Birthday Hoots at Exploring Cricut

Good Morning Crafty Friends,
After making LOTS of Christmas cards this season, I decided I needed to start working on Birthday cards. I have one or two in my stock pile and that is not nearly enough to even get me through January. I am hoping there will be new challenges after the first of the year (since many have been on break for the holidays), so I can begin entering my projects.
Speaking of challenges...Exploring Cricut has a new challenge beginning this Monday and Die Cuttin' Diva begins Tuesday. Both are offering great prizes too!
 Here is my Exploring Cricut project...
I did use a bow maker to make the triple crinkle ribbon bow.
I used mini glue dots to bunch the ribbon. If interested, please click here to see a pictorial.
Inside message simply reads...

  19. Cute card; I've got to start making shape card. I know I have many carts that have them. Thanks for your comments on my new blog look, I've tweaked it a little more! But yes, I think I like the fresh new look! Thanks, G.

  20. You are so creative Georgiana.. Thanks for stopping by the other day. I appreciate it. hugs

  21. What a cute owl! I love the crinkly ribbon look. The triple bow is amazing. My bow maker never taught me neat tricks like that. We will be having words, my bow maker and me!

    Also, I'm with you, no more holiday cards now. I know some people are already starting in on them for next year. No way! Give me some birthday or generic ones for now. I can't even do winter ones.

  22. Cute little owl!! Love what you did with the ribbon :)


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I am looking forward to visiting you!
