BBTB2: Cricut Frosty Cold Winter Card

Join in our challenges at Bitten By the Bug2 by linking up your project to the theme for the week.  To enter, you need a blog, Flicker, or Pinterest account.  Our theme this week is to use a Cricut cut featuring a scarf, mitten, coat etc.  Here is my creation, a Frosty Snowman with his top hat and scarf.  It was designed by Pat Johnson, who is posts her files on the FB group Cricut Design Space.  She uses basic shapes and performs her magic.  The snowman is from basic shapes as well as the background outline of the scene.  This was a really easy card to cut and assemble. A little bit of Stickles to round out the scene.  Have a great week.

Here are the cartridges used:
Hat:  Wedding
Fun: Cricut Font
Frosty:  Winter Frolic

Stampin' Up: Fall Leaf Card

I had two sympathy cards to get out today in the mail.  Here is one of them.  Done with Stampin' Up "Vintage Leaves" set.  I made several die cuts with a friends die and then I stamped them with my stamp set.  The background is a blend of Distress Oxides, love how all are different and do represent the falling of the leaves.  The embossed background is really a light lavender, hard to tell in the pic.  At the time, I left the sentiment section blank and just added it today.

BBTB2: Cricut - Thankful Heart for Thanksgiving

Where oh where does the time go?  It's Thanksgiving, time to reflect on our year, family, and our decisions throughout the year.  This year I am thankful for another healthy year, for losing weight and feeling better, for a third grandchild, and a great stock market!

I made a Thanksgiving sign that I put into an 8x10" frame that will go with my decor for the holiday.  I made it print and cut, but really if I had enough time, should have cut it out individually.  There were 3 cartridges used:

Turkey and plaid - Thanksgiving Table Decor
Thankful Heart saying - Phrases
Blue background - Songbird

Join in our "Thanksgiving - Anything Goes Challenge" over at Bitten by the Bug2 and link up your holiday craft or card.  Our hostesses have created Thanksgiving cards and such, inspiring your creativity, I hope.  The link can be found HERE.   Happy Thanksgiving.

BBTB2: Cricut - A League of Their Own Baseball Layout

This layout takes me way back as I used pictures of when my kids were little.  I had these in a double frame in my office and since I am in 'purge' mode these days, out went the frame and in went the pictures into a layout.  These pictures are over 20 years old, I had written on the back of one (so important to do) that my son was 9 at the time, he's now 31.  I've had that baseball paper for a long time too.

Our theme this week at Bitten By the Bug2 is a "book or movie theme", meaning you creation should be related to a book or a movie.  As you can see I picked "A League of Their Own" as my theme for the week.  Amy, from AOCreations, is our sweet hostess.   Join in our challenge and submit your project or card to our Bitten By the Bug2 blog Linky by using your blog or Pinterest links.
