Oh my...

Oh my...I have to admit I cursed a lot while I was working on this card.  UGH!  So I have been working with a friend to challenge ourselves on many levels--aside from just participating in challenges :)  She had shared a link with me about making some ribbon flowers-- well I decided to make my ribbon flower as the sun instead of a flower.  Along with that tutorial there was also a tutorial on making your own glue dots-- well I was NOT at all successful in creating the dots.  I was super excited and let them dry...I went to make my "flower" and it turned out okay...but when I went to take the glue dot off the paper ummmm it didn't come off at all.  I used parchment paper as the instructions stated but for me it didn't work.  The dot was great but the removal from the paper not so much. 

I created this card for a challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion.  The theme for their challenge is "New House."  I used a pre-made card for the card base from DCWV and the house is a cut from the Create-A-Critter cartridge. 

The Deets!
Cricut Cartridge Cut: Create-A-Critter
Paper: SU for solid, striped pre made card from DCWV
Ribbon: from my stash
Other: brad from M's, MS grass punch
