Cards that Care

Hi everyone, I am taking part in the Cards that Care Blog Hop that Vera has organized.  For details on the Cards that Care go here.  This is such a great cause and there are so many prizes.  Be sure to comment on everyone's blog to increase your chances of winning.  If you get lost along the way you can see the complete list of participants at Vera's blog.

If you have arrived from Annie's blog you are on the right track.
I decided to break into my Doodlebug papers that came in one of my CARDS publication goodie boxes.  I love the colors of this paper!

For this card I used my Cricut to cut out the skater and then I used some red ribbon for her skirt and a SRM sticker.  This is for the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge - Christmas

Your next stop along the way is Rachel.  Happy Hopping!
