Cuttlebug Spot D/T- 4th Of July~My Hero! ~With Mickey!! ~ Fantabulous Challenge #16






Happy Mon.!

Hi~ya All!

I hope everyone is doing well on this last Monday of the month. With this being the last Monday before our 4th of July holiday, our challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot is focusing on celebrating our holiday. With that our design team was to create a card to help us celebrate our independence. I normally would do a regular card, and since I haven't been feeling that great the last week, I was stumped as to what I wanted to do. I was looking at my Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge, and since I am such a big Disney fan I wanted to use Mickey too. Normally whenever I would take my vacation time it would always be for the week of the 4th, and I would do Disneyland to celebrate. Since my kids are all adults now, I seem to be the only one who's still crazy about Disneyland, and it's no fun to go by yourself. Anyways, enough about that, on to my card.

I created this card using DS, along with Stand & Salute, and Mickey & Friends Cricut cartridges. The stars and stripes cardstock is a free download from Gina K. designs, and I used my old standby CB folder Swiss Dots, and Christmas Stars which was my BD gift from my Best~est friend Donna M... It is hard to see but the stars were glittered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. There are about 4 layers of cuts on this card, you might be able to see it from the side view. All in all I thought it turned out pretty darn cute, for someone with no MOJO juices flowing. The navy blue color is a little off, due to me photographing in some bad light last night, but I wasn't feeling putting up my photo studio, had a terrible headache. I am feeling better today, so I hope you will understand. Be sure to visit The Cuttlebug Spot, and check out what my DT sisters has in store for you. There is also a great prize to be won for this weeks participation. I also entered this card in the Fantabulous Cricket Challenge-Challenge Me Monday. Hope everyone has a nice Safe and wonderful 4 of July! Catcha Soon!

I'm so sorry to hear you're not feeling well Lillie. Hope you get to feeling better soon! This is an awesome Mickey 4th of July card, very creative! My Disney enthusiast friends would LOVE it! If you're ever in Florida, we'll go to Disney but never on July 4th, we did it one year and NEVER again, it was SO crowded you couldn't move and it took more than 2 hours to get out of the parking lot BUT they did have some awesome parades and fireworks! Take good care of yourself and feel better!
