Give a Hoot!

Hello Everyone!   I just wanted to share some cards I made with my new Give a Hoot Cricut cartridge!   The images are on this cartridge are just too stinkin' cute!   I knew right away that I wanted to use my DCWV green stack with these images - especially with the card above.   Love that little bird background paper!

I used the same papers on this card and the sentiment is from SU.   So I'm having fun - right?   I'm cutting, gluing and assembling little critters - and then I got to thinking that these little critters needed some dimension.   So I broke out the chalks and my markers and my white gel pen and did this....

I'm sure I'm not the first one to think of doing that, but whatever ---- better late than never, right?   All I did was add decorative chalk around the edges of the images (I seal it with good old fashioned cheap hairspray), and then I added some accents with my white gel pen.   It adds something, don't ya think?   Oh, and on this card I used K&Co. background papers. 

Well, that's all I have to share today.   I have a nice stack of critters on my desk that need to be attached to cards, so as soon as I do that I'll have more to share.   I hope you're all having a great day!   God bless!
