Bitten by the Bug 2
So over at BBTB2 our Sweet Caroline (dun dun dun)
sorry a little Neil Diamond is on the brain :)
Yes, the most talented Caroline has issued us
all the challenge to use a pumpkin on our projects


Challenge #236 Sketch Challenge

~This Weeks Challenge~
Sketch Challenge

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut
on your project and if it's not obvious,
let us know what cartridge you used.

Now for my project after
combining the two :)
I have never used the pumpkin from Freshly Picked,
so I wanted to give it a try.

I really love the leaf/stem on this cut.

I inked around all the edges with
various colors of ColorBox Chalk Ink.

My paper is from My Mind's Eye and
the pearls are from Recollections.

The sentiment is from CardzTV "Many Thanks" stamp set -
LOVE LOVE LOVE this set!!!
And I stamped it with Frost White Colorbox Pigment Ink

I am also going to enter this in over at

I hope that you will join us over at BBTB2 and FCCB this week!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
