Back 2 School

Good Morning!!!  I'm so excited to share with you so more great news.  But first, I would like to give a morning shout out to Diana with DL Art.  Tomorrow is her birthday.....  Happy Birthday to You!!!  Yesterday I told you that I had won one of her challenges and showed you what I won.  Well, today I would like to share what I made with my winning.

I used the pattern paper, the ladybug with sentiment, and the paper outlining her from Imaginisce "All Occasion" Build A Card.  I took white cardstock and ran it through my cuttlebug with a paper embossing folder.  Used my EK to stamp paper holes and inked Studio G "Yellow" all around. 

I tied some red ribbon around the card and made a bow.  The gold star I glued directly onto the white cardstock.


For the lettering, I used ProvoCraft repositionable Alphabitties in black.  They were just to cute to pass up.  Now, I can't wait to give it away to a lucky kid in the neighborhood.  Especially, knowing that it is their first day of school.

I've entered this into the following challenges:

DL Art - Happy Birthday "Anything Goes"
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Create a card/project for a teacher

Now for my final news!!!  Just over a week ago, I received an email from Diane - Owner of Exploring Cricut Blog.  She thanked me for entering into their "Christmas in July" challenge and wanted to know if I would be interested in being their Guest Designer on August 6.  Oh my gosh!!! Was I excited to read this email.  There was no special project required and sky was the limit.  However, they did ask that it contain at least one cricut cut.  I immediately responded and accepted her offer.  So tomorrow, August 6, 2012, I will be Guest Designer for Exploring Cricut Blog.  Come by and see what I made..................

In the meantime, have a wonderful Sunday.  I'll see you tomorrow..... Shawn


  1. Your card is too cute. Some lucky kid in the neighborhood is going to love it. I love how you punched the edge of the paper and the embossing is super. Your star and the itty bitty alphas are really nice
