Be Inspired # 27

It's April 15th, which is Tax Day here in the USA, and our challenge at CuttlebugChallenge this week is to use numbers on our cards. This card is a fun one for someone special! I embossed a very shimmery background paper with the "You" Cuttlebug Folder for the background, and then cut out "You're" from "You're Invited" with the Cricut Beyond Birthdays cartridge. The "#1" cut outs are from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. Everything is edged in gold with an Elmer's Metalic paint marker. The seal is a sticker from an office supply store, adhered to a circle, and paper pierced to give it interest. The ribbon is from Michael's.

Check out the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with numbers, and then do your magic! Post your creations to Mr. Linky, and be sure to sign up as a follower here and over there! We have had our 1,000th follower, so another new Cuttlebug Folder has been revealed at CBC! These will be introduced at CHA this summer! Cuttlebug Challenge is the place to be! Be sure to Save The Date for our magnificent Spa Weekend coming up May 1, 2, and 3!!! Over $1,000 in prizes, WOW!!!!!

Happy Numbers here and with your taxes!

Have a honey of a week!
