Fur~Babies Friday ~GD Cristi and Espresso

Hi Everyone, I am so excited that the Queen (The Scrapbooking Queen) asked me to be a guest designer today on  PRINCESS PENELOPE blog, for Fur-Babies Friday's. Thank you so much Queen and Princess Penelope for letting me share my craftiness!!

Today I created a card using my favorite go to Cartridge, Create a Critter. The puppy cut from this cartridge reminds me of my sweet fur baby, Espresso. I decided I wanted to also do a fall theme because I am in the mood for fall!! I love the colors, cooler weather and just the feel of fall. I just started decorating my house for fall, LOVE IT!!  I created this card too with the Cricut Circle Magazine challenge in mind, the challenge is use Cosmo Cricket, at least three Cricut Cuts (puppy, 2 tags layered (the puppy is on), and 2 leaves), and I added embossing to my leaves.
