Create A Critter 2 Love Bug Card



Before I get going on Today's card, I wanted to share a picture with you....

I found this this darlin' on my front porch yesterday. I will unpack it and give it a spin today (with any luck). As soon as I take care of a few obligations I have, if there is any more energy left in my body, an Explor'n I will go! No doubt I will keep all of you posted!

Ok, lets talk about my Valentine card. It is made using the Create A Critter 2 cartridge, the new Ivy Lane paper, and the Buggy Love stamp set. Who doesn't love a cute little bug? Well, I hate real bugs, but cartoon stamp bugs are pretty fun.












This week's prize is the Create A Critter 2 cartridge! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 16th!

Your buggy card is so sweet. I have been wanting that create a critter cartridge for a while now. Love how you paired it with the pretty Ivy Lane paper.

Love your Lady Bug!! Love the colors. And what a coincidence, I was looking for some valentine ideas for a kids card, and BINGO you've read my mind. I knew you were good, but didn't know your a mind reader too!

Have fun exploring, I know you'll find the time, and no matter how tired, you'll get that second burst of energy once that box is opened.

Your card is sooooo cute! I love the polka dots.
I had to laugh when I looked at the printing on the box. It clearly states which way is up but it seems to have definitely been put on it's side. lol
Hope it works great and you have fun playing with your new toy! Cheers :)

This is so cute. I just got my first cricut machine (expression 2) and I am loving all the adorable ideas I am seeing. So many creative people out here. Wished I would have realized a new one was coming out when I bought mine, so will have to wait a while to upgrade. Hope you have tons of fun with yours.
