Pinecone Christmas card

 Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe it's almost Christmas?  The presents are mostly wrapped under the tree and cookies are baking as we speak.  While we are FaceTiming in the grandparents to keep us all safe, I'm grateful for technology that will allow us to virtually be together.  I still love getting good old fashioned Christmas cards from family and friends, so I'm sharing another one I sent out this year featuring a pine cone.  Don't forget, we still have our challenge running over at the BBTB2 blog with Double Trouble for any Christmas project using any die cutting machine.

 Happy Wednesday!  I've finished making Christmas cards and thought I'd share one below.  I'm getting them all in the mail today!  There's only one more Christmas gift to order and most of my online orders have come in-yay!  Santa's elves are clearly very busy working for UPS, FedEx, and Amazon this year.

Christmas layout

Happy Monday!  Are you hanging in there in this December 2020?  I hope you are all able to find a few moments for some joy in the season.  Crafting is sort of my happy therapy during these difficult times, and I had fun planning and making some Christmas scrapbook layouts and cards this week. 

The BBTB2 challenge for the month of December is a partnership with Double Trouble.  You can go read the exact challenge requirements over at BBTB2, but essentially it is a Christmas themed challenge and you can use any type of die cutting machine this month, not just a cricut.  There are some optional twists and prizes involved too!  I used the Close to My Heart Artbooking image collection for all the cuts on this project and I love how it turned out!  All ready for some Christmas pictures!  Take a look over at the BBTB2 site to see the other design team projects and you have the whole month to link up a project and maybe even win a prize!
