Bitten by the Bug Star Challenge

Every week I look at the BBTB challenges and think how neat they are. But being a new Cricut owner, I don't yet have a library of cartridges so I haven't been able to participate in any of the challenges. This week the challenge is to use the star on the George cartridge. I don't happen to have the George cartridge but there is a star on my Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. So I decided what the heck....I'll use it instead.

So here's my card that I created using the star on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge instead of the George cartridge......


When Carol (ScrapMomOf2) posted her card on her blog, she said she cut two stars and two shadows. OMG, it was like a light bulb came on over my head....I had to immediately try cutting a star and a shadow. I was so excited that I had learned something new about the Cricut that I got hubby into my craft room so I could show him. So please take note of the shadows around my stars....I am really proud of them!!


Luck, love and laughter,



Judy
