SURPRISE "Thank You" Blog Hop

Welcome to Cooking With Cricut’s 

very special 

SURPRISE “Thank You” Blog Hop  

Why is it so special?  
There are a couple of reasons!  

The first reason -- it is our 
100th Cooking With Cricut challenge 
and the second (and most important) is to 

our wonderful leader 
and “Executive Chef”

 Melinda Beltran!!!

To find out more about Melin please visit Cooking With Cricut.  

If you came from Becky's blog, Scrap Circus, you’re in the right place!  
If you’ve joined us in mid-hop and would like to start at the beginning,
please head back to Cooking With Cricut – 
you won’t want to miss any of these awesome cards!!

Here's my card for Melin.......

 The card base was made using the Birthday Bash cartridge.

 I cut two card bases so that I could have a shadow for the inside of the card. 

The font is CK Tween.

Love this stamp!!!

The card base can be found on the Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge 
on page 40 (card/tag feature).

Funny little note to self.....next time I have an idea "pop" into my head
make sure I have a cartridge that has the image I need!   LOL :o)  
I tried making another card but couldn't get this one out of my head--
I wanted to use this pretty paper!

Thanks so much for hopping with us and celebrating our "Executive Chef".  
She is an inspiration to us all!!

We hope you’ll join us and leave your own “thank you” in the 
comment section for Melin at CWC!  Now it’s time to head on
 over to Olivia at ORM Crafty Nights
she’s the next stop on this party train!!
