BBTB2 Blog Hop

Time for another BBTB2 blog hop. This week the team were asked to use the Bless this Nest cut from the Sweethearts cartridge. This is such a cute cut, I can't imagine why I haven't used it before, but that's the beauty of BBTB, you get to use cuts that you would otherwise have overlooked.
All the papers are by Heidi Grace, the scallop borders along the top and bottom were cut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I added a bit of glitter to the heart and top hat

I thought she should have a little bow.................

What am I offering for a prize? This pack of 18 12 x 12 papers and lace cardstock by K I Memories, lovely zingy summer colours for your hot weather projects. I added a pack of Thickers vinyl alphas by American Crafts - love these, you can swipe them with an ink pad to totally coordinate with your project. As always, I will mail to anywhere in the world



What do you have to do? Simply leave a comment on this post, and I will draw a winner using random.org on Thursday evening, so be sure to pop back here on Friday to see if you have won
If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, go to BBTB2 and follow the links
If you want to go on from here, the lovely and talented Jeannie is next on the hop, so go over there to see her lovely nest project, and what is up for grabs and leave her a comment.
My timings might be a bit 'off', my computer still thinks it is in the UK, I am on EST (US) and I think BBTB is set for mountain time or central time, which I don't have a clue how to work out. I am joining the ranks of the senior bewildered, you will just have to pop back later if the hop isn't up and running...........Sorry about that
Good luck, and enjoy the hop

This is just wonderful! I love the colors!!! Her little bow is perfect!! The glitter on his tophat just sets is off. Don't worry about the time. My timing is always off and I've lived here all my life!!! As we grow (I'm not going to say age!), we tend to adapt to the changes and go on. At least I hope that's what I'm doing!
