Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Thank You Card

Before we get to today's post, I would like to announce my winner of the Fantabulous Harvest Blessings Cricut Crawl.  It is Suzanne.  She posted this:

Love the beautiful place cards and napkins rings. Also love to see you used your Imagine. Inspires me to use mine more.
 Congratulations, Suzanne.  If you will email me with your address, I will get your Michael's gift card to you.  Now on to our regular post

Mondays mean there's a new challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  Today's challenge is to create a card with the words Thank You on it.  

I chose the Wild Card Cricut cartridge to create this scalloped card cut at 5".  I inked around the edges with brown.  To create the opening,  I chose the Thank You from Paper Lace II and welded it in the center of the card.  I cut the Thank You out and popped it with adhesive foam dots.  I threaded ribbon through the opening on the scallops, then applied some bling from my stash.  This card was very easy to make.  Wild card has some fun cards on it.  I don't know why I don't use it more.

This is the inside of the card.  I hope you will swing by FCCB and enter our challenge this week.  The Design Team will have a lot of inspiration for you.

Challenges for this card: 
Corrosive Challenges - Give Thanks (ends 26th Nov)  
Creative Inspirations Paint - Thanks 
Outlawz challenge - "Thank you" Card using Fall Colours
Catch The Bug - Give thanks/Thanksgiving
 My Sheri Crafts  -  Be Thankful

Thank you for visiting with us this week.  I know we're all gearing up for Thanksgiving and quite busy so your visits are especially meaningful to us.  God Bless You!!!!  Peggy


  1. It's really beautiful Peggy! I love how you used the ribbon. It's so great to see so many wonderful projects today. I had one of those days in the craft room where nothing... and I mean nothing... turned out. Not a good week for a bad day. Hee! Hee! I feel better now that I am seeing such pretty things. Love how it turned out!

  2. This is so pretty, Peggy! I just love the way you wove the ribbon around the card - and the unique window is just fabulous with the word art! Great card!!

  3. Beautiful card Peggy! I need to use this cartridge more too. I love how you popped in a window. Soo pretty with the ribbon laced around the edges. Beautiful job!
