Hi Crafty Friends! Are you ready for the next Cricut Cardz Challenge? I hope so, because it starts now!

Challenge #120: “Attitude of Gratitude!” is the theme this week. Make a card for Thanksgiving using any cartridge(s) and colors you’d like.

For my card, I made a shape card using the sweet little squirrel from the Give A Hoot cartridge. I think she tuned out darling.

She is just the sweetest!

To embellishment the card, I sponged the darker brown pieces with brown inks, embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and popped them up on pop-dots. Lastly I gave her a twine bow and an acorn with a handwritten sentiment on it.

I love making shape cards with my Gypsy and Cricut. If you have never made one, be sure to give it a try. They are so fun and always a hit!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please join us at Cardz Tv for this fun Thanksgiving challenge!

Happy November Crafty Friends! Can you believe the holiday season is upon us? I can’t! Although I do love making holiday cards! The card I’m sharing with you today is my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #95. The theme this week is, “We’re So Thankful”! Make a card for Thanksgiving using the card feature from any cartridge(s) you’d like and using any colors you’d like.

I used Smiley Cards for my card base, Everyday Paper Dolls and Paper Doll dress Up for the leaves and pumpkin.


Thank you so much checking out my card and I hope you play along with us at Cricut Cardz Challenge!

Hi! How is everyone? I’m doing great! I can’t believe October is coming to a close. It feels like it went by so fast! The cold and rainy weather is definitely here. But it’s perfect crafting weather! So today I have for you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #48! This weeks challenge is to make a card for Thanksgiving using the card feature. You can use any cartridge and colors you like. Super easy and fun! I hope you join us this week.

I decided to make a Thanksgiving Dinner invitation using the Doodlecharms cartridge and paper from DCWV Indian Summer Fall Stack. (Which wasn’t a hard choice since out of all the carts I own this is the only cart with the card feature. Lol.) I used my new Gypsy to design this card so I was able to hide some of the cut lines on the leaves. This is a flat postcard style card that measures 4.25 x 5.50. First I inked the card base, printed wording and the leaves with distress inks in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. Then I attached the printed wording to my invite. Next I crumpled the leaves, attached them to my card base and dusted perfect pearls in perfect pearl and gold onto them. The wording was typed on my computer and printed using French Script MT font at 22 point. To finish the card I used two brown eyelets at the bottom.

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year maybe this will inspire your invitations or perhaps it will inspire you to make a Fall card. I hope you like my invitation. Have a wonderful week and Happy Halloween!!!
