365 Cards: Cosmo Cricket Week!

Happy Monday to ya! I just want to start out by saying that Sponsor Week over at 365 Cards has got to be my favorite thing! And of course I adore Cosmo Cricket so I am extra excited to get started. Ok, now that we got that out of the way, todays challenge at 365 Cards is to make a girly card and use the word GIRL on it. I believe Gloria is working with the Girl Friday Paper Pack today which is so fun and so girly.  Well, you know I have the Mr. Campy paper pack  and lets just say its full of flannel print and cars... NOT very girly. Plus I actually have some specific challenges that I want to save it for so I thought of using another Cosmo Cricket line today that I have in my stash,  AND it has a Girl Sentiment. So Win-Win! Here is my card using Honey Pie:(click on this link to see the entire line!)

If you have never been a proud owner of a Cosmo Cricket Paper Pack, then you are in for a real treat. One of the few things I LOVE about them is they come loaded with journaling cards and sentiments (plus all the gorgeous paper!), and they even have sketch and layout ideas included to help you jump start your creativity. All of their packs are strongly designed and so much fun that I have a bit of a hard time cutting into it. That means it is LOVED! We hope you love seeing this week all the wonderful things Cosmo Cricket has to offer!

Isn't that GIRL STUFF card just perfect for a girly card?? I thought there would be nothing better than to make this a baby card. Of course I am now seeing the phrase "girl stuff" paired with a carriage kind of has a double meaning... which I think is extra fun!
I used some stickles for the carriage and added my current favorite embellishment: PTI Buttons. I just can't get enough of them! I will try really hard not to use too many this week : )
That's all for today. Pretty straight forward. I am so excited to see what each DT does with their paper pack. I think it's safe to say that we each LOVE Cosmo Cricket!

Thanks for checking in with my today. Have a great one!
