Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #85

FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE #85 

Hi Friends. Welcome to all my new friends. We had a great Christmas banner hop this weekend. The children at the Pediatric Specialty Facility in PA will be ecstatic when they receive all those great works.

I'm super excited because today is my first Fabtabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design Team post! YAY! The DT was asked to make a project with a book on it somehow.

I decided it would be a nice time to get ahead on some Christmas gifts, so I made my daughter's teacher a cute lil mini-note set.


This super cute lil digi is free at Operation Write Home. They do a great service collecting handmade cards and sending them to overseas troops for them to use to connect with family members states side.


This is the inside. I hand stamped each letter with my Studio G mini-alphabet stamps. I cut the cute mailbox from Doodlecharms at 1". I stitched the mailbox with my gel roll pen. I think it make a really cute set.

Hop over to Fabtabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and link up your super project with a book on it!!!!






MADE ESPECIALLY 4 YOU DESIGN TEAM LINK-UP #2


Today is also link-up #2 over at Made Especially 4 You . The DT was asked to make a card using this sketch...


So here is my take...




The papers are from a Cricut paper birthday pack and some standard purple cardstock. The ribbon is some awesome 3 Girl Jam . The buttons and twin are standard off the shelf brand. The stamp is one I got at Big Lots. I stamped it in Studio G purple ink.  

I made this card for my BFF since Junior High School. Her birthday is this week. I think she will like it. I was pretty pleased with the way it came together.

So you can hop on over to Made Especially 4 You and link up your awesome take on this sketch. Winners will also be announced (over there ) today for last week's link up winner.

This week's link-up is sponsored by Paper Piecings by Nikki . She's offering a paper piecing pattern that can also be a digi.



I will be posting this evening after 5 pm EST the winner of my blog candy from the Christmas Banner Hop. So if you didn't get a chance to hop and get registered...then go do so...I won't close the drawing until 5 pm EST today.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I did not reach my goal of 125 followers by yesterday at 6 pm, so there's still lots to be had. Jump on over ***Click Here for my 125 Follower Giveaway**** and get signed up. I'm getting closer and closer. Thanks a million for stopping by.

Be Blessed & Be a Blessing, Beckie
