Well it has been too long......

...........but I really hope to be back and posting regularly again.
Some things have changed since I last posted mostly the
shut down of the Cricut message board.
You all know I have been an active member on the MB and a 
participant of the
Wednesday Bi-Weekly card sketch challenge
on the message board for many many years so it was quite a shock to think we may not be able to continue our little challenge.  It is so much more than a challenge to many of us, it is inspiration, learning and a great creative social atmosphere, so we were saddened 
that we may lose that creativity and chatting with our friends.
Well a fairly new member of the challenge stepped up to the plate 
for us and created us a brand new message board with all the features
and creative areas you can think of.  Plus it is constantly growing and being enhanced. 
So thanks to MsWipz we now have a new home.....
Please come and take a stroll around, it is so much more than just Cricuts and die cutting machine, no more worries about not using your Cricut or saying Silhouette Cameo.   
Plus there will soon be a blog associated with the MB.  

So to kick off this new message board (and yeah I know I am late in reporting this) we have a July Super Challenge going on.  It will last through August 111th so you still have plenty time to play along.

We are challenged to try many new things and get our brains going on
creating a card to some specific things. 
 I will share a few of them with you right now.
One of our challenges was to make a Super Hero card.

Here is mine.  I used some PNGs from Sassy Designs
using Superhero Sound effects. She is having a 13 year celebration sale till July 31st where most of your things are just 25 cents.  Be sure and go check out her sight.
So here is my card......
I love my Cricut Explore as I got to write the sentiment on the label and then cut it out.  The little guy and label are from NitWits Super Stuey collection.

Another of our challenges or ECs was to make a 
These were pretty simple to put together.  There are so many ideas and videos on Pinterest for this technique but here is the one I followed.
I made two samples using some Stampin Up stamps.
 and a second version since they are so quick and
easy to make.
This is just a small example of what we are learning and what we are challenged to do for the 

So come on over and check us out and hopefully be inspired to try a challenge or two.
