I Entered my 1st Challenge!


Hello Everyone !
I am sorry it has been a few days since my last post but our power was out all weekend due to storms and I did not have access to the internet. With that said, I would like to start this post by saying that I have decided to enter my very 1st challenge ever! The challenge is being hosted by Momo over at MadebyMomo.blogspot.com The prize is the "Cindy Loo" Cricut cartridge". Please click on Momo's button link on the right side of my blog to visit her and enter the challenge. The challenge is to make a card incorporating spots and dots. I made a card using the "Create a Critter" Cricut cartridge and my favorite tool besides the Cricut my "Cuttlebug". I used a card base that was green with white polka dots. I then cut the turtle, message balloon, heart and grass using "Create a Critter". I embossed the turtle, the turtle shell, the grass, and the message balloon with my Cuttlebug folders. The CuttleBug folders I used were "Swiss Dots", "Spots and Dots" and "Distressed Stripes". I absolutely love how this card came out. I had no real plan. I just created this card on the spot. It was so much fun! I hope to enter more challenges in the future and I encourage any newbies out there like me to get your craft on and enter this challenge. Thank You Momo for hosting this challenge. I can't wait to see what my new crafty friends create for this challenge. Have fun everyone and good luck!

Happy Crafting!

Abbey
