Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from the Bitten By The Bug 2 Design Team  members to each of you.  Because we too are spending the Christmas holidays with our families and friends, in our post this week we are sharing our favorite Christmas cards that we made this year.  You may have already seen some of the cards, but as they are our favorites, we hope they will be your favorites too! This is a non-challenge post so there will be no linky.  

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

It's Getting Cold Outside

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Emily here from Mollie's Motif with this week's challenge.  How is everyone's weather? I really thought we would be seeing colder temps where I am at, but the ski resorts had to close down because we keep breaking records of the warmest November... So my challenge, even though we are headed into winter isn't as applicable as I thought it would be, is all about warm winter clothing. Let's see all your projects featuring warm apparel, i.e., mittens, gloves, scarves, beanies, coats, etc. The design team has created some fun projects to inspire you.
