Cuttlebug Be Inspired 27

Hello! Wow can you believe it's Wednesday already! This week is going so fast.

It's time for another Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge. Since it is Tax week and some of us are crunching numbers we thought it might be fun to put a different spin on it and play around with numbers.

At first I thought this was gonna be a tough one because I don't have the numbers folder. Then I remembered that Regina from The Cutting Cafe has some cool calenders that were just right for this challenge. I decided to make a Mother's Day card. I know my mom is not with me anymore, but if she were, she would love this card.

I just printed the calender and added the heart with the punched heart over the date. The "mom" is a rub on. I used my Stylized Flowers folder to emboss the white card stock. The flowers and hearts and scalloped circle were all cut with my Cricut. See how nice and evenly spaced the flowers are? I inserted them in the holes I punched with my Threading Water Punch. For a little added pizzaz I pulled out some champagne colored ribbon and cording. Such a nice touch, don't you think?

For a little more eye candy, head on over to the Cuttlebug Challenge site and see what the other talented team members have in store for you. You won't be dissapointed.

While you're at it, we'd love for you to do the challenge with us. Be sure to post a link to your card on the Cuttlebug Challenge site using Mr. Linky. It's super easy to do, that way we can check out your designs.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by to see me. TTFN

Hugs, Becky

I really had to come here and tell you that this is one of my fave cards this week. I adore it! There is just something soothing about the soft colors and an airy feel to the whole composition.

You also have an award o my bog. Maybe you have it from someone else already, but if not I would be glad if you accepted it.
