Hey all you crafty cats out there!

I was as busy as a mouse in my craft room today and I have a couple of projects I would like to share with you.

For some reason, I woke up in the middle of the night last night and could not get back to sleep. So, that translates into checking out blogs!! I figure its good use of time :) Anyhow, I went over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what they had this week for a challenge. As soon as I read the challenge a card popped into my head. I just had to use my cut search to find the images I needed and wha-la, a card!!!

The challenge was to use something musical on your creation. I decided to use some musical notes and was super excited to find I had a cartridge with some of those! I bought the Hannah Montana cartridge when it first came out, but I don't think I have ever used it until today!!! It just goes to show, you never know what type of cut you will go looking for.
