Hello my crafty friends, Happy New Year!!! Sorry I haven't did a post in so long. I took time off to do the holidays with my family. It was such a wonderful and fun holiday. I hope you all made wonderful memories with your families too. Can you believe we are in a new year?!! Me either! lol I'm looking forward to a better year for hubby-so my fingers and toes are crossed and my prayers go up constantly for him.
Since it is the first Monday of the month, it is time for a new challenge for BBTB2 for the New Year and time for me to get back into the swing of things. Melanie is our sweet and talented host this week and she chose for use to use our favorite Cricut cut. Talk about a challenge!!! There are just way to many fabulous Cricut cuts and I couldn't choose. So I went with just using a cartridge, as I don't have a favorite cut or favorite cart because I love them all. So just before Christmas I got the CTMH Artfully Sent cartridge and it is a NBUS for me so I decided to use that one. I have to say that the handbook to this cart had me quite confused at first. So I went over to Pinterest and did a little search, watch a few video's and was ready to start making a card. So this card is a Pinterest inspired card. Nothing fancy about this card, just a plain jane one. I cut a card under the "sentiment" second of the handbook out of pattern paper, then I backed my "cut outs" with black and red papers. Using my Cuttlebug, I cut out the photo corners in red and black, laying them so that the red made a shadow. I added 3 sequins to the front and that was it. Put my inside mats in and used the positive camera cut on the inside of my card. I didn't put in a sentiment yet because I'm not sure what I am going to use. There you go, an easy peasy 7 x 5 done pretty fast. So come on in and join us on this challenge and lets see what is your favorite die cut. Our rules are simple and you will find them on the side bar over at BBTB2. My design team sisters have more inspiration for you, so check them out too at BBTB2.
