Live with Purpose

Hey there!  Tomorrow I will post about the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Charlotte last weekend.  I had such a nice time!  But today is Monday so that means it is Bitten by the Bug 2 time!  This week's challenge cut was selected by the uber talented Melanie who chose the theme: "Summer Heat is for the Birds", use any Cricut Bird cut.  

I chose to use one of the fun owls on the new Artbooking cartridge - there are two fun owls on the cartridge - along with the stylish tree and fun background cut.  Yes, my entire card was made wht just one cartridge - Artbooking.

I cut the detailed background at 5 x 3.75 inches along with the tree frame.  I wanted to leave a color frame around my cuts.  I cut the owl at 1.25 inches and the tag at 3 x 1.5 inches.  The stamp I used is from teh new CTMH set, In the Moment.

If you have not already done so, do go by and check out the design team projects at BBTB2.  I saw such a variety of birds at the site this morning!

ou know that I am loving the Artbooking Cartridge - even more than I thought I would.  If you are still sitting on the fence about purchasing Artbooking, I am giving you another look at the cartridge set and the specials for which you will be qualified with your purchase through my on-line store.
