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.

My Day at Exploring Cricut and my blog hop winner

Hello everyone.  I have so many great Cricut cartridges that I don't really need any more but when I see them at a great price, I can't resist.  One of my newest purchases is the Country Life cartridge.  I thought the pitcher of flowers would be a great focus for a card so I tried it out in 2 versions.  On the first one I used the George and Basic Shapes cartridge for the word.

This card goes together quickly and makes a lovely card for many sentiments. I'll be making more of these.
(Sorry for the delay.  Trying a new prescription was disastrous and had me sick for several days so I'm a little late with posting the winner)

Now, for the winner of my blog candy from the Exploring Cricut Mother's Day Blog Hop.  My winner is:  Mary Ann (#14)

Please contact me at with your full address info. so I can get the stamps and embossing folder in the mail to you.

Please visit Exploring Cricut each day to see your daily dose of inspiration from our design team.
Thanks for stopping by. 
Happy creating.
Rae Ann
