New Cricut Blog!!!

Hey Ya'll,
ProvoCraft has started a new blog for all things Cricut!
They are doing prizes for becoming a follower!  Check it out!

So... To celebrate, how about a quick project?  This is a very quick card we put together for the Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge.  For the challenge, you have to play tic-tac-toe.
So... We chose to use the left side.  It started out as the bottom row, but the cuttlebug things we were trying didn't work with the flowers... so... this is what we ended up with.
 We used the Imagine and the Better Together cartridge for this.  We edited the sun background layer to a yellow color.  It was a redish-pink in the original artwork.  Everything including the background paper is from this cartridge.
We used lots of stickles to highlight rays of sun and to accent the flowers and butterfly.  We kept the inside very simple and used a solid black base for the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure you check out the new Cricut Blog!  It's going to be so much fun!!!


  1. Hello, my wonderful family-friends!!! Wanted to drop by, and to let you know how much I've missed you and to just say "hi"!

    I know you probably thought I'd forgotten about the award you passed on to me; of course I didn't and I'll be posting it tomorrow -- trying to think of who I'm going to pass it on to -- that's a tough decision you know (lol). Thank you again for thinking of me, I always appreciate you and your kindnesses. You're just wonderful!

    I do hope is going much better now, and I'll be back again soon!

  2. P.S. Thanks for the heads up on the new Cricut blog -- there's so much I seem to not be aware of -- I've really got some catching up to do!!!
