Merci shaped card made using the Folk Art Festival cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a shaped card from the Folk Art Festival cartridge. Now just so you all know, this cartridge can only be purchased from Michael's. To my knowledge Provo Craft will NOT be carrying this one for a while if ever. If you are really wanting this one and do not have a Michael's close by, I would see if there is some one on the cricut message board who would pick one up for you. Alternatively you could check out e-bay.

Cartridges that  have shaped cards are always a friend of mine! It just does not get easier, folks! You just add your stamped sentiment and it is ready to go!

I used the Avonlea paper pack and the burlap ribbon from Close To My Heart.
This stamp set is called Bonjour and is only $9.95!

Thanks so much for stopping by this week. I will be back on Sunday with the winner for this week's giveaway and the announcement of next week's giveaway! click here to check it out ==> Snow Folks cartridge giveaway!
