When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Provocraft and Anna Griffin Cardmaking contest

Now, I'm really getting my full benefits being a Cricut Circle member.  Yesterday, as I was reading the Cricut Circle Blog, I learned that Provocraft will be launching another product and it will be launched at HSN on the 20th of Jan.  And in lieu of this, PC is running a Cardmaking Contest that is open for everyone.  Here are the few rules that you must follow:

1.) Create a card using at least one Anna Griffin product (stickers, rub-ons, paper, stamp, punches, etc.)
2.) Die-cut images using one or more of the following Cricut cartridges: Don Juan, Wall Decor and more and Winter Lace Seasonal Cartridge.
3.) Send your entry to Provo Craft's address:
              PROVO CRAFT
              Attention: Jinger Adams
              10876 S. Riverfront Parkway, Suite 600,
              South Jordan, UT  84095
4.) Make sure to mail your entries no later than January 17th.

Here's the entry I made:

 Among the three cartridges, it was Winter Lace that appeals more to me while trying to conceptualize my card entry.  But heck, I just can't cut snowflakes for my card, right!?  Then, I thought of one of my faves, which is Snow Friends Seasonal Cartridge.  Don't you just love those cutie snowmen?
 Everything is just glittery on this card.  I was almost done with the card and then I almost forgot
one of the requirements and that is an Anna Griffin product.
I start digging into my stash and I found one of her classic Victorian lavander paper that is just so
perfect for the winter scene I made.
My kids really love this card.  I also used Peachy Keen Stamps for the face.
I am also using this card as my entry to:
Fantabulous Cricut #42 Challenge - Winter Clothes/Accessories

 Here's the inside of the card.  The Anna Griffin Victorian paper I used is a double sided and I did nothing
special inside except add an Anna Griffin Sentiments and snowflake.
Again, the snowflake was cut using Winter Lace cartridge.
The back of the card:
CARDBASE: Anna Griffin
PAPERS: American Craft, DCWV, Bazzill, Martha Stewart and GP 110 white
STAMP: Peachy Keen Stamps
INKPAD: Memento
TOOLS: Cricut Expression, Gypsy, MS glitter glue, MS glitters, PC paper trimmer, ATG, Zip Dry, Stampin' Up! ticket corner punch, and MS corner craft punch
CARTRIDGE: Winter Lace (snowflakes), Snow Friends (Snowmen) and Picturesque (Aspen)
EMBELLISHMENT: Recollection flatback pearls

Join in the fun.  If you haven't heard of this yet, you still have a week at most to work on your entry.    Winners will receive both the new Provo Craft as well as Anna Griffin products.  

If nothing else, we at least have the chance to see our cards on TV, right!?  Goodluck ladies and hugs to all of you.  Mailing this card now...
