Say Cheese!

I made this card this weekend using my all time favorite Cricut Cartridge Create a Critter.  I handle advertising at my job and we are working on making a new brochure and some new ads so I had to pick a number of residents to be models in the various pictures we were taking.  So I thought since they were all so accommodating and good sports about getting their pictures taken I would make them all thank you cards.  So this is what I came up with. On the inside it says "Many Thanks".  I had to make 18, which wasn't too bad once I came up with the idea, after that it was like an assembly line.

My Weekend Creations!

I have two swaps due this weekend and I finally got them completed yesterday. It felt good to get something done FINALLY!  The first item is a "Quote Card" It is 3x5 inches and it was to be an inspirational quote.  I love love love the quote I used from Winne the Pooh.  "If you live to be 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you."   I used DCWV Green Stack and Bazzill paper.  I used clack CTMH stamp pad.  Just random buttons and I have no idea where I got the Pooh and Piglet stamp.

This second item was a recipe page.  It is 6x6 inches and we were to do a Strawberry Recipe.  I spent tons of time going over recipes on and finally settle on this one.  I wanted something different and this was it, plus it had over a THOUSAND 5 star reviews so it must taste good too!  It is for Strawberry Pretzel Salad which is a little deceiving because it is NOT a salad but definitely a layered dessert.   I used Bazzill cardstock, generic cardstock from Joann's and my Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge for this layout.  The stamp in the bottom left is from My Pink Stamper Fruit and Veggie Punnies set and I just used my CTMH black stamp pad.  You can't really tell in the picture but the kitty and strawberry are popped up using Stampin Up dimensionals.
