Card Creating Tuesady at MCCR

    Good morning my friends, today is Card Creating Tuesday at My Cricut Craft Room and here is my Design team project for today.  Today's theme is "Cheer Up".  Every one needs a little cheering up once in a while and I thought the Character for Snow White...Happy would be just the guy to do the job:)

    So I dug out my Happily Ever After cartridge and looked for that happy little man.  I cut him out at 3 1/2".  It was a little tricky cause the pieces are so tiny, but I did it.

     Then I want to have one of those bubbles, where you put the sentiment in, like the character is talking,
( can not think of what they call them, Brain cramp) and I remembered Create A Critter had one, so I pulled that cartridge out and cut one out at 1 3/4" and the second at 2".  I used the Cheer up stamp from CTMH and some gems from Bo Bunny.  Next I wanted a flower or something to put in the corner, and lately the Art Philosophy cartridge has been my go to one and so I grabbed it and cut out a couple of daisy type flowers in 2 different card stock papers,

The card size is 5x5, with the mats being 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 and  3 1/2x3 1/2 and  3 1/4 x 3 1/4
And here is the finished project:)
