Card a Day Challenge

So my Secret Sister Megan, over on the Cricut Message Board and I decided to challenge each other to a card a day. However, of course life got in the way for both of us so this challenge has extended into more than the month that we intended for it to take, however, we are making great progess and having a blast doing them. Here are a few I've done for the challenge:

Happy Birthday

I used the MCPT to color the candle. The candle stamp is one of the $1.00 Studio G stamps found at M's. The border punch is a MS punch.

The turkey feathers and happy thanksgiving were cut on the cricut using a .cut file from Diane (aka Capadia) has on her blog. I had already made the card base using ribbon and didn't want to make a new card with the cut file so I kept the base that I had and just added this to the top.

Christmas/Holiday Cards

Poinsetta was made from a cut file from TaraMason over on the cricut MB. This card was a total scraplift from the one she posted over on cricut. Instead of the gold center I used red stickles and inked the edges in gold.

This poinsetta was also on the cut file from TaraMason (her cut file had both the small and large poinsetta). I ran the green paper through the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and then added some "bling".

Non-Traditional Holiday colors
(yes Megan I cheated and used the one I had already made .... sorry non-traditional holiday colors are difficult for me).

Sorry the card is hard to see but the flash was reflecting on the silver paper. Used the cricut to cut the black pink and silver squares. Then stamped snowflakes on the silver squares (sorry don't know who made that stamp).

The picture below shows the true colors of the card.

Fourth of July

Another MCPT on the bear stamp. The bear is a Great Impressions Stamp. The "happy fourth" came from a Stampendous stamp set. The stars were all cut on the Cricut at different sizes. Some were then pop dotted on the card to add dimmension.

Last card for today is a

Halloween Card

This card I welded a spider web to a square and added the spider. Then I used MS glitter and google eyes on the spider.

Well, I guess that's all for now. Hope everyone had a great weekend. If I get some more time tonight I'll try to post a few other projects I worked on within the last week or so. If not check back later this week. Take care!


  1. Yay for our card challenge!! I LOVE the cards!! I think my favorite would be the black and white poinsetta.
