BBTB2 Challenge Time!

Hi my crafty friends!  It is Monday so that means it is time for another BBTB2 challenge!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  My family traveled to NY then to Iowa and had Thanksgiving with our 5th son and his soon to be wife.  It was so nice and we enjoyed our trip very much.  We are so blessed in so many ways!  Now for my project, my super sweet and very talented friend Suzanne picked our theme and it is "gift giving" - decorate a gift bag or tag using Cricut die cuts, so I chose to do a tag.  My tag is from Plantin School book cut at 4.75, my Nativity (don't remember the size-sorry) came from Teresa Collins Dec. 25th Cricut cart, my paper is from an old Martha Steward Christmas paper pack-I think and I used my Martha Steward branch punch, as well as a Creative Memories star punch that I made 3D, a Viva Pearl Pen and some red crystals.  I think my ribbons came from Hobby Lobby and the tiny button is from JoAnns, the hemp is from Wal-Mart. I also took a page from an old Bible that a pastor was throwing away and placed on my tag, I inked it using Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink of our Savior's birth.  I think that is about it.  I hope you have enjoyed my tag and now it is your turn. Just remember to use your Cricut and follow our simple rules which you can find at BBTB2.  Please check out my Design Team Sisters as I know they will have some amazing projects for you and please don't forget to leave some bloggy love for them as well.  Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!!

It truly is the perfect cut for this season. Glad you had a wonderful holiday.

Sounds like a wonderful trip, Brenda! what a perfect time to visit family. Your tag is just beautiful! Love the cut and the gingham, but the Bible verse behind is just inspired. Fabulous! xxD

Now THIS is my kind of style. Love these papers & the way you combined them, with the Bible verse brought in as well, and especially the Nativity. Hard to find images that really reflect the true meaning of the season. Your green branch over the Holy Family is just the perfect touch. Very lovely. TFS
