Wishing You Well

I made this card for a student who has mono. She will be out of school for 2 weeks, and the class wanted to send her a card. Good opportunity to make a get well soon card for me. I totally scraplifted this idea from DazyCutr on the Cricut Forum in the Paper Pups section. I stamped my paper to create my own pattered paper. I cut the flowers, bread tag, and water can from from Walk in My Garden. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the swiss dots. I inked the edges of the flowers and the paint can. This is the wet pup in Paper Pups. I need to get busy on an anniversary card for my brother and his wife. Can't wait to see what happens with that. TFL

Bee happy

I was so excited to finally receive 4 cartridges that I had ordered. I purchased Walk in My Garden, Storybook, Opposites Attract, and Doodlebug. I was so happy to get these items I decided to make a card with the cartridges before I went to bed. I did try to use Mojo Monday to inspire me. I had a great time and working on the card made a nice closure for the day.

My Brother: The Working Machine

My brother, Adam, is a PR Rep. We had an opportunity to spend some time together at a family wedding where I realized he is a work-a-maniac. He is always so busy. I wanted to remind him it is okay to relax - it would be good for his heart.

I used my Paperpups Cricut Cartridge for the cover.

Learning the Ropes

This card is one of my first attempts at using ribbon, watercolor pencils, stamping, and the Cricut Design Studio weld feature.
