My Creative Time Sneak Peek Day #2

Hello welcome to My Creative Time Sneak Peek #2! Thought yesterday was "Fontabulous" wait for today!! Today the ladies will be showcasing "Lowercase Fun Dies" . Yep ~ Miss Emma came out with alphabet dies! YEAH!!! I have been wanting these forever!!! Thank You Emma!!! I just LOVE them!! Head on over to Emma's blog, click here, to see all the FABULOUS creations everyone has for us all!

Today I wanted to share with you a card I made using the "Circle Font" stamps! When I first saw them I knew what I wanted to make! I looked at the letter then noticed the numbers! First thing that came to mind was a vintage phone or retro phone! What ever they call it! The ones that if you didn't go all the way to the stop you had to start over again! Unfortunately I REMEMBER these phones! Just shows you how old I am! I miss these phones to be honest! Anyway I used my Cricut and my Gypsy! ! Yes ~ you heard me right! I chose the phone card from the Wild Card cartridge. I must admit this card is one BIG, BIG card! In order to adapt my number and circles it had to be!!! It fits in a 6x9 envelope ~. Huge right but I must say I love how this turned out! The new "Circle Font" stamps fit PERFECTLY in the circle die from the "Build A Banner Kit" stamp set. I used the "Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies" for my center. I didn't want to use the paper phone cord that they had. Good thing I remembered Debbie ( sweet and CLEVER friend) from  Bugjuiced is MCT's Friday Tip gal! She had a tutorial about how to make twine or just about anything squiggly!! You can click here and here to see her tip! I LOVE how this turned out too! GREAT idea Debbie!!! It was easy too!! Oh there is another little sneak on this card too!!
