Our boys go back next Wednesday, the 25th! Kinda weird, actually! They go back for a few days, then have a vacation weekend for Labor Day! The school system in NC is quite a bit different than what I was used to living up North, but both my boys LOVE school and do very well, so I guess it works!

For the first time in awhile, I have made a card that is Completely Cricut!!

The apple and tag are from K Andrew Designs and cut BEAUTIFULLY!

I love that it was downloaded, opened in SCAL and cut… no editing needed!

The card is from SVG Cuts, the Breezy Backyard Lever Cards Kit

I’ve used LOTS of their “Freebies” but finally bit the bullet and purchased a kit!

WOW! WOW!! WOW!!!

Talk about easy-peasey!! Open the file and import into SCAL and cut, cut, cut!

Everything is already perfectly sized and proportioned and all the “Extras” really make it worth the purchase price!

The paper for this card is DCWV Grade School Stack. It’s tough to photograph, but the papers are all glittered and textured! FUN! FUN!! FUN!!!

I’m going to enter this into a challenge at Delightful Challenges by Louby Lou. Typically, they ask (but do not require) that one of their images are used, but the challenge is a Back To School using Primary Colors, so this fits!

The challenge at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is Anything Goes, so I’m entering there too!

Over at Bugaboo Stamps, the Catch the Bug Challenge is Back to School and there’s a chance to win Bugaboo Stamps!

Enjoy the Small Things, thank you card

Whew! For some reason, this card took me all week to put together!

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments Digital Designs was to use THREE papers

and for some reason, I had a lot of trouble with this one!

I finally decided on 3 papers from DCWV.

I created the sentiment/wordart in Inkscape.

Thank you to Paulette at Create with TLC for the Inspiration.

She has been posting FREEBIES all week

and gave me enough encouragement to try to make one myself.

I think it turned out OK and fit with this card!

I took the picture outside, so it’s SUPER-BRIGHT!

The Sunshine is a Cricut cut from Doodlecharms.

I cut it out of “Peel & Stick Glitter Foam”

that I picked up at Walmart.

The Challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2

was to create a card that includes:

fall colors, a Cricut cut and a Stamp.

The ADORABLE image was my “Special” Freebie

from Paula at Tales from Pollycraft.

What a SUPER-GREAT challenge this was!

Use the new, exclusive FREEBIE in a new GREEN card.

Post it.

GET A NEW FREEBIE!

YAY!

And the new image was awesome to work with!

Maybe the reason it took so long to put together

is that I decided to follow a sketch

from Crafty Sentiments

I turned it on its side for this card.

Trying to figure out a layout with THREE papers

with fall colors

and that cute image

and my sentiment

plus a Cricut cut

was quite a challenge.

But that’s what CHALLENGES are for, right?

And I think I pulled it off well enough

to submit my entry into those 4 challenges!

INSIDE:

Inside this card is a special SURPRISE!

Last week, at SVG Cuts they were giving away

a pop up cards SVG kit with any purchase.

I loved the look and style,

so created one similar in Inkscape.

Here is the SVG file I created.

Here is the SCUT file I created for Sure Cuts A Lot.

I used a font called “Bobo”, which is similar to “Hobo” but it was FREE!

Quick recap:

So, I am entering this card in the following 4 challenges:

Crafty Sentiments, Challenge 27 (sketch)

Tales from Pollycraft (Flash your Freebies, Part 2)

Crafts and Love (3 Papers)

and

Bitten By the Bug 2 (fall related, including a Cricut cut and a stamp)

WISH ME LUCK (-:
