Merci Mushroom

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Hope your Wednesday is off to a good start.

I made this card last night, but did not have time to share since I watched a movie with my hubby. Well, I wish I would have been crafting instead because the movie was horrible and I can never get those 2 hours back.
 I like how the mushroom holes match the card base.
 I finally found some great adhesive (Extreme Micro Adhesive Squares by Glue Arts) that hold the pleated ribbon. I can tell this is going to be a new favorite.
Materials:
 red, white, and blue cardstock
checkered tissue paper (recycled from a student's gift)
Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge ~ card base (p. 31) cut at 4 1/4"
Create -a-Critter Cricut cartridge ~ mushroom (p. 32) cut at 2 1/4" and sentiment (p. 36) cut at 1/2"
red and blue crinkle ribbon (Thanks Karen @ Little Scrap Pieces)
red and white buttons

Challenges:



Summer Goals:
I have set some crafty goals this summer and I am pleased to say that I am working towards them. Here are a few goals: make shape cards (this should count as one), add stitching with the sewing machine, try some 3-D projects, get published, and hit 1000 followers. I am off to a good start, but much more to do still!

What are your crafty goals?

My 2nd blogoversary is coming soon. Goodies will be available!

Be sure to come back tomorrow. A new project for Creative Cutter Room will be posted.  

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

  4. Oh this is so adorable! I love the recycled tissue paper! Just great...okay, ready for my summer goals.

    1. Like you, I want to learn to make shaped cards.
    2. Concentrate more on layering my cards.
    3. Learn how to use the SCAL2 my girlfriend GAVE me about a year ago!
    4. Continue to work on my Copic Coloring skills.

    Gee, that is all. I do think that I am going to take the summer off from Design Teams and really work on getting better.

    Hugs,

  9. Super cute card. When my hubby ask me to watch a movie, I don't like. I bring my IPad and watch the u tube about cardmaking or read the blogs. He does not mind as long as I sit by him.

  10. That's why I never watch TV-it's so often just awful! Great card-love the shaped cards. I like you idea of setting some crafty goals-I guess I woud have to add trying some shaped cards to my list. I think I also would put using ALL of my carts and learning how to take better photographs for my blog on my list (that is the thing I struggle with the most). Always love to stop by your blog :)
