Well, I hope everybody noticed I took down my Christmas decorations on my blog today. Of course at home they'll be up 'til probably Valentine's Day. LOL (You think I'm kidding, right?) Jennifer Wuthrich posted a challenge on the Cricut message board to join her in doing a card a day in January so I'm gonna try. I felt so bad neglecting my crafting in Dec that I thought it would give me a push. We'll see... I made this thank you for my friend next door who has poodles. I used the border feature on the Cricut Paper pups cartridge and welded it in design studio to a rectangle from Plantin Schoolbook. I thought it would be fun to use one of the prefolded acetate cards from Hero arts that I got at my LSS. The striped matting and picot edged ribbon looked very "French" to me so I cut "merci" from Beyond Birthdays. I used my double scallop Martha Stewart border punch on the inside mat and then cuttled it using the Swiss dots folder and then added a solid mat with a little ribbon trim which left me just enough room to write on.
