A Simple Best Wishes Card

Our attorney at our office is leaving so my co-workers and I decided to throw a surprise party for her. I thought I would whip together a card for her wishing her the best of luck at her new job. I think it turned out quite nice. I used the best wishes from the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge and the card base I cut from the Sophie Cartridge I won on the Cricut Craft Room Challenge last month. I really LOVE this cartridge. I cannot thank the ladies over there enough for offering it as a prize :)

Now to the photos!!

The first time I made the "Best Wishes" part it was a little big so I used it to decorate the corners.

I left the inside black so everyone could sign and leave their own message. I sponge painted the front of the paper and where the cut outs were so when you opened it you would have tiny flowers. I embellished them with bling in the middle.

Up close photo :)
Thanks for looking and have a great Leap Day!

Long Time No Post...

So I have to admit. Life has been crazy and this whole blog thing got put on the back burner for awhile. My crafting has not stopped at all though so I will post some lovely things I have made since my last post :)

A just because card that I thought came out lovely.

A simple Happy Birthday card with a funky envelope to match :)

I just love this little monkey!

My first attempt at the Batman Cartridge. Seriously rough need to make these bad boys bigger next time!

I love the bat cut outs on the handle.

Nick's Valentine that I absolutely love. Made with the Sophie cartridge I won in the Cricut Craft Room Challenge. One of the best cards I have made.

My first attempt at some vinyl on canvas. I did some melty crayon art and came out with this lovely piece.

I promise to do better on updating. I am trying to get some of my St. Patty's Day and Easter cards going this month and cannot wait to share with you all :) Happy Crafting!
