I just hate it when I cannot post new projects and visit my favorite blogs on a regular basis!!  Phooey :0(~  It's just been so hard for me to do much crafting on a regular basis lately.  Between long work days, the holidays and just everyday life my crafting has had to take a temporary backseat. While I have done some crafting here & there, it has not been enough!!  Sigh :0(  Anyway, I just want to take a moment to say "THANK YOU" to all of you who have decided to stick around with me and I promise to get back into the swing of things soon :0) So with that in mind I wanted to share with all of you what was supposed to be my Christmas Card this year.  Notice how I said "supposed" to.  I was unable to finish them all in time and get them mailed out this year.  But hey, atleast I am ahead for next year ;0)  Here are all the details of my card:

Card size is: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Solid Cardstock & Patterned Paper: Recollections
Cartridges:Jolly Holidays (Gingerbread @ 3.10") & Elegant Edges (Mats @ 3.80" & Shadow @ 3.85")

Cricut 360 - Challenge #12 - Native American Day


Hi everyone and Happy Friday!
I am so happy that the weekend is finally here, I look forward to it all week long!!  First, there is always the wonderful challenges over at Cricut 360 to look forward to. If you haven't stopped by yet, please make sure to drop on by and play along with us.  As for the rest of the weekend, some very much needed rest and as much crafting as I can squeeze in.  Although, no matter how much I try to squeeze in........it's never enough!!  I am sure many of you can relate. But anyway, it's here now so lets jump right into the weekend :0)   Okay, so for this week's challenge over Cricut 360 you had to make a card or layout with any Cricut cartridge and the theme is celebrating Native American Day.  I immediately knew which cartridge I was going to use. I have been eagerly wanting to play with the "Thanksgiving Cartridge " ever since I bought it earlier this year.  I am so happy that I finally got to use it:0) So here are all the details of my super simple card.

Card size is: 6x6
Cart used: Thanksgiving Seasonal Cartridge
Solid cardstock: Recollections
Patterned Paper: DCWV "Autumn Splendor
Amber Colored Rhinestones

This was super easy to make and I really love the images on here. I am definitely planning on using this cart again...perhaps a layout this time.  So stay tuned for that ;0) 

So now it's your turn to show us your interpretation of this challenge.  Again, any cartridge you want to use is fine.  I hope my project has inspired you and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT ladies.  There is plenty of inspiration along the way.

Crafty Hugs,
Diana
