Simpatico: adjective

 being on the same wavelength, agreeable, likable

I have 2 challenges in one card today. One uses the Cricut with a New Years theme and the other using maps. Instantly I knew how I was going to put the 2 together...just like peanut butter and was simpatico!

One challenge comes from CARDZ TV, to use your Cricut to design a  Happy New Years card. Now I only gave out 2 New Years cards this year ( I admit, I don't do many of them ) but I want to send a card to a friend of mine with directions to get to my place so I altered the "new" for "snow" as we both love the snow. Which also means I get to use my latest cartridge, paper Trimmings for the snowman! See how things are flowing along here? ...peanut butter

Now lets keep this theme going, shall we? Moxie Fab is having a challenge to use maps as part of your design. Since my friend will be traveling over from Tennessee, it was perfect to add a Tennessee map to the card and I happen to have one still in my car from when I lived over there.... who says it doesn't pay to not clean out your car? ...jelly

Reminisce, Snowman Collage
stickles, Diamond Dust and X-Mas red
Helmars Liquid Scrapdots and Gemstone Adhesive
Jolee's rhinestone
Dymo Label Maker
map from in between seats of car ;0

and just to put a smile on your face, watch this video....I really thought the security guard was going to smash the banana...too funny!

I apologize to everyone who now will be humming the peanut butter and jelly song all day ;)

Super cute and clever use of the map to combine 2 challenges... well done! Kept me reading your posts and each one made me smile so I had to become a follower... even though I have the PB&J song stuck in my head....Thanks for playing along with us at CCC!

Your card is so cute! Good luck in the challenges.
And, that video was taken at a Rays game here. I have gone to lots of games, and there are some crazy things that go on! One of the guys on the grounds crew that smooths the clay between innings drops his rake (or whatever it is called) and dances too!

Ahhhh I am humming the song now!! Most likely will be all day, but that snowman is just too adorable so it's quite alright. =)

Oh my gosh, I laughed so hard at your video! I can't wait to show it to my little one! He will love it and more than likely be dancing and singing this all night!

I love your card!!! He sure puts a smile on your face!

You have done better than myself! I have not made nor sent New Year's card! Lucky to the one that received yours!
