Happy 105th Birthday!!

The project that I have to share is a card that I made for the mother of a family friend who is getting ready to celebrate her 105th birthday this week. I have always wanted to make a card with 3D flowers so I used a cartridge that I already have but just haven't used for a while....I used 50 States...layered the flowers and added a pearl in the middle for a finished touch.  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!

Recipe for this project:
- Flowers from 50 States Cricut Cartridge cut at 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 & 4.5
- 'Happy Birthday' from Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge cut at 3
- '105" & 'Ruth' from Designer's Calendar Cricut Cartridge cut at 1
- Stampendous Stamp - Happy Messages - 'Happy Birthday', inside the card
- iRock pearl jewel
- Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot

Challenge Me Monday - #126 Back to School Cricut Crawl

It feels like it has been a life time since I have posted anything or even had the chance to scrapbook/craft!  Between my job keeping me busy, family visiting, some serious health issues with a dear friend & returning from a vacation in Cancun, Mexico with my husband....there hasn't been much when I had a night with one of my best friends to hang out and scrapbook, I jumped on the chance and was able to get several things completed.  Have you been hopping along with Cricut Crawl?  If you haven't, make you way over to Fantabulous Cricut and follow the links to all the design team members links for the Crawl. 

 #126 - Back to School Cricut Crawl - Make a project using some type of School Supplies (ex. pencils, crayons, paper, ruler, ect).
The project that I created for the Back to School Cricut Crawl is 2 pages that are going into a book I made and gave to a good friend of mine, who's son just started kindergarten.  She has commented several times about how she likes the projects that I have made but doesn't scrapbook herself....she was so excited and loves the book....even as asked if I am going to make more pages for her to put into the book as well as if she gives me the pictures if I would put the entire book together for her.  I guess I have a little one in kindergarten now.... :)  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
