Cooking with Cricut #75

HAPPY HUMP DAY!  Hang in there the week is almost over!  This post makes me feel a little sad!  This is my last CWC design team project.  I was blessed to part of such a great Design Team.  Melin is so sweet and the best to work with and Jennifer did an awesome job keeping us on track!!  I will miss all the wonderful ladies, I am so glad to have had such an amazing experience! 

So, on to the my last challenge @ CWC.  The challenge this week is "Carnival Birthday"!  I pulled out my Cricut Cake Birthday Cake cart.  For my card, I used the tent cut, welded with my Gypsy and used my ticket stamps from PTI for the sentiment.  The ladies did some aweome projects, so please stop by and join the challenge this week!
