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.

Mother's Day Challenge at Exploring Cricut and More

Welcome!  This week's challenge is to create a card, layout, or paper project with a Mother's Day theme.  Include at least one ribbon.

For this card I used Cricut''s Suburbia cartridge for the silhouette and the Cindy Loo Cartridge for the curly decorations.  I had cut out an oval for another project using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge and this piece was left, so I used it.  Some glitter gle accents the oval and fills the holes in the edging.  My ribbon is the little bow.
The stamp is part of a set called 'Greeings Galore" which I purchased from Impression Obsession.
I don't recall the brand of edger this is; I cut it too wide so the left-over pink strip broke it up and added just the right visual balance.

Please join our challenge with your Mother's Day creations at Exploring Cricut and More.  We love to see your ideas.  And, drop by everyday for samples from our design team.

Thanks fo atopping by.  Happy Creating.
