Iron on Vinyl Project

I'm lovin' this Siser Easy Weed iron on vinyl! This is another project for my Disney fanatic friend Jane. I still have not done anything for myself with this awesome vinyl, but I need to! I used the Cricut Mickey and Friends cartridge to cut the design.

My entry for Nov Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge

So, it's been 2 1/2 months since I posted - what's up with that?? I thought jumping on board with a challenge would get me out of my creative slump, so here is what I made for the cricut Circle monthly challenge.
The challenge is to create a project using your "sign/symbol" of fall, and add texture to your project using a Cuttlebug, distressing, ink, stickles, etc. The project must include at least 2 different Cricut cuts also. For my card, I embossed the burlap looking paper using my Cuttlebug and the Tim Holtz "Plaid" embossing folder, and fringed the edges of it with MS fringe scissors. The branch of leaves and acorns was printed and cut with my Cricut Imagine and the Enjoy the Seasons Imagine cartridge, using the layers feature. The leaves are double layers, and the acorns are mounted with 3-D Dots. Happy Thanksgiving is from the Simply Charmed cartridge, and was also printed and cut with the Imagine. I edged all of the cuts with Copic markers.
I have a ton of ideas in my head of things I want to make, so as soon as I find my crafting table, (and I know it is under that mess somewhere!) maybe I will stay in crafting mode and get some things made.
