Cricut Cardz Challenge #2, The Gypsy Spot Shapes, and Simon Says "Animal Antics" Challenges

Wednesday, November 18, 2009
So this card came to me this morning while I was in bed.  I just stumbled upon the Simon Says challenge this morning and saw the challenge was "Animal Antics."  I have this adorable digi I got as a freebie, the squirrel stuffing his face, and I thought he would work perfectly.  Sorry, I can't remember where I got him from.  I think it might have been at Dustin Pike.  So I had then seen that the Gypsy Spot had the challenge of shape cards this week.  Well then I scowered my cartidges for an acorn.  Stretch Your Imagination has one, but it is in two pieces and wanted to cut out differently when welded and unwelded, but I made it work.  Also the second Cricut Cardz Challenge is a Thanksgiving card.  I thought it was cute to have the squirrel saying "What?" with the inside saying "I'm Thankful."  Hope you enjoy the card.

Oh and by the way, I love Diamond Stickles.  I just got my first bottle yesterday and didn't realize how amazing it is.  Yesterday I did a project with all blue and the worked perfectly picking up the blue and today I used the Diamond Stickles with orange and it looks like I put orange glitter on it.  I really don't think I need to use any other color!  Anyway just wanted to share.
