Muffins to Enjoy and a Float My Boat Card


Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!  I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating the bounty of the harvest
and your many blessings. 

*This post contains my projects for both My Craft Spot and Fantabulous Cricut.

This week at My Craft Spot, the challenge is A Treat for You - create something to go with the gift of food.  Although my son is doing fabulously well on his road to recovery, he is still limited with what he can do and so we've been enjoying a great deal of mother-son time.  Fortunately for me (but unfortunate for my waistline!!), he loves to bake as much as I do.  We recently made a big batch of mini chocolate chip banana muffins so I decided to take some to work to share with my colleagues.  They were a hit!


To make the bag toppers, I used a shape from Elegant Edges.  I used the shadow for the base and then cut the "regular" shape in half to layer on the topper after running it through my crimper.  The cute little bananas were cut from Create a Critter 2 and stamped with a Peachy Keen face.  The little banners were also cut from Create a Critter 2 and stamped with a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Sweet Sentiments - Set #2.  I finished things off with some raffia. 



Be sure to head over to My Craft Spot to see the other delicious projects created to inspire you for this week's challenge.  Remember to link up your own project before next Monday night to be eligible for this week's fabulous prize.

This week at Fantabulous Cricut, the theme is Columbus Day - make a project using a ship.  I used Wild Card 2 for this one.


For the inside of the card, I cut the ship and adhered it over a Martha Stewart punched heart.  The top half of the blue background was embossed using a cloud folder that I received from my amazingly talented friend and design team sister, Jayne, of Jayne Designs.  (Thank you, Jayne!!)  I also added a Martha Stewart XOX border to the bottom of the inside of my card.


The front of the card was cut to remove the top half.  I simply adhered the "You float my boat" word art to the front and then added some brads to secure the card closed with some baker's twine from My Craft Spot.   

Be sure to head over to Fantabulous Cricut to check out the rest of the design team inspiration - and to link up your own "ship" project for your chance to win this week's wonderful prize!
