Hooray, You're Going on a VACA!

I just had to step back from the Birthday cards for a moment and do a fun little VACATION card for my sis who usually goes tripping in the Fall.  I have had some sweet little vacation/travel embellishments I have wanted to use so I decided to take a VACA myself from making birthday cards! I came up with a new sentiment poem just for the occasion.



Fun card huh! Haven't made a circle card for a while and It gave me an opportunity to use the 'center point' button on my cricut....just don't use that enough and it is a wonderful feature! What I used:
  • Cricut carts:  Wild card and Plantin Schoolbook
  • Paper: K & company (blue paper)
  • VersaMagic ink in Pumpkin spice
  • K & company embellishments
  • My own digi sentiment
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Celebrate the Occasion Ch#27 - Circle shape cards
  2. The Paper Variety Ch#48 - Travel/transportation theme
  3. My Sheri Crafts Ch#67 - Vacation
  4. Sisterhood of Crafters - Flower Power (use a flower)
  5. For Your Inspiration Ch#12 -Photo of Autumn orange trees and blue sky  (I took the orange and blue for my inspiration)
  6. CASE Study Ch#54 - Your own signature style 
  7. Crop Stop Ch#34 - Anything goes
Thanks so much for stopping by... I am really keeping you guys busy here!  Love all your wonderful comments, you brighten my life so very much! Hugs to you all.

Hi Cindy oh I'm so glad not to be the only one to hit the wrong button! If you pop back to Just for Fun you should see a little red cross by your name, click on that and you can then delete your entry.

Hope you have a black, white, silver and one other project to share with us XOXO Zoe
