Cricut Explore Air 2, and My new FAVORITE Card!!




Thank you for joining me!!
Y'all, I am sooo excited to show you this card! Reason being that sometimes you get to crafting and things don't look as you envision them, but since I received my Cricut Explore Air 2, I am so pleased!!
This machine takes ordinary paper and makes beautiful designs out of it!
On this card I used :
Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments.



To begin, 
I selected the images I wanted, sized them to the background of my card, and attached them to let my Cricut know where to write. The rest was easy peasy!

I also traced along the edge of the Flourish Icon with my Gelly Roll pen and added Viva Pearls to the centers of flowers. I also added Ranger Distress Ink to the edges of dies in Mermaid Lagoon. I fussy Cut around the Flower Decorative element and added it to the envelope for an extra decorative touch.

Paper: Recollections, and gems from stash. I hope you enjoy this and that you leave me a comment letting me know what you think!!
Be blessed!
Update: Please see the video on my previous post if you are interested in seeing how I made this and other cards.

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.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!



Hope Banner for October Breast Cancer Awareness

I made this banner for Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October using several Cricut cuts, embellishments, the Cuttlebug and the Stand and Salute cart for the ribbon. I'll be entering this project to Link Up for Pink.
