Forever Young in Shades! BBTB2 Monday Challenge!

 Hello my Lovely Followers of all things Cricut (and now Quick Quotes too!) Welcome to Monday and another Bitten By The Bug 2 weekly challenge and this week is our Fearless Leader Heather's turn to pick the challenge and she picked the Sunglasses from the Forever Young Cartridge. This is a Fun Fun Fun cart and has alot of great images on it and if you all remember, this is the cart I used for my layout for the Cricut DVD series that I won to be featured in! Well anyway I love these old fashioned glasses and I wish I could have found a great picture of my Mom because I remember when I was a kid that she had a pair and I know I have pictures of her with them on. Well since I couldn't find the pics I decided to make a card, well I actually made two cards, lol, I wanted to do bright colors and add the bling because I wanted this to be FUN! And they are Sunglasses soooooooo..........................................    
I also made the lens look like glass by adding a glass finish to make it shiny! Pretty cool huh!? I like the look, what do you think???  
Well all in all these are some pretty simple cards, I welded them in Design Studio, Embossed them with Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder, inked them with Quick Quotes Chalk Ink (love this stuff, lol) popped them, added the bling with my I-Rock, did some doodling and Done! I wanted to do more but I couldn't think of what else I could add so I just "let it be" LOL! You know how hard that was, sometimes I just have to say No and stop while I'm ahead, but it's oh so hard, lol!
Well I sure hope you join us this week over at BBTB2 and check out what all the Amazing Gals on the Design Team created and remember if you don't have the Forever Young cart you can use ANY cart with Sunglasses on them. Link up with Mr. Linky and you could win our cute Pick of The Week (POW) Blinkie to display on your Blog, along with Bragging rights of course! Don't forget to leave me a comment, I love to see your comments and I also have to say Thank You to the gals who have given me some wonderful awards and I haven't forgot about them and please don't think I'm not grateful, I am, I have been really busy at work and even tho that's not an excuse I will acknowledge them this week, it has slowed down and I'll be able to breath again, lol! Have a great week and see you all real soon!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
Theresa
