Bitten By The Bug 2....Pie

It's Monday and time for our new Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge. This week Krista picked the pie accessory cut off Paper Doll Dress Up. If you don't have Paper Doll Dress Up you can use any pie on a Cricut cartridge. Even though I have this cartridge I decided to use something a little different. I used the Kate's Kitchen Imagine cartridge. I had some "issues" making this card and started four different times--just couldn't find the groove. I did start laughing when I went to post my photo on the BBTB2 Blog. Mona and I must have been on the same page and picked the same cut. I felt better after I saw that. Thanks Mona :)

The sentiment I used is from the My Pink Stamper new release this past Friday Winter Treats and Sayings. You can see all the new releases HERE. Please make sure you stop at Bitten By The Bug 2 and see all the PIE creations by my talented Design Teammates. Then, make sure you make a PIE creation of your own and play along in the challenge with us.
