Hello June is a busy month full of graduations, Fathers Day and Weddings. The theme for the DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY CHALLENGE #230 is Weddings.  You can always substitute a Thank You card. For this challenge I made a card to thank my friend for the beautiful birthday gift she gave me.  I received a pretty pink and gold polka dot apron along with a lot of fun pink utensils.  Sweet Love from the Sweet bundle was the perfect shade of pink crinkle ribbon.

I began with an A@ sized card which I covered in DCWV rose gold glitter paper. The next layer is My Minds Eye "Fancy That"  .  Next I added an Anna Griffin border and the pretty pink Sweet Love crinkle ribbon.  The apron and utensils are My Creative Time

Hello.  It has been a while since I have entered any challenges.  This year has been crazy so far-2 breakins and 4 minor car accidents.  It seems as if every time my phone rings there is some kid of catastrophe.  This week has been calm.  So I decided to enter a few challenges.  Die cuttin Divas are having a "Favorite Color Combination" Challenge.  My favorite color for cards is pink and purple.  My favorite colors for clothes are black and mustard.  Fantabulous Cricut are having a "3 Dimensional" Challenge and Cut it Up Challenges are having a "Cat or Dog" Challenge..  I love to make dog projects-they are my favorite
My new favorite feature of Cricut Design Space is Print and Cut.  Recently I got the new Anna Griffin "Window Box Card" digital image set.  I used the base and the sign.  The puppies are from the "Pet Shop" cartridge.  I flattened all of the dog images and then print and cut them.  Then I played around with the images to fit them into the box.  The pink paper is Doodlebug and the pink and purple paper is Prima
