Now, if you can my way from Exploring Cricut then you are headed in the right direction. If you just happened to stop by and visit, well Thank You! Why don't you hop along with us then. If you get lost along the way you can come back by and check a list of the stops at the end of my post.
For my card today I went with the 3 Birds on Parade Cartridge. I have sorely neglected this great cartridge. I cut the darling Cowboy 1 that can be found on page 38. I cut him at 3.5 inches. I so love the banana across his face and that cool hat. I used some glossy accents on his eyes and did a little bit of doodling. The sentiment is from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I stamped it using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Punched it out with a 1 1/2 circle punch. I also punched a 1 3/4 inch circle to go behind it. I then took some Cappaccino Solid Twine from The Twinery and made a lasso around the sentiment. Did a little bit of doodling with my white gel pen. Finished off my card with some brown little buttons from my stash. The bg paper is open stock from Hobby Lobby.
I hope ya'll like my card!!! :)
I hope you will join us for our challenge. You will have until 10pm, EST Saturday, Oct. 12th to link.
Check out the rules for our challenges in the side bar at Exploring Cricut. There will be blog candy offered there. There also may be some along the hop. You will just have to visit everyone and see. I will be offering some blog candy myself. I have been dying and crinkling my own ribbon. So I will be giving 4 different colors. I will be using random.org to pick the winner and will post late Saturday night Oct. 12th. You don't have to be a follower, but I do ask that you have a U.S. address. I'm sorry I can't ship anywhere else. The winner will have a week to contact me with a way to get in touch with you.
Now I want to say: Happy Birthday Exploring Cricut!!!! Thank you Diane for allowing me to be on this awesome Design Team. I am loving it and can't wait to see where this next year will take us.
