Blog Hop Time....
Happy Monday my friends. It's Carole here... It's our month end challenge. Sandi was our Blog Hop Hostess for this week however she's encountered those dreaded computer problems so I am taking her helm with the challenge. Sandi selected the Straight From The Nest as the cartridge ...and we were to use the bird cage. Also in the fray is the bird house from Stretch Your Imagination. However we want everyone to play along in the challenge so you may use a bird cage and/or a bird house from any cartridge you have. Please do submit your cards... we love it when you do. Meantime here are the cards our talented design team whipped up for your inspiration. Below I have included the links to the design team sisters...please hop from each to see what they have in store...and since it's a blog hop challenge, you can leave a sweet comment and perhaps be the winner of something wonderful.

Heart Border with Martha Stewart Seasonal Art

Happy Valentine's Day! This is Susan from Busy with the Cricky. Here at Bitten by the Bug 2 we are celebrating St. Valentine's day of honor with hearts - Martha Stewart designed hearts! I have selected the Martha Stewart Seasonal Art Cake cartridge from which to select our challenge cuts. The design team was challenged to use the heart border AND a decorative heart from the cartridge, or from any other cartridge containing a heart if they did not have the MS Seasonal Art cartridge. The MS Seasonal Art cartridge is not for cakes alone! This cartridge is loaded with fun and festive cuts, many lovely borders, and delightful seasonal and holiday cuts. I am looking forward to sharing the spring and Easter images soon. But for today we are sharing our love of all things Cricut by bring you Valentine hearts!

Fence challenge...Bloom cart

He everyone, Theresa here and it's Monday again. I sure hope you all had fun at the Blog Hop last week, boy aren't those gals AMAZING! I loved Everything!
Well this week is my week to pick the challenge and I picked a Lite cartridge. It's called Bloom, and I'm sure most of us are in the mood for springtime, LOL! I know I'm ready to see a bit of green and some flowers instead of white and SNOW! Not that I don't like the snow, as long as I don't have to go out in it! Well the challenge for the week is to use the Fence/Gate on the Bloom cartridge. Now I thought of everyone here so if you don't have the Bloom cartridge there are alot of fences/gate on many of the other cartridges and as you can see some of the Gals have used those carts. I made a layout but you are free to make a card or anything you would like (I actually made a card also with some of my test cuts, lol) Please link up your project with the link below and you could win our Cute Blog Blinkie if you are picked this week with your project (along with the bragging rights to go along with it) lol! Have fun with it, and make sure you stop by all the wonderful Design Team blogs for more inspiration!
((Hugs)) Stay Warm and Safe and Have a Great Week!
