Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday challenge #65-Summer Sun

If you hare hopping over from Frosted Designs today to see the Mini Album Project, click here.

It's another Monday.
Hope everyone had a great weekend.
I had a great weekend- I got a new toy. 

I am happy to report, I finally made the jump and ordered a Cricut Imagine!!
I got it late on Friday, so was getting to know it over the weekend. 

I think it is going to be fun

The challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday is Summer Sun- create any project with a sun on it, be sure to use at least one Cricut cut. 
Nothing like fishing off the dock at the lake on a warm, sunny, summer day.
Of course, I just had to use my favorite cartridge for this challenge, Campin Critters. 
I also wanted to use my new toy on this project as well. So I printed the stripped background paper and the sun with the Imagine.
I hope you will stop over to FCCB and link up a project. I would love to see how you use a sun on your project.

Here's how I did it...

Card base is 5"x5" from Kraft card stock
Striped background paper printed and cut from Imagine More cartridge
Lake scene/layers cut at 4.75" from Campin' Critters, p. 64
Deer/layers cute at 2.5" from Campin' Critters, p.24
Sun printed and cut at 1.8" from Imagine More cartridge
Sentiment from Pink by Design Woodland Critters
Sentiment tag cut from Campin Critters
Ribbon and breads from my stash
Pop dots for the deer.
