Sympathy Card Challenge

Good Morning! Hope your weekend was lovely. Sharon here from Mee Mee's Creations to host the challenge this week. I asked my wonderful DT Sister's to create a Sympathy Card for this week's Cricut Challenge, and that is what I would love for each of you to do, too.

I'm not really good at making sympathy cards, but since we do all need them at times. and I'm never ready when I do, I thought this would be a good challenge for myself. I hope you plan to join us.

While you are here, check out the cards that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!! Please visit their blogs and leave them some bloggy love. Check out the rules for our challenges over there on the sidebar and then head to your crafty space and make a new Sympathy card. Please remember to use a Cricut cut on your card. So looking forward to seeing your cards!! Have an awesome day!! :)

Winner of the Let It Snow challenge


Well, we had some wonderful snowflake projects last week- all unique, just like real snowflakes!  So hard to choose, but I was completely carried away with the creative project from Cocoa's Mom, using a cricut snowflake covered with peanut butter and birdseed as a bird feeder outside on the bushes!   Now how fun is that?  That would have been such a cool project to do with my boys when they were little!  So Cocoa's Mom, you can email me at cricutcrazyscrapper at gmail dot com for your blinkie for the project of the week.  And of course my mind is always finding the funny because apparently I don't have enough other things to think about, so I'm going to share:  I posed this question to my kids-is it considered a home decor project if it is OUTSIDE?  My kids voted yes, saying it was part of the birds' home decor, lol!

And thanks to everyone who linked up a project for us to be inspired by!!!  Have a great weekend!

Winner for the All Time Favorite Cricut cut challenge!

Hello, everyone!

I am so sorry for getting this up a few days late. Time has just gotten away from me this week! Yikes!

Ok, I looked at all of the wonderful entries and once again had a hard time choosing. However, one project really jumped out at me. It was wonderfully executed, but most importantly it has Hello Kitty on it. How can you not love any project with that sweet little cat on it?

Well done, Stacey! Please email me ( for your blinkie!

Your All Time Favorite Cricut Cut Challenge

Hello, everyone!

This is Melanie Brown from Courtney Lane Designs and it is my turn to choose a fun Cricut challenge. I thought a good way to start off the new year would be to ask everyone to use their all time favorite Cricut cut! I thought it would be so easy to choose one great Cricut cut! Well, it really wasn't. I found this to be quite a challenge. In fact, there are so may great Cricut cuts that I couldn't pick just one. 

Since I have the nifty Cricut Explore, I decided to go outside and find something beautiful and makes me happy. I love flowers, I mean really love flowers! Daffodils and tulips rank really high on my list, so when I came across this cut I knew it was the one.

Check out what the rest of the team have made and get your creative juices flowing. Remember to play along you have to use your Cricut machine.
