CHILLIN' & GRILLIN' BLOG HOP!!!!

Hello and Happy Saturday Everyone!
I hope you are all ready for a fun Blog Hop today
to Celebrate SUMMER!!!! Yes... it's that time of
year where everyone wants to be outside grillin'
and chillin' out with their friends!
This is the Bug Bites Very first time Hosting a Blog Hop!
She also has a Challenge on her blog
for a chance to win a great prize... So make sure you
join in on the challenge right after you hop through
all the stops! :o)  So if you just got here
from Heather's Blog then you're on the right track!
If you've gotten lost along the way or missed some
other wonderful blogs Start here at Bug Bites!
I guess I will show you my project for this
Fun Chillin' & Grillin' Hop!

You guys are not gonna believe this but I actually
used (7) cartridges for this card! I Know I've shocked
a lot of you! Trust me I was shocked too when I realized
I needed to pick things from so many cartridges! :o)

Card Stock, Ink - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - DCWV
Peachy Keen Face Stamp - Happy Lashes 3/4"
Signo white gel pen, Apricot Zig Pen, Black Zig Pen
Cartridges - Pooh & friends (SUN) Cut @ 1 1/2" (2x's)
Life's a Beach - (Drink) Cut @ 1 1/4"
(Chair) Cut @ 2 1/2"
Live Simply - (Cricket) Cut @ 3/4"
Easter - (Grass) Cut @ 1" (5x's)
EDPD - (Grill) Cut @ 5 1/4"
From my Kitchen - (Steak) Cut @ 1 1/4"
Cuttin' Up - (Party Time) Cut @ 1 1/2"

I designed this card in my Design Studio when I was
trying to figure out what to make.... I normally
don't do Summer themed Cards so this was a
challenge for me... Which I think I did pretty good! LOL
Here is one of the hidden Critters you are looking for....
Can you see it in my Project? :o)
The next stop on our Chillin' & Grillin' Blog hop is
the TALENTED Peggy Sue! BUT.... Before you leave
I have some blog candy to give away!

Cricut Solutions Cartridge -Campout by Provo Craft

Since this is a SUMMER blog hop I thought it would be fitting
to giveaway the CAMP OUT Cartridge! I know we use to go camping during the
summer months and I figure a lot of you do! So if you would like to win
this great cartridge you need to be a follower or become one and
leave a comment! I will announce the winner on June 7th!
Thanks for stopping by and have an AWESOME DAY!!!
Theresa

  62. OMGoodness, this card rocks! How hard was it to make using 7 cartridges with Design Studio? I'm planning on buying that next month so I'd love to know how easy it is to work with or not. If you get a chance, please leave me a comment or an email. I'd be so excited to win this fun cartridge! I really, really want it, as I don't have it yet and it IS perfect for summer. ;) Thanks for the chance to win. I'm a new (happy) follower.
