Crafty Catz Challenge #419 ~ Anything Goes

Well here I am somewhat late but here with this weeks challenge for Crafty Catz.  The theme is 'Anything Goes'.  This week our fabulous leader Carol is the host and the twist she gave the DT was to make black & white cards.  Be sure to check out the blog as those talented ladies of the DT have really worked their magic and there are so many different cards, you're sure to be inspired.  This weeks sponsor is the wonderful

Prize is 3 digital images 

At the moment my crafting time is very limited but I did manage a quick play with the Cricut Explore Air 2 and I treated myself to a yearly subscription of Cricut Access so there are LOTS of cuts to play with (almost too many to choose from!) Anyway I found this nice squirley Christmas tree and cut it out of black cs but before adding it directly to the card front I used the Cricut to write the sentiment.  So there you have it a very quick and simple card, hope you like it.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Die Cuttin' Divas #371 ~ ATG
Crafty Gals Corner #166 ~ ATG

Crafty Catz Challenge #418 ~Anything Goes

Well hello, it's been a while since I last posted but I'm here to share my latest project with this weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz.  It's the turn of our fabulous Aunty Sue this week to host and our theme is 'Anything Goes' but if you would care to play along with Aunty Sue's optional twist this week it's 'Christmas in May' and we have an awesome sponsor this week too


prize...4 images of winners choice

The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with, I have used an image called Bug R Blocks.  I have recently acquired a Cricut Explore Air 2 and had a bit of a play.  Must say I am very impressed with it's capabilities, even after a very short play.  I have used it to cut the milk carton firstly in cs and then in the patterned paper.  I then took the image which comes as a block of 4 and after importing the image into the Cricut Design Space I printed it, the Cricut then scanned it and cut the blocks individually and perfectly, I certainly couldn't have done it so well by hand! lol I think I'm going to like this new machine!  Images are coloured using Chameleons and the box is closed with some ribbon.


This was such a fun project to make and I think there will be a few more of these made for the little gifts at Christmas.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Not Just Cards ~ May Challenge ~ ATG
The Paper Shelter #340 ~ Digi image
Fab'n' Funky #395 ~ Christmas
