Cut It Up Challenge #5- Thank You!

Hi everyone!  It's time for another challenge over at Cut It Up!  The challenge is to make a Thank You card that includes a digital or stamped image and a die-cut.  Janis from Pause Dream Enjoy and Mark's Finest Papers are sponsoring this challenge and will be giving away a stamp set to the winner!  For my card I cut out the latte from the Love You a Latte cartridge and for the stamped image, I stamped a heart from the Whimsical Designs "With Love" stamp set.  I hope to see you play along at Cut It Up for this fun challenge!  Below, I also included a couple pictures of what I've been up to this week.

Challenges Entered:


Materials Used:
  • Love You a Latte Cricut Cartridge
  • CARDZ TV "Brew Ha Ha" Stamp Set (Sentiment) 
  • Whimsical Designs "With Love" Stamp Set (Heart)
  • Martha Stewart Doily Punch
  • Crinkle Ribbon
  • Buttons

Here is a picture of our front yard after Hurricane Sandy.  Luckily, the tree landed in our yard and not on our house!  The tree was 45 feet tall.  We also lost power for about 24 hours. :(

Here is a picture of my son and daughter on Halloween.  My son, Jason, was a zombie doctor (he was much scarier with his mask on!).  And my daughter, Brooke, was a zombie waitress.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!  :)
