Episode 25: Hello Kitty Dino Card & Giveaway!

Before I get to my project the Paper Playtime Challenge theme this week is to make a project that is Black, Silver and White ONLY.  The sponsor is a SU! Independent Demonstrator and she is giving a really pretty SU! stamp set to the winner of the week.  So make sure you head on over there to participate.

So this card that I made is designed after the Hello Kitty airplane card I made last week.  You can see it HERE.  You can also see a picture of it in the video.  I wanted to challenge myself by making a boy card out of the very girly Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge.  Enjoy!



I'm also celebrating that I hit the 400 follower mark last weekend.  YAY!!!  I'm almost half way to 500 too.  Goody Goody.  :D  Thanks so much for all of you who have followed my blog and left me comments.  I LOVE comments.  As a way to say THANK YOU I am giving away the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge.  It's one of my new faves.  :)  It's a cartridge that can be used all year round.


Since this giveaway is happening because of you, the followers, you do need to be a follower to win.  You also need to leave a comment on this post (1 only please, any others will not be counted).  Please also leave a way for me to contact you.  This giveaway will close on Wednesday, Jan 12th, by 10pm MST.  Winner will be announced on Thursday the 13th.

Hello Kitty Greeting Cartridge

When I saw the challenge this week for the hello kitty plane, my first thought was how to exchange that kitty for a more boyish one. Now I know exactly what I need to do. Thanks for providing the great inspiration.
