We are a great Pear and Winner!!!!!

Hello Everyone,
Happy Monday!! I hope everyone had a great weekend!! I had a great time last week joining BugBites with her newly release stamp set called ALL YEAR ROUND. If you did not get a chance to visit her blog last week, she is revealing the set today. So, be sure to stop HERE and check it out. You will love her set!! I would highly recommend this set~you will find sentiments that are for winter, spring, summer, fall as well as some in between things. Great set to have:)

I would like to share a card that I made using the Lacy Labels cartridge. I cut this shaped card at 4.23 x 11.60 using my gypsy and the base layer at 3.91 x 5.57. The fruit was cut at 4" from the Nate's ABC cartridge and the layers. The sentiment~We are a great pear~ is from Joy's Life~Yummy Pun Stamps.

 I did a little embossing on some of the layers, added a few buttons and a pretty bow. One of the challenges was to use an adhesive glue dot or strip and add glitter to it. Do you see that I added the glue dots to the cherries then added glitter...kind of different, ha?
I am entering this in the following challenges:

1.) Cas-ual Fridays ~Challenge#14~Add glitter to your project using glue dot or strip
2.) Cricut 360 ~#6~Refreshing
3.) Cricut Cardz ~Challenge#86~Tuitti Fruitti

It was a busy weekend with blog hops as well. I hope you got some fun ideas and inspiration. I had a blast playing in Cre8tivegirls Blogoversary Blog Hop. Now for the winner of my giveaway selected by is:
