Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #294 - Valentines

I'm very excited to let you know that I am now a member of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design Team. FCCB is a fun place. You have to have at least one Cricut cut image on your project.  I'm pleased that I will be using my Cricut Expression more now.  I don't have a lot of carts, but I intend to fully use what I have.  Be sure to pay the blog a visit, and if you have a Cricut of any type, join in the fun!  Here's my Valentine card:

I think this CAS card has a nice masculine look to it.  I'm not sure which man in my life will receive this one, my husband, son #1, son #2 or my grandson.  But no matter who gets this one, I have more to make - LOL!

Cricut Cartridge:  Close to My Heart Artbooking

  6. A BIG Congrats to you Sheila, you will be a great asset to the team at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design team! I love your card, it does have a masculine feel without being super masculine, well done! And well done on using the Artbooking die cut, the CTMH carts are some of my favorites!!! Hugs, Brenda

  7. Well done You on using your cricut to get these shapes & designs. I'm so proud of you (as I hang my head for myself!!!) I love the design. It's very 'sweet', yet still tailored enough for a tough guy. The black dots paper shows off the red so well. Hooray for you! TFS & Hugs
