MPS DT Challenge

Happy New Year Everyone!  I hope that you are all having a great start to 2011.  I usually don't make resolutions, but I am making a crafty resolution this year to get some of my stacks of photos scrapped!!  I also got a flip camera for Christmas and hope to make some videos this year.  Do you have any resolutions this year (crafty or not)?  

Ok.  Onto the crafts!  Robyn over at My Pink Stamper is having a design team call.  I decided to participate in her challenge which is to make something with your favorite cartridge using her favorite colors which are pink, brown, green, and a color of your choice.  Choosing my favorite cart was easy as I am head over heels in love with Create a Critter.  I choose a cute little turtle and spiced him up with some glitter and embossing.  It is really neat how you can change a cut just by running a piece or two through the cuttlebug.  It gives great texture!  I also spiced up the card with twine from The Twinery and action wobbles which are so neat!!!  I finished the card off with one of Robyn's cute stamps from Even More Punny-licious.  You can check out her stamps here.  Here is what I came up with!  Enjoy!
