Welcome to Cooking With Cricut’s very special SURPRISE “Thank You” Blog Hop. Why is it so special? We are celebrating  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. It has been a great pleasure to serve on this design team and I will miss everyone in the future. 

So this is our SURPRISE “Thank You” tribute to our beloved Melin! We had her fooled the whole time and I hope this hop helps her realized how special she is in the lives she has touched.  

If you came from our lovely Hattie's blog, 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!!

I love patterned paper and I love my Art Philosophy cart so I decided to create this fabulous card using those two things I love.  The card was cut at 5 1/2 and then I cut everything else at 5.  The tag is from My Craft Spot-Teeny Tags and the flower I also made from the cart. 

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 Suzanne blog as she’s the next stop on this party train!
