Mittens winter card

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Much turkey was consumed at my house and despite smoking TWO turkeys, all the turkey was sadly gone by about 10:00 AM on Friday.  Maybe we need to up that to three turkeys next year.  Teen boy appetites are truly boundless!

Are you shopping Cyber Monday?  I could not pay me enough money to venture forth on Black Friday to shop.  Shopping from home in comfy fleece and fuzzy socks is how I roll.  Amazon prime, baby!  I plan to do a little craft supply shopping among the Christmas gifts-do you think hubby will notice?  LOL!!!!!  So our BBTB2 challenge this week is acknowledging winter cold-use a coat, jacket, scarf, or mitten cricut cut on your project.  While it's been rather unseasonably warm here, I know the cold will get here eventually.  I used the Jolly Holiday cartridge for the mittens and Elegant Edges for the scalloped squares on my card.  Hope you will join us this week for some crafty fun and you can link your project up over at BBTB2.

Happy Monday!  Are you looking forward to maybe having a day or two off for Thanksgiving this week?  I know I am!  We are hosting Thanksgiving for some of our extended family plus a random college student or college freshman is bringing home some classmates who live too far away to get home for the holiday, meaning we are feeding a lot of teenage boys.  So my husband is smoking not one, but TWO turkeys and we are planning on cooking up lots and lots of food!  I'll let you know if there are any leftovers, lol.  We only did one turkey last year and had to eat frozen pizza for supper on Thanksgiving day as the kids mowed down ALL the food for lunch.  Live and learn, right?

Moving on to crafty matters, our BBTB2 challenge this week is an anything goes Thanksgiving challenge.  I used the new CTMH You Are Here cartridge to make a layout for some of the photos I plan to snap over the holiday.  I did a little stamping (which you can't see very well in the big pic, so I added a few closeups) for accents.  The design team has shared Thanksgiving projects over at BBTB2 and you can link one up this week as well.  I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving!

based on a movie or a book

Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 theme this week is "based on a book or movie".  There is a story about my layout this week, which is based on the Disney movie Sleeping Beauty.  Several years ago we went to Disney World and to my great surprise, my preteen and teen age boys begged to meet the princesses.  So along with all the little girls dressed in princess gear, we slogged through a huge line until magically, there were Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Belle.  The boys were starstruck!  It was their favorite thing they did on that trip....who would have guessed?  Not me!  While I have most of the pics from that trip scrapped, I never got around to doing all the princess pictures, so Sleeping Beauty got her layout with the fellas.  Hope you will join us with a book or movie inspired project this week!  You can see the DT projects over at BBTB2.

superhero birthday card

Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge theme this week is superheroes.  I have some family birthdays over this next few weeks, so I made a superhero birthday card with one of the adorable birds from 3 Birds on Parade.  Doesn't he look splendid flying off to greet the birthday boy?  Now I've got to come up with a suitably super gift!  The design team has some "super"  :) projects involving superheroes over at BBTB2 and you can link up a project there all week.
