Bitten By the Bug Contest

Regina Easter has a new contest on her blog Bitten by the Bug. For this contest, she is asking for a shaped card using the cricut and any shape from any cartridge. For details and examples, go to I came up with a princess crown card for my friend.

I used the Happily Ever After cartridge and cut the crown at 4 1/2 inches. I inked the edges. I sewed "princess" using the Bazzill In Stitches templates. Miscellaneous rhinestones were used. I used CTMH stamps and some Bo Bunny rub-ons. The paper is from Paper Popsicles, the Time To kit from December.

Got a Fun Suprise on my blog...

I got this very nice surprise from Wendy who I've had fun chatting with over at Paper Popsicles and The Scrap City... It's a "You Made My Day" Award. I feel so honored and I am truly surprised to get such a cute and fun award. Here is the idea:

"Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about blogland! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on. Beware! You may get the award several times!"


Wendy (right back at you!)

don't know too many blogs and there are so many that I really enjoy to visit.

Happy New Year!!!!

Now that 2007 is tucked safely behind us, it is time to look forward to the new adventures that await us in 2008! Every New Year's Day, our family celebrates with a special meal of fondue. This is truely a labor of love. If you are hungry, you learn to settle down and be patient because this meal takes a long time to cook and to eat. We always start off with homemade cheese fondue (YUM!). We dip french bread into the cheese. The main course is shrimp, chicken, and beef. We also batter mushrooms and onions. The dessert is chocolate fondue with cookies, strawberries, bananas, pretzels, and marshmellows. The house smells like a gynormous fry daddy by the time we are done! We toast to the new year with sparkling grape juice and even allow the kids to use our wine glasses! We truly look forward to this annual tradition and every year it gets better and better as we master the art of fondue!
