Today is Throwback Thursday over on Emma's blog My Creative Time. Every Thursday she posts a challenge for us the "throwback" part is that she gives us one older Cricut Cartridge to use in the challenge. If we don't have that particular cartridge she usually gives us another guideline to keep within the game. Example: If you don't have Once Upon A Princess there must be pink in the project, etc. So this week her challenge was to make a shape card using Create A Critter and it must have the color orange in it. I LOVE Create A Critter and as soon as I read the challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. SUNSHINE....isn't she adorable? I don't have a Gypsy so in order to "weld" my card together I must do it manually. :) I simply cut 2 black suns @ 5"using the shadow feature in black. To give it some more stability I also cut a white sun using the blackout feature. I then scored the back side of the card at about 1/2"-3/4" and adhered the front to the back. And Voila! :) I had to give Sunshine a more feminine look so I gave her sultry googly eyes and an adorable orange bow. I'm thrilled with how she turned out. The finished card measures 5 1/2" round. :)

Hop on over to Emma's blog and see what she's got going on. She is absolutely amazing. If you cannot find inspiration in her work you simply don't have it in you to be inspired. :)

Thank you Emma for the fun challenge this week.

Keep Kreating,
