Getting Cricky Pre-Hop Week

Good Morning Bloggie Friends!!

Can you believe that  it's already Monday?!? Where oh where does the weekend go so fast! Oh well, I'm looking forward to next weekend because it is a 3-day weekend. You just gotta LOVE those!

I'm back today to share with you my project for the Getting Cricky Pre-Hop Week. My DT sisters and I have challenged ourselve to use ONLY one Cricut Cartridge or SVG cut to showcase for the week along WITH  any K. Andrew Design stamp set.  The cartridge that I am featuring this week is the Smiley Cards cartridge. This is such a fun cartridge that has so many wonderful cuts and best of all, they work GREAT with K. Andrew Design stamps!!!

My preview yesterday featured the card feature on this cartridge. My project today features one of the cuts minus the face because I wanted to use some of my Peach Keen faces. You've waited long enough, so here is my project for today:



It is such an awesome card in person. As you can see I used the cloud cut from this cartridge. I used the Layer 2 feature to get the grey base for each cloud and then made the white layers slightly smaller. I used the Happy Lashes Peachy Keen set for those adorable faces and then I used some stickles to add the "silver lining". My sentiment, which was the inspiration for this card is from the Positive Thoughts set.

I was so pleased with how this card turned out. It turned out so much better than I originally envisioned. But isn't that usually how things work with crafting! :)

Lynda,
I don't know what the original faces looked like on the clouds, but the ones you used are perfect. This card is great.
