My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 187 The Olympics Are Coming

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins a new and fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! For Ch. 187 The Olympics Are Coming, our design team sister Sarah asked us to create a card or project with a sports theme. My grandson has an upcoming birthday and he loves playing baseball. Now I have his card made!
Card measures 5" x 5" cut from the lighter blue shade paper. I chose to use a red, white, and blue color theme. 

The image is from Cuttable Designs. It was one of the free images awhile back! Thank you Cuttable Designs for the images! I cut the design using my Cricut at 4.75" x 4.75" and layered it on the white paper. This will be a great image to use on a T-Shirt too!

Cricut Cartridges used for the inside of the card
Using Insert Shape in Cricut Design Space, I cut the dark blue paper at 4.5" x 4".
Cricut Craft Room Basics - Happy Birthday.
Baseball - All Star is cut 4.1" w x 1.13" h.
Life's A Party - Baseball is cut 1.25".

My Sheri Crafts - Ch.186 Just a Chillin'

Welcome to Glenda's Cards

It is time again for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! It is my time to choose the theme. We have been having hot weather in my area for the last few weeks, even worse, the humidity is so high. 
For Ch. 186 - Just a Chillin', I asked the team to do a project with ice cream. I thought an ice cream challenge would be cool and refreshing! Also, July is National Ice Cream Month, but I think ice cream is good in any month!

I am always needing birthday cards and the ice cream theme will work good. My card measures 6 1/2 x 5" white card stock. Patterned papers are Pressed Petals Assorted Cardstock with Glitter paper pack. Solid papers are from my scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Sweet Treats - Ice Cream delight is cut 4" high. 
Thoughts and Phrases - Good Times -- Happy birthday balloon is cut 2.10" high. 
DMC Memory Thread is attached to the balloon to act as a string.. I also made a bow from the same thread. 
Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments - Sentiment Loving Thoughts is attached to an inserted 4.50"  x 2.25" rectangle. This is used inside the card. Cricut Midnight pen is used for the writing.
