The card I want to show you today is using some new paper, an older Cricut cartridge, some new ric rak ribbon I got for Christmas, and a brand new Cardz TV Stamp set that will be available for pre-order in the store soon.
So it's not the traditional Valentine card, but it's cute!
I was looking through all the awesome and fun challenges that are listed at Feline Playful (a GREAT challenge index site) and one challenge in particular jumped out at me and made me immediately think of the Crocs Rule cartridge and the Croc with the umbrella. That's what inspired this card.
The challenge I'm referring to is at Make My Monday - C6 - Literary Inspiration (Persuasion) Be inspired by the cover, the book, or both. Make sure you mention in your post how you were inspired by this challenge. (Mon)
