Reminder: DL.ART Thankful Thursday challenge ends March 3, 2012: a butterfly and yellow.
The newest challenge is listed below

Good Morning Friends,

My husband and I went out to dinner last night. We figured we had an extra day this year so why not go for a romantic dinner.  We went early so we could watch the sun set over the ocean and enjoy the last day of the month.  I guess a lot of other people thought the same thing.  Luckily I made reservations  and got a great view of the ocean. They got a new chef not too long ago and the food was fantastic.

So onto my design: This is the birthday card that I made for my friend to go with the card set that I made and shared with you all yesterday.  This card was nothing I did at the  MG workshop. The girls are from my stash of pre- made die cuts and so is the couch from about a year ago and then I just layered  different size sheets of MME  Lost and found paper. I really like the way it came out

Here is the  New challenge:
Make a card any occasion, with at least three layers, a bow and some bling. 
  Now it is your turn-- You will have until March 17, 11:59 to submit your design

Remember a couple of weeks ago I said I was meeting with some designers and you would benefit from it. If you have heard of Monique Griffith you know who I am talking about.  There are four designers that work together to bring cricut kits to you, they consist of  Monique Griffith, Susan Rees, Wendy Lawrence and Becca Rees. You can either purchase the whole kit or just directions for most of them.  click on Monique's name to see more or click on the picture to go to the kit area
I had a video to show you, but it did not come out like I wanted, it is sideways and I can not figure out how to turn it around . So I will just show you what I purchased at the workshop as the giveaway for this challenge.  

                                                            THE PRIZE

 Is this Awesome or what?  This was designed by Monique's mother Susan Rees.  If you want to check out the kit and more info click on Monique s name above and then go to cricut kits on the menu bar at the top

You do need the cricut cartridge "Summer in Paris" to complete this project. I think you might be able to use  other similar cartridges for the images. Sentimental s might work, I would test the images on a scrap sheet of paper first.

I am entering the birthday card in the following Challenges:
CTO: Birthday with Bling
Scapalicious: Anything goes
Simon Says:Anything goes
Have a blessed day, Diana
