So I popped over at the Cricut Circle MB this week, which I hadn't done in a while since I've been busy with digital scrapbooking forums - and I'm glad I did!  Sweetpea1030 has posted that Polly Craft is closing down this week!  I mean I hadn't heard of this site before but she has a lot of very cute digis!  I grabbed me the bundle and some (hehe!) for a good price.

The image on this card is one of the ones from the bundle I bought and is called Taking a Break from the Swings and Slides line.  This card is 5 x 5 and I kept it pretty monochromatic (I'm really bad at this) and I'm entering it in Enfy's Going Buggy blog challenge this month.  I'm also linking this at the Polly Craft blog as sort of a farewell linky party; wish I had known about this site before but I'm so glad I got some of Paula's very cute images before she closes down her digi store for good :(

After coloring the image with my Prismacolor pencils, I cut the image out with a Nestability die and then chalked around it with a light brown chalk.  The sentiment "Cheers" and its shadow were cut with the Cameo; the font I used was Ravie, which is already in my computer. 

I kept the inside plain, but did use a strip of left-over patterned cardstock to dress up the top a bit.  This card will be for my son's 3rd Grade teacher and I'm going to let him address the inside sentiment himself. 

I can't wait to color more of the Polly Craft digis in the bundle I bought - so stay tuned!  Thanks for popping over here today!
