Paper Flower

I learned how to make this flower from Julie's tutorial. The flower is not hard to make, but it took me FOREVER to put this card together because I wasn't copying someone else's card.

I cut the frame for the sentiment using Sure Cuts A Lot software and my Cricut. I didn't create the frame svg and I feel badly that I didn't keep the name of the person or the website that I got it from. If someone recognizes it, please let me know and I'll give them credit. The leaves are also cut using the SCAL software and my Cricut. I created that svg from the picture in the Stampin' Up catalogue. I used my Cricut with the Mini Monogram cartridge to cut out the scalloped circles for the flower. I could have used SCAL, but the cartridge was in my Cricut so why not use it!

Hoppy Birthday

Oh my, it has been a loooooong time since I've posted. I've made a few cards in the last two months, but haven't yet posted them. My laptop died about a month ago which has really messed me up. I had hopes of getting it back up and running but that doesn't look like it is possible so now I'm in the process of loading my backup of programs and documents on to our desktop... what a pain.

I made this card for my nephew who will be 10 next week. I used Aimes's card for inspiration. The inside is stamped with the sentiment "Hoppy Birthday". I think he'll find it cute.
