Hello Crafty Friends,
Karen from Little Scrap Pieces is a dear blogging friend and she asked for some guest designers, so I jumped at the opportunity to share. THANK YOU Karen for having me as a guest again!
Originally, I was going to use one of those bizarre holidays in July...have you seen the site? In July there was a lollipop day, cowboy day, moon day, Beatrix Potter day, and an ice cream day. I had plans to research all the days and create something unique. Then I got sick last week (that is why I haven't visited regularly) and couldn't do very much.
Within the last day or two, I have finally started feeling better and all these ideas are flowing again. Yeah! I decided to skip all those "holidays" and use Nate's ABCs Cricut cartridge. I flipped thru the booklet and this elephant stomped out. I couldn't resist!
After sharing the final product with Karen, we decided the challenge this week would be... "Use an Animal".
This is Karen's special ribbon. It is wonderful!
