25 June - CCR style...

                                  is the theme for today

So excited to have you visiting me today, If you  happened to just drop by here - thank you :)  - BUT...  (always a but...) I would love it if you hopped over to Erica's Cricut craft room  at and start there to see my fellow DT friends and their creativity AND to hop by Erica's on-line store mentioned below..

OMG - as I am preparing this post -  it hit me - I AM 50 today!!!  OMG!!

  I used the exclusive;  Cricut Font & Basic Shapes #37 on the overlay (in the CCR) Under the Funky Shapes Tab.    I looked at these shapes and wanted to make one of each...   so head on over to the cricut craft Room and try this font and funky shapes.   I cut the funky shapes out at 2x2

 I embossed with the following folders you see.  I then inked them over with chalk ink and with  Dew Drop Versa Magic Multi- Surface Chalk Ink by Tsukineko; colors used today are Egg Plant and the other color is Hint Of Pesto.  These Versa Magic's were from Erica's store at

If you notice the card a little plain - It is.. on purpose..  I just didn't get "that feeling" of anything else needed to be added...     what do you think??

I cut these out  - plain card-stock

these are the embossing folders I used 

So what do you think?  Let me know. 

Please head back to Erica's Cricut Craft Room  to see my fellow Design team sisters in their creativity for today's Cricut craft Room exclusive creativity or the letter Z over at
