CHRISTMAS CHEER......CARD CHALLENGE and CONTEST

Before I get to the AMAZING challenge for this week, I wanted to welcome 3 new BBTB DESIGNERS to the team: Susan Edwards, Shelly Bobrowski, and Heather Binnie. All three of these ladies do amazing work and I am so excited to have them join the team...WELCOME LADIES...

Do we have an AWESOME challenge for you this week with an equally awesome NEW CONTEST...normally I post the contest on a separate post, but the challenge for this week has a lot to do with the contest sponsor this week....SCRAPNFONTS is sponsoring our next contest and my oh my do they have the most AWESOME FONTS AND DOODLEBATS ON THE NET...Many of you know that I am one of their Lucky designers so I can personally vouch for them that their FONTS AND DOODLEBATS are totally adorable, awesome and safe...just to name a few great things about them....They will be sponsoring two AWESOME PRIZES.....


1ST PLACE PRIZE OF $40.00


2ND PLACE PRIZE OF $20.00


Here is a little bit about Scrapnfonts:




ScrapNfonts.com is home to the best selection of creative scrapbook fonts at great prices. Shop cool fonts for digital and paper scrapbooking, exclusive Creating Keepsakes fonts, and Doodlebats--fun dingbat fonts.

Sign up for SNF news and get three free fonts! This scrapbooking newsletter ain't like the rest. Ours is quite charming & easy on the eyes. Try it. We're sure you'll like it.

Okay so here is the details for this contest. In keeping with helping get a lot of your Christmas Cards done early this year, you need to create a card using ANY CRICUT CARTRIDGE (yes any) and MAKE A CHRISTMAS CARD................but......whatever you make, the colors on the card need to be NON-TRADITIONAL.

For example: no green or white Christmas trees

no red Santa suit

no red sleigh

no middle part of the stocking being red

get the picture.

That's it....Other information about the contest:

All previous bbtb winner are welcome to enter.

Only 2 entries per person.

YOU MUST USE at least ONE cut from ANY cartridges.

International crafters are welcome.

YOU MUST provide a DIRECT LINK to your card in the comment section...(Please don't put my card is on my blog....sometimes I have a hard time finding it).

Deadline for entries: NOVEMBER 30, by midnight...(pacific standard time)

AND to help you all see how totally awesome the fonts and doodlebats are, the designers were asked this week to use the CHRISTMAS CARD from the CHRISTMAS CHEER cartridge....the cute one with the scallops on the edges. This card is a great card to be able to have a nice space to add lots of different elements on it..All of the designers used a font and or doodlebat from one of the amazing scrapnfonts sets called:

DB Tis The Sesaon Modern and SNF Classy Charm

If these projects don't get ya going, I don't know what will....(smile)...they all did an amazing job.

Ok, silly question...

How do you all get such beautiful pictures of your work? I'm sure it has a lot to do with the camera, but you seem to be able to capture every detail perfectly! I'm envious! :) Any tips?

It’s Christmas again!! A time to cherish the beautiful white snow, smiling snowman, brightness of the Christmas décor and the yummy candies and cakes! From November onwards it becomes impossible to forget that Christmas is coming. Well to be honest I personally wait for it so that I can return home to meet my parents and girlfriend of course!
With the passage of time lots of things about the celebration of Christmas has changed. I still remember when I was a kid, mom use to wait near the phone so that she becomes the first one to pick my brother call. We all use to have a fight as who is gonna be first to talk to him. Then I use to visit my relatives and friends with my parents who stayed near by.But now the net world has changed everything, especially the ecard trend. It’s so easy now to connect with our loved ones especially when you have so many ecard sites! One of free Christmas ecard site Being a new website meme4u.com really has fresh and cool greetings. The best part is if I write too meme4u.com regarding some card or idea they do take it seriously. Although the site has several errors but meme4u.com cards are really cool! So guys why don’t you check it out, you will also get the right ecard you are looking for! And if any one of you knows any other fresh ecard website do let me know!
