No Shirt, No Shoes, No Ink, No Colored Cardstock, No Foam, and Out of Ideas

Hi everyone, Beth here from thunderbirdlindybydesign.  This quick banner was not made in my craft room.  We are traveling for the Holidays, and I had the bright idea that I would have time to make something while I was gone.  I packed my Cricut, Gypsy, White, and red cardstock and a paper pad from GCD studios called Home for the Holidays.  I also packed my ATG, and nothing else.  What was I thinking?  And with the help of my inlaws, they provided a hole punch and some double sided foam tape that you use for putting down carpeting, and white ribbon, this is what I came up with.




I used Tis the Season for the Mittens and Cardinal, Jolly Holiday's for Winter Wishes, and Christmas for the Snowflakes.  The Mittens were cut with their layers at 6.11 tall using the Gypsy.  Winter Wishes was cut at 3.12 tall along with it's layers, the cardinal was cut at 2.29 tall along with it's layers, and the snowflakes were cut at 2.5 tall.

It sure is hard making something without all of your supplies at your finger tips.  It needs ink and glitter, and my craftroom!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, Thanks Sheila for allowing me to be a guest designer, until next time,  Beth.

Well, you sure did better than what I would have come up with. Hee! Hee! I went over to Mom's house not too long ago as she wasn't feeling well. She didn't feel like driving. I about went crazy trying to help her though her projects in her little craft space. She still had everything, but I guess I am just completely spoiled with our craft room at home. Hee! Hee! You did a fabulous job and the project doesn't reflect any limitations. I just looks like a very wonderful and Sassy tutorial!
