"WELCOME" Friends Any Cartridge Challenge with BBTB2 and the Cricut Monthly Circle Challenge!

 Hi Everyone and Happy Monday and you know what that means! Bitten By The Bug 2 Challenge day and I get the privilege of being the host of this weeks challenge and I decided I wanted to "WELCOME" all my Friends to join us and I chose to use ANY "WELCOME" from ANY Cartridge! Now I decided to do a Home Dec project but you can do Any project, but if the fancy strikes you I'd LOVE for you to join me and do a Home Dec project too!
I'm also adding this to the Cricut Monthly Circle Challenge which is to create a Wall Art project. Well I did the Framed Welcome project and also a Vinyl project. It's not on the Wall per say but it's on the Step of the Stairs attached to the wall, I sure hope that counts for Wall Art! You sure can't miss it when you come in Our House, lol!

Now I know some of you know that we built our house (and I mean physically Built it ourselves) and any of you that have ever done that or even did renovations know that it's a never ending project! Well we just put some of the finishing touches on the Family room and that meant putting some new stairs in and I have been dying to do this and just LOVE how it came out!    
I used the Quarter Note Cartridge and welded the letters together using Design Studio and cut them @ 4". The flowers are from the Storybook Cartridge and cut @ 3 1/2". Now this was my first attempt at using vinyl (other then on the glittered Xmas ornaments) and I can say I will be doing it again! I almost gave up at first because I used some crappy Vinyl (the Paper Studio, has anyone else had a problem with that brand?) and it wouldn't even stay on the backing of what it came in, it kept coming up when it was cutting. Now I had originally wanted to use black vinyl but like I said it wouldn't stay on the backing so I used this Red and it actually goes perfect with my Red Wall, almost the same Red, I couldn't have planned that any better, lol! 

(Sorry the pic looks like crap, I've been having MAJOR issues with blogger lately and for some reason my pictures are not coming through even tho they look fine on my computer, anyone else having this issue, this was the best pic I could get of this pic to show up on my blog, What's Up!?)

Well when I was trying to figure out the size I wanted I thought I would practice on some cardstock and then remembered I had these frames that I had bought so I figured I would make me a "Welcome" picture also. The Welcome is cut @ 4" and the scroll on the picture is from Home Decor and cut @ 2 1/2" and then it just need something and you know me, had to add some Bling, lol! The paper is from the DCWV Green Stack and I'm going to have to get me some longer paper because I had to piece it together for it to fit since the frame is 9" x 18" and it came from Walmart maybe around $5 (?) I think this would be a perfect gift for someone and I will be definitely be making more of these in the future!

Well That's my project for the "WELCOME" BBTB2 Challenge! I sure hope you join us and remember, it doesn't have to be Home Dec (although I'd love it if you did, lol) but it has to be a NEW project (no back linking) and please add a link back to BBTB2! You can use ANY Cartridge and just use the word "WELCOME", that's it!

We also have a sponsor this week with My Creative Classroom, hop on over and check them out and check out BBTB2 for all the rules! One person will win a seat at one of their online classes so more reason to join in the fun!

So "Welcome Friends" and don't forget to check out the Design Team Gals projects, they always inspire and motivate, and have a Wonderful Week!!!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
