For those out there that don’t know, Michael’s is having an amazing sale on their Cricut products, especially cartridges. A number of them are being sold for $9.99! Unfortunately, Florence hasn’t had a Michael’s for about 6 years now. I decided to see if my manager at Jo-Ann would price match, and I thank the stars that she said yes! So, I was able to get Create a Critter, Sweet Treats, and Winter Woodland.
Today’s project is from Create a Critter, which is definitely my new favorite. I’m in love with it! If you’re new to all things Cricut (like me!), I think this is the perfect cart to learn with because the layering is incredibly easy.
Here’s everything I used to make the card:

And because I have a tendency to break into random dance routines while crafting (or just because!) here’s my card making soundtrack:
Phoenix – 1901
Glee Cast – Singing in the Rain/Umbrella (feat. Gwyneth Paltrow)
Glee Cast – Halo/Walking on Sunshine
Solange – Would Have Been the One (Groove Police Remix) – I LOVE this one!
Diddy & Dirty Money – Hello, Good Morning
Leighton Meester – Your Love’s a Drug
Sia – Clap Your Hands

Have a Blessed Day!
