FCCB challenge 73 - one smart cookie

Confession 1: I'm a Cricut newbie. Please be gentle!! I'm still trying to figure out all of the layers... I love this little gingerbread guy, and I thought I'd cut him out quick while my five year old was engrossed in a project.

A) her attention span is too short and B) I messed up but just went with it anyway.

Confession 2: I am a fudger. Yes, I am not a perfectionist crafter. I try to make my mistakes work for me rather than throwing them out. Sometimes this doesn't work in my favor...


So, end result:

Entered in the fccb challenge: piece of cake.


















Card recipe:
Just because cards cartridge
Papers: DCWV, random scraps
Maraschino twine from the Twinery, EK Success Edge punch

Thanks for letting me play along!

  5. Jen, I think this card is a hoot. You did a great job. My poor Cricut hardly gets any attention I'm ashamed to say. I give you credit for getting anything made with it. Have a good day.
