GCC1007 - Smile - First DT card submission

Whohoo!!! This is my very first submission as a full-time Design Team member for the Greeting Card Challenge on the Outlawz Challenge board. I'm so excited.

This weeks challenge is "Smiles". I actually really like how this turned out. I had an idea in my head and it went together perfectly and exactly like I wanted. I used my new Groovy Times Cricut cartridge which I have been eyeing forever. I finally found it for $9.99 so had to get it. I just love it. I'm sure you will see some additional cards using the images off this cartridge. For those of you who know me, know I'm really a hippie at heart. I think I'm a preppy hippie if that makes sense or exists. I was born a few years too late to be a real hippie so I'll just live in my own 70s world even though its 2013. I love peace signs, neon colors, go go boots, rainbows, flare jeans, big sleeves, hoop name it. Well anyway, on to the card and to show off how I wanted to use a smile. I not only used this super cute image, I also used my black and white polka dot paper. You see this on a lot of my projects when I can use it. : ) I popped up the smiley face image for dimension.

This month, the sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps. So come on over to the Greeting Card Challenge on the Outlawz board and play along with us.


Supplies: Neenah, SU daffodil, Bazzill orange, turquoise, black, The Paper Studio, Cricut, Groovy Times cartridge, Cuttlebug, The Paper Studio ef, Studio G stamp.

I saw this sign a few weeks ago at a sandwich shop near work. I had to take this picture and since I mentioned hippies above, it's too funny not to post. Apparently, Vermont has a large hippie population or used to. My coworker and girlfriend thought I was crazy for taking this picture.
