That cake is adorable!!! Perfect card :)

Whew! Thanks Random.org!!  Congrats to all my winners!! Please e-mail me at crazyaboutcricut@hotmail.com with the name of the hop you won in the subject line (that would be a BIG help!!).  Since it is the holidays, and I know people may not be checking their messages or blogs as much I will give all my winners until Jan. 4 to get in touch with me.  After that I'll have to pick another winner :(  

And now onto the special edition of FAMILY FRIDAY!!  I have had my annual big project of making calendars for my family (extended family included!), and this year I just didn't seem to find the time until this month!  I am happy to say that it looks like I will be able to get them done, excluding any copying incidents (fingers crossed).  I will definitely post about that as soon as I can :o)   But this major project has thrown my blogging definitely out of whack.  So I didn't get a chance to post this last Family Friday, so here it is!  (The challenge was to create a project with a snowman.)

I found this HUGE sign that said HO HO HO at a store that was going out of sale a couple of years ago.  I thought they would be great to hang in my house.  I hadn't decorated them at all before, so I thought adding some Cricut cuts would look awsome :o)  Here is the cut that my daughter added using the Joys of the Season cart, and Cricut markers (I'll add the picture of all three of them up on my wall in just a bit!):

Of course we had to add some Stickles!!  This snowman is now the proud owner of a blingy scarf, hat, buttons, and broom :o)

First I had my kids draw out a snowman scene. When they were finished, I scanned the image and they used Photoshop to color in the images. I then added their names and dates and set up a page to print four at a time onto card stock. Once we cut the drawings apart we had four card fronts finished.

We mounted the card fronts onto a red mat and then onto a card body. We added a "to" and "from" to the inside and my boys stamped their own personalized stamps on the back. TA DA!! We have hand drawn personalized cards for my boys to give to Grandparents, teachers etc. I just LOVE them!!

Isn't that sooooooooo super cute?!?!  Cheryl always has such amazing projects!  The Family Friday DT will be taking a break next week, but we will be back for New Year's Eve!  TFL, and hope everyone had a chance to craft today!!
