Sympathy Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Guest DT for Twisted Tuesdays Blogspot.
Hi to all my fellow friends, bloggers and followers. It was very cold in Southern CA; breaking all the records.  We had a freeze warning several nights in a row.  The last few days have been in the upper 70's.  Can you believe that?  My mother flew in from MO and said it was colder here than when she left home.  It changed there quite rapidly and last I heard was only 17 degrees.  
I am honored to have been selected to be a Guest DT with Twisted Tueday's Challenges.  They have such wonderful challenges.  Be sure to check them out.  I was supposed to be a GDT in November; but my father in law passed away; so I had to change the date.  Check out all the wonderful creations by the DT.  

This week is Bingo.  I have used Color Blue, Sympathy and Twine.  You may choose any three down, across or diagonal.

I can't get the chart to work for the bingo correctly so I will try it another way.

Twine ---------------Thank You-----------------------Tearing

Sympathy ---------- Sparkle --------------------------Special Fold

Color Blue----------Brad------------------------------Congratulations
Twist - Let a machine help you with your creation this week.  Like a Cricut, Cuttlebug, Big Shot, etc.  If no machine; you can use a punch.
