pass it along with bitten by the bug 2

happy monday!! this week over at bbtb2 our sweet sarah has chosen for us to make a card or project to pass along and make someones day :)  use any cart etc on this one :)
be sure to check out the rest of the dts fantastic projects and be sure to join us we love when you do!

heres my project

to make this i found an old bottle lid and wanted to see what i could do with it. some little unfinished wooden spindels and dowel caps  i found at hobby lobby. i glued 2 together and painted them with acrylic paint.
i filled a bottle cap with dimensional mod podge that i added a drop of alcohol ink to.
i added some moss, twigs and teensie flowers. i used my cricut and happily ever after cartridge for the birds. for the sentiment i used a stamp from mary, of cardztv "simply sad" set.  my printer died an untimely and inconvenient death so  i used my own chicken scratch on the tag.
i thought it would be fun to have the recipient keep this a week then pass it and the envie along. in the envie just add a nice tea (which i did) or piece of yummy chocolate, whatever, then maybe each recipient adding their name either tucked inside or written on outside of the back of the envelope, just let the birdies migrate all over :)
well thanks for putting up with my rambling :) your sweet words always make me smile thanks for that! dont forget to come play along with us at the bug2 :) happy crafting!xxxshelly
