Welcome to our March Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop!   As you know, both the Artiste and the Art Philosophy cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.  If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create.   If you came from Michelle ~ My Flights of Fancy then you are in the right place!
Our challenge this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but also a "BINGO" card!
Here is the BINGO card that our Consultants were given:
The Consultants were told they could  make anything they wanted using the Artiste OR Art Philosophy cartridge AND you work off the BINGO card posted above. Basically, you make a "BINGO" by going across, down, or diagonally and you have to use everything in that bingo line.
For my project I used the Artiste Cartridge and chose this 3D treat box. I also featured Close to My Heart's Chantilly paper pack. I made a quick little tag from scraps left over form decorating the box, some Spring (flowers) and some bling and Cha Ching! All done! I attached the tag with the CTMH burlap ribbon. It's one of my favorite things! The sentiment was stamped on vellum and adhered to the tag, for a little dimension that isn't easy to capture with the camera. I know just who this pretty little treat box will be for!
Your next stop on our "BINGO" hop is Jennifer ~ 4 Hearts Scrapbooking.
