You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Exploring Cricut Challenge - Cricut Choice

Exploring Cricut has a great challenge this week.  The challenge requires at least 1 embellishment, 2 patterned papers, and 3 cricut cuts.
Since I became a member of the Exploring Cricut Design Team I've tried to go beyond my comfort zone into types of projects I don't usually do.  This challenge is perfect for a decoration for my apartment door.  I photographed it on a closet door because I never get good quality pictures in the hallway.  The doors are metal; I found magnet hooks that work well.

The 3 cricut cuts are the Queen and King of Hearts from Teddy Bear Parade and the banners from the Phrases cartridge.  The 2 patterned papers are a pink and light green background paper for the Queen and King and the pinkish-red patterned paper on the center triangle.  That pinkish-red pattern is also used in the Queen's skirt and crown and the King's jacket and crown.  The embellishments are the red glittered hearts on the center triangle.  I stamped Happy Valentine's Day with a $1 stamp from Michael's onto white paper I cut for it.
Check out what the other members of the Design Team did and join us in the challenge at Exploring Cricut.

I am also entering this is in DL.ART Thankful Thursday - Red or Pink and
In The Pink - Distressed ( I used distress ink to edge the clothing so the patterned paper would stand out better.)

Happy Creating.
Rae Ann
