A Birthday Card For Kalisha

Hey guys! Happy Friday! I hope you are having a great day! The weekend is here! Whoo hoo! I don't think we have anything planned in my household, but as long as I can squeeze in scrappin', I'll be as happy as can be! Today, I have a card to share with you. I created a card similar to this one earlier in the week for a challenge on the Gypsy Chat section of the Cricut Community Message Board. Well, my Mom shared it that blog posting with one of her good friends, Kathy, and Kathy loved the card. So she ordered this card from me to give to her daughter for her upcoming October birthday. So I used the same Gypsy file I had created, but I did use some different papers. Also, I tried out some different Stickles glitter glue. I used the 'Distress Stickles' on the pumpkin and sentiment inside. Let me tell ya, these Stickles give some awesome texture. I think I have found yet another favorite. I used the following Cricut cartridges with my Gypsy for this one: Storybook and Gypsy Wanderings. Of course, as always I pulled out my fave Helmar Adhesives for this one: Helmar 450 Quick Dry and Helmar Zap Dots. I also brought in a little bit of bling and some ribbon. I hope Kalisha will like this.
 Can you see the texture on those Distress Stickles? I wish we had feel-a-vision or something...LOL. It is kinda rough feeling, but so cool!
 Popped up my pumpkin using the Helmar Zap Dots.

Enjoy your weekend! Happy Scrappin'!

Thanks girls! :)

Joy...thanks for the comment on my blog look. I love to change things up. No, I did not design them. I bought this blog set. I think it was called 'fright night' from a site called Scrapmatters. They have little blog kits. I love them. I also am fond of Sweet Shoppe Designs. They are reasonably priced and I love that you can alter them to fit you. After you purchase them, they send you the download link and then you can edit the tags, header, etc. in Photoshop. :)
