The Cuttlebug Spot You're Invited Challenge and a Blog Award

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we focused on invitations of any kind. I went back and forth on what I wanted to do and finally settled on a shower because I wanted to use the little umbrella folder from the Sizzix Baby set. I embossed it in both pink and blue and cut them out by hand. I popped them on a strip of card stock cut with my MS border punch and embossed with a Cuttlebug border folder from the Frills set. I used raindots to embellish and tied sheer little bows. The background paper is cuttled with Swiss Dots (surprise surprise).

The sentiment is from the Cuttlebug Welcome Baby card making combo cut twice and the flower is from the With Gratitude set. The adorable raindrops are also raindots (say that 3 times fast LOL) all atop a Labels 4 Nestie. You've got to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot to see the fun variety of invitations made by my DT sisters and please play along. Custom Crops has offered a $20 gift card for one lucky random participant.

I also received this lovely blog award form my dear friend and Cutting Cafe Design Team sister from across the pond Tracy. Be sure to stop by Tracy's blog to see all of the wonderful things she creates. Thank you so much Tracy it is truly an honor.
