It is almost the 4th of July- that means half the year is almost over- where does the time go.
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday challenge is all about celebrating this patriotic holiday. The challenge is perfect this week, use Red, White, and Blue on your project.
I know you all can do that... so I hope I see lots of projects this week.
Here is what I did. The little girl is from Lettering Delights Weather girl set.
She is so cute and looks like she is standing on the sidewalk ready for the 4th of July parade to come by.
When I make cards I usually make at least two at a time, I figure while I am cutting why not cut a few more to have on hand. So you will see a second version below-only difference is the ribbon really.
I had the scrap of blue ribbon with the liberty saying, but did not have enough for the second card, so pulled out the red dotted ribbon. The red ruffle is crepe paper ruffle ribbon I had picked up at a scrap event early in the year.
The inside of the card is a sentiment I have on a plaque hanging in my Disney decorated office. It was perfect for this card.
