Festive Friday August 12, 2011

Well what is Festive Friday all about?
   I have been trying to explain the theme of each of the days of the week. So the basis of today (Festive Friday) was based on my favorite festive day *CHRISTMAS* Just a few of my favorite things.... Family, Christmas, Cricut and Disney, in no particular order, except family IS first. So, I thought what a better way to stay festive all year long! I LOVE Christmas but I do realize and respect the fact that others may not like or even celebrate Christmas, so I think it is great for everyone to be festive in thier own way.
    The only real theme of today is to be Festive..... so this includes Halloween (seems to be todays favorite) Valentine's day, thanksgiving, birthdays....etc.
    Within that theme the design team may create ANYTHING they want..... My only 3 rules for them on the days that they are featured here is to use thier Cricut Cartridges, No SVGs, and No digital stamps. Now the ladies are on some other design teams..... that have rules different than mine, so I encourage you to check out thier blogs to see the other things that do not fit in my rules for the days they do stuff with me.
   Outside of the 3 rules... they may create ANYTHING they want as long as it falls under the 'name' of the day. Today being FESTIVE FRIDAY! They can make a card, scrapbook layout, home decor item, clothing or fabric item, vinyl...etc
  
    My hope for you as a reader/follower is that, with so many members on my design team and so many samples daily that you will find some new blogs that are really 'your cup of tea' as far as common interests and talent level. So hopefully you find some new blogs and friends along the way

So today, I am giving away the set of K. Andrew Stamps and shipping out prizes... Please check your facebook meesages today if you have won a prize in the past.


Lucinda must share my love of christmas.....
She used the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge, she is always so nice and I am lucky to have her on the Design Team. Please make sure you stop by her blog http://thegrowinggibson.blogspot.com/ 


Melissa (still playing with her NEW Cricut Imagine!) She used the Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridge and the Baby Boutique Imagine Cartridge. She helps me to prove that the Cricut Imagine Baby Boutique Cartridge is not jsut if you have a baby, VERY common misconception. Her blog to see how she made this card, the inside and out, is http://pinkpolkadotscrapping.blogspot.com
