Countdown Day 7... Getting Buggy

Here is a snap shot of our Miracle DD this week this photo was taken by our oldest DD. (You can read my previous post to find out more...)

This challenge Jen's 30/30 challenge has been difficult to say the least one of the harder things I have had to do. I am on a downhill slide now only 6 more days to go. I have started to make up a list of things envelopes, adhesive and postage are at the top of that list. To make this card I resorted to Mod Podge and a toothpick, LOL!! If I was not in the challenge I would have used my Xyron sticker maker or Tombo Multi liquid adhesive to place the Cricut images. (For those who need a quick refresher I ran out of my fave adhesives half way through the challenge.)

My Sister has let me keep the Cricut since she was here last and I think I am catching on. I just saw this week that the Beyond Birthday cartridge she has makes these cute window cards either rectangle or oval. This is the largest square card the original cutter mat can make it measures 3 3/4" square and it will also cut a matching envie. I wanted to play around more but I need to replace the mats they are no longer sticky have to wait 6 more days otherwise it is just a waste of card stock. I have found a tip to make the mat last longer, they say to spray the mat with removable adhesive.
