When I started working on a project for this hop, I discovered while I own several Disney Cricut carts, I do NOT own a Mickey one.  Frankly, I am just not a huge Disney person.  I visited Disney World many times as a child but have never taken my son...and he doesn't really want to go.  Although my hubby says when the Star Wars park opens we are visiting!  I will only agree if we can go to the Harry Potter park.  

After discovering I had no Mickey cart, I pulled out the Licensed Character section of my scraprack which has a Disney section.  I found all kinds of good stickers.  I guess I thought I would use them on a scrapbook someday but they worked pretty well for my cards.  In fact after I made the landscape cards, I was lovin' Mickey and kept on going with some traditional Mickey colored cards.

Ingredients for the landscape cards:
Disney stickers
Poppy Stamps Stitched Hills Dies
Avery Elle Pierced Clouds Dies
Crafter's Companion Scenic Pines Die (Goofy Card)
misc papers including Graphic 45, Creative Memories, Bazzill, Coordinations, vellum

I guess I was hurrying...this last card isn't very straight.  Rest assure I will fix it before sending it out.  Wouldn't these be good to send to Children's Hospital?  I think that is what I will do!

Disney stickers
Our Daily Bread Designs Stitched Circles
Queen & Co bling
misc papers including DCWV & Creative Memories
Quick Quotes Midnight Confessions chalking ink

 Up next is Sandy!!
