Love is in the Air

Happy Monday, my crafty friends!

It's "Challenge Me Monday" over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog! Today's challenge is a "Neglected Cartridge" challenge. Use a cartridge that you have neglected to use in the last 6 months. Well, I don't know about you but I have several that I have not used as much as I thought or not at all! I chose to use 3Birds on Parade. I purchased this cartridge several months ago and had not used it once. This card also features the new stamp set from 40:31 Creations. Can I just tell you how much I love these stamps! They stamp beautifully and so crisp! Erin has several sets that are available for preorder so make sure you check them out. You can view them HERE.

Now, on to my card:
I just love this card! In fact, my  husband commented on how cut it came out and he rarely pays attention to what I make.
Here's is what I used to make this card:
Cricut Cartridges ~ Twinkle Toes for the card base and its layers, 3 Birds On Parade for the bird and its layers, Simply Charmed for the red heart box, Home Decor for the branch, and Create A Critter for the hearts on the branch. I had those left over from another project.
40:31 Creations Stamps ~ Love, I used 2 stamps from this set, one for the sentiment and one for my heart.
Cardstock ~ Recollections and Martha Steward
Googly Eye
White Gelly Roll Pen
Pop Dots, Glue Dots, and ATG

Now it's your turn. Go over to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and check out what all the other designers have to inspire you. Then dust off those neglected cartridges and join us in the challenge.

Happy Crafting!
