Xmas nativity or menorah

Happy Monday!  I'm trying to stay warm after a VERY cold snowy weekend here in KC-not a fan of temps in the negative numbers!  I'm looking forward to Christmas next weekend though, although I still have lots of shopping and baking to do.  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to use a nativity or menorah.  Below is one of my Christmas cards, using the nativity from the December 25th cartridge.  The stamp inside from Luke 2:11 is from a Stampin' Up set and perfect for my nativity cricut cut.  It's not too late to do a few special Christmas cards!!!  Or as I tell myself, the AFTER-Christmas Christmas cards, which will just extend the joy of Christmas even longer for the recipient, right?  It's never too late to send the Christmas card, lol!  The design team has some gorgeous cards to see at BBTB2 and you can link up your project there.  We have fun challenges and surprises planned at BBTB2 for 2017 and look forward to more cricut fun.  Have a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Xmas ornament card

Happy Monday!  Mine is not quite so happy, as I'm a little under the weather.  Hopefully some hot tea and Vitamin C will fix things right up.  My nurse self is also prescribing naps (the cure for most things, lol!).   Because there is no time to be sick with Christmas coming up!  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to use a holiday symbol like an ornament on a project.  This is another of my Christmas cards this year, using the ornament and word from the Joys of the Season cartridge.  The paper is all shimmer paper, which didn't photograph very well, but looks really pretty in real life!  Hope you will check out all the design team projects at BBTB2 and you can link up a project over there-good opportunity to make and share a special Christmas card!!!

Believe layout

Happy Monday!  It's December and time to get in the Christmas spirit!  As we have many holiday school music productions from the band and orchestra to attend over the next two weeks, I think I'll be feeling the Christmas vibes for sure.  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is to use Christmas wording on a project.  I used the Artbooking cartridge to make my Christmas layout below.  No fancy papers needed, just solid cardstock and Artbooking!  (Which is kind of rare for me, since judging from my craft area, I've never met a patterned paper I didn't like, lol!).  The team over at BBTB2 has some beautiful holiday projects to see and you can link up a project there this week to share:)
