Our BBTB2 hostess this week is our talented miss Shelly. She asked the design team to design with an elephant. I hope you've come to visit after you've enjoyed all of the cards from the design team. We hope that we can inspire you on all levels to create using Cricut cuts. We love creating with the Cricut cartridges.
My card honors a sweet little elephant from Celebrate With Flourish. I cut her from gray paper, and added a pink hat with a pink button. The sentiment "a best friend is always here" is complimented by the inside sentiment that says "and here I am". Please notice that lovely embossing folder that features some cutaways in the design. A few weeks ago I was looking at some cards on a Pinterest bulletin board and I saw a gaspingly beautiful card that featured this embossing folder. There was no mention of the folder, however. I emailed the blog owner and she happily told me the folder is from the line of Marianne's Designables and she bought it from Cuddly Buddly. I went to that site instantly only to find that although there were many pretty embossing folders, the folder ROMANTIC was not offered. I hit the world wide web, I dove headfirst into every shop online that carried her designs only to find this particular folder had been discontinued. I can't imagine why. Between the net surfing, telephones and my friend Pat, she found a shop that had two "left" and she and I are now the proud owners of this embossing delight. I would be embarrassed to tell you what we paid.
Please join in on our challenge. Just remember our simple rules, make it a Cricut cut, mention our name on your blog, and I hope by now the bloggy world has gotten rid of that horrid word verification. I am so disappointed when I try to comment on a challenge and I encounter that WV.
Have a wonderful week, my friends.
