I am SO glad you stopped by today. It's design team day for Cooking with Cricut, but we're doing something special! Instead of our regular design team post and challenge, all of the design team members are having a special"Surprise" blog hop to say THANKS to our wonderful leader, Melinda Beltran.
Not only do we want to thank Melin for being a wonderful leader, designer, and amazing person, we also want to celebrate Cooking with Cricut's 100th challenge!!!!
Melin started the Cooking with Cricut challenges in October 2010 to encourage crafters to use their Cricut machine and cartridges. She has given so many crafters a chance on her design teams. The teams have turned into a crafting community of women who truly care about and support each other and share their hearts and talent with each another and with their followers. I am so honored to be a part of this amazing group.
So, this is our surprise "Thank You" to our wonderful Melin! If you came from Michelle's blog, Michelle's Crafty Creations, you're in the right spot. If you just dropped to visit my blog, I encourage you to start at the beginning so you won't miss a thing.
I used the Elegant Edges cartridge to create the shape card (welded on the Gypsy) and mats for this card. The sentiment is from MS Elegant Cakes and the flower and leaf is from Flower Shoppe. The brown mat was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder along with yellow petals. The leaf was embossed with Musical Swirls. Finally, the ribbon is American Crafts.
I can't wait to get this card in the mail to personally thank Melin for all she has done for the crafting community and for me.
Thanks so much for stopping by and hopping with us. We all hope you'll join us and leave your own "Thank You" for Melin in the comment section at Cooking with Cricut.
