Happy Spring Finally!

I'm so happy winter seems to have finally let go and that the daffodils are up and the blossoms are on the trees!

I saw this post on the Close to My Heart blog and I just had to do my version of it!

The "Happy" and "Spring" are from the February Stamp of the Month (retired), stamped in Memento Black ink.  The daffodil is from Flower Market and the tag is from Artistry.  I used White Daisy, Sweet Leaf, Canary and Glacier cardstock and some miscellaneous yellow cardstock.  Propped up the flower and the sentiment with 3D Foam Tape.

I've linked the Design Space file here for the Cricut Explore.  You do need to own both of the cartridges to use the file.  (Hopefully this works for you, haven't done that before!)

Have a great day and enjoy some Spring!

Adore You Birthday

Hello, today's card is a birthday card using the Adore You set that was January's Stamp of the Month - hope you didn't miss out!

A special friend was having a special birthday recently so this is what I came up with - hope she likes it!  The covered up bit has her name personalized on the card using Etched Alphabet on a banner edged with the Gold Shimmer Brush. 'Happy Birthday' was cut out using our Thin Cuts - Happy Birthday and our Gold Glitter Paper.  I believe it was Fern cardstock I used for the background but forgot to write that down.

Have a great day!

Be My Valentine

Hi, today's card is using the cut file from the wonderful Melody Lane.  I also used our Silver Shimmer Trim underneath the cut hearts and our Red Glitter Paper with the Thin Cut Hearts set.  The white layer was distressed with both Cranberry ink and Cocoa ink and then popped up with our 3D Foam Tape.  I also used the Crayola Fine Line Markers in my Cricut Explore to do the wording and the hearts.

All in all, pretty happy with how this turned out.

Have a wonderful day!
