Fantasy Land and a Simply Sunday Challenge

Hi Everyone!  This week the Simply Sunday challenge at Getting Cricky is all about FANTASY LAND.  What a fun challenge this is.  Sometimes it is a treat to just take a step out of reality and into the fantasy world.  I do this often.  HA HA! Let me explain.  I am a kindergarten teacher and read books to children several times a day.  We like to talk about the books in regard to fact and fiction .  And we often talk about could a fiction book we have read be a fantasy story or could it be true.  It is also fun when we act out the stories or use puppets to retell the stories.

Now, on to my card.  I actually had a hard time deciding what to do.  But when I came across this Cricut cut, I knew I had the beginning of an idea.

The card base is a cut from the WILD CARD cartridge.  The two mats are cut from GEORGE AND BASIC SHAPES.  And my little fantasy cut is from GIVE A HOOT.  Isn't it just an adorable cut!!  The papers are from K&Company and Glitz.  I added gems to the boat and the little owl and cat's faces.  The little heart says "adore".  And the sentiment, which I think is perfect for says "You float my boat"!  The sentiment is from the  K Andrew Designs stamp set, SPLASH-TASTIC SUMMER.
This stamp set is just so cute and so much fun!!  And it is also so versatile!  You will be amazed at all the year round projects you can use these stamps with.  

Now, I invite you to visit  the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky.  There you will see the  inspiration of the  fabulous design team.  Visit their blogs and leave them some love.  But most importantly, linkup your FANTASY LAND project!!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Have a great day and come back soon for a visit.
