Super Sweet

Happy cold day everyone. Seems most of us are either in the frigid cold or the snow In Minnesota we have the cold but sunny days, while many of the rest of you are getting socked with loads of snow. Boy, it is going to be a long winter. At least we can all be inside with a cup of  hot chocolate and scrapping!

I have to say I was so glad to use my Cricut again. Last week was a challenge trying to be creative with limited supplies. It really made me think outside the box. 

Today, I am posting a simple Sweet valentine's card that will be linked to a few challenges.

It is a basic card size using a cartridge I rarely use. Not sure why since there are so many cute cuts on it. The Hello Kitty Greetings cart had the perfect cupcake for this card. 
Below you will find how I did it. 

Be sure to hop over to the following blogs to check out and enter their challenges and see the fantastic work all the designers have posted.

Here's how I did it...
Bazzill paper for card base; 4.25" x 5.5"
Heart/green border pattern paper from Memory Keepers
All other paper from my scrap stash
Heart ribbon from Michael's
Martha Stewart border punch
Cupcake cut from Hello Kitty Greetings card at 1.75" on p. 4; I couldn't get the layers to all fit nicely so I ended up cutting the silhouette three times for the different colors.
Sentiment from My Pink Stamper Everyday Occasions stamp set
Brown chalk, pop-dots for cupcake and doodles with my white gel pen. 

Don't forget to check back tomorrow. I am posting my first guest designer card. Hope you will like it.
