BBTB2/Celebrations/Doodlecharms/Cupcake

Winner winner winner: Joeygirl86 has won the draw for the pink kitty cat tote. Please email me with your addie and I will mail to you quickly. Congratulations. And to all that participated and left a sweet comment on my post, thank you very much. Each of you are treasured...
Happy Sunday night and welcome to Monday morning. It's BBTB2 time, and it's blog hop time. What a winning combo, doncha think? I am so pleased to be the host this week on BBTB2. I selected Celebrations or Doodlecharms as the cartridges to use, and I love love love the cupcakes on either of these cartridges so I asked the designers to use one in their project. Here is my take on the card. I've used one of the cartridges...can you guess which one? Be sure to take note on BBTB2 regarding the special giveaway from Everyday Cricut.

The cupcake has been mounted on a Cutting Cafe "sweet" background print, and I've added a sweet pink polka dotted ribbon, a punch pink flower with a button center and I've edged the front of the card with MS edge punches. And my traditional "doodles".
This is blog hop week because it is the end of February. So, be sure to visit each of the designer's links to their blogs and leave a comment. I know they will be so happy you have visited them. Start here with Susan's blog and then move on down the line. From my blog, I link to Sandi, the multi-talented gal who always has a fun new technique.
For my blog candy, I am offering a cute little pink striped tote that features a cute little cat.
If you leave a comment, I will put you in the draw. I will draw the winner's name on March 4,Thursday. Please check back after 4:00 to see whose name appears as the winner. If the winner does not notify me by Sunday, March 7, I will draw another name. Thanks to each of you who visited me.

Love how you used that cupcake. How can you make a card without using some of Regina's wonderful digis? Those border punches together look super. I've never done that before but will have to give a new eye to my punches. I don't really have very many.
