Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #238 - Thanksgiving

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #238 Give Thanks
Thank You or Thanksgiving Card

This Weeks Sponsor

In honor of Thanksgiving I made this card with one of my favorite cartridges, Teddy Bear Parade. Yes, I have the subscription to Design Space, but I was so excited that this cartridge was in the November mystery box (see last post - and I'm sure there will be more). Now I can use it even if I decide not to keep the subscription, yeah!

To be honest, I'm not really thrilled with how the card turned out, but that's ok. I thought using the metallic paper (clearance at Michael's) would be good in the background, but I think it's too much. Plus, being the procrastinator I am and having a busy week at work, I had to take pictures before the Glossy Accents dried completely and it looks a little weird (and yes, I used my heat gun). 

The turkey bear was cut at 3" out of Recollections solid card stock and DCWV metallic card stock. There is a random piece of yellow in there that is stash paper. The circles are Spellbinders dies. I mentioned I used Glossy Accents on the red piece. There is some inking with Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week, and those in the US have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I think it's gorgeous, Lynn!! The metallic paper looks amazing!! That is the cutest turkey!! I've been known to use my heat gun with glossy accents, too ;)

    I've rediscovered my love for Cricut with my early Christmas gift of an Explore, so I love seeing projects using fun carts like this!! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving :)
