Cricut Cardz Challenge #58

Welcome Everyone! We're so glad you could join us this week.

It was so exciting to see all of last week's entries. They were all so amazing. We're happy to announce last week's winner of the red, black and white challenge is:

Patty from The Crafty Kitten. She made an adorble scalloped circle shaped card with a darling Hello Kitty image on it. Congratulations Patty. Your name will go into the drawing for January.

Since we have settled fully into winter, this week's challenge will be to use an image that is purely associated with winter. For challenge #58 we would like to see a SNOWMAN-USING ANY CRICUT CARTRIDGE AND ANY COLORS. There are so many Cricut cartridges with great snowman images on them. If you have a Gypsy and do a search for SNOWMAN there are over 15 different cartridges that pop up. Everyone probably has at least one of them. But just in case you don't, you can always go back to basics. How would you build a snowman outside, what basic shape do we all use to make a traditional snowman? A circle, of course! The Design Team has come up with some fabulous creations to inspire you and get your creative energy flowing.
