Santa Challenge Winner

Hello and Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your day with family and friends.  It's such a special day and what better way to spend it than with your loved ones and sweet friends.  Brenda here to announce the winner of the Santa challenge.  Boy oh boy what fabulous projects you have linked up! I had a really, really hard time picking just one winner.  But after looking and then looking some more my eye kept coming back to this sweet tag by Shelly.  I loved how she took her tag shape and made a santa out of it by placing Santa's head on it and leaving the rest of the tag be her "body".  So cute and clever!  So Shelly, please email me at and I will get your blinkie out to you!!  Thanks to everyone for submitting such awesome projects, you guys always give me lots of inspiration and I'm always bowled over by your talented projects!  Have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy, healthy New Year!!  See you next year!

So without further ado look at the gorgeous projects the team have created for you this week and please join us in our challenge,  we love seeing your beautiful creations.  You can use any cartridge and lots of them have baubles and create a last minute card or maybe an ornament for your tree!

Make a Gift Bag or Gift Tag

Hello everyone!  Suzanne here with your challenge this week at BBTB2.  I hope you are all eagerly awaiting a new challenge after our break last week.  I know I was.  
Today is a big day of resting  for me.   The last few weeks I have been creating like crazy for the Charity Auction at my LSS last night.  I am now teaching there so  many of my creations went on sale for the Wounded Warriors  and Navy Relief Fund.  It was an amazing auction and crafty people are some of the most generous people on Earth.  
So on with the show-
This week I am challenging everyone to think about Gift Giving and decorate a gift bag or tag 
using a Cricut cut.   Although I am crafty  I often forget about this aspect.  It is so fun to give a well thought out gift in a gift bag, box or container that you took the time to create and with an adorable homemade tag.  
 So here are the lovely projects created by my amazing and talented Design Team sisters.  I know they will wow you as always.  
 Remember the post  will be going live with our Monday morning weekly posts 
will be going live at 7:00 am EST.
