A spot for my Cricut creations, and whatever else :) I decide to post.

Father's Day Card - UPDATED
**I AM SO EXCITED! THIS CARD WAS HIGHLIGHTED IN THE CRICUT CHIRP NEWSLETTER ON JUNE 15, 2010 (VOL. 212)!!**
My father is an architect and so I wanted to try one of those unusual cards and opted to go with the Tri-shutter card. Thanks to this website I got the needed instructions to make it. I really like the way it turned out and am planning to utilize their instructions to attempt some of the other cards featured in the near future.
For this project I used:
Cricut Cartridges: Create a Critter (owl), Calligraphy Collection (Happy Fathers Day), Beyond Birthdays (Dad), and Wall Décor and More (mushroom)
Paper: Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, MME Magnolia, and DCWV Rock Star.
I hope he likes the card. I decided that I wanted it to be simply say Happy Father’s Day and chose not to put a sentiment in the card. I mean, really, most men don’t care for sappy sentiments, right? I know my dad doesn’t. What he will know is what the mushroom means…Dad’s of girls are like mushrooms, they are kept in the dark and fed a bunch of B-S, hahahaha!
First and foremost I am a Christian. I love my husband and 2 dogs. I enjoy scrapbooking (well, more so paper crafting)and SCUBA diving and I am entering the world of photography. I like sharing my so called creativity with family and friends and what better way to do it, than on a blog. I hope you like all you see on either of my blogs.
