter my Fun challenge this month, Cupid's Arrow
so be sure to get your entrys in!! New Challenge will be posted Saturday with our Winner posted Wednesday so be sure to check back!!

  Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #154

Pin It
Hello Divas!!

Time for a new challenge and a new post from us at the Die Cuttin' Divas Design Team!!


 Challenge #154
 Mardi Gras.
Make a Mardi Gras themed project or Mardi Gras Inspired Project
 (music, beads, masks, bright colors, parade, etc)

I have always wanted to go to Mardi Gras in Louisiana.
It's one of my things to do on my bucket list!
  
 I have never really celebrated Mardi Gras and really don't know much about the holiday except for it is celebrated before Lent. And I think they have something called Fat Tuesday where they eat a ton of yummy stuff before they fast on Ash Wednesday. I hope I am close in my thinking and if not please feel free to enlighten me in the comments below. I'd love to learn more!!
 
 I did a search for SVG files on google and found this mask at paperyoga.com. I was able to trace it and cut it out with my Cameo using my SCAL program.

Other items used:
Glitter Cardstock
AC Cardtstock
Wooden Dowel
LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon
Skittles by ABusyBee Aka DoubleClick

Hello Lovebugs!!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Connie here with a new project to share using my favorite LoveBug Creations Products!!

I spent this last weekend away at a scrap retreat and was able to play with my ribbon and mesh!
I really love the way this card turned out. The top of the card reminds me of a curtain on a little girl's princess bedroom window. And just outside a magical unicorn is flying by.


I knotted some "I love Grunge" rumple ribbon around some white Mama's Mesh to give it the Curtain look. The Unicorn piecing was something I received in a swap and it works perfectly here along side these pastel prints.

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!

Yesterday you may have caught a glimpse of my tumbler I made featuring Hello Kitty, It is super cute!! Well today I have some even cuter (if that is even possible) Hello Kitty Yummies!!

Time for a new Monthly challenge here at Connie Can Crop. Be sure to check back Wednesday to see who my big winner for January is!!
 
My Challenge this month:
Cupid's Arrow
This month is all about LOVE! But adding a heart to your creation is just too easy so instead I want you to be sure to include Cupid's Arrow somewhere on your project. That's it!!
It can be on your paper, a stamp, an embellishment like a diecut or even a brad.

Please create one layout, card, or other project. Your layout can be single page or double page. You may use any other products you wish. When you are finished with your project please post it here in this thread.
 
Please remember I will only count two entries per person. (Just to be fair!)
 
Entries are due by Friday, February 28th at 11:59 pm.
 
I will draw one lucky winner from all entries and they will receive an awesome $15 shopping spree with Scraptastical Kreations. Kristy has the cutest SVG files!!
 
You can visit their Shop here and
follow them on Facebook here.
 
  AND don't forget the winner gets
a custom blinkie for you to display on your own blog!! YAY!
 
You need to link your project up below using Mr. Linky. You have until midnight Feb. 28th to link it up.
I will draw one random winner. My winner will not be based on skill or talent, but based on just completing the challenge. Sorry but I can not ship to other countries. I would still love for you to play. However if you win, I may ask that you pay postage for the shipping charges.
