It's BBTB2 challenge Monday and this week our very talented Sarah has chosen the theme of 'Pass it On'  Create a project that you can pass on just because,  not for any particular reason and brighten someone's day!  You can use any cut from any Cricut cartridge.

I decided to make card and decorate a bag to match to hold a little gift.

I bought Create A Critter cartridge ages ago  just for this sweet little owl and this is the first time I have cut her!

Now I have a little story, you know me, old school still using Design Studio, well not for this one gasp!!  I work at Hobbycraft and we've just had the Cricut Mini, I was so excited and of course volunteered to bring one home and set up CCR and do some samples for the shop.  I loved CCR (Cricut Craft Room which is a free online design programme for anyone out there who doesn't know) it's so easy to use and the Cricut Mini cuts like a dream, I'm really impressed by this little machine!

Now back to the details of my card, I welded 2 base owl cuts at 5.5" at the ears to make a shaped card and then cut a black base layer,  a pink layer and a green and white polka dot layer. beak and feet were cut in light blue. To assemble I pop dotted each layer for some dimension.The little owl on the bag has been cut the same but at 4" and laid on to a mat of pink gingham paper.  The sentiments and patterned paper are both from Craftwork Cards and I just inked over the sentiments to colour them pink. Finally my little obsession of late, tuille!  I added some light blue tuille bows to the bag and a little one to the card.

 As for passing it on I have cut another set to assemble which I intend on giving to my lovely Mum!

Please jump on over to BBTB2 and see the gorgeous projects from the rest of the DT and please join in our challenge as we always love seeing your take!

Thanks so much for popping in and have a great week everyone!
