June 23rd Weekly Challenge Entry

I've got to say I am loving doing Circle challenges.  Before the Circle, I would go weeks without playing with my Cricut.  The challenges make me want to go in there and CREATE!!  I really have so much fun and I've really stretched my Cricut wings, so to speak.

This week's challenge was based on a sketch.  I don't know if I can post the sketch, but here is my take on it.  I hope you enjoy it.  My sweet hubby did.

I hope all the dad's out there had a great day!

Talk to you soon!

May Circle Challenge Imaginisce

I sprayed the torso with Green Maya Mist to give it a patined look.  I cut a small hole in the bottom and glued a wooden birdhouse stand to the bottom for height.  I used Go Scooter Go and Mushroom Fancy Imaginisce paper for the 48 little roses.  LOVED the colors.  I used a flower from Forever Young, which coincidentally was the cart that served as my inspiration for this project.

I then used the crown from Birthday Cakes, welded it to a rectangle from George and made 48 tiles for the skirt.  I ran the base trough my sticker maker, put the top on it and dipped each tile in chunky glitter to as sparkle! (As if it needed more! LOL!)

Finally, I cut a rectangle from George with a little scalloped border welded to both of the long sides.  I used a stamp from, who else but Imaginisce, and stamped in white pigment ink.  When they dried, I put little orangy rhinestones in the center of the on the stamped images.

Oh yeah and guess who made the gorgeous rhinestones I used?  You got it, Imaginisce!!  Aren't they awesome?  LOVE them!!

Here are a couple more pics!  Thanks for looking!!
