Hi Everyone and Happy Monday November 1st! Can you believe it, Already! Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween. Well Mondays always bring the new challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2 and this week is no different, lol! This week is Reader's choice and the Reader's wanted to see the Flourishes on the Cindy Loo Cartridge. We used a specific one on page 40, flourish3. Now if you don't have this cart there are plenty of beautiful ones on many other cartridges. I love the flourishes and that is one of the reasons that I buy half of the carts I have, because of the flourishes or the flowers, lol! I have just gotten the Cindy Loo cart about a month ago and I LOVE IT! It is definitely one of my favs. (Actually one of the layouts I did that is going to be published was made with Just the Cindy Loo cart!)
Well I have been making these wonderful Pumpkins out of old recycled sweaters (I got the idea from one of my favorite blogs, 612 Riverside, you should check out her blog if you like vintage goodies and she actually said she got the idea from a blog called Hummadeedledee Blog, I want to give credit where credit is due so actually I will give credit to both Gals and we all just added our own unique twist to them, lol!) If I get enough requests I will try and do a tutorial for you all.
Well lets get back to the challenge.........................
For my tag I used the Wild Card Cartridge and the the Flourish is from Cindy Loo. This was actually a really easy one for me this week since I have been making these cute Pumpkins and I wanted to feature them and I will be giving these as gifts this year to family, (we go to Ohio for Thanksgiving and I like to bring goodies since we don't do the whole Christmas thing, except for the Kids!) so I'm adding the tags and I will be able to write on the inside of them.
I made the Dictionary Flowers with a punch and got the directions from a Tim Holtz video. The little flowers are a punch and added the bling (gotta have the Bling, lol!) The leaves are some silk leaves I've had and the Acorns are from my daily walk out here in the country. We have so many different types of trees out here and all different types of acorns and nut trees out here. (Walnuts, Pecans, Chestnuts, Hickory, Buckeyes and I'm sure many more that I'm still learning) We also have many different types of Evergreens on our property also so that means plenty of pine cones so I had to add a little bit of my own personal touches to these little Gems!
I sure hope you will join us this week with your Flourishes and link your projects back to BBTB2 with Mr. Linky and you could win the fun Weekly Project Winner Blinkie for you to add to your Blog with Bragging Rights too Of Course, LOL! Hope you enjoy and please, let me know if you would like a tutorial on these fun Pumpkins and I'll see what I can do!
((Hugs)) Take Care and Have A Wonderful Week!
