My name is Carol from Carol's Creations. I am a new Design Team Member. I am a mom of to 2 earthly angels and 2 heavenly angels. I love animals but cats are my favorite. I love all kinds of crafting but since I got my Cricut in 2008 I have become obsessed with paper crafting! I now have 4 Cricuts including the Cricut Cake, plus the Gypsy. I create cards, scrapbook layouts, tags, ATC's, 3-D paper crafts and who knows what else. ***Non-paper craft related *** I am also a HUGE fan of Halloween. I have made some costumes, a countdown calendar, multiple wreaths, and some disturbing baby doll alterations for Halloween props. I am always thinking about the next Halloween and planning the next project. Feel free to browse through my blog to see what I have created over the years. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a little about me and what I love.

A character can be -- a number, a letter, a persons personality, etc., so I am showcasing what my interpretation of a what a character is...

Here is my inspiration for you:

I chose to do a Mickey Mouse birthday card, which I plan on sending out to my Uncle because his birthday is this week. I chose to do Mickey Mouse because who doesn't love the mouse. I think the pose that Mickey is doing here expresses great excitement and is perfect for celebrating a birthday. This is also my first time trying to create the center step card. I followed a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers and it was super easy!!! Once you cut and create your folds everything else is just about decorating it. I think Mickey looks as is he is going to just jump right off the card. I am super excited about how this card turned out and I hope you are too.

I used these items to create my Mickey Mouse (center step) Birthday card:
  • Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge - Mickey and hands
  • Disney Mickey Paper Pad
  • Cardz TV Stamps - "Good Times" - sentiment inside and out
  • foam squares - behind Mickey
Now that you have seen my character go to Michelle-------
and check out her amazing creativity. There is a list of all the designers on the blog hop below.

Happy Hopping!!!!

At one of our family vacations, on our dress-up day my husband and I dressed up as Mickey and Minnie...and my husband of 70 didn't look anything like Mickey on your card...and to think Mickey is older than that. Welcome aboard as a new Design Team Member to Fantabulous Cricut.
