Wedding cart...Double Heart challenge plus the awesome Cutting Cafe

Happy Day After Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you are surrounded at this very moment by piles of chocolate heart boxes and lacy things. I am surrounded by sugared up kids and sick dogs that found their way into one of the candy bags. Bad dogs! Our cut this week was requested by the fabulous Rene Stamps. She challenged us to use the Double Heart for the Wedding Solutions cart. In addition to this challenge, the incredible Regina Easter and her site, The Cutting Cafe, is sponsoring us this week. You know what that means, right? It means another contest is in the works.

Wild Card...Heart card challenge

Wecome to This Weeks BBTB2 Challenge, my name is Penny Shuberg I am a Design Team Member, and I also have the honor of being this weeks BBTB2 Host, In addition to being this weeks host it was also my week to pick the Design Teams challenge, being that Valentine's Day is only a week away I decided to pick something with a Valentine theme, what could be more fitting then a Heart? So my pick was to use the Heart card from the Cricut Cartridge Wild Card, this is a great cut as it gives the designer pretty much a blank canvas(Heart) Thank You to all of you who are followers and supporters of The BBTB2 Blog and once again we appreciate your stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments, Check out the Desingers Fabulous Creations and dont forget we would love to have you play along, use Mclinky to let us know that you have played along and we can link to your Blog to check out your projects...............

Winter Woodland...Rabbit Challenge

Hello! My name is Melissa Kirwan and I am hosting the BBTB2 Challenge this week! It's very exciting to come back here and check out what all the FABULOUS designers are up to each week, isn't it? I'd like to say "Thanks" to all of you who follow and support this blog as well.It's that time again for the monthly Blog Hop! The first one of 2010. So please hop around to the designer's blogs for some free blog candy. The cut I chose for this week's challenge is the bunny from the Winter Woodland cartridge. Since I first saw pics of this cartridge I immediately fell in love with this little guy! I also chose him because we are getting close to Valentine's Day, and then Easter and Spring, so I thought he might inspire us to leave the winter blues far behind. Check out the amazing creations below and maybe you'll be inspired too! We'd love to see your designs too so be sure to use McLinky to show us.
