Cooking With Cricut's SURPRISE "Thank You" Blog Hop!!

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to Cooking With Cricut’s very special SURPRISE "Thank You" Blog Hop. Why is it so special? There are a couple of reasons! The first reason -- it is our 100th Cooking With Cricut challenge and the second (and most important) is to thank our wonderful leader and "Executive Chef" Melinda Beltran.

Melin started the Cooking With Cricut challenges in October 2010 to encourage crafters to find new and different ways to use their Cricut cartridges. And she has accomplished that and so much more! She has given scores of crafters a place on her Design Teams which quickly turned into a sisterhood of women, who care for each other; who encourage each other; who lift each other and their families up in prayer; and who have shared their hearts and their art through many outreach projects.

So this is our SURPRISE "Thank You" tribute to our beloved Melin! If you came from Madison’s blog, Funky Cards, you’re in the right place! If you’ve joined us in mid-hop and would like to start at the beginning, please head back to Cooking With Cricut – you won’t want to miss any of these awesome cards!!

*Groovy Times Cricut cartridge - flowers
*Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge - rectangles and mats
*Cricut Decals Digital Cricut cartridge - Cricut Queen
*Jaded Blossom - Teacher Appreciation stamp set, Curly Label Die
*Fiskars - border punch

*I wanted to make a special card to thank Melin, so I found this card-in-card design that I thought would be perfect!

 *Here's the front....

 *....with the first flap opened up.

 *Then it opens up to the little card inside!

*Here's the inside of the little card.

*I thought this was the perfect cut and sentiment for the inside of this card!

I'd also like to thank Jen for doing such an amazing job helping Melin with this team full of such amazing, and talented women :OD

Thanks so much for hopping with us. We hope you’ll join us and leave your own "thank you" in the comment section for Melin at CWC! Now it’s time to head on over to Kemma at Kemma's Cards  – she’s the next stop on this party train!
