Thinking of You

I ordered the Creative Cards cartridge from ProvoCraft a few months ago and I am just beginning to start playing with it. The is the second card I have made using this cartridge and I can certainly see myself using this cartridge as a "Go To" to make a beautiful, yet quick card.  The cartridge includes card bases, layers, phrases...everything!  I cut this card at 5.5 inches and it will cut two cards on a 12 by 12 sheet of cardstock.  The layers were easy to cut and assemble and this card came together in less than ten minutes, including the liner for the inside of the card.  I have not tried to cut the envelopes yet.  I definitely recommend this cartridge to anyone who still has decided to use their Cricut and not "crossed over" to the Cameo side of crafting.

Have a great day!

Happy Thursday!  Just wanted to take a minute to let you know that we will be having a BRAND NEW Challenge tomorrow at Cardz TV!

Now isn't this just the cutest card?  I love it!  I had SO MUCH FUN making it using my scraps!  I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card, but the sentiment says "You have great taste!"  Isn't that hilarious?

The sentiment stamps are from  Cardztv "FAQ's" and "Foodie Punnies" stamp much fun!  You can see all of the great stamp sets Mary has for sale HERE.
