Last Minute Cricut Monthly Challenge



Banners are everywhere! We love their versatility and the way they can be customized for any occasion. For this challenge, we want you to create a banner with any theme you would like. You may use THIS POST as inspiration, or feel free to create something completely new. Project must be newly created for this challenge.

So this is my last minute submission for the challenge. I only have about 40 minutes left, so there won't be too much detail right now.
The project has to be newly created and have at least 3 Cricut Cuts.

Carts Used
MS All Occasions Cake Art - Banners
April Showers - Boots and Birdhouse
Heritage - Bicycle and Tree
Country Life - Letters and Laundry Line
Easter 2010 - Bunny and Eggs
Home Decor - Bird and Butterfly

K & Company - WB Gypsy Baby Paper
SEI - Chick a Dee

Prima Flowers
MS Leaf Punch
Ribbon from Stash
Doodlebug White Flock
Viva Decor Pearl Pen
Diamond Glaze

Cuttle Bug Dots Embossing Folder
Nestabilities Scalloped Oval

Flocked Bunny

The bike and tree are colored with Copics.
I added some fibers for the bike tassel. I used Flower Soft for the flowers in the basket, grass, and tree.

                         I enjoyed putting the banner together for the challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Just a quick note

Good Morning Everyone!
The digi stamps have all been emailed, so make sure you check your mailboxes!
So I was trying to dig out of my email this morning and I popped over to Karel's Birthday Bash to see what's going on there today. She has some great projects and her new design team is featuring amazing talent! I was happy to see Calie from the Cricut Board is one of her designers. Karel mentioned that she met Calie back during the Inchie, Twinchie, and Trinchie days. I was also part of those swaps, and I have barely scratched the surface of the endless amounts of little embellies I swapped. While I was reading Karel's blog, my ADD kicked in and somehow, I ended up clicking a side blinkie. That led me to this
Blog Hop
A Beatles Blog Hop!!! I just had to post the blinkie here because I am such a huge fan. I haven't gone through all the posts yet, but you know I will! The host for the hop made a sweet notebook featuring the Fab Four. If you are a fan, you should check it out. They are also offering some great candy!
I can finally see my Christmas decorations on the front lawn, so I am off to try to get them up before the next round of storms!
                                                                      Happy Crafting!
