Good morning!!  I have some very exciting news for you this morning!  I am a very proud and honored new member of the Cricut Cardz Challenge Design Team!  Wooo-Hoooo!!

Mary, owner of Cricut Cardz Challenge, was one of the very first people I met in the blogging world a few years ago.  She has always been super sweet, honest, generous, incredibly talented, and oh such a great friend.  So I am very honored and very proud to be a part of her talented team now.  I have great respect for her and all she does!  

CCC's new challenge is up today! 
"For challenge # 39, make a card for "Back to School", using any cartridges or colors you'd like. Post your name and a link to your card in Mr Linky by midnight EST, Tuesday, August 31st. If you're chosen by as the winner, your name will be entered in the grand prize drawing for August! Good luck everyone!"
I encourage you to hope over to Cricut Cardz Challenge and check out the inspiration from the Design Team, see all the new Design Team Members, check out their blogs, and play along in this challenge.  You'll enjoy every minute of it!!

Here is my card I made this morning for this theme.

Card base Green from Value Pack (pre-scored for easy folding!)
Zebra page 47 cut @ 3 1/4" with Recollections paper
Butterfly page 30 cut @ 3/4" Real Dial Size
Cricut Cart:  GIVE A HOOT
Suns page 64: Yellow sun cut @ 1 3/4"; Orange sun cut @ 1 1/2"
Sentiment printed from computer with font "Catchup" @ 14 pt.
Background paper Recollections "Summer Flower" from Michael's (got it last night for 9 cents!)
Colorbox Black Ink for edging around background paper and sentiment

I hope everyone has a FAB Wednesday!  Don't forget to hop over to Cricut Cardz Challenge and join in the fun!!
