Ornament challenge

The Bitten by the Bug 2  challenge this week is to do something with an ornament, either make one or make a card with one on it. Since I'm so late starting I chose to do the card.

The ornament is from the Winter Wonderland cartridge. There are some wonderful images on that cartridge. The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Found Christmas. I cut it in such a way that the image on the paper became the sentiment on the front of the card. So quick and easy! The solid paper is Recollections, the metallic is DCWV. I used some clear Wink of Stella on the berries. 

Mojo Monday entry

I decided at the last minute to enter a couple of the weekly challenges that I really miss doing. This is Mojo Monday's for 12/15. It's not a great card, but it was pretty quick.

I designed the card in Design Space using the sketch and used the Winter Wonderland cartridge for the snowflake.

MCCR - Penguins

Ok, I have to admit I picked this post to do because my daughter LOVES penguins! She's all grown up, but they still bring out the kid in her.

Create a Critter and Create a Critter 2 have the best images for cards. This holiday guy is such a cutie. I cut him at 3" from Recollections card stock. The tree is from the Simply Charmed cartridge. I hid the face and shrunk it down so it would fit under the sentiment. There is red Stickles and Glossy accents on the sentiment as well as red, green and clear Stickles on some different pieces of the card. The embossing folder used in the background is from Darice. Those snowflakes in the corner were cut on the Explore at 3/4". This machine rocks!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

MCCR - Gingerbread

This card was made using images from Create a Critter 2 in Design Space.

All of the card stock is Recollections. The printed is from a 6 x 6 pack from last Christmas. These are such cute images and are super easy to work with. I added some red Stickles and some Glossy accents for a little dimension. It will be great to mail.

Fantabulous Cricut - Anything but a card

Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #240 Anything But a Card

This Weeks Sponsor

~This Weeks Challenge~
Create any project, that is not a card!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

My project this week is a gift rather than a decoration. My sister has 3 adorable grandbabies and I am sending each of them one of these for Christmas.

I'm still relatively new to the whole vinyl thing and had a little bit of trouble getting all the layers to work. It still turned out pretty cute. He loves tractors, and there's a bit of family history with John Deere,  so it should be a hit anyway. This cut came from the My World Classmates cartridge. There are some great cuts on the My World and My Community cartridges, check them out.  

Have a great week everyone!
