Happy birthday yellow rose card! made using the Creative Cards cartridge.

  Hello, friends!

 Today is the Bitten By Bug 2 challenge day. This week's challenge is using a the card feature from any cartridge. I chose the Creative Cards cartridge because I am totally in love with it!

Now, for the beautiful rose I used the March stamp of the month. If you want to get your hands on this stamp set you only have 6 more days and then it is gone! Believe me you do not want to miss out this beautiful set. I will be using this once it is no longer available, so if you like to craft along with me snag this set! If you place an order of $50 or more this stamp set is only $5!

I used the Chantilly paper pack for the patterned paper. The sentiment is from the Joyful Birthday stamp set.

I painted the adhesive pearls with a twilight marker to achieve the color I wanted.

For the gems I used Green and Blue epoxy stickers from Close To My Heart.


This week's giveaway is a Anna Griffin cuttlebug folder bundle! There is a total of 8 folders (4 border, 5" x 7", and 2 A2).







To win:
1) Follow this blog or subscribe via email.
2) Leave a comment under one or all posts this week for maximum chances. See HERE if you don't know how to leave a comment. 



Now don't forget that about the AWESOME March Hostess Rewards special. Don't have enough for a $250 order? No problem! Just see if you can round up orders from friends and then you can be the hostess. If you have interested friends, but need catalogs for them, let me know. I will give everyone in your 'party' a free catalog. This is a good chance to get a bunch of free stuff, so don't miss this opportunity!


 March specials!
Hostesses earn more rewards in March because when a Gathering reaches $250 or more in sales, the hostess jumps up to the next Hostess Rewards and Hostess Rewards Plus! levels. Now that’s a reason to jump for joy!
*Shipping/handling and tax applies. Only Gatherings with a total of $250 or more will qualify for the jump in Hostess Rewards or Hostess Rewards Plus!. Qualifying hostesses will receive Hostess Rewards from one level only—the level that is one higher than their sales total.
Dates: Offer valid March 1–31, 2013.

Get this Stamp of the Month set for just $5 (S1303A) when you place an order of $50 or more.

I would love to win the Anna Griffin folders, haven't been able to find them. Love Anna's products, have so much of her products already. I almost bought the bundle on HSN, but already have 3 other embossing machines.
