Hi everyone, it's Enfys here this week, flying the flag for the UK - we are a cosmopolitan bunch here on the design team, Europe, Canada, and from sea to shining sea in the USA, all bound together with our common love of crafting and our Cricuts.
Thanks to everyone who joined in with the From My Kitchen challenge last week, I think we all enjoyed using that fabulous phone cut.

This week it was my turn to set the challenge, I chose the ribbon frame from the Joys of the Season cartridge, page 67, and as usual the team have come up with a fabulous variety of ways to use the cuts. Do join in if you have the cartridge = we love coming to visit and seeing all your creations......................

Before I show you the awesome projects, I would like to announce that we have a new BUG DESIGNER joining the team:
Jeri is one talented, amazing lady...
so please help us in welcoming her to the team...

First up this week is Krista, who made this gorgeous tree decoration, I love that grey paper and the vintage santa........
Krista Norman - Merry Christmas

look how pretty the cut looks in Penny's creation, super girly and oh-so-pretty.............
Penny Shuberg-Skates

Melissa Kirwan - JOY

Then we have this wonderfully romantic creation from Donna, who is a whizz with the Design Studio.....

Donna Mundinger - Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

I chose icy blue and white, my favourite colour combo this year, and of course I added a liberal sprinkling of bling..... Enfys Cashmore - Noel

Sandi has cleverly used the cut as a frame for her stamped image,Sandi Kelly-Season's Greetings

and another ornament from Carole, can you imagine how pretty this would look on the tree with lights twinkling around it................
Carole Lowe Beath - Hanging Frame

I love the rich burgundys and greens that Jeri chose, this would be a perfect card for a man this Christmas............ Jeri Thomas-Happy Holidays

Another romantic card, this time from Shelly, who always comes up with the perfect sentiment, she used the bird cut from JOYS, what a great gift for your sweetie............
