Celebrating Leap Day Card

Hello friends!  Happy Leap Day!   At Bitten By The Bug 2 this week we are celebrating this once every four years event with a Leaping challenge.  My sweet Design Team sister, L.B., has challenged us to create projects featuring something that is leaping.  The Design Team did an amazing job interpreting this challenge - you have to go by the Bitten By The Bug 2 blog and check out their projects!

I will be the first to admit that my card is a bit unusual.  I was working on last week's margarita card when I envisioned the drinks dancing.  The leaping alcoholic beverages are certainly having fun celebrating Leap Day.

I used three cartridges in Cricut Design Space to create this card:  Mixed Drinks, Shall We Dance, and St. Patrick's Day.  I used the slice feature to remove the heads and bodies from the dancing figures and welded the drinks to their limbs.  I like to think that the drinks are having an amazing time.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope that you might decide to join in us in this weeks Leap Day Challenge.  Just link your project in at Bitten By the Bug 2.
