I'm Hooked!

Ok, so I have these Disney carts for my Cricuts and after working on the LO for last weekends Disney Pixar Blog Hop....  I {LOVE} these carts even more!  The Disney Classic is quickly moving to the top of my "favs" list! lol  The cuts on this cartridge are so cute!  It's definately a "must" if you were a Disney fan as a child...... and FYI...  my fav character was "Thumper"!  I still have my stuffed Thumper from 30 yrs ago!  lol  just sayin'!

Although I haven't made any cuts of Thumper yet, I did make this cute (or maybe it's more hilarious!) Chesshire Cat card! Every time I look at it, I start laughing! I can't help myself! It reminds me of the commercial that's out.... the one where the dogs have this ginormous cheesy grin and they have these huge bright-white teeth! Is it for dent-a-bone.... or something like that? IDK! But that commercial cracks me up everytime I see it!

I'm a huge fan of the SU Chalks!  I got my first set a few years ago and I love that I can use them on my cards and LO's!  They bring out an incredible amount of detail just by adding a little "shading"!  Then of course, you can see the "highlights" done with the "Gelly Roll" white pen. 

Using my Gypsy, I welded two shadows together (after flipping one!) to make the base of the card.  I was a little worried that the card wouldn't "sit" because the bottom portion is rounded but as you can see it sits perfectly!  After cutting the card-base, I cut another shadow (in black) to use as the actual shadow for the card itself.   Then I just added all the smiling facial pieces of this crazy cat! 

What's not to {LOVE} about a crazy smiling cat?!  LOL

Happy Scrapping!

I love your card and all the detail that you put in to his face. I haven't used chalk yet but now I think I need to get some. TFS.
