I am so diggin' the challenges! I think I am going to try and complete at least 2 challenges a week. It's nice to do the challenges, they give you a place to start. The nice people over at Cricut Cardz Challenge are hosting Challenge #58. The challenge is to make a SNOWMAN-USING ANY CRICUT CARTRIDGE AND ANY COLORS. So, I made the 3D Snowman from the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge I just got. Then I realized that it is the Cricut CARDZ Challenge. I think I better make a card. lol
I made the card using the Winter Frolic cartridge. I cut the sentiment at 2.5" and the Snowman at 3". I used some spray adhesive, glitter and some Stickles on the snowman. Added a ribbon and called it a day. :)
Below, I cut the 3D snowman at 8" (I used the fit to page button). He would make a cute table accent, but he doesn't like to stand up. lol I am going to see what I can do to make him stay upright. TFL

More challenges!! I found another challenge at http://morethanfavors.blogspot.com/ . The challenge is to make something from the Mini Monsters cartridge. Click HERE to enter. I really like this cartridge, so it's great to see some really cute ideas that are not just for Halloween.
I used the Mini Monster cartridge for the cauldron, Cricut Classic Font cartrige for the "LOVE" and a clear alphabet stamp set from Michaels for "Potion". I added some ribbon, rhinestone and embossing powder to complete.
Here is a recipe for an adult "Love Potion":
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Amaretto
1 oz Peach Schnapps
1 oz Cranberry Juice
1 oz Orange Juice
Pour ingredients into a shaker with ice, shake and serve on the rocks or with crushed ice. Add raspberries or cranberries as garnish.
The winner is... Cathryn67! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy all the goodies!
I accomplished more craft room organizing this weekend...so another box of goodies will be up for grabs next week. ;)
