BBTB2 – Summer Solstice – Show Me the Sun

My mother was born on June 21 (the first full day of Summer) so this time of year has always been celebrated in our family.  Bitten by the Bug 2 has chosen this as the challenge for the next two weeks.  My daughter was also to be married on June 21 this year, but due to COVID 19, it has been postponed until next year.  I am still going to see her, so I did a super quick card for our challenge.


I searched for sun in Design Space and this image from Folk Art Festival came up and I thought it looked like one of those suns they show on the CBS show Sunday Morning.  The sentiment is from Small Talk Frames & Tags.  Using some scraps from my stash in yellow, orange and peach I cut it out and mounted it on blue cardstock.  Just a simple card, but very cheery looking. Have a wonderful start to Summer and enter your own project with the sun using your Cricut on the challenge here.  Be sure to check out all of the great designs from the other members while you are there. – Denise

Bitten by the Bug 2 Wedding or Anniversary Challenge

June is the month for weddings and that is the current challenge on Bitten by the Bug 2.


Like everything else this year, weddings are being effected by COVID 19 restrictions.  My niece was to be married in April and my daughter in June.  Both have postponed their weddings until next year.  Since I didn’t have an actual wedding to make a card for, I decided to make a general one and have in my stash.  This cut is from Summer Celebrations and is currently free on Design Space.  I cut it with gray and white cardstock from my stash.  The original cut is open to the inside, but I didn’t like the look, plus the sides were pretty thin.  I cut a piece of cardstock from the DCWV stack called Le Blanc and put it behind the front.  It was a quick card to make and is pretty classic looking.
