MCT ABC Challenge!

Happy Fat Tuesday!  I have such a FUN card to share with you today!

I received my BRAND NEW My Creative Time products from Emma's latest release, and after I got over the surprise of having bought the same set twice (oopsie!) I was literally busting to try them out!

They are having an ABC challenge on their blog right now, so I decided to play along with the letter "C" because I REALLY wanted to use the new Hello, Chickie die!  I used the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch to get me started...




Alright, so, the letter "c" is for "chick".  It is also for the "Cricut Cartridge" that I used for my "curly cue" frame!  I used the Close to My Heart exclusive Artbooking Cartridge which is hands down one of my go-to cartridges.  I also used "Cardstock" for the parts of my "Card."  The "colors" are Pear, Gypsy, Honey, Sunset, White Daisy, and Black.


The sentiment is from another MCT set, More of My Favorite Sayings.  It is a "classic."  ;)

Don't you love the fun Mardi Gras Chickie?  I happened to catch sight of the bow die from the same set upside down, and thought it would make a lovely superhero mask!  Instead, I turned it into the perfect mask for Mardi Gras--and a fun way to coordinate the sentiment to the chick!  I thought it was rather "clever" myself, lol.  A few CTMH retired opaques round out my ABC's!  ;)  Since this one has pearls, it is also being linked up over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog for their pearly theme.  Guess that is another "c" then for challenge!


Thanks for popping in today to see the fun I whipped up!  Now I know my ABC's, next time won't you play with me?  See you soon!
