HIMCR #134 - Something For/About A Loved One

HIMCR Challenge #134
Something For/About A Loved One

Template Dreams
Template Dreams - $5 Gift Card

My Project:

Hello!!! How is everyone's Saturday going? I am hoping to have a very productive one :) But this week over at HIMCR we have a challenge that might take you away from being productive outside the craft room!  We want you to create a card or project for or about someone you love.  The DT had the opportunity to choose from some of the Template Dreams kits for this challenge and I just had to work with the "Nuts For You" kit! SO CUTE!!! The squirrel is so stinkin' adorable and the papers and embellishments are to die for!  So this is the card I came up with.  I am not good at, nor have patience for, "fussy cutting", so I kept it to a minimum with this card.  I did my best around the flowers and popped them up on some foam tape, but the squirrel, yeah, she got to stay in a straight edge square :)  I decided to cut the "nuts about you" stencil from "Just Because" Cards on my Cricut, and popped that up on some foam tape as well.  I think it turned out pretty cute and I am thinking I will give this one to my husband for Valentine's Day, along with a jar of some type of nut.  He would like that :)  Anyway, I hope you are able to join us for this challenge and be sure to check out the DT's projects - they are always amazing!!!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
