Blogger Challenge, July 20, 2012 - Die Cutting For You.

Hey it's time for the Bloggers Challenge over at Splendiferous Creations Where list mom Lisa has given out the challenge to use Die Cuts on our projects.

 I missed last weeks challenge...things just got busy and I never got around to participating.  Not so this week.  When I read that the challenge was Die Cuts I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

My blogging buddy, Allison (Stampin When I Can) sent me this cute Die Cut earlier this year and I decided to give it a whirl and see what I could come up with using it.
Thanks Allison for the fun Die Cut.


It's Christmas in July! - I've gotten a head start now on holiday cards. 

Details: Card Stock:  Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla (SU) - Cherry (Amuse Studio).  Designer Papers:  Authentique Wonder Collection and Die Cuts With A View Trade Winds Matstack.
Die Cut: Sizzix Peace On Earth, Nestabilitie Circle and Lacy Circle Dies.
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Swiss Dots
Other: Gingham Ribbon (Source Unknown) Glitter from Art Institute
