BBTB - Pear Challenge

At the Bitten by the Bug site, we were challenged to use the pear on the home accents cartridge. Well, once again, I don't have that cartridge, and once again, the wonderful DeeDee came to my rescue and sent me the cut. Thanks DeeDee! I have to tell you, my card really pales in comparison to what the other designers created. You have got to check out what everyone made using this pear. Everyone was really inspired by the cut!


I used some My Mind's Eye papers from a slab that I got at Hobby Lobby. I distressed all the paper edges, and I chalked the edges of the pear. I stamped a $1 acrylic "thank you" stamp and detail cut it for my sentiment. I sewed on three very pretty buttons.

I'm so disappointed by the Chicago Cubs. They really went down, being swept by the Dodgers. They didn't even put up a fight. Disappointing to say the least, but then again, Chicago Cubs fans are used to being disappointed. The White Sox are still alive, so let's see what they do the rest of the post season.

I have to get organized today. I feel like I have tons of things to do, but I never seem to get them done. I'm going to prioritize, and try to get organized! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Happy Monday, and thanks for stopping by!
