BBTB2/Disney/Dreams Come True

Random Draw Winner: I am pleased to announce the winner for the Duckie Quiltie. Congrats to Sharon who said she will give the quiltie to her granddaughters for her dolls. Sharon, please email me quickly so I will send the Quiltie to you. Thanks to everyone who joined in on our blog hop.
DISNEY DELIGHTS
Happy Monday and a very Happy Blog Hop to one and all who visits here. I love being part of the talented design team for Bitten By The Bug2 and I especially love month end when the blog hop event comes to the board.

Our talented design team sister, Maria, is our hostess. She wanted to showcase some of the newest Disney cartridges but if we did not have the newer ones, we could design with anything Disney. H0pefully you have started out with the BBTB2 blog and then came to visit me from Maria's wonderful blog here. I grabbed up my Dreams Come True cart. It was a cartridge that was given to me by my friend Cathy and I am ashamed to admit, I just had not used anything from it. Once in the manual I found I loved the little fishie Finder, oh and the mermaid Ariel caught my eye but finally I settled upon this wonderful corner border on Page 41. I cut 4 base borders and popdotted the top design. I also popdotted the pretty little flowers the scatter around. Behind the border design I added the sea flora that I saw on the fishie page. I embossed the base card with the swirls, and then connected some of my lovely punch out letters to make the word LOVE. Each letter was embossed as well and just cuz, I added a little heart on the L.

This is a side view of the card to show the popdotted sections of the design.

Now onto the fun fun part of our blog hop. The blog candy!... This BH I am offering up a small 27x20-1/2 quiltie. I have tubs of fabrics and when I was rummaging around in one of the tubs, I came across this sweet duckie print. There was just enough to make this cute little quiltie ...it might be cute to use for a doll or a teddy bear... It might be a little coverlet to sit upon for a tea party. Perhaps it can be a cute gift to someone. I have used the tied method on the quiltie which results in a puffy finish, and the binding was done with a red and white heart fabric. If you wish to be included in the drawing for the Duckie Quiltie please tell me that you have a child who will use the quiltie for a doll, tea party or playtime, or if you will give the quiltie as a gift to a child you know. I will put your name in the draw on April 1. Check back after 2:00 that day and if you are the winner, please email me quickly so I can make arrangements to mail the quiltie to you. If I do not hear from the winner by April 4, I will select another name in the draw.
Here is a close up of part of the duckie print. Bright n' colorful it is....
Now...for the rest of our blog hop fun, I am so pleased to direct you to our very talented designer sis, Donna. She will delight you with her imagination of designs, and I am always envious of her many layers and details.
As always, thanks for visiting.

Your card is beautiful. Love the colors you used. Your quilt is so sweet.

Lillian Child said...

My grandmother used to quilt so many years ago, and I remember watching her as she pierced through several layers of fabric and batting, over and over and over again. It just amazed me that she never poked her finger with that needle as fast as she went. Thanks for the memory! This little duck quilt is ADORABLE!

Nancy said...

I love..love...love your card. It is so beautiful.

Maria said...

The flowers and design are fabulous! I think it just goes to show that we should always look deep into all our cartridges to see what little wonders we find....Disney, not just for characters :)

Sharon said...

Carol what a beautiful card! I have a couple of Disney Carts and don't really use them. I'm going to dig them out and explore the booklet.
We have a new little baby arriving in our family. My cousin is due in June.

Um, I have this cart too, and still haven't used it (yet)--clever idea! Blankie is cute too--if I can pry it away from my 5 year old using it for his stuffed horsie, I'd gift it to our 3-week old baby friend, Ruston!

Gorgeous card - love the colors and all the popped up details.
The little quilt is darling - my daughter, Ali, would love it for her Sarah doll's bed.

Margie said...

I've been drooling over it since I first saw it on FB and then drooled some more over at the Cricut MB, and here I now am, sloppering all over your blog page! LOL! I think this just became my favorite Carol card. Just love the colors, embossing and all of the great cuts!

Ola said...

This card is beautiful!!! And, I really love the duck quilt!!! I just received the cutest little Papillion dog that weighs 2.4 pounds.... this would be perfect her. She is always cold & wants everyone to hold her wrapped up in a blanket!!!

Thank you so much for sharing!!!

Very pretty Carole! Love the embossed background and the lovely flower garden!

Margie said...

Oh my gosh, Carole! Do you know your card is what inspired me to play along this week?! It was stuck in my head all day and when I got home I just had to break open my new Pixar cart! Love the little quilt! I keep the one you sent to Domenic in the playroom and let me tell you, those kids have found many uses for it. Amazing what kids can come up with!

Heather said...

This is so cute! I love all the embossing and the layers. I agree with Donna that this reminds us we can use the Disney carts for something else other than Disney.

SGilley said...

How absolutely precious is the blankie? I also love the "love" card. the embossed letters add lots of detail. If I won the blankie I would give it to my niece (http://thegardengate1.blogspot.com) isn't she purty?

What a gorgeous card, Carole. I've never seen anything done from that cartridge and had no clue what kind of cuts it had, but that border is incredible. Love how great the bright colors look against the embossed white background.
