Now for my project. I chose to create a card using the Cricut Lite “Savory” cartridge. My inspiration came from the background pattern paper. It came from a stack called “Raspberry Cordial” . I just love the colors and the pattern.

To make this card I used Recollections Cream Card stock
Recollections textured Card stock for the red.
All the cuts were made from my stash which is a collection
of Lots of different papers.
The card is 5 ½ x 4 ¼
The red mat was cut at 5 ¼ x 4
The patterned mat is 5 x3 ¾
The Pitcher and glass were manipulated with my Gypsy
And cut just under 3 inches
I uses an EK success punch on the red strip
added a piece of fun ribbon from Michael’s Dollar bin .
The sentiment I found on the internet and printed it out
Using “Curls MT” font at 16 points onto a white mat cut with
the Lite “Lacy Labels “ cartridge at 2 ¾ x ¾
I did a little inking with memento chocolate and
studio G Raspberry, doodled a little with a black gel pen.
 Now the really important part my piece of the puzzle is the letter “A”.

 Don’t forget to visit all the blogs and collect the letters to so you can be eligible for the Blog Candy!
