Now if you come on this cruise and take my class I will do my very best to make sure that you leave being able to tie the best bow possible! I am totally serious! I am teaching two classes with Joy, but I will do a bow tying demo for any Cricut cruise traveler who is interested! It is going to be so great! Oh and I am bringing my mother, so you all get to meet her! She just cannot wait!

Ok, on to the card....

This card has no cricut, but I used my fantabulous cuttlebug!!! Well, and a new die I bought from Papertrey Ink. Seriously though, you could crank out tons of these using your cuttlebug and impress all who receive your Christmas cards! ALSO it is a super cheap card to make(no ribbon or other embellishments)! Now for those of you who have gypsies or Design Studio you can design something similar using a cricut shape. It is ridiculously easy to do. The only reason I did not do that is that there is a stamp set that matches the die. It was kind of a one two punch for me!


The paper is from Papertrey Ink.
I added a little bit more using my white signo uniball pen.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Let me know what you guys think about the cruise. If any of you are going to go please let me know! I can't wait to meet some of my blog followers as I love each and every one of you!!

Oh and Scrappy Mama, I bought way too much Judith Ripka from QVC! I got two rings and two pairs of earrings! I cannot believe I have spent so much before Christmas. I added a few of her pieces to my Christmas list as well....I am so addicted ;-) Thanks for helping me get a new addiction!!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Scrappy Chic said...

I wish I could go on the cruise. I'm super jealous of all those that get to go.....it's combining two of my favorite thing...cruising and CRICUT stuff. The card is cute!

ScrappyMama said...

Well, it was fun to have the chance to enable someone else...I'm usually the one being "enabled" !! Am so glad to hear that you found a new addiction & don't forget, they usually have Judith's jewelry as a TSV several times a year...just trying to be helpful ;) !! Congrats on getting to go on this cruise - it sounds like it'll be a blast!!

Beautiful card, I love how simple it is!!

I would LOVE to go on the cruise but I just had my baby boy in Sept so he'll still be brestfeedng then, so I can't be away from him (or my 2 yr old!) for that long - maybe next year!!

Simple and sweet. Everything is better with some cuttlebug on it. (I have to confess . I do my cuttlebugging with a Big Shot)

Wendy said...

How Awesome for you guys!!!!!! What an honor! Sooo wish I could afford to go!!!!!

missionofjoycandles said...

Nice card. I think I will need to look into this design. Looks like I could crank those out for all those people who ask at the last minute for me to make them cards.

Chris Wooten said...

Cute card. Can you pack me in your Luggage and let me stow away with you and Joy on the cruise. I can not afford that, my 3 grandbabies get all my money.
