Birthday Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #69 - Summer Fun

Hello all you wonderful crafters in blog land.  I am so excited for all the wonderful new products that were unveiled at CTMH convention this past week.  The most important one to me was the new Cricut Artbooking Collection.  Be sure to scroll down to see more information about the new Cricut Cartridge as well as some of the other additions to our new Idea book; which are available to order on August 1. 

It has been very hot in Southern CA; which is not the norm for June weather.  I hope it cools off soon.  I hope everyone is taking time to craft and to enjoy time with your families.  I know summer is a very busy time of the year; especially for mothers of school age children.  Maybe you can teach your children some kind of crafting this summer; which will keep them busy and give them a creative outlet. 
It's time for another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge 69 - Summer Fun.   Our sponsors this week are Delicious Doodles and QKR Stampede.  Both of these companies offer fabulous Digi stamps.  Be sure to check them out and order a Digi to create something beautiful today for yourself or a loved one.  Don't forget to look at all of the DT creations as they are always very inspiring to me. 
I know playing is what most people probably think of for summer fun; but I actually saw this Delicious Doodles Digi stamp and pictured summer fun.  It is always fun to sit and watch the butterflies lighting on the flowers.  I am always in awe of their beauty and serenity.  They do start out as a caterpillar and then transform into a beautiful butterfly.  This gorgeous Digi is Delicious Doodles Daises and Butterflies.  I hope you love this image as much as I do.   I wanted something soft and feminine with this image and I think I accomplished that here.
