Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky

So this week the Simply Sunday Challenge is to use banners or pennants. No problem - I have a ton of Cricut cuts or paper and even a stamp. K Andrew showed us a LO she did using Echo Park. So since I have almost every EP collection (unused, bc it's so pretty), I decided to break a pack open and use the pennants.
As I've said before, my daughter thinks I make too much cutesy Cricut animal cards. So I stepped outside my comfort zone and didn't use my Cricut or an animal. Are you happy Taylor? Still not sure if I like it or not, but it's growing on me.

I'm entering this into Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday challenge at



  1. Darlene, this is such a SWEET card!! :) (btw, I would have loved it with a cutesy animal too -- maybe a squirrel -- hee hee!! you're too funny!) I love the bright colors of your paper -- So cheerful!! :)

    Thanks so much for sharing your talent at Getting Cricky with K Andrew this week!! :)

  5. Your card is fabulous! Sometimes you've got to try something different to expand your horizons and you hit the mark with this one. It's beautiful! So be proud of it! I've been trying to think out of the normal box lately and I've been having fun learning new things.

    Thanks for playing along at the Getting Cricky challenge.
