This is my first official Design Team post for My Cricut Craft Room! How exciting!  I chose to make a boy card for Project Sunshine and Smiles. It is a wonderful project that Erica has put together to send happy and get-well cards to children in hospitals. It just warmed my heart to be able to do this.

So here it is....
He is just a happy little robot jumping off the card to say hello!
I decided not to make a get-well card, and just make a happy card. (I know that if I was in the hospital for long periods of time, I would want something to make me smile..and not remind me that I am sick.) I also wanted to make something that stood up so it could be placed somewhere and be seen..and to make him smile when he sees it. So I opted for an Easel Card and used the Robotz Cricut cartridge for the robot and gears.

 I used textured metallic paper to make it look like a little metal robot with matching gears surrounding him.
                                And I popped them with dimensionals to hold the card up and open for display.

I hope he makes a lil guy smile when he is received!

Thanks for looking at my project, to see more fantastic projects be sure to visit http:/
