Rose Challenge Winner

Hi everyone! Glenda here! It is time to announce the winner of the Rose Challenge! We enjoyed seeing all the different Cricut rose images and the pretty ways they were used. Each of you did a wonderful job showcasing the Rose for this challenge making it very difficult for me to select the winner.

I have chosen Sheri of My Sheri Cards. I love the beautifully decorated box and card! The roses are gorgeous and she added many pretty details on her projects!

Congratulations Sheri! Please email me at gboyd439 at yahoo dot com so I can send you the Project of the Week blinkie. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Patriotic Challenge

Hello Everyone, this is Susan Edwards from Busy with the Cricky here to host this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge.  I selected a theme for this week instead of a specific cut... the challenge theme is Patriotic.  With July 4th just around the corner I thought it might be nice for the Design Team to inspire you with some Patriotic projects.  By hosting our Patriotic challenge this week you will still have an entire week to craft your own projects!

For my project I created a Patriotic centerpiece using three Cricut cartridges.  I created a tablescape around my centerpiece and will be sharing the individual tablescape projects this week on Busy with the Cricky.  Thank you for stopping by BBTB2 today.  We cannot wait to see the fabulous Patriotic project you will share with us this week!
