I'm Not Crazy and a blog challenge

So this video perfectly describes how I was feeling on February 14th.  I looked around my classroom and saw 700 flowers to be sorted, labeled, and distributed on that day.  Not to mention doing my real job- teaching!  I was a bit overwhelmed! Yeah, I had already been waking from dreams labeling hearts to put on the dang things.  I told my husband whatever he did NOT to buy me flowers for Valentine's Day!!!!

I had a friend offer to come in and help me.  How amazing that was!!!!  I could NEVER have gotten it done without her.  So here is a thank you card I made for her for her help.

This is also for my first challenge as a DT member at Fantabulous Cricut!  This week it is "Bye Bye Birdie" so come on over and submit your project with a bird on it!  I used Songbird for this,   I have had the cartridge forever but never used it so I was happy to pull that out of hiding!

Have you ever bought a cartridge then been totally disappointed with it?  That is sort of how I felt about Songbird.  Have you used Songbird?  I would love to see pics of what you have done with this cartridge.   I guess I am just not crazy about the font.  I don't know what it is about it.  However, I am thankful we had this challenge so I had the opportunity to use it!


  1. Such a sweet card, love your stitching and the colors are perfect!! Welcome to FCCB DT, excited to see your future projects :)

  2. Very pretty Thank you card. I don't have that cart when I looked at it I decided not to buy it since there are so many others on my wish list. I like the cut though. TFS. ~Tami

  3. I love your elegant thank you card, Rebecca. The stitching is beautiful and adds so much. I really need to start doing this more on my projects. Thanks for the motivation!

  4. Terrific card, that's a great color combo!!

  5. Don't be so hard on yourself. The card is adorable. You WORKED that cartridge! Looking forward to getting to know my fellow teammate on the FCCB DT.

  6. Great card. I think that I haven't used Songbird a single time so I know what you mean. Cindy FCCB DT

  7. Love the color combo and the stitching on this card. I don't have the Songbird cartridge, but I know the feeling - there are a few carts in my stash that have yet to be used because of it. Just don't tell my DH!! ;-)

  8. I totally felt the same way when I got the Songbird cart! I have done a card recently with it though, if you want to check it out on my blog ( I'm excited to be on the DT with you! You really did a great job with your card, I love the colors, and the stitching is fantastic!


  9. We all need good friends to help us out every once in awhile, and I am positive she loved the fact that you gave her a thank you card! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for visiting my blog! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥
