Good morning everyone! This card is for the MAG challenge #46, which is to use the Sentimentals cartridge page 35. I cut the card base out of Kraft card stock at 5", the blue layer was also the card feature at 4.75" and then I cut one side off. The flower layer was the card feature at 4.5" and I cut one side off the cream piece was the card feature again cut at 3" and one side cut off. All the edges are inked and the flower is popped up. The ribbon is Stampin Up the paper basic grey. The sentiment and flower were punch outs in the paper pack.

I made this card for the Cricut Circle challenge, this is my first one since I just joined the Circle. The challenge is make something with a window, so here is my take on that. The base is 2 rectangles from George sized at 4.25 x 5.5 the circle is sized at 2.61 and all welded together in my gypsy. The scallop is from Mini monograms sized at 3.75 and then the circle welded into the center. The tree is from happy haunting at 4.5 the witch is 1.5". The grass is sized at 2.5 the moon is at 2". I cut the shadow of the witch 2 times and glued them together with a piece of black thread in between. Then glued the thread onto the front of the card then attached the front piece of the card. I cut the grass 2 times also and popped up the top layer. All the edges are inked. The paper is DCWV and K&company. The stamp is from Stampin Up.

I made this little box for my Husband and filled it with chocolate kisses. The box is from wrap it up at 9.25", the heart is from sweethearts and was sized to fit in the square of one side, then I made another just a little bigger for the frame. The key and lock are cut at 1.75" the tag at 2". The paper is bo-bunny the ribbon from stampin up. I almost forgot I put a piece of acetate inside the box over the heart cutout for a window. I am entering this in the challenge at My Craft Spot, which is to use ribbon.

I made this card for my little granddaughter who is turning 2 on Friday. It is an A2 size card. The paper is Bo-bunny and Cosmo Cricket. The hippo was cut at 3" the balloon at 2.5" I can't remember what size the 2 was. The hooray was cut at 3". The inside sentiment was cut at 4". I added glossy accents to the balloon and used twine for the bows and string. I made a little skirt out of tulle and glued it down. The little black parts for the hippo's face were way to small so I used googlie eyes and a marker. Everything is popped up. I'm entering this in the challenge at CTO which is you must use a balloon.

Wow this was a really hard challenge for me for some reason. So I hope you like what I came up with. This is for MAG challenge #44 page 49 of the Wild Card cartridge. I cut this at 5.5" with the little frame from K&Company paper. I stamped the spider web on the inside and hand cut the monster from the paper and popped him up on pop dots. I put glossy accents on his cape and put on a jiggle eye. I added twine and a button and stickles around the frame. On the inside I hand cut out the happy halloween out of the paper and glued it down. The EEEK and bat are a Martha Stewart punch. I also put glossy accents on the bat, and popped him up.
MAG is having a Design Team call again, it's hard to believe that our time is almost up it went so fast. So if you are interested in being on a Design Team now is your chance.

I haven't posted much lately and I am sorry, this marathon training is taking it out of me. If I'm not running I'm thinking about and worrying about running. It will all be over soon the marathon is Oct. 1. I have been so worried that I won't be able to do it, but last Friday I ran 20 miles. I was slow but I did it and yes I was wiped out the rest of the day.
