Challenge Rules Clarification

Hey guys! Although we're LOVING the participation in our challenges, I think we need to clarify that each challenge specifies a particular cut that must be Cricut. In this case, the "Welcome" must be a Cricut cut but can be from any cartridge. It is especially important in this challenge because of the fabulous prize from our sponsor, My Creative Classroom. Please scroll down to the challenge in case you missed the info as we had some technical difficulties on Monday. Since the prize will be by Random org, we will be removing any entries that do not meet the challenge requirements before choosing the winner. We apologize for any confusion and hope you understand. Thanks so much!

"WELCOME" Friends Any Cartridge Challenge!

Hi Everyone, Theresa here and as you can see I would Love to "WELCOME" all my Friends here at Bitten By The Bug 2 to join in this weeks challenge which is to use the Word "WELCOME" in your project this challenge! You can use ANY Cartridge you would like, you just have to use the word "WELCOME"! Now as you can see I did a Home Dec project and if you Really want to challenge yourself I would love it if you join in and do a Home Dec project also (but that isn't set in stone, lol) just to make the challenge a bit more Challenging! And I actually did two projects, but you only have to do one! I actually used the Quarter Note Cartridge and welded my letters together (love this font) and then for my flourish on the stairs I used Storybook and the flourish on the framed piece is from Home Decor.

Well I sure hope you join us this challenge, just remember it has to be a NEW project and please mention Bitten By the Bug 2 in your post with a link back to us.
