New Calling Cards & Giveaway(s)??

When I first joined the Cricut Circle it was right before the CHA in Chicago last July and they told us to make calling cards. The cards are supposed to be 3 x 3 inches and include your basic contact information. At the meet-up in July they had us submit a card and they did a large drawing for prizes. You also are encouraged to trade your cards with others as a way to get to know each other. 

My first calling cards were all over the place. I just went into my scrap bin and created a bunch of different looking cards with no common theme or plan.I just wanted to have a set to share. I really only shared a few with others, mostly because I was so overwhelmed with the booths and excitement at CHA.

Now I am making my second set of calling cards for a swap that was on the message board. I wanted to have a common theme for these cards, but knew that I need a little variety. I decided all my cards would have the same basic layout: My initials and a ticket with drama masks below that. than I decided that they had to have polka dots. After than I picked out my colors and instead of going and buying more paper (I have way to much as is) I picked several different colors to make the cards out of. I am super pleased with how they turned out and I look forward to sending them off for the swap. I am really looking forward to getting my stack in the mail this morning. 
Font is Billionaire, Ticket is from Summer Vacation and the Drama masks are from Locker Talk.
Now lets talk Giveaways! I waited a long long time to get to 75 followers and last week I got there. To celebrate I am giving away a set of Cricut Markers. You do not have to be a follower to win (bit it would be nice.) Just leave a comment on the post that discusses the giveaway: HERE.
Now as chance would happen I am actually getting very close to 100 followers and as you may be able to imagine I am very excited about that as well. I am thinking another giveaway for my 100th follower will have to come soon. Does anyone out there like Kaiser Craft?? More soon. Thanks for being a follower and as always I love reading all my comments.
