Bitten By The Bug Doodlecharms Border Challenge

Hey yall! TGIF! I am so glad the weekend is here!! I am ready to scrap and spend time with the hubby!!

I did this card for the current challenge at Bitten By The Bug. I really like this blog, but don't participate too much. I don't always have the carts needed to play, but today when I saw the Doodlecharms challenge, I had to play along. I just love it there. It is the most inspiring place! I just bought the Doodlecharms cartridge a few weeks ago, so this is my first project using it. I decided to use the Popsicle border. I cut my Popsicles out in brown and then distressed them with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder. I then cut the top portion of the Popsicle out with some Jenni Bowlin Cherry Pie Paper. I used my brown ink to distress the top a tad. I also added some brown lace and red ribbon. The blue in the background was embossed with the Sizzix Harlequin Texture Plate. Here it is:

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to Harrisburg for the rest of the evening. The hubby actually asked me out on a 'date'!!! LOL. He needs new work boots and then we will go to dinner. Hot date, huh?! Ha ha. I hope all of you have a wonderful evening! I'll be back tomorrow scrappin' to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day!!! Take care!
Pin It!

Hi Aymee

Cute Card. I just recently got doodlecharms myself, but haven't used it. I think we have talked before on the DIYnetwork scrapbook message board a while back. I live in West Tn in the memphis area.

Hope you have a great time Harrisburg tonight on your date. WAYYYYYYYY before I was born, my parents actually lived in Harrisburg when my Dad was in the army (WWII) But they are both from the south like me.

Great Blog, thanks for sharing your talents. I need to break out my doodlecharms cart and get busy.

I love the card! I thought my cd player just randomly started to play when Taylor Dayne came on! I have that in my itunes library and listened to it last night-wow that was weird! Love her too!
