I've Been Bitten By The Bug 2!!!

I have such exciting NEWS! 
I have been asked to join the Bitten By The Bug 2 Design Team!! 
I have been following these incredibly talented ladies for so long and am totally HONORED that they have asked me to join them!

This Design Team is right up my alley. It is a Challenge Team and if there is one thing I LOVE is to be challenged! For my first week they really got me. Create a Critter--not one of my favorite cartridges. Although I think the images are really cute, I am not the cutesy type of person--so this was quite the challenge for me! We were instructed to use the dog (the one with the fire hat). I have to thank my husband because while I was wining about a dog with a fire hat and what to make he said "How about something that says, You Light My Fire--you still light mine!" What a husband I have, huh?? :-) So, he was my inspiration. In addition to the dog, I took the dog house from the cartridge and welded two together to make the card base on my Gypsy. I also welded the words Light My Fire into the top layer of the dog house.
Although hard to see in the picture, to add a little texture to my dogs I pulled out that 3M Post-it Craft Paper from my project last week. I used Doodlebug Flocking to add fur. When I put the paper down on my cutting mat I put it wrong side up so I could peel the backing away and add the flocking. SO super easy! 
So here is to many weeks with these ladies.
I accept the challenge!
and.....Thank You to the little ANGEL on my shoulder who helped make this happen!
I am so very grateful for you!
