Hanging of the Greens

Hello, Crafty Friends!  This is Laurie from Crafty Sisters Creations to introduce the challenge for this week--HANGING OF THE GREENS.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, but now it's time to turn our thoughts to Christmas!  One of the first things we usually do to get ready for Christmas is decorate.  I love to decorate my home by going GREEN with evergreen boughs, sprigs of holly, garlands, wreaths and mistletoe. And you can't forget a few beautiful poinsettias!

So the challenge this week is to create a project with a Cricut cut of traditional Christmas plants--evergreen trees, holly, ivy, mistletoe, poinsettias, etc.  Check out the beautiful artwork created by my fabulous design team sisters below and then link up your own projects to join the BBTB2 fun!  Let's all HANG THE GREENS this week!

"Thanks" Challenge

Welcome to a new week with Bitten By the Bug 2. I am L.B. from Cool Beans by L.B. and I get to host this week's challenge. 

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for friends and family and being thankful for what we have in our lives. That is why I decided that this week's challenge would be to include the word "Thanks" on your Thanksgiving themed projects. 

 I am giving "thanks" for the wonderful design team I get to work with here at BBTB2 and hope you gather some inspiration for your projects as well. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
