With appreciation: made with Cake Basics

Hello, everyone!!

Today's card should look a bit familiar if you follow mine and Joy's other blog Everyday Cricut. With the new Cake Basics card we can actually mimic our logo! How cool is that!

This cartridge is one of those 'staple' cartridges like Accent Essentials, Don Juan, or George. I really hope it goes into a wide release because it has a lot of really great shapes one it!


Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don't forget my huge drawing(Just Because Cards, Preserves, Elmo's party, Destinations, Serenade AND You pick one PRE-ORDER of the new cartridges(announced today but *excludes Cake Basics*) from Hallmark Scrapbook) on Thursday! You can enter in the drawing by posting on THIS post and signing up as a follower.

Also, I am have posted a sweet little box over at the Tuesday Treats blog.


Click here to check it out.

Have a wonderful day!!
