Cooking with Cricut Birthday Challenge

This week's challenge at Cooking with Cricut is to use a cake, cupcake or balloon cut on a project. I made this birthday card with some scraps I had laying on my desk from a previous project. I used the birthday cake from "Stretch Your Imagination."

This card also marks the start of my annual Lenten project. The past four years I have made a card each day for Operation Write Home. This organization collects cards and then ships them to soldiers overseas so the soldiers have handmade cards to send to their family members back home. This year, I am doing something a little different. I have decided to take a class at Big Picture Classes called Scrapbooking Your Faith, which starts March 1st and runs 4 weeks. I plan to devote a large amount of time to the class, so I won't be able to make a card every day. For the days of Lent before and after the class, I will make a card per day. For the duration of the class, I have set the goal of 4 cards per week. I will be sharing my cards and projects from the class right here!
