This week Kristal at Getting Cricky really wrote an inspiring blog post to accompany her Simply Sunday challenge. If you are not a follower of hers you should head over and check it out. Kristal always inspires me to not only be a better crafter but also, and much more importantly, to be a better person.
I am still trying to get the hang of doing some simpler cards. I am just now getting to the point where I have enough confidence to send a card to someone that I do not know i.e. shareacard etc. I get so caught up in making something elaborate that I either only do one or often none at all. So really trying to pay attention to others work and try some things that would make my cards a bit simpler to make but also to convey that they were made with love.
This week the challenge was to use pen somewhere on the project. That is an easy one for me as I rarely make a card without using the pens in my cricut. I have seen cards where they mounted two different papers on a card and made it work so that was the technique I wanted to use. So here is what I came up with.
The papers are from the first smaller paper pad I have ever bought. I really like having these smaller pads so thinking that I will end up with some more in the near future.
Paper from Martha Stewart mat pad brights
The sentiment was drawn on with my Cricut using Amy Chomas gel pens and MTC
The font is brush script mt
The butterflies I bought yesterday at Hobby Lobby on sale so I knew they MUST go on my next card. They are Paper Studio bubble- a- bilities.
The ribbon is also from Hobby Lobby.
