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

Holy Mackerel...he's 19!
My oldest nephew just turned 19. I had a card made for him that I just wasn’t loving. It really is a challenge making cards for guys! Then I saw it…the perfect card for him. It was the customer spotlight card in the May 18th issue of the Cricut Chirp Newsletter. I HAD to scrap lift it, and as the rule goes…give credit where credit is due. You see my nephew eats, sleeps and breathes fishing; making this card a perfect fit. Of course I changed it up a little and didn’t use some of the cartridges that Ms. Nooren Pierce used. I decided to use a real fishing lure dangling from the rod, instead of the age she used. I tried to get a more realistic look by using a silver shimmering ink pad I had (I hope you can see it in the pics). I thought it turned out super cute and he loved it, which is all that mattered.
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.
