I hope everyone is having a Fantabulous Friday. I was sooo excited when I found out that our MAG Design Team had to use the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. I'm not sure if you're like me, but Hello Kitty was and still is my favorite childhood character. I'm hoping it will be my little 2 year old's too, but for now she's all about DORA (lol). This weeks MAG Challenge #37 will be using the Hello Kitty Greetings pg 65. If this is your first time hearing of MAG Challenges, then let me give you a little scoop and you can head on over to blog and read for yourself and JOIN IN ON THE FUN!!!

Cart - Hello Kitty Greetings Pg. 65 (only) - I cut everything at 2 3/4"
Papers - DCWV, Recollections, Bazzil Basics Bling
Tools - MS Punch (Dove, Snowflakes), EK Punch (Labels), White Gel Pen, MPS (Winter Punnies), i-Rock
Embellies - Stickles, MS Glitter, Bling
I can tell you that this was an easy project in my head to put together, but when it came to putting it to fruition, I was reminded why I Love and not-so love this cartridge sometimes. Those Dang tiny pieces when it comes to layering and putting everything together. Don't get me started on those eyes and nose pieces...whew! **sn: I also had to do this without my gypsy, which would have been a little easier, but it was still hung up on my computer doing an update with Cricut Sync. Ugghh ** On top of that it started thundering & lightening and I had to shut everything down even in the middle of the update. Dbl Ugghh **. But I LOVE, LOVE the result regardless of the work behind it. I call it "My True Blue Winter Kitty". Let me know your thoughts. I Love reading your comments, my friends. Smooches...
p.s. I will also be entering this into the following other challenges:
