Surprise 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

                Welcome everyone!  You should have come from Charlotte's Creations.  If you did not please start at Erica's blog, My Cricut Craft Room.

                 As a design team member I think I can speak for my team members and myself, we have had "ants in the pants" to present this hop to you! This is a very exciting time for Erica and we're all so very happy for her!

                  Now I'd like to share my "Best Wishes" and "Happiness" to Erica and her new hubby!




                This is my card for the newly weds.  I used the Sweethearts cartridge for the bride and groom # 29 & # 30/shadow.  For the inside sentiment I cut Best Wishes #57 in black, then again in the lilac vellum both cut 4.00-4.25. I used the hide/contour to hide the inserts and make the vellum solid for a stained glass effect.




                 This is my gift to the happy couple, my layout "Happiness".  I made the flower, with Erica's chosen color lilac, with vellum. It is made with varied sizes of hearts using the Sweethearts cartridge # 3/shadow.

To the happy couple

Best Wishes and all the Happiness in the World!




I just have to share that I won the

Where is the Cricut Buddy Contest!



This was my entry...actually Erica's entry won but I won the prize! Second place isn't always bad!
I can't compare my excitement with Erica's today but it's up there!
