Cricut Cardz Challenge #64

WOW! I made it before the midnight deadline!! The challenge for Cricut Cardz this week was to use any cartridge to made a bookmark. The Indie Art cartridge has been retired but it has some amazing cuts on it. I LOVE the "pop art look" of the rose... and the guitar was just fun and "Reading Rocks" is a great sentiment for a tween. I used my new EK border punch.

M. A. G. Challenge #16

This week's M.A.G. Challenge was from the Pooh and Friends cartridge, page 43. This page features Rabbit, my very favorite Pooh character! (I love his dry, bossy attitude.) The other item on the page is a basket of apples. I am really not quite ready to think about Easter... and apples seem like fall to me... so I was a little bit "stuck" as to where to take this card. I googled quotations from Pooh's Rabbit and one thing lead to another until I found the quote I used on this card (NOT from Pooh!!) Hooooray! Rabbit and a basket on a St. Paddy's Day card.

I have to admit, this is the first time I have used such detailed layering (like on Rabbit.) Maybe it is time for a new blade because I just am not really pleased with the way it looks -- not real "sharp."
