A new challenge by Bitten By The Bug

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! We went Saturday and picked out our tree and it was sooooo cold!! Talk about putting you in the mood for Christmas! Thank goodness they had a nice warm fire in a barrell for us to get warm every once in a while. It was all worth it though, cause we found the most beautiful tree!

Today's Bitten By The Bug challenge is from the sweet and talented Enfys, and she picked the ribbon frame from the Joys of The Season cartrdige. What a pretty frame! I just had to use my new #3008 Sitting Tilda with Candy that I got from Magnolia-licious. Isn't she so pretty?


I thought she looked awesome propped right into that frame. DP is Bo Bunny and cardstock is Bazzil. I stitched around the panels and added a big red bow with a Christmas charm and some red Kaiser pearls. That's it for my card today! Please be sure and visit Bitten By The Bug to see the fabulous creations from the rest of the design team!

I also have a couple other things to tell you about. First, we will be celebrating a new release of Wags N Whiskers stamps this week! The sneak peeks of these fabulously adorable stamps will start on Wednesday, and the sneak peeks will culminate on Friday with a blog hop! Please be sure and join us for all the fun and there will be prizes on Friday too!!!

Also, Peggy over at Peggy Loves Vintage has some free gorgeous Christmas tags up on her blog. Just click on the tag, save it to your computer, then print it whatever size you want. They're beautiful! What a wonderfully easy way to dress up a package or gift bag!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Have a fabulous week!! hugs!

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

This is stunning Sharon. Love that dp, your layout and your gorgeous coloring of Tilda. So festive and well put together.

We have not found a Christmas tree. We plan to look this weekend. It gets so dry here that there would be needles left on the tree by the time Christmas comes. Glad you found one.
hugs,
Chris

Jan McConnell said...

I love the way you have her sitting on the bottom of the frame and I love red no matter what the season. As I read about shopping for your tree I tried to think whether I missed looking for one in the snow and cold or not. In some ways I do, always the memories. Christmas in Florida is entirely different for someone from the midwest. It never seems like Christmas to me. Well it is suppose to be about Christ and family, so as long as I have that I am ok.

Cheryl said...

Love the frame! This little tilda is so pretty in her Christmas dress! I have some of that holly paper! Yo've inspired me to get going with it!
