Happy Tuesday Everyone ~ Hope you are all having a Wonderful Day

Today I needed to make a get well card for a dear friend who is going through a rough patch with his health.  I’m sure that he is receiving alot of cards with your typical message inside.  I on the other hand wanted to make him a handmade get well card to definitely put a smile on his face, so I decided to make a Get Whale Soon Card.

I cut the whale with my Cricut Expression machine using the Life’s A Beach Cricut cartridge, along with the border of waves.

Then I used my Cricut Gypsy for the inside message using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the font and the welding function to attach the letters together.

I had to give this card some “bling” so I used Baby Blue Stickles to add to the waves, and also made some polka dots on the letters with my Zig writer marker.

I hope that this card is what the doctor ordered to put a smile on his face.  Hope you like it too!

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!

This year I wanted to make our Mother’s Day cards using my Cricut Expression machine.  I recently purchased the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge and really took a look at all the great images that were on  this cartridge.  I can see many fun Cricut card ideas coming from this one cartridge.

The bicycle built for two would be perfect.  Since the cards are from my husband and myself this would work out great.  I filled the basket with some flowers from the Walk In My Garden Cricut cartridge, along with a small Prima flower with a rhinestone in the middle.  For the center of the wheels I used a flower punch and added a rhinestone again for that added bling.   I wanted to put two people on the bicycle seats, so again from the Sweethearts cartridge there is an  image of the couple sitting at the cafe table would work, since they were sitting on a chair and now would be on the seat of this bicycle.  All I needed to do was snip there hands apart.  This Sweethearts cartridge is really fun!  I can’t wait to make more cricut cards with it.

When I was done with these cards they looked adorable, and with our own saying inside that I printed with my computer would really make our Moms happy.

When I showed them to my husband, he thought they were cute but he had an idea.  To cut our faces out of a picture and put them on the bodies of the couple.  During Christmas you see that they have “elf yourself” on the computer, well we just did that on our card.  What a great cricut card idea that was.  Hope you enjoy the card, I had so much fun making them.

Wishing our Moms a Fantastic Mother’s Day, because they only deserve the Best!
