A Very Pink Retirement Card

Alright crafty peeps, today's card is almost Cricut free! Yeah, I know, I do love my Cricut (because I spend a lot of money on carts!) so I use it a lot. I was asked to make a retirement card for someone who loves pink and is a breast cancer survivor. So this is what I came up with:

The polka dot paper is from Pinecone Press, the center paper is from DCWV's Nanna's Nursery collection, and the pink triangle were from scrap pile (I think it's from JoAnn's). The ribbons are from the Stand And Salute cart, but that's the only Cricut cut I used. I had a bunch of Prima flowers in my stash (I live really close to the Prima Warehouse!!) This one is pretty simple.

Happy Crafting!

I'm baaaaack! With a new card

Okay, so I have been gone a LONG time, I know. But I had some serious family issues to take care of. Still kind of working them, but hey life goes on! So I finally started crafting again. Boy my craft room missed me. Anyway, I busted out the Cricut for this 40th Birthday card! I have this birthday paper stack from Me and My Big Ideas that has been sitting around forever, and I decided to use it!

I busted out my Cricut for a couple of cuts. One of my favorite cartridges is Winter Woodlands which is what I used for the circle and the scalloped circle. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the numbers. I always seem to go back to that cart! The font is just so perfect. I used a paper punch from Martha Stewart and some twine from The Twinery to finish it off. 

Happy Crafting!
