Bitten By The Bug 2--Hello Kitty!

 This week at Bitten By The Bug 2 was Heather's choice. She chose Kitty in a Santa Suit. You can see all the other fabulous projects my fellow Design Team has made HERE.  Let me first say that I have had both Hello Kitty cartridges since they came out and have NEVER once used them....As I have said before, I am not a cutesy type of person. For the 3rd or 4th time in the last few weeks through different projects for different groups I have had to make things I would never do usually and you know what????!! I am sort of liking these projects :-) After I read that Heather picked Kitty for this week's challenge I groaned....but I LOVE her. She is just adorable and now I'm thinking of a way to use her again without totally admitting I like the cute stuff, LOL!
 I decided to make a Gift Card Holder. The stocking is from Simply Charmed. This project actually came together so quick and easy I was amazed!
Kitty already has a new "home". Traci thought she was just adorable and would be perfect for a gift for someone she had in mind for Christmas and I was happy to hand her over with love.....
Watch back for another post today...
It is a very special day for a boy in my house and he deserves his own post later....


  1. Maria, you may have groaned at the thought of this Kitty die, but I am here to say this is adorable. Somewhere lurking there IS a cutesy side to you. Look at what you created? I love it.

  2. HeeHee! I thought about you the whole time I was doing this project. That's why they call them challenges. LOL You certainly rose to the occasion, girly. This is adorable and pretty soon we'll be calling you the Queen of Cute! ;D xxD

  6. Maria, this is just adorable! I love the whole set. Cute, cute, cute!!!!!

  7. What a great idea, I absolutely LOVE it! So cute! Even if you don't normally do cute, you do it quite well, lol! I absolutely love Hello Kitty (my secret obsession, giggle) and I may have to lift your idea, if you don't mind, it's Purrrrrfect for gift cards, lol!
