Feeling Crabby? Good news to cheer you up!




Ever feel like this?  I thought this would be a fun card to give to a friend who's having a hard time or feeling crabby.  This sentiment is on the new "Pack Your Bags" Cricut cartridge, which is full of the cutest word art and images, as well as cards and stamp-like images.


I cut this "feeling crabby" at 2-1/2" using the Cricut Pack Your Bags cartridge and the question mark was from Cricut Don Juan cartridge and cut at 1-1/4".  The frame on the outside is from the Twinkle Toes Cricut cartridge and cut at 3".  I cuttlebugged the frame with the Divine Swirls folder for fun.  Wiggle eyes add some whimsy.


And if you were feeling crabby, here's something to majorly cheer you up:


My friend, incredible scrapbooker and Saturday guest designer on Everyday Cricut,  Monique Griffith has finished her Stage 3 breast cancer treatment and shows no sign of further disease!!

She has redesigned her blog, Monique Griffith Designs (check it out HERE!) and will be having a Ustream tonight to celebrate her incredible journey and recovery!  I hope you will check it out!  Here are the details:

WHERE: Monique's Ustream Channel
WHEN: 9 pm EST, 8 pm Central, 7 pm Mountain, 6 pm Pacific Time TONIGHT - Friday, 1/14
WHO: Monique and Wendy (both awesome Saturday designers at Everyday Cricut)
WHAT: Fun, laughter and prizes!!

Have a great weekend!!

  1. Rhonda H said...Definitely feelin crabby. Too much snow. Too much cold. Cabin fever. And Aunt Flo. They do not mix.
    BUT! I do think that is a cute card. And I am checking back regularly for the BEST OF Cartridge series you've been doing. That has helped me get to know more about several carts I had totallly blown off.

  25. I don't know if I missed it but where did the crab come from? I was wondering the cartridge on it or is it part of the sentiment? LOVE THIS PROJECT!!!
