This is card I made today for a challenge at the Cricut message board. The person hosting it is Kathy, better know as Alaska Cricut. This challenge is open to all members and we just show off whatever we make. They start posting at 7PM EST.
 This paper is another oldie from My Mind's Eye Asparagus Collection. (I have so much paper I will never use it all) and the base for the card is from American Crafts which I really use their cardstock a lot). I like how well the Cricut cuts it and is locally available. The ribbon is from my stash, the little paisley tag is from some package I bought...I am thinking, maybe K&Co. I did not use to be careful trying to take notice of the brands and some packages were just put together in a storage box.  Lately, I have been  trying  to be more organized and selective. The sentiment is from a pack of clear stamps I got at Hobby Lobby from the Stampabilities brand. I used my glue gun for the first time to glue on a card, I glued the bow, Yay!!!! I used the cheater method first (my cheater method consists of attaching an double sided adhesive strip to the whole ribbon but just a bit of ribbon on the back, and for this I normally use Scrapbook Adhesives double sided tape). I inked the edges with a Powder Puffs ink I purchased last year at a scrapbook store in Hershey, PA.
The card is a 5 X 5 inches square card and believe it or not I used the Gypsy for a cupcake from Sweet Treats and cut the top off and inverted it to make the half circle. I do not know why I did it like that but I did. Go Figure! LOL
and again, Thanks so much for taking some time to visit me.
