BBTB2 Holiday Card Challenge!

Good morning my crafty friends, I hope your Monday is off to a great start! We are off for hubby's 2nd round of chemo, that will keep both of us busy for 5 hours. And while we are gone, I have a fabulous challenge for you by our own sweet and talented Michelle at BBTB2! She has challenged us to make a Holiday card for the upcoming Christmas season. Well I don't know about you, but I could use a hand in getting some more Christmas cards made. lol I do a mix of store bought cards and handmade cards. I used the Teresa Collins December 25th Cricut cartridge to do my card, the Martha Steward branch punch, my background paper and sequins came from Target, and I also used some Christmas red stickles. I used some left over gold glitter paper as well. I have no clue as to where I got my sentiment from, but it is one that I love. This is just a simple card with some extra matting. And even though it is simple, I love how it came out!  I hope you will go see what awesome inspiration my design team sisters have for you over at BBTB2 and then maybe join in with us, we love when you get crafty with us!!  As always thanks for stopping by and visiting me. I'm very thankful you stopped by today! Crafty hugs, Brenda

Brenda, this card is beautiful. The prettiest one I've seen with the nativity scene. Still praying and wishing all of you a peaceful and beautiful Thanksgiving.

This is lovely, and I like everything you have on it. My favorite of the Christmas themes, and your candy cane paper made it sparkle as did your star golden glow. A perfect sentiment inside too! Hugs & now that Monday is over, I hope Tuesday was a better day for you both. TFS.
