BBTB2 - Winter Activities

Happy Monday!

Today over at BBTB2, a new challenge has
started all about Winter Activities -
Sledding, Skiing, Ice Skating,
none of which I am fond of ;)
I even live in Utah :o - LOL!

For my card I decided to create an invitation for
an Ice Skating activity the Young Women in my area are
going to be doing next month.

The skater comes from Winter Frolic
and my papers are from a pack I picked up at
a warehouse sale for American Crafts.

The sentiment is from a Fiskars set
and I topped it off with a fun glitter gem.

I hope you will join us this week over at BBTB2!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Elvis

Happy Monday!

And HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope things have settled down for you all now that
the holidays are over and school is back in session...
I know it has for me :)

This week over at BBTB2
we are celebrating Elvis' Birthday :)

We want to see Elvis inspired projects.
I naturally pulled out my Nifty Fifties cart to search
for the cut I wanted to use and when I saw
this one I immediately thought
"Blue Suede Shoes".

One of my goals this year is to use as much scrap paper
as I can on my projects instead
of starting with new pieces,
so I can't tell you exactly where my b/g papers 
are from - you'll have to forgive me :)

The sentiment is from a Fiskars set.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 for this fun challenge!

BBTB2- Nativity

It's Christmas Week!

Awesome!

Today over at BBTB2 we have another Christmas/Holiday
Challenge-
Use a Nativity or Menorah.

I chose to use the Nativity from Winter Frolic.
I used a PKS baby face instead of the cuts from
the cartridge. I think it is adorable.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Happy Monday!
Today I am hosting the challenge over at BBTB2!
I decided on using a Holiday symbol,
such as an ornament or menorah.


I used Winter Frolic for this fun ornament.
My background paper is from The Paper Studio.
The ornament paper is from my scrap stash and
I used some silver glitter paper for the add ons.
My sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 for this
Holiday Challenge.

Cut It Up - Tic Tac Toe

Happy Friday!

Welcome to December and
the Christmas Season!

We are in full swing over at Cut It Up Challenges
with today's challenge!


Our Sponsor:
Prize: $5 Store Credit

My Project:

Digital Delights donated some super cute digi's for us
to choose from for our DT Projects,
I chose this adorable elf.
Now remember digi stamps and coloring are not my
strengths, so please forgive the amateur job.

Anyway, the Tic Tac Toe combo I chose was
Embossing, Glitter, Elf.
My Embossing is the red mat with Holly.
The Glitter is on the hat; 
I used Wink of Stella on the white front,
it's just hard to see in the pick.
I also added a glitter gem.

I hope you will join us over at Cut It Up
for our Holiday Tic Tac Toe challenge.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Happy Thanksgiving

Hello! Happy Monday!

Today over at BBTB2 we are challenging you
to include the word "Thanks" or "Thanksgiving"
on your cards or projects.


I found this "Happy Thanksgiving" phrase on the
Create-A-Critter 2 cartridge and wanted to use it.

I found some fun fall colored papers and layered them
to create this card.

I was lucky enough to have some Enamel Dots
that coordinated, so I used those to embellish.

I hope you will join us this week over at 
BBTB2!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Holiday set.
