A Gift For You

I made this for My Pink Stamper challenge.
Challenge: Make a Winter card, scrapbook page, or other craft item with your Cricut and share it here on the Inlinz link. Everyone who enters one project will be in the drawing to win my NEW Winter Punnies stamp set! This project needs to be started AFTER I post this. Please do not post something that you have made previously. That is why we call it a challenge. LOL! I will close this challenge on Wednesday at 7:59 AM and announce the winner shortly thereafter. Good luck everyone!!

This week was my birthday so I went shopping at Joann Fabrics today! Lots of fun, until I ran out of money...but I got some great things. I got Summer Vacation and Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridges. I also got some more Cricut Mats & DCWV-The Green Stack. The background paper from that paper stack. It has great colors and cute animals like Create A Critter Cartridge has. Enough about my shopping trip & here is the recipe.

A Gift For You
Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge
DCWV-The Green Stack Paper and scraps
Brown Ribbon
Brown Gel Pen
Star Dust-Stickles
Chestnut Roan-Color Box Ink (around trees)
Quick Stik- QuicKutz (helpful with all the little pieces)
Pop Dots

Tree Border - pg 44    cut 5.5" fit to length or 2"
          Cut off the 2 left trees for the girl to stand on the snow
          Color the tree trunks with the brown pen & ink the edges of the trees

Girl - pg 43      cut 2.5"
            There are a lot of little pieces so I used the Quick Stik. It has a stick clay type time so I can pick it up and place it where I want to.
             Some of the cuts had two colors in it. I didn't want to cut them out twice so I designed it on my Gypsy to see exactly where the paper needed to go on the mat.
              Glue the coat on before the face. I didn't & I had to peel mine up.

Phrase - A Gift For You  pg 43    cut 2"

I can't wait to make more cards with Winter Frolic. It will be great for Christmas Cards. It has lots of great winter cuts and phrases, even tags. Oh, by the way. I didn't win the Cricut Imagine with my cartridge. The last chance to win the imagine is 8/31. Check out for more details.

If you thought you might win something when you read the title of my post, well....when I reach 25 followers I will be giving away something. So just a few more to go. Oh, and I love getting comments on my posts. I look everyday just to see how many people have viewed or commented on my blog. Yes it makes me feel special. I love sharing my designs with you. Thank you for looking.
