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.

Home Sweet Home for Shopping Our Stash

Here I am again with another challenge.  It's so nice to have time to do this again.
Here is my entry for the Home Sweet Home challenge.
I 've always liked the look of window cards and wanted to try one.  My cricut Spring Cottage cartridge had the window element.  I found the shrubs and window box in the Freshly Picked cartridge.  
I hadn't been making much use of my embossing folders so I pulled out the worn brick wall and thought the dotted Swiss pattern would make good curtains.  This was a great card for using scraps.
I hope you like it; I think it implies a cozy home.

Please go to Shopping Our Stash to see the designer's ideas and other entries.

Have a great day!

Sympathy-Challenge at Fantabulous Cricut

Hello, again.

The current challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is "Sympathy".

The card I made used the Cricut New Testament cartridge for the cross and the scalloped oval from the cricut cartridge Straight from the Nest. .
This is so easy to put together and looks so elegant with the right papers.  I used silver stickles to outline the inner oval.  The sentiment was part of a collection of phrases but I can't find the package.

Don't forget to visit Fantabulous Cricut to see the designers' examples and the other entries in this challenge.
Have a great day!
