Would You Ever Guess Wednesday



Welcome back for another

My Cricut Craft Room
On WYEGW, we can use anything on the cricut cartridge EXCEPT the main image.  For my project today, I chose the A Child's Year Cartridge.  For the longest time I hesitated on buying this cartridge, since my kids all all grown up and I thought I had no need for this cart.  I kept see projects made on other blogs and the Cricut Messageboards using this cartridge.  So I finally decided to buy it!!
I picked the image on page 39, it is using the ICON feature using the shift key.  Here is the sneak peak!!
I cut the image at 3.5" in cream color cardstock.  I knew I wanted to cover it with stickles.  When I first tried painting on the stickles, I was not getting full coverage.  You could see alot of the cream color, so I decided to wipe off the stickles and add some color with chalk. 
Here is what the image looked like with just the chalk.
Pretty good, but I needed to add the sparkle, so I added Candy Cane and Green Stickles.  All the paper is from Close to My Heart "Elegant Bouquet" paper pack.  I have alot of the older CTMH paper packs, so now I am trying to use them.  I have so much paper, I kind of vowed not to buy anymore until I used up at least some of what I have.  We will see how long that will last...LOL!! 
Here is a picture of the finished card.

I inked the edges of all the paper with Distress Ink in Tea Dye.  I used the Swiss Dots and Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folders for the two mats.  I added some My Craft Spot Crinkle Ribbon in Scarlett Red.  I finished the card off with a tag from the coordiating sticker stack from CTMH and the sentiment is from Paper Trey Inks "Birthday Basics" Set.
Thanks for visiting and please make sure you check out the other amazing projects today over at
