Hello! I sure hope it's warm where you are. Here in Western PA we are in our second round of the Polar Vortex and let's just say I'm getting pretty darn tired of it.
The card I created is for our Crafting By Designs new challenge that goes live on Wednesday, January 29th. The theme is Think Warm Thoughts. Create any project that makes you feel warm. Cindy is our fabulous hostess and Oak Pond Creations is our awesome sponsor. They have generously gifted one lucky winner 3 digis of their choice.
I have rekindled my love affair with my Cricut. I had a special order for a birthday party and that made me dig out the cartridges and .....well you know.... I'm addicted all over again.
The card base and card stock is Recollections from Michael's. The DP is from an old My Minds Eye stack. The cartridge I used is Create a Critter. One of my favorites.
I am also entering this card for the first time in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge
I wish I could remember how I came across their blog, but can not. The challenge this week for them is mix and match. 3 papers and a Cricut Cut.
I also came up with this one while I was creating in my messy corner. My son will be the lucky recipient. I would sing this song to him every night when he was little. On occasion I still sing it to him. He's going on 13 and is still very tolerant with me :)
 And last but not least, I am entering this card in Saturday's Paper ala Mode Recipe Challenge over at The Outlawz.

As always, thanks for stopping by. If you're not a follower of my blog, why not become one? Every one is welcome. Please drop me a line in the comment section and let me know you were here.
Keep Warm!
