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


If you are joining me from Erica's blog at
http://www.mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com

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.


Sweet Wishes, Sharon
