BBTB2/Baby Buggy

I am pleased to announce the winner of my blog candy draw (the little green tote). Congrats to Maureen. Please email me and I will get the necessary information to mail the tote. Thanks to everyone who visited and left a sweet comment.
Happy month end and happy blog hop to one and all. I cannot believe we have skipped right on through the month of January and now head for February 2012. Awesome time travel!!! I am pleased to tell you I am the hostess for the blog hop for BBTB2. I asked the gals to design with a baby carriage. I selected New Arrival but there are several baby buggies/carriages/prams on other cartridges. So if you would like to join up with our challenge, please do so. We are a Cricut Based design team so we ask that your design has at the selected cut from a Cricut cartridge and we ask that the project be a new design. Be sure to mention on your blog that you have joined in with the BBTB2 challenge. We love that shout out.

I hope that you have started your blog hop at the beginning with Heather right here.... from Donna's delights here you have been guided to my blog. Here is my card:

This is a side view so I can show the dimension for the carriage. Gotta love those popdots.


I cut several of the carriages from New Arrival in two different sizes. The base mount has been embossed with the BABY embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I used the smaller carriages for the background, the two different pattern papers were exchanged between the two smaller carriages that show, the larger carriage cut at 5-1/2 sits atop the base. I added a white ribbon for bling. The word "baby" was in a stash box so I am afraid I cannot tell you which cartridge it came from, but I do like the style of the word. Little punch hearts decorate the wheels, and the main carriage has been embossed.
If you leave a comment on my blog when you visit, you will be put into the draw for my blog candy. I make totes, by the dozens, to use up the drawers and tubs of stashed fabrics. This is just a smaller tote adorned with eyelet lace and some checkered ribbon. It is lined but has no inner pocket. I will do the draw on February 3 so check back after 2PM that day. If I do not hear from the named winner by February 5, I will redraw.
Now onto Krista's darling blog...where you will be delighted. Be sure to visit BBTB2 and follow along with the blog hop. Visit each designer on their blog because you will be in for a treat. Thanks for visiting.
