The challenge this week at Bitten By The Bug 2 is to use the sewing machine on the Heritage cartridge. I got excited about this challenge because I actually have this cartridge and could participate. I love this sewing machine cut...it reminds me of my wonderful vintage Singer Featherweight sewing machine that I was lucky enough to buy at an auction last year. I combined this challenge with this week's sketch challenge at Papertake Weekly Challenge. It has taken me all week to get my card made but I finally have the finished product.

Here is the card that I made this weekend using sketch #119 at Friday Sketchers. The coordinating paper is from a "me & my Big ideas" paper pad. I used a Stampabilities stamp for the sentiment and added Primas, brads, and self-stick gems.
It's Monday and back to work. Weekends are just not long enough. Have a good week everyone.
Here is the card that I made using this week's Unscripted Sketches sketch #72. I wanted to use colors that reminded me of Autumn and I teamed paper from a K & Company paper pad with dark brown cardstock. I used my Stretch Your Imagination cartridge to cut the leaves, then used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to give them some texture and inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink. Lastly, I added mulberry paper flowers fastened with bronze brads. I am very pleased with the way the card turned out.
For this card using Card Patterns sketch #80, I once again went thru my scrap paper and used embossing folders on the solid cardstock. The K & Company butterfly sticker is stacked on top of a flower frenzy.
This week's challenge at Delightful Challenges is to create a card using this challenge -- 2 CUTE 2 SPOOK. Here is my card. I used the following to make the card: solid color cardstock from my stash; Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Halloween ribbon; and hot fix crystals.
