Thanks card

Hi Everyone!! Long time since I have been on here. Been so busy with little man, and other things going on. Its hard to find time to sit and make a card. I'm glad I got to make one today. I made this for a dear friend. I used the "Free, Make It Now" on the Cricut Design Space. I never done that before and saw this card and really like the design, and I needed a "Thanks" card. I changed it, by doing my own colors. They had pinks picked, but I wanted something bright and summer like. It did take a bit to cut cause all the detail. Also I dunno if it's just mine or anyone else's but when it scores my cards to fold later it don't score right in the middle, its kinda off, so I have to do a quick scoring of my own to try and fix it. I hope you enjoy my fun summer card. Sorry the lighting is kinda off today, it's gloomy here (expecting more storms). The yellow is BRIGHT yellow. In the full card pic it looks much darker.

I Used:
Cricut DS: Make It Now card (free)
The Paper Studio PP: Four Seasons
Wausau CS
Crayola Fine point Markers: Black
MS: Black marker for stitching 
A2 card

Thanks for stopping in! Hope you all are doing well.
Hugs, Sheena

MOM- Mother's Day card

Hi Everyone!! Sorry I haven't had a post the past few weeks, I have just been busy and not really having the creative juices flowing. Every time I try to even use the Cricut Design Space App I don't ever come up with ideas  that I really like and would cut. Anyways, I needed a card for my Mom, from me and my sister. It needed to be pretty, but not a lot of detail since I will be mailing it to her. She don't live near me, and me and my sis always go in on a gift and card. This year my sis bought the gift, and I made the card. I know my mom will love this card.

I Used:
Cricut Explore: The images are basic searches like, Circle, Oval, Rectangle, and Mom. I stretched the Blue circle to make it an oval. I love Design Space, being able to do that.
Pebbles PP- Garden Party
Darice CS
White Gel pen
SU pop dots
A2 card

I hope to get some good card making mojo back, I miss playing with my cricut and all my paper. I keep buying the smaller paper packs like 6x6 and 5.5x 8.5 packs. I don't seem to waste as much. Just need to make more projects so I can use them. Thanks for stopping in, hopefully it won't be such a long break next time. 
Have a Great Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mom's out there.
Hugs, Sheena

Birthday Shaker

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share my Birthday shaker card with y'all. I made this for my niece. I knew she would love something like a shaker card. She likes anything that has sparkle, and not really kiddie. She turned 10. Her birthday was on Easter. Enjoy!

Cricut Explore: Free- Octagon, Free- Phrase
American Crafts PP- My Girl
CTMH Stamps- Dots
Craft Plastic
Doodlebug Sequins
Filler beads
A2 card
*since there was so many tiny areas on this card I made several layers of the same layout, glued them all together to give me thickness for the shaker. 

Thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Sheena
