CRICUT CIRCLE BLOG WEEKLY CHALLENGE

  

Hello my friends!

Thanks for your kind thoughts and for keeping me in your prayers.
I sincerely appreciate it. I will see my neuro-surgeon this Friday for the results. I will let you know.

***

I made today this card for the weekly challenge at the Cricut Circle Blog. These were the requirements:
"Weekly Challenge #6: Feathered Friends Challenge...
The birds are flying south for the winter and we’re heading inside to “feather” our own nests in preparation for the cooler months ahead. This challenge is in honor of the birds! Create a project of your choice using a minimum of 2 different Cricut Cuts. Your project must also include a bird of some kind and stitching (machine stitching, hand stitching, or both)."
This is my card
 The pine tree is from Camp Out cut at 4.5 inches tall.
  
The birds are from A Child's Year. The star from a mini punch I have in my supplies.

The tags/mats are also from A Child's Year and the sentiment from the Christmas Solutions cartridge.


I used my black ink cri-kits to write the sentiment. I then filled the inside with my silver glitter pen. The stitching was done with a paper piercer first and then faux stitched with a red pen.

This is the inside.

The designer patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye, the blue from one of the tags is from Martha Stewart and the red one from American Crafts.

It was very easy to make, perfect for an assembly line and to get your Christmas cards in a blink ;)

I have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT to make about the Action Wobbles we were working with. Yes, the same ones some of you guys will receive samples of :)......... but we can't tell much yet. Stay TUNED! because we are going to have lots of fun.

Love you All!
