 What a week! My family got home from a FABULOUS vacation on Friday, but the entire way home we took turns (sorry for the TMI) throwing up!  I am convinced that we got food poisoning and it was BRUTAL!!!  So trying to recover from that horrific end to our wonderful trip, I needed to get my project done for Craftin' Desert Divas and FCCB!  I decided to combine the challenges because they are both related, and given my state of exhaustion I figured I'd be okay doing this.  I always try to have one project per DT I'm on, but I just couldn't do it this week - forgive me!  I even put together a video for you to see how it all came together, but you might be able to tell in my voice that I wasn't all there :) Anyway, I used Create-A-Critter 2, Elegant Edges, and Mini Monograms for this card.  All my papers come from Doodlebug Designs "Home for the Holidays" 6x6 paper pack.  Please check out my video for all the other details of how I put this together.  I hope that you will join us over at CDD and FCCB for the challenges going on and for your chance for some fabulous prizes!  I am going to link this up over at Little Scrap Pieces and An Inky Situation.
 Thanks for checkin' in!!!
