Enjoy everyday card made using B is for Boy Cricut lite cartridge

Hello, friends!! Today I have a card I made using the B is for Boy Cricut Lite cartridge. Whose kid did not have one of these little tykes cars? I was so excited to see this image when I first got this cartridge. What a great image to scrapbook your little one driving this little car around the house in. I also thought it was great for baby cards, birthday cards for little ones, or even just because cards. it is a really great image!




it was cut out at 3 1/4". I used Core'dinations cardstock and Bo Bunny double dot patterned paper.



the stamp is from Papertrey Ink.



Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you are all having a great week and staying cool. This stupid heat is already starting to get to me!! It is times like this that I wish I lived in Alaska or something. Living in the South in the summer is really tough!

Have a wonderful day!!

Hey there, I thought I had gotten all the cartridges from the Cricut lite series that I wanted.....that was until I saw your card!!! My 21 year old daughter had that car. She played with that so much! I know I can dig up some pictures. Cute cute cute!

Jennie said...

Adorable card! Love it!

Ms. Jen said...

I feel ya Melanie! It's in the upper 90's here all week and then the humidity, well might as well not even go outside! Weeks like this I wish I was back in Washington!

Cute card!

JenE said...

I hear ya Melanie! It's 95 & humid here today in NJ. Love your card...love the ripped green paper for the grass. Great stamp sentiment, too.

Kelly said...

OMG - my niece had one of those cars and my daughter would never get out of it! Even though I have two daughters, I might just have to get this cart for that design! I totally agree about the heat. Texas is not the place to be in the summer. I can hardly breathe sometimes! November can't come fast enough for me! Stay inside as much as possible! TFS

CARDS by SUSAN said...

That card almost makes me tear up! I think of all 3 of my boys riding up and down the driveway and sidewalk at our house riding in that very car! Oh, the memories!
Thanks for taking me dowm memory lane

Scrap Vamp said...

That card is adorable! Love the little car and all the stitching! I love that cart!

AndreaA said...

Great card!! Love this little cozy coupe!!
My boys didn't have this car. they must have not been out yet.

But the girl across the street gave me her boys when they outgrew it and they are graduated from collage now.
It has been in my back yard now for about 14 years and still is growing strong. 3 y/o DGS was just playing with it last weekend. They are durable for sure.

As for the heat my Sister went out to lunch at her work and she just called me to tell me to make sure I didn't go outside today. She said it was horrible.

Great card, I really like the little car rolling down the hill. It does bring back memories. Love the details. I can relate with you about the heat, livingg in the south with daily temps. of 100 or higher, and it's only the beginning of summer. :)

Cute card, your doodles & bows always come out nice. I have girls so we had the purple coup car.

jeffo 'n lisa said...

Ooh! This reminds me of my nephews when they were small and used to have one of these. How I miss those days.

mary said...

I agree with the HEAT issue. 12 continous days of 90-96 degrees. Heat index 101. Red zone (health alert) for air quality. I live in the Charlotte, NC area. It felt like I was burning my fingers on the steering wheel after the car was out for most of the day. AC can't keep up in car or house. Too HOT! I can't stand it!

pcrusberg said...

Melanie, that little car is just too cute! I think that every church school I've ever seen has one and the kids all adore it. Great card!

Sharon said...

I just love this card!! I got this cart today along with Sugar and Spice. I'm looking forward to creating with them. :)

Jennifer said...

Melanie,

I hear you on the heat! We just left San Diego, where the high was 80 (& we needed a light jacket at night-heaven!) to return to Scottsdale with 108* heat!!! Good excuse to stay inside with the ac cranked up and craft. ;)

I love your card!!! I like the whole cartridge B is for Boy, but that Little Tikes car caught my attention right away! Too cute!!!

Thanks for sharing & stay cool,

Jennifer

sucor said...

What a great card - perfect paper! Very versatile idea too.

JANLYNN said...

This cartridge is the top of my wish list. I have 2 grandsons and every images is just perfect for them.. I went by Walmart again this afternoon and those poor little empty pegs are just hanging there waiting for the Lite cartridges. So sad so sad.

Kelley-Lou-Who said...

Wooo You can come and stay with me!!! lol I live in Alaska and I love it! Make sure you bring your Gypsy so I can play with all these new carts before I decide which ones I want! lol

I love our little tyke card. that is sooooo cute. Another cart to add to my wish list.
We have had one day of summertime heat so if you want to send some to Eastern WA state, especially around the 4th of July it would be appreciated.

Julie said...

Love it as it reminds me of my dd cozy coup! That brings back good memories of fun times.

*kbcraftcorner* said...

So cute! That cut is a wonderful representation of childhood:)

jennydecuir said...

Melanie, this card brings back so many memories! My parents kept one of these cars on their back porch for all the honorary grandkids they had up until my daughter came along. She was the only grandchild my father lived to see, but he got lots of practice with great-nieces and great-nephews and family friends whose parents couldn't be grandparents. Thank you so much for sharing this.
