Episode 117: Western Wedding Shower Card

Happy Monday crafters! This card was made for my cousins wedding shower.  It's based off of his wedding announcement.  In their picture they are standing in front of a barn and it has him and her with a plus sign in between them then an equal sign and a rustic heart.  So I tried to replicate the barn door w/ the heart hanging from it.  Details of how I made it in the video.

Also, I haven't heard from a couple of the winners for my giveaways last week.  So double check to see if you were a winner.  It's in the post below.

Don Juan Cricut Cartridge - Heart

Insanity Baseball & Giveaway

Hi Crafters!  I was able to get two projects completed so I have one today and another one on Friday. YAY!  :)  Today's card was made for my sister.  She needed a thank you card for her daughters softball coach.  Their colors are red & black and their team name is Insanity.  Thought the cut was perfect for it.  Found out it is!  The tribal band look is on their team posters.  Had no idea.  lol  :)

The cut came from the Silhouette store and can be found HERE.

Something funny about today's giveaway.  I bought it because I love the design of the stamps and the dies that go w/ it.  A few weeks later I bought it again because I love the design of the stamps and the dies that go w/ it.  I forgot that I had previously bought it.  If you saw my post last week, goldfish brain.  lol  So you benefit from my terrible memory.
Hero Art Antique Flowers & Butterflies Stamps & Dies

To be eligible to win leave one comment on this post.  I try to make my comment posting fun so for today tell me the strangest or the first job you've ever had.  To make it fair here is my strangest job - For my first paying job I was a clothing inspector.  I trimmed off extra string, made sure buttons were right, etc.  Yep, inspector #6.  lol  :)

You have until Saturday, July 21st, at 10pm MT to leave your comment and I'll announce the winner on Monday.
