Thanks A Bunch #358

I got this great little image from Little Blue Button for the Anything Goes challenge over at Penny's
I made a shape card of bananas on my cricut from Wild Card 2 cartridge. 

Using Copic Markers, E00, E50, E15, E18, R02, and a black Copic Spica marker, a blue pen for the writing. 

The bananas had a lot of layers so the card built up nicely. I'm going to need lots of fun thank you cards after Christmas.

Come Join us over at Penny's Challenges where the challenge is anything goes.

Winter/scape - Fantabulous Cricut

   Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #315-WinterMake a project about the winter (sports, snow, etc)!Our sponsor this week is 

A $20 gift certificate which is incredible!!!

I made 4 snowflake boxes and napkin rings for our Christmas table setting.  The box and napkin ring are from Tablescapes Fall and Winter cartridge.  What a fun cartridge that is!!
I filled the box with Jordan Almonds.  In Italy these are called confetti and they are served with special or holiday meals.  When we lived there, I reveled in learning their traditions. I loved this sweet idea.  A little bit of sugar at the end of the meal is good for digestion. 

I made snowflakes for each side of the box from various other cartridges. I also made the felt flowers and put them in an old bedspring to further decorate the table.

Thanksgiving! Thanks! Giving!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #314-Thanks or Thanksgiving
Make a project about thank you cards or Thanksgiving projects.

The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at


This is my entry:

 This turkey is from the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter - one of my very favorite cartridges. The box is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.

This cute box is has a curved top that is held together by this tab.

I filled this turkey with peanut and plain M&Ms in Autumn colors.  It's fun how it opens up to this wonderful little treat.
I had to reinforce the legs of the turkey on both sides of the box to hold the weight of the M&M's.  Other than that this project was a quick project to put together.  I made 6 of them in quick order to put around the children's tables.

Make It Sparkle #313

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Fantabulous Cricut 
Monday challenge!

Challenge #313-Make it Sparkle

Make it sparkle with glitter, gems, etc!

This Weeks Sponsor

I used this really cute Bathtub image from Pretty Cute Stamps
I uploaded it and cut it with my Cricut, then cut the Duck Picture, Bubbles and Towel. The duck is from the New Arrival Cartridge and the Bubbles, Towel and perfume, shampoo bottles are from the Paper Doll Cartridge

I added Stickles to all the bubbles to make them sparkle and shine.
The sentiment printed on my printer - Wash Away Your Troubles with some Bubbles.

Image result for easel card instructions for display

This is an easel card so I always put the little instruction print on the back.

The paper is Fancy Pants 6x6 Christmas Papers.  I liked this paper because it looked like wallpaper.  I used clear vellum for the bubbles, accented the edges with blue crayola marker and added stickles for sparkle.
Come join us with your Cricut cuts at Fantabulous Cricut for some great prizes!
