Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone! I hope your week
is off to a great start! I've noticed several blog challenges
this week that are asking for something that has to do with
the 4th of July! Well you know what.... It's not a card I would
normally make! Just like a summer card or a travel type of card....
So for me these types of challenges are an actual Challenge! :o)
Which is a good thing and sometimes a bad thing.... Cause 9 X's
out of 10 I don't have that type of cartridge and I'm searching
to find something creative to make with what I do have... Luckily
that's been OK so far.... I have a lot of cartridges and can find
at least one image on each to make something up! :o)
Thank goodness I like to buy a lot of cartridges! hahaha
Anyway here is a card I made for my Brother N Law who's
birthday is on the 4th of July! :o)
Normally I don't make him a 4th of July Birthday card...
I just make him a masculine birthday card. But I felt I
needed to challenge myself and make something for
all these great challenges! :o) Of course I had to use
my new Cricut Lite Cartridge as well... I fell in love with
this cartridge when they showed it on the Hello Thursday! :o)
I had to show ya the pretty sparkly stuff! hahaha
OK this card can not be pretty if it's going to be
sent to my brother in law! :o) The idea behind my card is
when you go to watch the fireworks on the fourth...
Your usually sitting back and just watching the
pretty colors up in the sky.... And seeing this Croc
leaned up against the tree just made me think
of doing this on the 4th... He's looking up in the
sky looking at all the fabulous colors! :o)
And the added side view to show all the dimension I did...
