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.

A Sweet Thank You

Back again.

This card is being entered in the Paper Play Sketches Challenge.

The strawberry was cut at 2 1/2 inches from the Cricut Preserves cartridge; the word "sweet" came from the Summer Celebrations cartridge (1").

Here's the sketch:

This is another of their sketch ideas that I really like.

Don't forget to visit the Paper Play Sketches blog to see all the inspiration there.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Creating!

Summer Fun


I have a card, today, that will be entered in 3 challenges.

This surfer dude was cut from Cricut's Fun in the Sun Cartridge.  I think I cut it at 3 1/4".

I am entering in the following challenges:
Bitten by the Bug 2 - Summer Fun
Shopping our Stash - Dude
Die Cuttin Divas - Sketch
     The cut itself was perfect for the sketch.

As always, go to these blogs to appreciate the efforts of design team and challenge participants.  Take time to leave comments, too.  They are always appreciated.
Have a great day.
Happy Creating!

Christmas in July

Good day, everyone.

Today I have a card for 3 challenges.  For some reason I was thinking of a gingerbread house and decided to go for it.
Although I have the gingerbread lite cartridge I decided to use the Cricut Create a Critter 2 gingerbread house instead.  Both the house and gingerbread man were cut at 2 1/4".  I used clear glitter glue to add sparkle to the bowtie and to add 'sugar' to the gumdrops.

The 'happy holidays' stamp and the 'season's greetings' were from a bunch of little stamps my sister gave me when she retired from teaching.  I'm glad I looked through my stash.

The three challenges are:
Paper Play Sketches - Color challenge Yellow, Chocolate, and a deep green;
Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash - You're So Sweet

As always, make sure you visit these blogs to see the design team's efforts as well as the work of those entering the challenges.  It's a great way to get inspiration.
Have a great day.
Happy Creating!
