Bon Voyage Card

I made this card for a co-worker.  I used the Summer Vacation Cricut cart for the plane and the suitcase.  I pieced paper together for the runway.  The medallion like cut in the background is from Storybook. I think the words are from Wild Card or Lyrical Letters and the border at the bottom is from the new Martha Stewart All Occassions Cartridge. I wanted the card to feel serene and tropical.  I hope you like it.

Martha Stewart Cricut

Sorry I seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth.  I didn't.  I have been making cards and letting them leave my presence without photos.  I consider those one of a kind, never to be copied cards (can't I dream).  One day someone will show me one of them and I'll be like, wow, I forgot I even made that.  Well yesterday I got my new Cricut cartridges yeah.  I think the MS cartridges are great and I think that since I have a couple I'll never need another cartridge again.  Now all of the cartridge money will go directly to savings (I can hope can't I).  Well I hope you will enjoy the following card and I plan to make more of them really soon.  The paper was from a K & Company stack and the little bling butterfly was from the Michael's dollar section.

I only cut out the welded thank you shadow.  I used it as the primary image.  The regular thank you wasn't welded and I was feeling lazy.

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a blessed day.

For Future Generations

If any of you crafters out there who make and post videos to You Tube ever wonder how your cards can change the world I can tell you how.  My seven year old daughter Alicia loves you all (Momo with Made by Momo, Mary with Cricut Cardz TV, Christina from Creations with Christina, Robyn The Pink Stamper, and many more talented crafters).  She and her sister are constantly over my shoulder when I watch your videos.  So much so that they sound like they need to make their own video series.  Alicia was explaining how she was going to add the glossy blue glue to make Spongebob look like he was in actual water.  As you see she likes flowers and bows as well.  I hope this card brightens your day as much as it brightened mine.

It is because of your example that she got all of the ideas for her additions (the water bubbles, the hand cut flowers, and the ribbon---of course).  I helped her cut out Spongebob with the Cricut Markers.  It is an excellent alternative to trying to cut out the tiny piece and put him together.  We used the markers on white textured cardstock.

And here is one of my cards that I made for a young lady's graduation.

Hope you all are having a blessed day.
