Scrappin With My Bug Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi everyone and welcome to Michelle's Birthday Blog Hop! First of all, let me thank her for letting me be a part of such an awesome line up. As many of you know, Michelle is my Cricut Circle Sister! While the "program" is no longer in effect, she will always be my sister and I am so excited because I get to personally meet her in June! YAY!! :D

Second of all, HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!! Seriously, she could not be anymore sweeter or talented. If you haven't done so, check out her blog:HERE! She really is AWESOME and cannot possibly speak more highly of her. SHE'S JUST GREAT!! :))



For my project, I wanted to make a card and use what else, one of Michelle (and mine!) favorite things, the Cricut! :)



This card I believe is 5x7 and it's got pink and white bases cut down to size. I made a "rosette" (remember how obsessed i've been?! See Rosette Button Post if you don't remember! LOL It's not perfect but i'm learning! Then I added a cupcake cut from Sweet Treats (one of my fave!), ran the bottom through my xyron, added some glitter then used glossy accents on the cupcake itself. I just love glossy accents because it really makes it pop! I then ran my pink base through my swirly dots Cuttlebug folder on my Cuttlebug (which is now PINK!)hahaha and then added some ribbon. I used the Hapy Birthday sentiment from the Bella stamp set I have had since I was pregnant almost 2 years ago! :)

Now what is a blog hop without a prize? The ladies here are all giving out some wonderful prizes but I will be giving out your choice of either a Green or Orange Silicone Gypsy cover! How awesome is that?! Let me tell you, my Gypsy never goes without a cover!



Remember, all you have to do is leave me a comment and I LOVE followers! And I wouldn't want any of you to miss out on my adventures with a PAINT CAN! hahahaha :) Ever since my husband painted my machines PINK (love), I have been walking around the house wanting to paint more stuff my signature color! So far I have had someone dare me to do my Cuttlebug which I did but I will post it later because today is ALL ABOUT MICHELLE! :))

On to your next stop: Crazy about Cricut
