Hello Thursday! (Even if it IS Friday!)

Good morning and happy Friday to you! The weather here in Chicago has been unbelievable! It was in the low 80's yesterday, which is totally unheard of for this time of year! I am so enjoying breaking out the capri pants and not having to bundle Cortney up every morning!

 It is that time of the month when Provo Craft releases their new Cricut Cartridges.  I had the pleasure of working with Paper Dolls Teen Scene.  What a fun cartridge this is!  I decided to go with the summer theme and create a beach girl.  I gave her a bit of depth with Copic markers and pink chalk for her cheeks. Her  surf board was cut at 5" using the Life's A Beach cartridge.

I  created  the sand with vintage tissue paper that I had in my stash.  I wrapped it around the bottom of the card and added a bit of real sand to it.  Once again, my card is a bit "poofy", but I guess I like "poofy" cards! ; ) I added a little beach ball, sentiment, twine, and a seashell from the top of a stick pin. 
Be sure to check out the Cricut Blog to see the other fabulous cartridges and what the other designers have created! 
I will be hosting a giveaway this weekend, so be sure to pop on by for a visit!
Have a great day! : D

I played with this cart in CCR...but nothing compares to seeing your beautiful card! I know what you mean about puffy cards..so much fun..till you have to mail them out..but sometimes you just have to make them and pay the price!
