Forever Young Birthday Card

Hi All,
    I'm back again! Today, I want to share a card that I made for a co-worker's b-day (Happy Birthday Di!).  I saw the card while surfing for ideas on Google Images. I hadn't played with my Cricut in awhile and I love that Forever Young cart, so I thought I would use it for this project.  My inspiration came from Billie over at .  This was a card Billie did back in August of 2012.  I totally love her layout and thought it would be perfect for Di's card.  I developed the inside myself.  I loved the paperline (another great Hobby Lobby find).  The gift card packaging was kind of large so, I couldn't go with the standard way of making a pocket.  I used one of Kathy Orta's ideas for creating a pocket that would tolerate some bulkiness.  I think the card turned out nice and it went really quick too!  Not a lot fluff but still very nice.   Well, here are a few pictures; I hope you enjoy them and feel inspired to break out any electronic cutting machine you haven't played with in awhile... I haven't entered any challenges in a bit; today I have a little extra time; so I'm on the challenge prowl.  Okay, I changed my mind, I now remember why I stopped entering challenges...It's just too much work!! I'll have to take my chances that folks will find my work on the net and come see, just like I do.  Have a great weekend everybody.

Blocks Card

Hey my favorite folks!
    It's been awhile but you know I can't leave you for too long.  Today, I want to share a card that was inspired by Papercrafter 45  and Lesia from Memas Crafts called a "Blocks Card".  The card looks complicated when you watch the video on You Tube but it really is super easy; you can even include a base (which I did not), to sit it on as a display.  I also chose to stand my card differently because I wanted to make it hold flowers.  This was a quick, simple and fun little card.   I hope you will be inspired to give it a try.  Until next time...
