I've been doing pretty good with my goal of entering challenges. I made this for several blogs. Happy Birthday Robyn from and then I really enjoy this other challenge they make it fun and eady. We needed to make anything b-day party related #35-anything-party-related. So I got a few challenges for one topic. yeh! cardztv-cupcake-challenge. Love her videos.
MS= framed card- the colors worked well with the color of the card. it opens up to a standing frame.
Cartridge= cupcake4 pg-27 That was a little bit difficult to figure out. The main button said N/A when I tried to cut it. Also the scalloped didn't match the size. I had to piece it together to work. I think I did OK. Any tips on this if you have the Cartridge???
Happy Birthday Pg-56- I used a glitter gelly roll pen(green star) to outline Happy
Paper=Me amd My BIG Ideas Ellen Love 8x8 pack.- Loving this paper for valentines and b-day.
The round epoxy sticker was in the pack also I just highlighted the heart to see it better. the "you" was already on it.

Love Heart Flower

I made this for two challenges,mypinkstamper and thebearyscrapdesignteamchallenge#18 I used some things I had not used in a long time like flock on the scalloped flower. I also added Glossy Accents on the heart and the LOVE.
Cartridges= Paisley, Accent Essentials
paper= Me and my big ideas-Ellen love 8x8 kit.
I used, for the first time. the centerpoint button on my cricut. the heart was on the paper and I wanted it in the center of a circle. I think it worked pretty good. I will be using this feature more often.
