Happy Hauntings...Witch challenge

Hello everyone, this Susan from Busy with the Cricky and it is my week to select the challenge cut here at Bitten by the Bug 2! With Halloween just around the corner and so many of us thinking of costumes, home decor and parties, I selected the flying witch from Cricut's Happy Haunting cartridge. I love how intense this witch appears – leaning forward as if she is in a real hurry to put a hex on someone!!

Remember, here at Bitten by the Bug 2 we love for you to play along and create your own project with the weekly challenge cut - just post a link to your project in the area below this post. Also remember that as the rules of joining us in the weekly challenge go, if you do not own the Happy Hauntings cartridge, you can use ANY WITCH from Cricut cartridge and play along.

Our wonderfully talented design team is offering up some fabulous inspiration with this week's selection of projects! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did - beginning with my flocked material home decor project.

POW Wheelbarrow Challenge

Hi guys, Donna here. I'm excited to announce the Pick of the Week for my Wheelbarrow Challenge. The entries were phenomenal and it was very hard to choose, but this fabulous 3-D wheelbarrow by Cheryl really caught my eye. I love it when people use the cuts in creative ways and was blown away when I read just how big this is (would you believe 11 3/4"?)! Fabulous Fall display, Cheryl! Please email me at dlmundinger (at) yahoo (dot) com and I will send that coveted POW badge right out to you.

POW - Time 4 Fun

We're rollin' now! I have now chosen the winner of the Time 4 Fun challenge from September 19.

As always, all of the entries were fabulous. We LOVE looking at your work.

Let's congratulate Sharon for her darling entry!

I love her distressing and the way she used the clocks as accents. Great page, Sharon!! Thank you everyone for playing along with us!

POW - Drippy Heart

We're catching up around here. I hope you don't take it personally that we don't get the POWs picked as timely as we should. We just LOVE creating and looking at YOUR creations and it's SO HARD to just pick ONE.

But, here I am. I have the winner for the Drippy Heart challenge from (gulp) September 5

Let's congratulate Loving Scrapper for her ultra cool winged heart.

Keep the projects coming in! We love them!!
