Today over at My Cricut Craftroom is Card Creating Sunday. 

I am spending a week in Washington D.C. with my daughters 
& sister and knew that I wouldn't have time to make any 
Thanksgiving cards.  So, I made a few ahead of time.  I 
really hope you like my Thank You Thanksgiving card.

For this card I used Christmas Cheer for the card base. 
You can find it on page 127.  I cut it at 5 1/2 inches.
The Turkey of course is from one of my favorite 
cartridges Create a Critter and can be found on page 70.
He was cut at 4 1/2 inches. I did chalk him to give 
him more depth. The marquee can be found on the 
Storybook cartridge on page 66.  I cut it at 2 1/4 &
2 inches.  I bought the stamp set at Joann's last year 
and can't remember what the brand they were. The 
ribbon is from the dollar spools at Michael's.

Now that you have seen my cards for today please head
on over to My Cricut Craftroom to take a look at what my
other Design Team sisters have created for today.

I hope you have a great day and please come 
back soon for more fun crafts.

Sweet Wishes, Sharon

Welcome to JME Creations Design Team Day.  
For today we were asked to make any type
of a Thank You project. I choose to make a 
treat box because who doesn't love a little 
Thank You treat.  

For this box I used my Gyspy and the 
Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge and 
Create A Critter for the pumpkin. I added 
the box and then stretched it out to fit on 
1/2 of a 12 X 12 mat.  Now I can cut out 2 at 
a time.  I then added the pumpkin to 2 sides 
of the box and welded them to the box. You 
can find great Youtube videos on welding 
with the Gyspy. That is how I learned to 
use my Gyspy.

I thought the top looked a little to plain 
so, I cut out the pumpkin in a bigger 
size and stamped the Thank You on it.  
I also wrapped a 1 inch strip of orange 
paper around to keep the top closed.

I hope you liked my Thank You treat box for todays
challenge.  If you would like to see more Thank You
projects from my Design Team sisters please go to:
I know they have come up with some fantastic 
projects for today.

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's November 
100 Cartridge Blog Hop Day 1.

If you are joining me from Erica's blog at

then you are in the right place.

If you happened across my blog and would like to 
play along in our fun hop, you can go to
My Cricut Craft Room at
and start at the beginning.
There are many amazing and talented ladies in 
todays hop. This is a two day hop so be sure to 
come back tomorrow to see the second half of
the blog line up.  The idea of this blog hop is to 
show you how to use 100+ cartridges. 

My first card I decided to make very simple.
I used Stretch Your Imagination and Storybook.
The squares are cut at 1 1/2 X 1 1/2 inches.  All
the background paper came from 2009 DCWV
Spring Pack.  I cut the turkey at 4 1/2 inches.
I bought some sentiment stamps from Erica
not to long ago and I am in Love with them.
The stamps are from Pink By Design.  This 
one is called Simply Everything.  

For my second card I used Doodlecharms, Christmas 
Cheer & Paper Doll Dress Up.  I have always loved 
Doodlecharms!!  But, because it is one of the first 
cartridges Cricut made it doesn't have very many
 layer options.  To make the turkey I cut it out 2 
times. And then 1 more with the blackout option.
 I then hand cut out the turkey legs.  The "lettuce"
is the grass from Paper Doll Dress Up. And to 
make the card I welded two tags from Christmas 
Cheer on my Gyspy.  This sentiment comes from 
the Simply Everything set also.

I pop dotted the turkey leg and the turkey to give
it some depth.  I them added some extra color to 
the inside for a little pop.

I hope you enjoyed my Thanksgiving cards
for todays blog hop. Now please head on 
over to my DT sister Melissa for another 
wonderful project.
