Everyone Needs a Friend Who is All Ears

Happy Tuesday! You made it through Monday, and just think: tomorrow you'll be over the hump to the weekend. 

There are some blogs that I visit often because the crafters, who I shall rename as, ARTISTS, are amazing! One of those blogs that I just LOVE is... 

The Cricut Bug

Gigi thinks outside the box, and always has something adorable posted to her blog. What I really like about her projects is that I can sort of try to mimic them in my crafting. And she always remembers to link to the products she uses, so if anyone wishes to purchase them, they can just click right on over! 

When I saw her Carrot Slider card, I knew I had to try to make one just like it.  

Here's my card. Remember, this is NOT my original idea. This card is what I tried to make after seeing Gigi's. Be sure to pop over and give her some comment love.

Slider card closed
Carrot Slider Card & Girl Bunny Rabbit both 
from SVG Cutting Files

Here comes the slider part popping out!

  • A lot of white gel pen added to edges
  • Everything inked around the edges with various colors
  • Peachy Keen Face: PK-490 Everyday Character Faces
  • Chalk added to cheeks
  • Bunny adhered to carrot with foam squares from the Royal Castle Shoppe

Isn't this adorable?!

I cut everything out exactly how I pulled the SVG files to my Silhouette software. I did not re-size anything.
Finished size:
6 1/2" wide x 9 1/4" tall

    1. When I saw the word Silhouette, I automatically assumed that you meant the file was from the Silhouette store; but happily that is not the case. Hope to give this one a try too!!! I guess I will be visiting the SVG Cutting Files store!
