Challenge Card, Vinyl Work and Announcement!

I have been so busy all week that I don't think I've posted something in a few days.  So I'm sure everybody knows, but if not; Michaels is having a clearance on cricut cartridges for $9.99.  Not all of them are clearance so you'd have to check your local Michaels.  I have 3 in Delaware and my state is pretty small so I can get to all 3 stores within 45 minutes (one is 20 mins north, the second is 45 mins south and the other is about 10 mins away).  I managed to pick up Paper Doll Dress Up, Sweethearts, Tinkerbell and Pagoda.   

Mojo Monday is a challenge blog with a sketch every Monday.  I'm so late posting this but wanted to share my card.  I wanted to get a jump on my Valentine cards so I thought this was a perfect opportunity.  Enjoy!

Pattern Paper-K & Company KP Valentine
Solid Paper-Recollections
Stamps-Craft Smart (both the sentiments and flower stamp were from Michaels and are $1, they are selling a bunch of them).  The hearts on the red cardstock was used from a Fiskars stamp set and it doesn't give me a name.
Ink-Ranger Tim Holtz Fired Brick & Worn Lipstick (both are distress inks).  Color Box Frost White.
Pens/Markers-Marvy Gel Excel in White.  Momento Dual Markers in Tuxedo Black, Rose Bud, Angel Pink, London Fog.  Sakura Glaze in Red and Clear (sorry, they don't have exact names for those two).  Sakura Gelly Roll in Clear Star.
Brads-from a RAK I did a few weeks ago (I love RAKs, anybody interested in doing one with me let me know)

The red paper with the white hearts was just a plain piece of red cardstock but I used the Frost White and a stamp from the Fiskars set to give it a little something.  I used the white gel pen and clear star to give it a little more shape.

I love my cricut.  I forget sometimes how versatile the machine really is.  My dad owns a catering business and needed my help (another reason why I haven't been on in a few days).  Never realized I'd be helping my dad with things for his business with my cricut.

 I used white vinyl and the lettering is from Songbird welded together by my gypsy.  These spoons take a beating and they have held together so nicely, I haven't had to make new ones yet and it's going on about 4 months now.

For the coffee pots.....wording was from Songbird again welded together by my gypsy.  The shapes are from Once Upon A Princess.  These were not holding up so well so I laminated them with my laminator.  The hot water actually has to be done again as you can see in the picture it was losing it's stickyness to the pot.

I also wanted to announce that I have been selected for my first design team.  GAB Challenges is a new challenge blog with a new challenge every Saturday.  Right now until the 12th, blog candy is being given away so stop over to the blog and meet the rest of the ladies.

Happy Sunday and I hope everyone enjoys their week.
