Home for the Holidays - BBTB Challenge

Happy Monday to YOU!!! I have decided that it is time for ME to start my holiday this week when Regina from Bitten by the Bug asked us to use the home cut from the Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge.....I decided to make a gift bag. This is just a little brown paper bag that you can buy in a bundle at WalMart for a few dollars. I made the "snow" at the bottom with one of my Martha Stewart border punches. The "peace & joy" is a vellum piece that was in a DCWV Christmas stack I got for Christmas last year....what an easy way to make a sentiment for your project!!!!
The big snowflake is from Joys of the Season....Cricut's other Christmas cartridge and of course the tag and little home are from Christmas Cheer. See the embossing on the tag....that's one of my new Cuttlebug folders called "Christmas Ornaments"....isn't it neat looking? I also added some Stickles to the snowflake and the "snow" on the home...just for a little added fun!!! Lastly, I tied the tag on to the bag with a big piece of SU! white ribbon. I love the warm glow coming from the windows....I bet they have a warm cozy fire going in there....LOL!! It's still way too hot for a fire here in Texas, but hopefully we will get cold enough for a fire this winter. Please be sure to go see all the other ladies projects over at Bitten by the Bug...they are all just amazing!! THANKS for popping in to see me today....have a wonderful week!!!

Did you know that Martha Stewart is having a BLOG contest......check it out HERE!!!
