Hi Friends! Hope you all are staying warm...goodness it has been really cold here in these parts. Sure am ready for SPRING!! Hoping to work on a few spring related cards here in the next few weeks. I have some ideas. Today and next weeks post is all about "LUCK", I made a couple cards for St. Patrick's Day. Both cards i used the same papers and paper piecing behind a image cut. I used what I had really close on hand. I hope you enjoy this weeks card, and next weeks.

*working on cleaning up and organizing my craft work area today. Its just too cold for outside activities, so I'm busy trying to figure out where i want to place everything..hmm.

I really love the look of these style cards, not a lot of pieces to put together. Simple and clean.
Thanks for stopping...have a great weekend everyone!

Writing/Drawing with my Explore

Hi, Crafty Friends! Hope you all had a great weekend and week. I wanted to play with my pens using my explore. I had this idea in my head, I think it turned out kinda how I wanted it, but it will take some more practice. There is no cuts, only the card base. Hope you all enjoy!

I Used:
Cricut Explore
Cricut Pens:Blueberry, Geode, Sour Apple, Very Berry, Candy Corn
Cuts/Write: Clouds(P&F) Sun (CAC) Flower(GAH) Grass(PSbook) Hello(ACY) Line(free) Leaf(free from GF) Card base(AA)
4.5"x5" card
Darice texture CS White
Simple flat card

If you notice the cloud the blotch of blue ink, when the pen started it like slammed the pen down causing that blotch, then for some reason the pen didn't get the bigger flower all the way. It got the little one great, drew that one after the big one....hmm 
I will make some cards similar to this. Its simple, no glue, and it would mail great. I used a score line(free) changed it to write and that is what I used for the flower stems.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope this gives you some ideas to try and play with the pens in the explore. I will try and post every Thursday.

Cloud card: Dear Friend

Hello, Crafty Friends! Hope you all are having a great week. Crazy that in a couple days it will be Valentine's Day already. This year is scooting on by. I've been told by several "that once you have kids time goes by fast" boy were they right.  On to my cute card made in Design Space. I made this card for a Dear Friend of mine who is always there, we met in the crafting world..connected through Cricut...Another reason to love this machine, you can make great long lasting friends. She loaned me one of her Carts that I didn't own, and I wanted to make this cute card for her to Thank her when I sent the cart back. She loved it!! I linked up all my carts to DS so now I have more images to play with. I used the cloud card from Hello Kitty cart for my base.

I Used:
Design Space- Hello Kitty(own) Cloud card
Teardrop Font *it was Free when I used it, some say its $4.99 now, but when I checked its still free, Birthday Bash font
Cricut Pens - Candy Crystal, Sour Apple
White gel pen
Pop Dots * I popped up the front of card to the base
4"x3" card..I think this card was small, to give scale I have it propped up against a Essie nail polish bottle

Thanks for stopping. Hope you all have a fun Valentine's Day!
Hugs, Sheena

Circle V-Day card

Hi, Crafty Friends! Hope you all had a great weekend and are staying warm. Pretty cold here where I live. Temps are in the teens and below zero...eeek! I wanted to share my second quick Valentine's day card using the " I Love You" free image on Design Space. All images I used are Free, so anyone that can use Design Space can use these cuts.

When I made this card I could tell I was off my card making game a bit..hehe. I wanted to faux stitch and my little guy wasn't having it when I wanted to take my time, so I did a quick faux stitch and added some diamond stickles.
