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.

Be My Valentine Challenge at Exploring Cricut

Welcome.  Come join our challenge at  Exploring Cricut.  Make a card, layout, or any paper craft with the theme "Be My Valentine".  Here's my contribution as a design team member.

This is an easel card.  I'm in love with this little Queen of Hearts from Teddy Bear Parade.  I used the Picturesque cartridge for the decorative corners and a circle from the same cartridge for the message backing.  By accident, I found a description of how to write words in a circle on Microsoft Word - it's so easy and I never knew you could do it.  Click here for instructions.
On the circle I added a small, gathered piece of toulle,(if that's how you spell it, LOL) a glitter sticker heart, and 2 stickpins that I made.  Overall, I had a lot of fun with this.

Have some fun of your own and enter it in the challenge at Exploring Cricut .  I looking forward to seeing you there.
