Welcome to day 2 of the fabulous Cricut Card Fairies birthday blog hop! This is my 2nd post for the blog hop, and if you are returning to get in on the extra blog candy - welcome back!

I am continuing with the birthday theme and again using the HELLO KITTY GREETINGS cartridge.

This card was made with the image on page 39 and cut at 3 1/2".
Papers are from K & company, Papertrey Ink
Stamp is from Verve Stamps
I used Crystal Lacquer pens to give the balloons their shine.
The top and bottom piece are the 2 halves of a nestie label die cut.

I am still having cricut issues causing problems with cut sizes and I am not happy with the piecing of this kitty but it was getting no better with my 3rd attempt so I apologize for kitty's sloppy look :(

Now ~ you want some candy?? I have candy!! ~ You could win this HELLO KITTY cartridge, or the FOREVER YOUNG cartridge... or both!! See my post from day 1 of the blog hop (below) for details on how to win and for more information on the Cricut Card Fairies.

The next stop on the hop is Gina's blog , thanks for hopping along!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for my 3rd post - thanks!

Brenda we are our own worst critics. I don't see anything wrong and my eye was drawn to the shiny balloons! Great job!

Diana said...

I think those balloons are so cool! I'm going to try that idea!

Glad I'm one of your followers!

If your piecings are sloppy, mine must be downright trashy. The card if great.

Cindy said...

I'm with KathyJo, if you think this is sloppy I don't want you to see mine! But, we always see the flaws in our own work. I think this card looks amazing!

You know I would not have thought that this was sloppy at all... we are always hardest on our own works!
