This is a card I've entered in our County Fair. One of the categories is Get Well cards and I wanted to make a fun one.
The image is a digital from Dustin Pike ... I printed the image on a plain piece of card stock, then using the Center Point button on my Cricut, cut the jar around the image using the Doodlecharms cartridge. I colored the 'bug' with Copic markers and then covered the jar with a thin coating of Glossy Accents to make it look glass-like. To make the lid, I cut another jar out of gray paper and snipped off the top, then inked it using a metallic ink. Finally, for the base, I cut another jar from pink card stock using the Shadow feature.
The flowers were cut using the Walk in My Garden cartridge ... I added buttons, twine, some doodling and leaves made using a Martha Stewart punch. All the card stock is from Papertrey Ink and the designer paper is from K and Company. The sentiments were computer generated.
Here's a peek at the inside. I've entered four cards total. I should know the results of the judging this evening. I'll let you know I did ...

Okay, two snails in one day ... I don't know why, it just worked out that way. This one is for the Chirper Challenge. We're to use brown, a zig-zag, and brads. This idea has been floating around in my head for sometime, so I thought I'd put it to good use. The brown and green card stock are from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is digital paper from my Funky Hand cd (have I ever told you how much I love digital paper?). The snail was cut using Walk In My Garden and the tag was cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I found the letter stickers at a discount store and thought the colors were perfect for this paper ... every now and then you just get lucky. I added stitching for my zig-zag, inked the edges and popped on the brads. And, since I have a hard time making a card without ribbon, I tied on a little bow. Kind of reminds me of a bandana. Anyway, this is the last card of the weekend ... back to work tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great week!

Earlier this week, there was a blog hop with the Bitten by the Bug design team. They used the 'freedom' cut from Cricut's Graphically Speaking cartridge. I didn't get mine finished in time for the blog hop, but thought I'd post it anyway. The card base was cut using the Wild Card cartridge at 5 1/4". The cream circle is from George, cut at 4 1/4", and "Freedom" was cut at 3 1/4. The little bear is a colored graphic from Graphic Garden. I covered it with Crystal Accents to give it some dimension. I added a little stitching, some doodling and a ribbon. The flowers are from a sprig of silk flowers I got at a discount store and the leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch. I may have gone a little overboard on the leaves ... I just couldn't seem to stop myself. I've been a slacker this week and haven't left any comments on my favorite blogs, so now I'm off to do a little "blog hopping".Hope you all have a happy and safe holiday weekend.
