BBTB Blog Hop!

Happy Monday Everyone! If you are still trying to wake up - and shake off those monday blues you are in for a treat! Today we are kicking off the month with our monthly BBTB blog hop! Woot!!! You know what that means - lots of inspiration which will get those creative juices flowing and challenge you to use those cartridges in your growing "cricut library"!

This week we were challenge by Carole to use the cupcake cut from either the doodlecharms or celebrations cartridge. Since I have really gotten a lot of use from my doodlecharms cartridge I decided to show some love to my celebrations cartridge. I messed around with a few different designs and then decided that I just was in a big 'ol cupcake mood - so I decided to just make a cute simple cupcake card. I cut this at 5 inches - and I think it turned out pretty stinkin' cute!

Playing off of the card shape I decided to add just a simple sentiment of "hi" - so I call this my "hi cupcake" card - get it :) Now I want a real cupcake - oh that sounds good!

Here's my card:




Well since we are "hopping" you know that means there is some blog candy up for grabs! I guess I am in a bit of a spring mood because I have a flower theme going on here.

To one LUCKY scrapper goes the following: (sorry about the photo but we are having more snow here in CO)

1 package of prima flowers - ooolala these are amazing! I think they are by far some of the best flowers prima has put out!

1 tin of Maya Road Flower Chipboard!

3 sets of stamps

22 Tags from various companies!

1 pkg of Flower Brads from Around the Block!


and here's a closer view:
If you want to be entered into this drawing - all you have to do is leave me a comment here on this posting before this friday (March 5th) at 9am MST. I will then draw one lucky winner using random.org and announce the winner on my blog later that day

Now the fun doesn't stop here - from here you want to visit Enfys blog for another chance to win! (click here for a direct link)

Have a super Monday everyone! Make sure to stop by later this week for another giveaway and to snag my freebie cuts for March!

Way to be daring and "show some love" to Celebrations cartridge - cause that's the one I have, not doodlecharms. Love the big bow. Makes you think of fluffy frosting - which is really the only way to do a cupcake, right???
