Sweet Treats - Ice Cream Cone

Hi, this is Maria and welcome to another Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge. It is my turn to pick the challenge this week. I chose the ice cream cone on the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge. Summer to me, heck anytime for that matter, means ICE CREAM!!! I guess I would have to classify it as my favorite food. Please play along with us and show us what you can make with this cut or if you don't have Sweet Treats just pick any other cut with ice cream in it! Post your project below. It is also Blog Hop week. Follow the list below and hop along and see what all our fabulously talented Design Team members have made this week. Who knows, you might even have a chance to win some prizes along the way!

Jolly Holidays Penguin with Umbrella Challenge

Hey everybody! Thanks for stopping by the BBTB2 to check out this week's challenge. I chose the penguin with umbrella cut from the Jolly Holidays cartridge. As many of us are trying to think cool thoughts during the summer heat, I thought the penguin would do just that. The penguin does not have to be winter or Christmas related, and if you don't have that cartridge, you can use any penguin cut. Have fun with it! And keep it "cool!" Please link your take on this week's challenge using Linky. We love to see your projects and have you share your inspiration with us! Have wonderful week!

Mittens off of Joys of the Season.........

Welcome to BBTB2...I am your host Penny Shuberg. I love Christmas time and all of beauty that the season brings. I decided that doing a wintery cut in July would be the perfect way to bring that magical feeling back into our lives during these hot days, so I chose the mittens off of Joys of the Season. We would love to see what you come up with. Please make sure that all of your creations are brand new for this challenge. Go ahead and turn the air on high, grab a cup of hot chocolate with tons of marshmallows and create cute little mittens for your Christmas in July project..Ps..If you don't have the cart JOTS, please feel free to pick any mittens off any cart~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Good Morning everyone! It's me, Heather.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you enjoy your day and hope that everyone stays safe and happy.

POW - Winner of the "Hangin With My Gnomies Challenge"

Hi Everyone, Theresa here and today I've had the hard task of picking my favorite and boy it sure was one of the hardest things I've done in along time, lol! Thank You ALL, I absolutely LOVED ALL of them and they can come and "Hang with my Gnomies" anytime they like, but I just kept coming back to this adorable little set and just the thought of it going to a Man just made me chuckle, lol! Loved the colors and it inspired me to make myself a little shape card out of the Gnome so I have to give it up to Beth!
So Beth, contact me at and I'll send you our POW (pick of the week) Blinkie to display on your blog (along with braggin rights, of course!) Congrats Again and Thank You to all you talented Gals that came to "Hang with my Gnomies" for the challenge, your Welcome ANYTIME!

((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa
