A Little This...A Little That...

Hello There!

Feeling I needed to give something new a try. I used my cricut to make the frame and flower-soft to jazz up the pre-printed image.You know, if you had regular cards, (the ones you buy, gasp) you could customize some of those with flower-soft, then they would be home-made. Just a thought!

The frame was cut using Lacy Labels. That is the Walmart exclusive cartridge I used last week. I cut the frame at 4.75" in height (yellow piece) and the co-ordinating layer at the same size (green decorative). I needed to create an opening in the centre of the yellow. You have to use a gypsy or design studio to weld the two pieces together and then cut on the cricut.
I started with the hedgehog and used nut brown, sharmrock green and a spring mixture for the flowers.
I see I have a fleck of green in the hedgehogs hair. Wasn't really planned but maybe I'll leave it there.
Doesn't he look adorable...I just want to ruffle his hair.

 Gosh...maybe I need to get out more.

To jazz up the frame I added some brown pearls.
I've got a stash of that stuff so I figure I might as well use it.

I think I might try a few more cards/projects using my cricut for some of the elements.

Back to crafting.
