Working through the week...

Well this week is back to school and I am teaching 4 night classes so life is crazy. So far so good ;) I knew I would like teaching but never imagined how much I would actually enjoy it. Going to a job you love is one of the greatest things in the world.

You know what else is great? Hollywood Vogue! Yep, I whipped out the Webster's this weekend and it was FUN! I got a lot done for WCMD and I wanted to share this card I created based on the Cricut Circle Blog weekly challenge.

I used my French Manor cartridge to create the screen. I had to cut it twice to the screen image and the border. I used some Core'dinations on here, as well, ran it through my Cuttlebug and then sanded it down a bit. Stamp is from Unity and I embossed that, too. Oh and how could i forget! I put the Webster's vellum behind the screen...that is how this card started. I knew the vellum was the perfect touch.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
