BBTB2/Stretch Your Imagination/Ice Cream Cone

A Winner: I have processed the draw for the Cat Tote blog candy and I am pleased to announce that JenBlue is the winner. I have notified her and as soon as she emails me, I will mail the tote. Congrats to the winner, and I thank each of you for playing along with the blog hop. I appreciated every comment and every visit.

This is month end and that means blog hop for the design team. I love participating each month. Krista is the hostess and for our design assignment, she selected Stretch Your Imagination for the Cricut cartridge and we were to design using the ice cream cone. This ice cream cone is one of my faves of all the cartridge choices and there are plenty of cone designs available.
If you started out with the BBTB2 blog, you will have been directed to me from that oh so fantastically creative blog of Donna. Her designs are always just perfect, with layers of design, bling, and a perfect result.
Here is my card. I made this for a little gal, just leaving the single digit years to those double digits of 10 years old. When you turn 10, you think you've surely "arrived". It's a milestone birthday.
Recipe: Cricut: Stretch Your Imagination/ice cream cone
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder/Happy Birthday and Swiss Dots
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Red Jewel for the Cherry On Top
Sentiment: Computer
In the tradition of my blog hops, I am offering up a cute little tote I made. It's sewn with a bright green fabric and decorated with a darling applique/embroidery grinning-cat. If you wish to be in the draw to win this tote, please leave a comment on my blog. On August 2 I will do the draw. Please check back after 2:00PM to see the announcement of the winner's name. If you see your name, please email me quickly. If I do not hear from the winner by August 5, I will do a second draw.
Thanks for visiting me, I love your visits and comments. Now, blog hop over to Heather's blog to see what she has done with this cute ice cream cone assignment.
