I got the idea for this card from Emma at My Creative Time. I used my Gypsy to weld two shapes together using the Lacey Labels cartridge. The flower and her hat are from Forever Young and her face, of course, is from Peachy Keen stamps, Cutey Pie. My husband surprised my on Thursday with the Cricut Imagine. I was stunned! I had hinted that I may have been interested in it, but I really wasn't sure I needed (LOL) it. Anyway, I came up to my craft room and a few minutes later, he was at the doorway holding this HUGE box. I immediately knew what it was because this isn't the first time he's done something like that. Isn't that sweet? I told him it wasn't the sweetest thing he's ever done, because he does SO many sweet things for me, but it was one of the biggest surprises he's ever given me. Needless to say, I've been having fun with it! I had some problems with it initially, but I'm hoping it's all worked out now. Anyway, that patterned paper is from the Imagine More cartridge. Instead of printing it on white paper, I used patterned paper as the base. I really love the look of the new patterned paper it made. I'm so thrilled I discovered doing this. I'm sure everyone's been doing this and I'm way behind. LOL. But, I love it and am really excited to try other subtle patterned paper as bases in the future! The sentiment is from Pink By Design. I used the Graduation set and cut off the rest of the sentiment which was not appropriate for every day life. But, I can still use it whenever I need it. Without further adieu, here is my card.
Here's a picture of me opening the box. Well, you'll have to trust that it's me. LOL
