Hello Everyone
It's Monday and time for the BBTB2 challenge and it's also month end so it's bloghop time!
This week it 's my turn to host the challenge so I chose the beautiful curly tree cut from the Heritage cartridge. Don't worry if you don't have this cartridge you can use any tree from any cartridge for your project.
I decided to make a thank you card and all my cuts are done at 5 1/2" using ivory pearlescent card and gold mirricard. I welded the tree from Heritage cart offset to a silhouette circle from Geoge And Basic Shapes cart using Design Studio and also cut a silhouette circle on it's own (both in ivory) I cut a circle from George in gold Mirricard and finally I cut my card base in ivory using the circle bauble tag from Joys Of The Season cart and cut the top of the bauble off by hand which gave me a circular card. All layers have then been pop dotted as follows: the gold mirricard on to my base card followed by the welded silhouette and tree followed by the silhouette circle, by pop dotting each layer I got a nice reflection of my tree against the mirricard. I then added some little frosted glass leaf charms and a gold thank you peel off to finish.
The design team have produced the most beautiful tree projects for this weeks challenge so please be sure to visit BBTB 2 and take a look and we would love to see your take on the challenge too!

Today is BBTB2 Monday and this week our sweet and lovely Krista chose cut for us to work with. Krista loves to bake so she chose the Pie cut from Paper Doll Dress Up. Of course if you don't have this cart you can use a pie from any cart.
My card is 6x6" and the backing papers are the apple collection from the Autumn set of Pink Petticoat (download) printed in black and white. I used both the positive and the negative for the background. I then added some red and white gingham ribbon which I tied at the sides of my card. My apple pie is cut at 10" (it comes out at about 4" across irl). I cut it 3 times, once in little harlequinn card (another Pink Pettticoat download printed in a pistaccio green) for the base and twice on cream card. I cut the 2 pie tops away from their bases and  used the tops to complete the piecrust for my apple pie. The two top layers have been pop dotted for some dimension and I inked around the edge of the top layer of piecrust with yellow ink and a smidge of brown. To finish off I added german glitter glass for a sugar coated top! and some teeny tiny red and white polka dot buttons. Finally I needed a sentiment and I was stuck!! It took me an age then all of a sudden it came to me lol!! the word Happiest had 'pie' in the middle! I printed the sentiment on my computer in red and green highlighting pie in black and layered them with pop dots on mats of green and red. Font is cheri.
Now go feast your eyes on the delicious pie's my DT sisters over at BBTB2 have created for you this week, they all look so scrumptious! and lets see your pies yum yum!
Thanks so much for popping in today
