Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  I hope your week is going well for you.  It's been a pretty good week for me, too.

This week at Delightful Challenges, we are asking you to bring out those dies and punches.  I was really excited about this challenge because I had ordered.... ahem, my kids gave me a fantastic birthday present of great dies from My Favorite Things.  This die worked perfectly with this sweet little image.

My card features Lili the Skunk....

I also created a flower which is a cut file (a digital die if you ask me) from My Time Made Easy.  It's probably the last one I'll ever make since it seems my SCAL isn't working very well with my Cricut anymore.  I think it's time to sell my Cricut and get me another SCAL friendly electronic cutter.

The layout is from Unscripted Sketches and I think allowed me to showcase this adorable little skunk.

Image:  Lili the Skunk
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Black (Recollections)

Well now, that's a pain in the rear, that it won't work with SCAL anymore? It's quite the investment to have not work for you :( Even if it was a pain to make, the flower's gorgeous. And I love the skunk!
