You should have come from:

So for this month's blog hop, I chose
 to use the following cartridges:
Baby Steps, Campin' Critters and Doodlecharms.

For my first project, I used Baby Steps.
I wanted to make a non-baby
card using this cartridge.
I decided to use the stars from page 49
to make a patriotic card.

The stars were cut at 1", 1.5" & 2".
All the paper is from my stash.

I used the Cuttlebug "Stars" folder to emboss
the white background paper as well as the
cardstock cards.  I added Gems that
I got from Erica to the center of each star.

The sentiment is from Close to My Heart
"Shining Star" stamp set.
I used Zing embossing powder,
and added ribbon from my stash.

I am entering this card in this week's
challenge at FCCB

My next card was made using Campin' Critters.
The snake and all layers were cut
at 4" from page 43.  I used various
papers from my stash.
I embossed the light green layer using
the Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubble"
embossing folder on the light green layer.

The sentiment is from K. Andrews
 "All About Animals" stamp set. 
I stamped and embossed it using
Zing Embossing Powder.

The card base was cut using the sign feature.
The one I chose is from page 69.
The base and layer were cut at 5.6".
The paper is from Imaginise "Happy Campers" line.
I added twine in 3 different colors
and a little Distress Ink in Wild Honey.

Emboss It Challenge over at:

For my final card today, I used an oldie but a goodie!!
This cartridge is filled with cute and fun images
for any and all occasions!
I chose to use the popcicle from page 97.
I cut 3 of them and the layer at 2"

The melting drops are acutally raindrops cut
at 1.5" from Pooh & Friends.
I stamped the faces from
Peachy Keens May Stamp of the Month.
The background paper is from DCWV
"Sweet" matstack, and Coordinations.

I covered the popcicles with Glossy Accent
to give them a shiny look.
I also added Stickles in
Orange Peel, Cotton Candy and Eucalyptus
to make it look like the popcicle was melting.
I cut a chunk from the green popcicle,
with decorative scissors, as if
someone had taken a bite out of it!
That's why he is crying!!

 I finished off my card with a tag from Spellbinders
"Grommet Tags" die set.  The sentiment is from
Pink by Design "Simply Everything" stamp set.
I embossed is using Zing Embossing powder.
I attached the tag using some twine.

I am entering this card in the "Just Cards"

Cute! I always love to see when people use something under a certain category for something else. I only have a few cartridges so it's neat to see what is on the others.
