Little birdhouse card made with the *new* Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge

Hello, friends!!

Today I have a card I made using one of my favorites of the release...Cindy Loo! I really love this cartridge! I think it has lots of possibilities. It is not as girly as you might think either. I have a card that I made for tomorrow's post on Everyday Cricut that is VERY masculine. It just is a total must have cartridge....I think!



When I saw the images on this card I knew that this little Bavarian birdhouse would be cut by my cricut. Just something about it called to me. I cut this little birdhouse at 2". It is small, but not hard to assemble. I love when that happens!



I used a little pen work to add a little bit more.



The paper used is October Afternoon's 'Thrift Store'. This is totally my new favorite paper pack! The ribbon is SU! and the stamp is from Papertrey Ink(the set is called Inside Out Thank you...or something like that)



Thanks so much for stopping by!!

P.S. Joy is drawing her winners today for her huge giveaway. You should totally check it out!! Click here ==> Obsessed with Scrapbooking

Have a TERRIFIC Thursday!!
