Guest Blogger and a Challenge

Today we have a Guest Blogger, Kristal Andrew from GettingCricky.com.  She is going to show us how she used Cricut Search to help her create a card for her "sweet and spicy" challenge theme.  If you would like to join in the challenge, there is still time to enter a project that you created.  Just click here.

I love using Cricut Search, and when I was looking for a little elephant, I typed in elephant to find this adorable one on Sugar and Spice lite cartridge!
I created this easy card for my Simply Sunday Challenge. Every Sunday I have a challenge in which my readers can play along and win a cricut cartridge! I decided to give away the matching cartridge: Sugar & Spice to the winner! My challenges run for TWO weeks, even though a new challenge is posted each week.
I hope you will hop over to my blog GETTING CRICKY and join us!
Now join me for a quick tutorial on how to make this sweet and simple card!
Ingredients for this Card:
Polka Dot Mat: 5.75x5.75 (Penny Lane)
Paisely Flower Mat: 5.25x5.25 (Paper Studio)
Sugar & Spice Cricut Lite Cartridge (Provocraft-Walmart)
Cut Elephant at 4", Cut Scallop tag at 2.25"
Textured Cardstock: Brown, Pink
Smooth Cardstock: White
Ink: Vintage Photo (Tim Holtz Distress: Ranger Industries)
Pen: White Gel (Marvy), Brown Stampin' Up Marker
CHALLENGE....so the challenge is to create any project that is a little sweet and spicy--how you interpret this is up to you! It can be any project (treat box, card, layout, tag, etc) using any materials. I would LOVE to see a cricut cut used, but I'm not mandating it. I want everyone to be able to participate.
THANK you to each of you for visiting me today and allowing me to share a bit of my day with you. I feel BLESSED to have you here with me. I hope your day is full of wonder, blessings, and love today.
