Merci Card+Awesome blog candy again...

TGIF  I am sure you guys are excited it is Friday!!

My project today is a card-Super easy!.. I did it in about 20 minutes...


First of all the paper I used was-Echo Park "For The Record".  I thought the paper went well with the cartridge "French Manor"  but never fear if you are not in the circle and do not have this cart you can use "Summer in Paris" and substitute a bit. I cut my tower at 5" and Merci at 1 ".

I used pop dots on the tower.  The ribbon is just black satin ribbon from Stampin Up.

I hope you have been to Everyday Cricut to check out Monique's project and another new kit... If not you have to click HERE.  She also has some great blog candy...

Now for my blog candy-Hmmm  How about another kit??? Yikes Did I just say that? 
This is my Live Simply kit... I used Graphically Speaking and Accent Essentials to make it.

All you have to do is become a follower and leave a comment.  I am getting closer to my goal.  Also LOOK FOR US ON FACEBOOK .

Guess what?  I will be back on Everyday Cricut tomorrow for my Normal Saturday Designer Post.  So don't forget to check back...

We hope you have had as much fun as we have this week.  Thanks again to Melanie and Joy and to all of you guys for making it so rewarding.
