Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #54

Happy Monday bloggers! Gosh, it is storming here, lots of thunder and lightning, buckets of rain. I guess I probably shouldn't be on the computer :O

I have a card to enter into Fantabulous Cricut's Challenge Me Monday contest. The challenge this week is to create a project using an umbrella or hat. I used one of my favorite Tim Holtz stamps of a man holding an umbrella. I embossed it twice with black embossing powder and added Rock Candy Stickles to make the umbrella look wet. The background paper is from DCWV and I embossed it with Cuttlebug's polka dots folder. I cut the window from the Christmas cart on my Gypsy and adhered it with foam dots to give more dimension. The kitty was cut from Animal Kindgom. Kitty has a pink rhinestone nose and is happily dry and lounging on a pillow of white felt. The curtain is a ribbon stitched to create a ruffle (about the limit of my sewing ability!). I added an orange flower brad to the top of the window frame.

Okay, another huge crash of thunder so I'll take that as my sign to sign off! Have a great day everyone :)

  6. That's fabulous! So creative with the rain. Just love the cat inside the window. I tried to do something similar last winter with a kitty looking out the window at snow, but didn't have a window cut. I have to relook at my carts to see if I have one. Terrific job!!--Pat N.
