I Love Roo, A Challenge And My First Giveaway!!!
So my friend Paula has Wacky Wednesday challenges every week and since this is her #23 challenge (one of my lucky numbers) I decided to enter. The theme is green, pink and brown which means you have to encorporate these colors into your creation. If you get picked (randomly) you can win a new Cricut Disney cartridge. To view the info on the challenge visit http://morethanfavors.blogspot.com/ and make something and enter!
I decided to make a Valentines Day card using my Cricut. I used the kangaroo from my new Birthday Bash cartridge (which I have out to make Hunter a birthday card), the writing is from Plantin Schoolbook and the shaped background is from Live Simply. I have never used any of these cartridges yet so it made me happy to get them all out and use them. (And I got inspired to make more cuts as I looked through the booklets)
Recipe for Card:
Brown Core'dinations Cardstock
Pink scrap cardstock
Green scrap cardstock
Green Core'dinations sparkly cardstock
Pink Stickles which I painted on the heart balloon
Martha Stewart bakers twine (which Paula actually bought for me because I couldnt find it)
If you would like the dimensions of each cut, please leave me a message and I will get them to you. I chose to say I Love (heart) Roo because I thought it was original and cute.
So this is my submission for her challenge, I hope that I win! The cartridge she is giving away would be perfect to scrapbook our trip to Disneyland this past March. (our first time there!)
Anyways I also am doing my first giveaway! I only have 31 followers (who I love to pieces) and would like to get to 100! (I know I can do it!) So spread the word... If you are one of my followers when I get to 100 you are going to be put in a drawing to win a Sizzix Sidekick! This is a die cutting and embossing machine (you do have to buy folders for it unless I find some by the time I reach 100 followers) So have your friends become my friends and leave a message on this post that you are a follower. I will randomly choose a winner (random.org) when I reach 100. For an extra bonus, if you enter Paula More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday Challenge (ends on Feb. 1st) please leave a comment on this post and you will receive 5 more entries into the Sizzix giveaway!
Hope you like my card! Send all your friends to follow me because we could all use more friends right?
