Oh Hello, Mister Butterfly card using Straight From the Nest Cricut cartridge

Hello, everyone!! This is Melanie and on this fine Wednesday(or Hello Thursday Eve ;-)) I have a very simple card I made using the Straight From the Nest cartridge and the Claire paper line from SEI.


I cut this butterfly for this A2 sized card at 4".


The ribbon (which I seriously love) and sentiment are also from the SEI Claire line.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure you check back in with us tomorrow to see Joy's amazing layout! Also, after Provo Craft's Hello Thursday announcement check out Joy's blog and my blog for tons of projects and lots of prizes. Seriously, we have totally out done our selves this time! I think we need a vacation ;-) Good thing last week was Diane's guest designing week. We could not have made it with out her!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Winner of the 3 Scrapbox Items (mat, ScrapMaBob and ribbon box) is Rachel!



Please email us at cricutchristmas@gmail.com with your address, Rachel! Congratulations!
