BBTB2/Winter Wonderland/Rabbit

UPDATE: PSrusberg has never responded to the blog candy win so I have drawn another name: ZOPELOTI, you're it... please email me the deets. Blog Candy Winners announced: Here are the three in random.org. Amylynn, Avril and Psrusberg. Please email me your addies...and if you have a preference on the tote theme, let me know and if it is possible I will mail that tote... if all of you ask for the same one.... then I will draw a name for the chosen tote, and then the other two winners will get one of the other two.
Also please let me hear from you no later than February 12, or I will draw another name. Thanks to all for playing along with the BBTB2 blog hop and my blog candy fun.
It's the end of January....can ya believe it?.... I just am amazed at the fast days that speed past me.
It's time for the blog hop for Bitten By The Bug2 and I am so pleased to be a part of it. I love blog hops, I am always so pleased to see visitors and I appreciate each one of you. This challenge is hosted by our design sister Melissa Kirwan who selected Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge and we were to design with the Rabbit cut on Page 58. I don't have this cartridge (yet) and so my DT sisters, Heather and Sandi shared with me . I used rabbit cuts from each of the sweet girls...and here is my card... I decided to do an Easter Card because bunnies just must be on a sweet Easter design. The pink and blue mounts were edged with the giant MS punch. I added some MS punch flowers and a rubber stamped sentiment. The grass is a Sizzix die cut.

And now onto the blog candy! I have three small totes that I am offering, so three visitors who leave a comment will be in the draw. I embroideried the designs on one of my embroidery machines. First up is Birdy Tote, a small size measuring 7x7-1/2. Birdy is encased with blue rick rack and there is a sweet burdundy ribbon tied at the top edge.
Second blog candy is Chickie tote, measuring 8x8 and the tote has red rick rack around Chickie and some cotton eyelet lace around the top.
Third offering is Ducky Tote, measuring 9x9 with a sweet eyelet lace around the top edge.
These are not large totes but they can carry small treasures and books. I hope you like the challenge card and that you will want to sign up for the drawing. I will draw all three names on February 5th so please check back after 4PM that day to see the announcements. If your name shows, please email me with your addies and I will get those mailed to you the following Monday.

Now in the tradition of a true blog hop, you will want to hop over to Donna's blog to see her wonderful take on this challenge. Donna is an awesome designer, and you will love reading about her recent participation in CHA (Craft and Hobby Assn)... TFL...
