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.

Looking Forward to Sunny Days at Exploring Cricut

Welcome to my day at Exploring Cricut.  The weatherman, today, reported below normal temperatures to continue with heavy cloud coverage over the next few days.  I'm ready for some sunny days so I made this card.

I started out using the circle and scalloped circle idea for the background of a focus image but the combination of these 2 paper made me think of a sunflower and the card took off from there.  The sunflower circles came from cricut's Graphically Speaking cartridge.  The fence was cut from the last page of Paper Doll Dress Up.  The sun and bird both came from Create a Critter.  The bird was cut at 1 inch; isn't it cute.  The bow made of twine was the finishing touch.

Please stop by Exploring Cricut  each day for some great ideas from our design team.  Watch out for our challenges and please join us.

I will also be entering this in the Craft It Up Linky Partry at Craftin Desert Divas where the theme is 'anything goes.'
Have a sunny day.
