MPS Challenge/ Design Team Call

Hello Crafters,
When I saw the posting on the Pink Stamper blog I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the challenge. I have been playing with the idea in my head that I wanted to make one of those door hangers for each month of the year. For the challenge, the colours I had to use were pink, brown and green and the cartridge was to be your favourite. After only a second I knew it would not be a January one I made but a February because I wanted to do the cute little love bug from Create a Critter in pink! Honestly, at first it was not turning out how I had pictured it in my head at all but the more I worked on it the better it got, until tada I was in love! :)

Cuts = Create a Critter, except the word 'love' = Home Decor
Background paper from a bulk buy discount bin at a local store, no name brand on it.
All other paper (not kidding) all from my scrap pile! Most is recollections.
The hanging fiber - dollar store pack
Ribbon - Offray
Pink eyelets - Making Memories (pastel pack)
Silver eyelets - Recollections
Pink Lace - Frenchy's (used clothing store) 
Googly eyes - Dollarama  
Glue glitter - Michaels
Bling - Dollarama

You did awesome on the challenge! Wishing you the best! And about the bow. I googled how to tie… now I got it down. I will have to do a video sometime to show ya. Thanks for stopping by! And do take a peek at this cart. That is all I use it for. It's their flowers. Eventually I will use Tinker Bell once I start on our 3rd daughters scrap book but I need to finish our sons first. LOL

Wish you the best on this challenge!!
