In the Cricut Message Board a challenge runs every night. It is called the 1 hour challenge because you have an hour to complete a project of your choice. Today, I made a card in 35 minutes and I want it for this challenge. I am posting it here for any followers who are not aware of the challenge. The challenge is run by Kathy, better known as Alaskaricut on the MB and you can find the challenge on the "cricut chat" forum. I believe the time to post starts at 7PM.

Thank You card
All papers are from K&Co., ribbon is from American Crafts, I do not remember where the Thank You clear stamps is-sorry-, ink is from Staz-on, and card base MS. I used a distressed look for the card and I torn the paper for the grass leaving enough white to simulate snow. As you can see the tree is fully in bloom. This is my way to envision the future, LOL. We have had so much snow it will take all summer for all to start melting. I wanted to translate that on my card.
I certainly hope I am totally wrong for the sake of my sanity.
The card is 5" x 5-1/2". Almost a square card :p

NOTE: I do not know how to keep the Blog Candy Post on the top so if any of you knows, please give some help. Otherwise, you can look on the right side bar for the Cookbook label and if you want to be added to the giveaway, please sign as a follower and leave me a comment. 
That is all about, just these two requirements.
Thanks so much!


  1. I think you captured the season just right! It's hard to believe you completed that in just 35 minutes, it is so pretty and so embellished.

    I've only gotten the opportunity to get into the challenge once, but it's so much fun. I've gotta do it again soon! Great card!

    I'll be seeing you!

  2. That is a gorgeous card! I've always loved K&Co, now I think I'm starting to crave it lol. I love the dimension you added and the tearing. Well done you : ).

  3. pretty, pretty card!!! I need to enter challenges more so I would play with my E did a great job on this card.

  4. This is gorgeous! Love the little birds, the whole design is fabulous! Love it! Can't believe it only took 35mins!

  5. i really love how the torn paper looks like snow! or is that me reading something into this? because we finally got a true taste of winter this week causing me longer days at work... 11 hours!!! so have had little time to view and comment. only today getting to do some crafting in between loads of laundry!

    i know i can keep something at the top of my blog (as i did with the Haiti relief) if you go to edit your post, in the bottom left hand corner there is a "post options" drop down display, click on it, you will see to the right options of "automatic" or "set date and time" you can adjust the date to the date in the future that you want that post to stay on top. this way, any posts you do make will be before the future date and therefore will post beneath the future dated post. i don't think i haVe helped you...


Have a fun day!!!
