For my project I made Motocross decals (using the Cricut cartridge Dude!) for my husbands truck, since he Motocrosses in the Fall when the rain starts making the mountains perfect for a dirt bike ride!

Left side of truck back window-(I'll have to smooth out the air bubbles better on this side)

Right side of truck back window-(used the flip feature on this)

 Decal on the paper backing-looks prettier on the truck-

This vinyl came from, and is the outdoor vinyl. It's really high quality vinyl! The outdoor vinyl is great for decals like this, but can also be used for mailboxes, windows, outdoor signs, business info on magnetic sheets for cars, etc. I had no trouble cutting it at all!

I cut this dirt bike out at 4 1/2" using Dude! cartridge button 21, and my settings were Blade 6, Pressure 2, and Speed 1. If your mat isn't very sticky you can use blue painters tape to hold it down so it doesn't shift. The decal shown was also cut with the "flip" button on. My husband had me alter (cut out areas) of the decal so that there were no gold showing under the bike riders chest and handlebars. Why? I don't know, but since it was for his truck I went for it with a craft knife. Now his friends want some!

I am also offering Blog Candy, shown here-

This is a Graphic 45 prize package from Secret Garden Collection. The pad is 8" x 8", with  24 Gorgeous double sided papers. The packages contain 2 different sheets of coordination elements for card making or scrapbooking. All you have to do is leave a comment.  You don't have to be a follower if you don't want to-but followers (new or old) will get two entries in the drawing if they leave a comment!

You've made it to the end of the FCCB Crawl. Check back with the Design Team everyday, as more projects & videos will be added daily.  Make sure you've visited all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!
