BBTB freedom AND BLOGHOP!!!!!!!!



Happy Monday! better yet Happy Blog Hoppin day!
this week over at Bitten By The Bug our fabulous team leader had us use the jumbled word freedom from our cricut and graphically speaking cartridge. what i did was alter a few cylinder containers..trying to make it look like a firecracker centerpiece..what do ya think of it?
besides the freedom cut i also used stars from wild card and george cartridges. i computer generated some text, added some shiny gift wrap that i cut a rectangle from, cut it into strips a little more than half way down the rectangle, then bunched it all up together and adhered it to the top of the cylinder. the paper i used is pathways creative papers /americana.
now.... onto the blog hop! woo hooo!!!!!! for my giveaway i purchased a few items from reginas awesome cuttin cafe store for ya. im offering 3 very fun sets of printables .. click on the links to all 3 so you can see what youre going to be getting ..prepare to be amazed at reginas designs!
first....the awesome flipflop .. you are not going to believe this!
second: 4 new background printables, ewe, ladybug pie and heart
AND last but not least....greeting card folder for quarter fold sized cards
now all you have to do is leave me a coment of which of the printables of the 3 is your favorite, AND when youre done head on over to sharons blog grammas house of cards.. again prepared to be amazed! sharon is sooooooooo sweet funny and dang creative! ive been a huge huge fan since i joined the cricut mb a couple of years ago and she never ceases to amaze me with her awesome work. so leave a comment here then go have some fun at sharons..see what shes offering up :)

Adorable Shelly! Love the vintage look (no surprise there). Your awsome style is evident in EVERYTHING you do. Way hard to choose a fave on the stamps. All so amazing but I'm partial to ladybugs! xxD

Absolutely the "bomb"
I love this and we are having a BBQ next weekend for the 4th I am gonna have to try my own spin on this for the center of our food table


I absolutely love the Flip Flop card and would love to win anything really, but that flip flop has endless possibilities
