A Throwback Challenge

Hi everyone--- happy Friday!  What a week... so glad it's over and the weekend is here.

Today I did my first Throwback Challenge for My Creative Time.  We could chose any of the older cartridges we wanted to use.

Here's the card I made....

I really like how this card came out... simple but pretty (imo).  I used Walk In The Garden for the cover using the card feature, cut at 4.5 inches.  I had never used the card feature on this cartridge so I thought it was a good time to try it out.  The purple patterned paper is from Chatterbox (still using that up ;) ).  The "Get Well" is from Lyrical Letters cut at 1.5 inches.  I also inked the edge using ColorBox Wisteria cat eye.

Emma made her card using Hello Kitty Greetings... after seeing her card I just had to make a Halloween card from that cartridge too.  This is just basic but I wanted to post it up as well.  Love this little pumpkin....

Thanks to Gaby & Celeste's advice about the Crop-A-Dile I went ahead and got the Big Bite Crop-A-Dile using the 50% off coupon for Michael's  (only $21. after taxes, not bad at all!!!!).  I went today after work and picked it up.  Can't wait to try it out this weekend.  Thanks girls!!!  :)

Thanks for taking a look.  I hope everyone has a great weekend!  :)
