BBTB Telephone Challenge and Blog Hop



Well it's the last Monday of the month which means it's Blog Hop time for Bitten by the Bug. If you just happened upon this post and you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop click HERE. And if you've arrived from the sweet and wonderfully talented Sharon's blog you' re on the right track. This week Regina has chosen the telephone cut on the From My Kitchen cartridge. All I could think of was a child worrying about being on the "naughty" list and trying to call Santa to explain.

I made a shaped front card using the telephone, holly from Joys of the Season, and the font from Winter Woodland welded to a rectangle from George. The cord is wired ribbon I got at M's.




Here are the dimensional views of the popped layers.

I'm offering some of my favorite embellies from K & Co. as well as some holiday Raindots as blog candy. (OOPS!, guess you have to turn your head sideways to see it, huh? Sorry about that, but I'm too tired to fix it right now.) All you have to do to be eligible is leave a comment on this post. My DH will draw a name on Saturday morning. Now you're off to view the fabulous Michelle's blog. Her work is awesome so you are in for a real treat. Enjoy the rest of the hop!
