Plantin' Schoolbook, Home Décor / Birthday card for boy!

I cannot believe my oldest son is 12!! This doesn't leave much room for cutesy little things anymore, so for his birthday I was in a crunch. How to make a card using the cricut and still have him like it? Well, I do work best under pressure and in about an hour (with many interruptions), I was able to come up with this card. It's called a tri-fold card, and the ladies at www.splitcoaststampers.com have a wonderful tutorial on it. The right paper can make all the difference! I used Plantin Schoolbook for the cityscape, My community for the clock (striking 12!!) and Home Décor for the star. He liked it, and I was happy :)

Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
