Hieveryone. I know it probably appears that I’m slacking here, but I’m not – honest!!! I’ve been working on a set of 5 coordinated items that I can’t share right now. They were requested by a magazine, so let’s hope they put them in. If and when that happens, you’ll be the first to know and see — LOL. Plus I’ve got swap cards to do today, and our fearless swap leader doesn’t want us posting those until they have been received by all, so that’ll be coming in a week or two.

So, since I have nothing new to show you, I had an idea (always have ideas – LOL!!!) My mind is still on the Cuttlebug, so I’ve pulled up two of my oldest and most popular Cuttlebugged cards for you to see today. But, even better than that, you won’t believe what I found in the galleries at SCS yesterday — it was like hitting the jackpot!!! You all know Michelle Zindorf? Current Dirty Girl at SCS, Queen of the Brayer — well, she’s been holding out on us — she is also Queen of the Cuttlebug. Look at this beauty I spotted in her gallery done back in September, 2007. Isn’t it fabulous!!! That is what I wanted to try todofor youtoday and post, but just couldn’t find the time. So, WHY DON’T YOU GIRLS do some cards like this, post them to your Blogs or SCS, and link them back here. Then I can check them all out and have a ton of good ideas when I finally get to it — does that sound like fun??? I think so!!! Also, be sure to drop in on Michelle’s card and let her know if you liked it/cased it. We’ll consider this a mini, mid-week challenge!!!


This is a card I did back in April, 2007. I taught classes doing this card. Super simple and quick. I used a corsage pin from Michaels as it was before I had the Pretties Kit, but wouldn’t a pin from the Pretties Kit look wonderful in there? You can check out the supplies on the SCS upload here.


This card was done in January, 2007 for an SCS challenge. Love all the texture the Cuttlebugging lends!!! You can read the deatils/supplies on my SCS upload here.

OK, that’s it — thanks much for being patient with me when I have nothing to share — appreciate that!!! Now, go ahead and try a Cuttlebug card like Michelle’s linked above — I’m so anxious to see what you can do!!! I’ll have my regular Stamp Simply Challenge posted tomorrow morning!!! Thanks for stopping in!!!
