Throwback Thursday - BUG Challenge

Hello and welcome to another Throwback Thursday Challenge for My Creative Time. For this Throwback Thursday Challenge we were to use a "bug" of any sort off of any older Cricut cartridge. There are TONS of possibilities so I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

I decided to make a bright and colorful friendship card.

This really pretty butterfly is from the Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge. The only drawback was that even cutting it at 3 1/2 inches it was still too small to add a cute little Peachy Keen face too (even the smallest ones were just too big). I made the shape of this card using my Gypsy and a pretty shape from the Lacy Labels Cricut Lite cartridge. All the paper is from a SEI paper pad. And thanks to a reminder from my sweet friend Cindy of Cindy's Scraptastic Designs I added twine around my card. I haven't done that in several months and I had forgotten how pretty it looked until I saw THIS darling card that she made. And of course, that BEAUTIFUL and perfect friendship sentiment is from Emma's Many Greetings stamp set. Isn't that sentiment PERFECT? I had totally forgot that it was even on this set. I'm so glad that I looked at the sentiments on there again, this is definitely a terrific year round - all occasion sort of stamp set. I LOVE it!

I hope you will join in the fun and since this is the last Throwback Thursday before Emma's next stamp release you will definitely want to join in the fun so you have a chance for the AWESOME prize.

I hope you will drop by Emma's blog if you haven't already to see what she and some of the other design team members have ready for you. Have a WONDERFUL day! Hugs- Glora
