Sorry I'm a little late with my post this week!
This week over at BBTB2 our DT sister Suzanne chose the theme Fontalicious as the challenge! I love fonts and if you could see my fonts file on my computer you would see that I am a bit of a font junkie!!

I made a card for Connor's dad who will be turning 50 next week.

I have a few favourite cricut fonts namely Don Juan, the font on Wild Card and my new fav Billionaire (it welds together so well!)

My card is 6x6" and I have covered it with a black/white/grey stripey backing paper. 50 is cut using Don Juan cartridge at 5 1 /2" shadow in silver mirricard and base in black card which I have embossed with a dots embossing folder. Foam pads have been used between the numbers for some dimension. I have used the Billionaire Lite cartridge for the letters and welded dad together using Design Studio which has been cut three times using silver mirricard and adhered together to give it a 'chipboard' thickness, the top layer has been embossed with the dots folder also.

Have a look over at BBTB2 and see the 'fontalicious' projects the DT have created this week! We would love to see your creations using any font from any of your cartridges!

Thanks so much for visiting today and keep warm! It's been snowing here in Wales since last Friday!

This card is adorable and Connor's dad should love it! I do. Fabulous layers and wonderful embossing gives it that "man" feel!

I have missed your blog - and YOU! So happy to see you on-line.

Stay warm in the snow and enjoy your cozy time!!
