Hello everyone
What beautiful weather we're having here at  the moment! Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Easter and plenty of chocolate!
Well it's time for our weekly BBTB2 challenge and I have the honour of hosting this weeks challenge! I chose either of the Crown cuts from the Home Decor Solutions Cartridge.
I created a card that I hope any little Princess would like to receive!
 My card measures 8"x 5" and I have printed straight on to the card using Echo Park's digital kit Little Girl and this is from the Elements 1 pack which can be purchased here at Jessica Sprague. I thought this looked  like the subway art which is so popular right now! I chose the tiara like crown from the Home Decor cart which I cut at 2" three times, once in pink (blackout) and twice with silver mrricard. (one base and one blackout), I adhered the pink layer to the back of the silver base cut then pop doted on to the silver base cut and then pop dotted again on to the card for some dimension. I have blinged up the crown to within an inch of it's life with clear and pink gems! Finally I cut the little wand from Paper Doll Dressup at 3" it's one of the icon cuts, I cut 2 of the base in silver mirricard and one of just the star which was on the shift of the icon cut. The two wands are layered on top of each other for some strength then I have added pink tuille behind the wand which is then 'sandwiched' with the star cut. Finally more pink and clear gems on the wand and on the hearts on the card and then the wand pop dotted on to the card.
Now don't forget to pop over to BBTB2 and check out all the gorgeous crown creations my DT sister have made and we would love it if you joined in the challenge, if you don't have Home Decor you can use any crown from any cart and there are lots!
Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!

Hello There!
It's Monday and challenge time over at BBTB2 and this week our very talented Karen chose the cut for us, the Pineapple from Wall Decor and More cartridge.
My card is 6x6" and the backing paper is from the Stripes collection which is a download from Pink Petticoat. I cut my pineapple at 7" 3 times twice in green polka dot paper (Bo Bunny)and once in yellow. I cut the green leaves from one of the green cuts and offset behind my base cut and cut the pineapple from the yellow, embossed it with a Quickutz folder which I cannot find the name of now (I used the debossed side) and mounted on the front of my base cut. I aded black gems to my pineapple some turquoise ribbon and a button, oh and not forgetting the orange straw which I cut down from a real straw! This has been pop dotted on to the card for a little dimension. The word Party is cut from Straight from the Nest cart at 2 1/2" and is part of the Hen Party cut. I cut the shadow in black card (American Crafts) and the base in pink card (C'ordinations) three times and again pop dotted on to the card. The colours are much more vibrant in real life, but as I am usually a night crafter my photos are not as great as they could be!!
I hope you will join in our challenge this week, we love seeing your creations and you can use any pineapple from any of the many carts if you don't have Wall Decor.
Have a wonderful week everyone and thanks for popping by!

Hello all
Hope you all here in the UK had a lovely Mother's day yesterday, I did!
Our challenge over at BBTB2 this week has been  set by Lori and was to use any of the words/sentiments on the Mother's Day 2010 cartridge. I bought this cart after Mother's Day last year just for the cut I've used on my cards and have had this very simple idea for the cards ever since! As Mother's day in the UK was yesterday this was a great time for  this challenge to be set! Thanks Lori!
My cards are  6x6" and both use Hunky Dory foiled card, stripe and polka dots in pink and lilac.I covered the fronts with the striped card, The Happy Mother's Day cut is cut at 5 1/2" in silver mirri card for the shadow and polka dot for the base cut then pop dotted on to the card. The butterflies are cut in silver mirri using a Tonic punch from Hobbycraft and I've added some tiny gems. That's it very simple easy cards and my mum and mother in law loved them!
The projects my DT sisters have created over at BBTB2  are absolutely beautiful so make sure to pop over and take a peek and we'd love you to join us in the challenge this week!
Have a great week and thanks so much for looking!
