Joannas Card

London to Brighton Bike ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation

A neighbour of mine is cycling for the 1st time in the London to Brighton Bike ride this weekend. She is trying to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and has been practising for many weeks despite having 2 young children. Having sponsored her, I thought she might like this little card to say "Good Luck and that I was thinking of her during her ride".

I cut out the base card using Accent Essentials and used CDS to weld the two shapes together. I then layered the base card with pink gingham paper by Craft Creations. The pink gingham is my favourite paper........please Lynn could you get some more in for me at Flutterby's!! I then layered the card with green Bazzill Bling cardstock which I put through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. Using the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge I cut out this gorgeous bike with various bits of scrap Bazzill card. I computer generated the greeting and layered it on a scallop circle. Some white glittered flowers were punched out and Kaiser gems were adhered to the centre.

A fun card that could also be used for a child or grandchild who might receive their 1st bike for a birthday (what do you think Lynn!)

Nicky is OK!!

Hi Everybody. Just wanted to let you all know that Nicky is OK - a bit sore, but that is to be expected.

I will keep you all up to date as time progresses.

Fathers Day!!

Father's Day Card!!

I used the gorgeous Three Bugs in a Rug cardstock called Snips and Snails available at Flutterby Crafts. I simple love this paper as it is double sided, perfect for boys and great quality. The card was sooooo simple. I cut a star with my Cricut machine using George at 4 1/2" in the blue spotty paper and highlighted it with white pen. A small white circle was cut out and the text was computer generated which was adhered with foam pads. I then cut out a small green circle with Bazzill Bling card to co ordinate with the background paper. A glittered blue star was then cut out using the George cartridge again and layered onto foam pads with a blue button placed in the centre.

I thought this card would be suitable for Father's Day or a Dad's birthday.

I would love to see your creations using the Cricut machine. Just send an e-mail to Lynn or Tracy with a photo of your card or, take your card into the shop and I am sure they would like to add it to the site for us all to see.

Look forward to seeing some of your Cricut creations.
