Christmas card with Cricut New Arrivals cartridge Bitten By The Bug challenge

Well, this will probably be my last Christmas card for this season! I'm a lot closer to being ready than I was before the weekend started! I got quite a bit accomplished! My hubby Randy and I went shopping and took care of the grandkids! I was suprised we had enough room in the car to put everything in. LOL! We ALWAYS tend to go overboard with them. Oh well....what are Gramma's and PaPa's for??? LOL! And today, I made sugar cookies, several different kinds of chocolate candies, and canned some caramel sauce for ice cream tonight!! WHEW! I'm tired!!! :) Anyway, this week over at BBTB, Regina asked us to use the presents cuts from the New Arrival cartridge. I used some yummy sparkly paper a really good friend of mine sent me (thank you DeeDee!!!) *smile*
For the tag, I used my Nestabilities and a printable stamp I got from The Cutting Cafe!! LOVE those printable stamps!! I glittered the cardstock under the printable stamp with MS glitter. I just put my tag in my little xyron sticker maker upside down and then sprinkled the glitter on top. Works like a charm as it gives a very even coating of adhesive for the glitter!


The pearls are actually dew drops, and I added red stickles to the ribbons on the presents. The scalloped circle under the presents was cut with my Mini Monograms cartridge and then I used some chalk ink around the edges. I couldn't help but add some red rain dots into the scallops!
Please be sure and check out the rest of the designers projects with these presents over at Bitten By The Bug. And don't forget that Regina has a contest going on with a FABULOUS PRIZE from Sweet Arts Paperie!!!! Krista and Penny have the most awesome kits for sale!! If you haven't checked them out yet, do yourself a favor and head on over there! You won't be disappointed!!
That's all I've got for today! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and I will be back to blog hopping by the end of the week! I've actually got some much needed vacation coming up after the holiday!! Hugs to all of you and thank you so much for stopping by! Merry Christmas to each and every one of you!!
