First Cartridge Chaos Challenge & a Giveaway!


My friend Meriah at Two Scraptastic Gals and I are going to host a series of challenges called Cartridge Chaos! You can see our list by CLICKING HERE.The Challenge is to use the cartridges that we already own and have in common! This Challenge will be posted on Mondays. You will have a whole week to enter the challenge (thru Sunday) and 4 days (thru Thursday) to vote for the next Cartridge you want us to use. Only one of the blogs will have a Mr. Linky & a Live Poll. I hope you will join us! Today is the first challenge! Our First Cartridge will be.... Graphically Speaking! Our Great friend Momo from Made by Momo, picked our cartridge for the very first challenge. CLICK HERE to enter the Cartridge Challenge!

We will have a Winner each week and that winner will then have an entry into the Grand Prize at the end of the month! Naturally the Prize will be a CRICUT CARTRIDGE! We will be alternating weeks for the poll and Mr. Linky. So this week the Mr. Linky & The Poll can be found on
Meriah's Blog. But we will both have projects for the Challenge.

The Poll will always be located on the upper right hand corner Be Sure to vote for Next Week's Cartridge by going to
Meriah's Blog. We used Random.org to select the 5 cartridges on the Poll.

Here is my Project:
Everything on this card is cut from Grafically Speaking and I mean EVERYTHING! The Scalloped Circles were welded on my Gypsy.

Recipe:
Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge
Martha Stewart Valentines Mat Pad
Martha Stewart Holiday Mat Pad
Celebrate it - Brown and Pink Ribbon
Stampin' Up - Pink Passion (Base of Card)

  13. More comments from me:)

    So I forgot to tell you. Blogger now has spam filtering so you can turn off your capcha and still won't get hit from those random spammers on your site.

    I know that has nothing to do with your card but still. Love the idea of this cartridge chaos challenge. One of my new years goals is to use every cartridge i have at least one. Too bad that grpahically speaking cartridge isn't one i have. didn't look like anything I would play around with on it. But, I do love what you made with it. Very very creative. Meriah's Photo's are awesome!!
