A Case of the Vapors?

Hello friends!  Welcome to the weekly Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut Challenge!  This week my dear design team member, Emily, the owner of Mollie's Motif Blog, selected our challenge theme.  Emily challenged the DT to create Get Well cards!  I came out of wedding land long enough to design and assemble this fun Hello Kitty get well card!

Anyone who knows me, know that I do indeed love Hello Kitty.  Look at her tucked into her bed in her PJs and night cap.  Poor Kitty is feeling a bit under the weather!   I used three Cricut cartridges to create my HK card:  Hello Kitty Greetings, Artiste, and Billionaire.  I used a new line of Close To My Heart card stock - it officially comes out on February first - to create the cuts for the card.  I will be telling you more about the new products in the coming weeks!

I decided that Hello Kitty, being the southern belle kitty that she is, would not admit to really being ill; she claims to have A Case of the Vapors!  Poor Kitty.  I cut the "case of the vapors" phrase with the Billionaire cartridge, and I cut the banner with Artiste.

Like most of our weekly challenges, the Bitten by the Bug 2 Design Team and I invite you to join us in this week's challenge.  Create your own Cricut cut Get Well card and share it with us at the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog!

Things in wedding land - where my head is most of the time these days, is progressing nicely.  We purchased Bethany's bridal gown last week!  She looked so beautiful and so happy!  She also selected her bridesmaids dresses and the maids have begun purchasing.  And on top of that, I lucked upon a dress that I love!  So, our dresses are all taken care of!

I have been working on designing invitations... I think we are on design number 6 now!  I finally have an invitation that I truly love and I cannot wait to share it with Bethany.

I will try to keep you posted on the wedding progress, but of course I cannot show you any of the crafted items until this summer!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Do take time to go by BBTB2 and check out the great Get Well cards that the design team created!
