Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! It's Donna here, your host for this week's Bitten By the Bug challenge. Before the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season I thought it might be nice to take a minute to reflect upon our lives and give thanks for our bountiful blessings. The cornucopia (found on page 63 in the Paper Doll Dress Up manual) to me is a symbol of plenty and I certainly feel I have plenty to be thankful for, not the least of which are the friendships I have made through my association with Bitten By The Bug. My Design Team Sisters and I truly appreciate your participation and support and would love for you to join in our Thanksgiving challenge by linking your projects by MckLinky at the bottom of this post. Also, don't forget our current contest sponsored by Scrap 'n Fonts. Click HERE for details. So without further ado, let me present the fabulous Design Team creations for this week.

Hello Bitten By The Bug Fans!

DeeDee here this week to offer up a brand new challenge for you Cricut lovers! This week the design team was surprised with some yummy new dingbats and a font from WOW! There are lots of fun little images in this set called DB Mulberry Lane and the font is one of the cutest I've seen in a very long while, it's called LD Outline Curl.

Please stay tuned this week for a new contest sponsored by Scrapnfonts! Woohoo!
Okay, on to the challenge I've chosen for you this week. I asked the team to use the GRASS from the Walk In My Garden cartridge. Oh my goodness! What cuteness they've all created this week! The combination of Cricut and Scrapnfonts made for very wonderful creations! If you have this cartridge, we'd love it if you'd play along with us and then post your project via McKlinky at the end of this post.

Enjoy the wonderful eye candy below and don't forget to keep checking back this week for the new contest! Have a lovely day! HUGS!

Good Morning and happy Monday to all. My name is Carole and I am just so very excited to be the host of this week's Bitten By The Bug challenge. Last week that wonderfully talented Carla started us on the new hosting program and I am thankful I had her lead to follow. I asked the designers to use the Storybook Cartridge, and to design something using the pretty bird. I love this bird and since winter is approaching I thought it would be fun to have one last fling with spring....
I am pleased to show below the wonderful cards from the designers. And I hope that you will play along and make a card for the challenge by attaching it with Mr. Linky.

Also don't forget to check out the latest contest going on right now....CLICK HERE for details...We have the wonderful online store called: DREAM DESIGNS sponsoring the BBTB.
