Live the Sweet Life card made using the July stamp of the Month and the Indie Art cartridge.

Hello, friends!


Today's Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge requires us to make a project using an ice cream themed Cricut cut. I did a quick search on the Cricut Craft Room and came across this FABULOUS cut. How in the world had I missed this beauty? Anyway, it is on the Indie Art cartridge. Am I the only one who has completely forgot about this cartridge all together? This is why that search function on Cricut Craft Room is so great! It helps me find great cuts on older cartridges that I might have missed. 

For the sentiment, I used the July stamp of the month. Didn't I tell you guys that this stamp was worth it just for the sentiments alone!
