How you Peeling????

Hello, and happy Thursday. I hope your week has been good so far. We have a busy weekend ahead of us. This weekend is the Summerfest/carnival/lawn fete/whatever you want to call it event at our church. My DH and I are both volunteering to work on Saturday (separate times for childcare reasons). Then Sunday is our family picnic on my DH's side of the family. Oh yeah, and we have a birthday party to go to on Friday evening too. Guess we WON'T be camping this weekend =(. Well, as promised on Tuesday, I wanted to share a card with you today that I made with this adorable Banana image from QKR Stampede. I have been eyeing this guy since I first started checking out the QKR Stampede website. So I finally got him this time.

Isn't it cute????!!! I just think he is so funny. Well I stamped him off and colored with markers. I trimmed him and layered it onto a yellow CS circle. Now I didn't' have any banana background paper on hand (gee I wonder why? lol), so I decided to try out my Cricut markers. I got them when I first got my Cricut, but never opened the package. So I thought now was the time to try. I found this little banana image on the Create-a-Critter Cartridge. So I experimented, and ended up with what you see above. I guess I could have put the rows a little closer together, but all and all not bad for the first time playing with the markers. I also added little faces to them to go with the banana stamped image. I added some yellow ribbon, and peachish colored buttons. Last I hand wrote the sentiment..."Hope you are peeling better soon!", and cut with an oval punch. I layered that onto a yellow scalloped oval, and attached with foam tape.

If you like this cute and silly banana image, be sure to check out the QKR Stampede store for more adorable images.

Very cute! I haven't used my Cricut markers much, but I do use my Cri-kits gel pens. I found the markers were a little 'thick' and sometimes they bleed a bit depending on the paper. Maybe I should get them out and mess with them some more. This looks great and using the markers worked out really well for this card.
I saw the comment above, are you looking for a little craft iron? I have one and got it at one of the big stores. Don't remember which one now though.
