BBTB2 Challenge and I'm Hosting This Week!

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! So what did you all think of that awesome Blog Hop last week!? Thank you all for all the wonderful comments you left me, I love reading all of them. Well you all know that today is Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge day and I am the Host for the week. I think I picked a Fun Challenge this week for you all. I chose to use one of the Lite cartridges. It's the Bloom cartridge and I wanted to use the Fence/Gate for my cut this week. Now don't get upset if you don't have Bloom, there are alot of carts with a fence/gate on them. So please join us over at BBTB2 and you could win our cute littleWinners Blog Blinkie to add to your blog, (along with bragging rights) lol!
Well I used some older papers and I really don't know where I got them from or who makes them, they are older, from at least 5 years ago! I used the Fence/Gate image and then welded the additional fence piece onto either side of the fence, one side is flipped and welded also. I did alot of embossing on most of the images but I just couldn't get really good pictures for some reason. I think it was just the really light colored papers (it couldn't be my picture taking skills now, could it, LOL) I also used my white jelly roll pen for some accent stitching and there's some bling on there also, I used my IRock that I won over at Joanna's blog, boy I sure do love it, you know I love the bling, lol! 
More embossing and jelly roll accents and bling, (don't you just Love that adorable little Worm with the little banner, lol) and how about that little birdcage! The little worm, butterflies and birds are from the Lovely Floral cartridge, also one of the Lites.
And I also made a card with some of the test cuts I did. The birdcage is the negative pieces (usually the pieces you throw away) from the birdhouse cut and I used my favorite packing tape trick and added gold glitter! Don't you just Love it, I sure do, LOL! All made with leftovers! Added some bling and it's a great card if I do have to say so myself, lol! A great "just because" card to have!

Well thanks for stopping by, you know, I really do appreciate all of my friends and followers and love all the wonderful comments you all leave. And I didn't forget about the crepe paper flower tutorial, I just got a video camera and I need to figure out how to use it, (boy there really needs to be about 4-5 extra hours in a day, lol) it would be better then all those pictures I would need to do so I'll work on it this week. If anyone has any pointers about filming I sure would appreciate the heads up, lol! I've never did one before so wish me luck! 
((Hugs)) and Take Care, See you at the challenge!
