BBTB2 Blog Hop - So Sweet!

Sweet! You're all here and that makes it So Sweet, lol! Hopefully your here for the Bitten By The Bug 2 Blog Hop, if not, you're in for a Sweet Treat! I can't believe that it's the end of June already! Can you believe it! Time is just flying! Well if you hopped here from The Wonderful Shelly's blog, your on the right track, you can also start at the beginning at the BBTB2 blog, and to check out my Lovely Design Team Sister's Creations, or if you ever get lost.
Well I have a Sweet Treat for you all. Monday's are always new challenge days at BBTB2 and the last Monday of the month is always Blog Hop week so this week Our Leader Heather, picked the Watermelon from Stretch Your Imagination and somewhere in translation I read/heard DoodleCharms (?), lol! Don't know where that came from, I have SYI but I pulled up Doodlecharms in Design Studio and planned out my cards and had them cut and half way done and realized Heather said SYI, I was even pretty excited to use an "Old School" cart but went Doodlecharms instead, Go Figure, I guess it's a sign of getting old, LOL!
Well I did two cards because I couldn't decide on the colors, I wanted bright and bold but then soft and sweet so I just made two, and went pretty simple! Well for me it's pretty simple, I have a tendency to get a little to intricate at times and then I'm stressed because I want it to be different and unique so this time I didn't do alot of layers and extras but wanted to see how quick I could get it done and still look like it has some personality. What do you think?
My First card:
 Bold and Bright, Added a bit of embossing and doodling and inking and a touch of bling then......
My Second card:
 Soft and Sweet! Pretty much the same as the first but used a different embossing folder, the Cricut Circle folders I got at meet and greet I went to in Ohio last year. It's the first time I used it! Both cards turned out pretty big but since they don't have alot of dimension they won't be to much to mail so I can mail them normally with minimal padding!
Well I have a bit of blog candy for you too, all you have to do is MUST be a follower (I will check, lol) and leave me a comment! See pretty easy! Now hopefully you'll be able to join us in the challenge which is to use the Watermelon from Stretch Your Imagination (or another cart with a Watermelon on it, hint, Doddlecharms, lol or any other) And it MUST be a NEW post, please no older post, you have two weeks to enter and you could win our cute Pick of the Week (POW) Blinkie.
Now your next stop on the Hop is our Guest Designer for the Month which is the Lovely Mona, Such a sweetie and Loved having her this month, so talented! Now remember if you ever get lost and to check out what all my Talented Design Team Sisters created, you can start at the beginning HERE, BBTB2 blog.
So have fun hopping and have a "So Sweet" week!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
