The Cuttlebug Spot Make Us Laugh Challenge and the Drive for 5 Contest Sponsored by Custom Crops

This week at the Cuttlebug Spot we're all about making you laugh. I was having a really hard time with this but I happened to be on the Cricut message board and saw a beautiful card by missbliss using a free downloadable image of a fairy reading while sitting on a pile of books. I followed the link to her blog where she had posted a link to the site she had found the image. Click HERE to view all of the fabulous free images by Elizabeth Dulemba. I continued to browse through all of the darling images when I came to this one called (appropriately) "Gotta go". Well I burst out laughing and thought it would make a great image for my Design Team card. So THANK YOU missbliss, you really saved me this week! Be sure to visit her blog HERE.
So now I had the image, but no sentiment and then it came to me in a flash of light. (Well, more like a wave of feeling that I had to go potty). I wanted a sentiment that I could complete using my Cuttlebug. It was done on the computer and the "Hi" was cut from the Friends Forever cardmaking combo. I colored the image with my Copics following the colors on my pretty paper from Sasafras and cut her and the scalloped mat behind using my Nesties on the Cuttlebug. The background paper is cuttled with Swiss Dots, and the turquoise strip is embossed with the folder from With Gratitude combo. The flower is Prima and the little bit of bling is from Darice.
Please stop by The Cuttlebug Spot for a chuckle, the DT cards are loads of fun this week and we'd love to be amused by your creations as well. The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate from Custom Crops. Also, The Cuttlebug Spot is celebrating our new look and has a new contest to boost our followers also sponsored by Custom Crops so be sure to spread the word for a chance to win a $50 certificate. I'd say it's time to start making a wish list, wouldn't you?
