Yea, it's Monday and time for another challenge at BBTB2. My dear friend and co-leader Carole has chosen the adorable caterpillar from Walk in my Garden for our challenge this week but as you know, you may join our challenge using any similar cut as long as it's a new project. This is one of the first cartridges I ever purchased and it's still one of my faves. My hungry little guy is on a branch from Live Simply (which actually has a different worm on it which I hid with the shadow of the other caterpillar in Design Studio). I've added another flower and leaf to make it easier to weld the sentiment from another oldie cart, Paper Pups.
The whole shebang is welded to a rectangle from George to make a shaped front card. the fun dotty paper peeking through is from BoBunny. I've done a bit of embossing for interest (Tiny Mosaic on the leaves and Swiss Dots on the flowers) and some button centers with adhesive beads filling the holes instead of thread.
Not so much dimension this week, guys. To be honest, I was nursing the mother of all hangovers (both wine AND food) yesterday from our belated Christmas dinner I prepared for our BFF's who were away for the holidays (No, I'm always a last minute kinda gal. Yes, it's one of my resolutions, but don't hold your breath.) so this is what you get. LOL Although I'm really happy with the results of the resolution I actually started in October to eat healthier, exercise more and stop thinking of wine as a separate food group, when you do fall off the wagon, you hit HARD!
My little guy is happily munching on one of the delectable flowers which leads me to the inside sentiment. It actually was inspired by one of my favorite cards by Kris Lancaster, posted on the Cricut Message Board in 2008 or 2009. Kris hasn't been crafting much these days, and I sure miss her. She always cracked me up!
The open design of the shaped front didn't leave much room for a sentiment without it showing through so I used my Dymo label maker and voila! My DT sisters have a ton of inspiration for you this week so be sure and stop by BBTB2 and check it out. And remember, the challenges run for 2 weeks so you still have time for the Ice Skate challenge as well. See ya there.
