Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #61

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather is finally nice in MN so I was able to get outside and pull a few early weeds from my flower gardens. I love this time of year when everything is new and growing. It means my flowers will be blooming soon and we will have some color in the yard again.

As with every  Monday, It is time for another Fantabulous Cricut Challenge. This week the DT was challenged with the theme of Blue Skies; make a project with the color blue and a cloud shape.

I used a cloud shape from Once Upon a Princess. This cart is great for tag shapes to use for sentiments.  
This is also the first cut with the new E2- yes, it finally came and I have been getting it synced up so I can begin using it full time. The Just a Note cart has the cutest designs on it. 
I actually used the bunny with umbrella cut, cut the umbrella top off and added the balloon instead.
I hope you will find some time to create a project for this theme and link it up over at Fantabulous Cricut. I can't wait to see what you create.

Here's How I did it....
Standard A2 card size
Paper from my stash
Bunny/layers cut 3.5" from Just a Note, p 36; cut off umbrella top
Balloon cut at 3.5" from Just A Note, p 58
Sentiment cloud cut 1.5" from Once Upon a Princess
Martha Stewart Border punch
Sentiment from Pink by Design Spring has Sprung stamp set
Creative Memories Doodle Templates for dot/star border
Brads and doodles with my gel pen 
Chalk for cut edges

Hi Barb,
Your card is so adorable! I really love that bunny! Do you know if "Just a Note" is available for sale by itself or is it only available for the E2? I'd love to get that cart. There are so many cute things on it. Very versatile! I really love the colors you used too! How do you like your E2? I have the Expression and Imagine and debating if I need ;) the E2. I think I do. What do you think? Shoot me an email or leave me a comment if you get a chance Hun.
