Thank You Berry Much Card

Hello fellow crafters:) I made a Thank you card for Velma at Creatively Outta Control to say thank
your for hosting the July Tag swap and giving me the opportunity to join.  

When I was making my card I had Two challenges in mind, Peachy Keens June Sketch Challenge and Emma's Throwback Thursday Color Challenge at My Creative Time. (These will be the two challenges I enter my card in).

Heres Peachy Keens June Sketch and the colors for Emma's Color Challenge:

And heres my card:)

I used Peachy Keens PK-486 In Stitches Face Assortment & PK-293 The Cornies Face Assortment Stamp sets.

The Cricut Cartridge I used for the strawberry cut was "Rock Princess".  I really liked how my card turned out, and I Hope Velma does too. 

Thanks for stopping by:) 
Peace, Love, & Cricut Hug's!

1 tag for many projects :)

Hello fellow crafters, I just finish making a tag and a card that I will use for many projects & challenges:).

I made this cute card for my sister in-laws upcoming 30th B-day. Since her birthday is in June, I thought it would be fun to make a cute summer theme birthday card:) I will be entering this card into
Peachy Keen's: Challenge #20 Just Cards and StuckOnUSketches: I Love Summer challenge.

I'm going to be participating in Velma's July Tag Swap, and I will be making 22 of these cute little tags. I'm so excited I was able to get into the Tag Swap!

I will be entering the tag in My Creative Time's Throw back Thursday Challenge
 I knew I wanted to go with a birthday theme for the Tag Swap, because birthdays are awesome and for sure this way the ladies who receive my tag will get to use it in a scrapbook layout, mini, on a gift or on a card like I did. I also wanted to do something summer related because summer fun is just around the corner. So with the help of my Gypsy I ended up with this cute tag:).

Supplies used:
Cartridges: Ribbons & Rosettes, Once Upon a Princess, Life is a Beach, and TagsBags, Boxes & more.
Cuttle Bug and Mesh Cuttle Bug Folder
Peachy Keen's PK-660 Laughy Taffy Face Assortment
My Creative Time's Wow So Many Candles & Build a Banner Kit Stamp Sets
Stickles & Puffy Paint

I don't think you can tell from the picture, but I used Tim Holtz Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, & Dried Marigold to create the background color on the tag. I also added some Tattered Angels  Bronze Glimmer Mist to add some sparkle to it:)

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I love reading them, and they help as inspiration:)

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hug's!
