I am very happy to be a Guest Designer over at

So for my card today I used the adorable
Monster Mash Cutting Files
Monster Mash Cutting Files
and came up with this...
Isn't he just the cutest???
I put him on a Action Wobble...took a video and when loaded it it came out sideways :(
So I can not show you how cute he is when he wobbles
But I can tell you he was cut out using my Cameo and was cut at
almost 4"...pretty big but with the details in the cut I wanted to make sure he was cut clean.
Instead of using the bow in the file I added some Trendy Twine in
Orange Licorice. 
 Don't you just love the great details in this cut....Adorable for sure!

For my sentiment I used the fun sentiment set from

Supplies Used:
Card Stock~ PTI~
Stampers Select White, True Black, Orange Zest
Designer Paper~ My Minds Eye~
Cut File~ Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon~
Sentiment~ Bugbites~
Extra's~ Trendy Twine~
