My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 178 Thinking of You

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts. This week, our design team sister Sue asked us to create a Thinking of You card. We all need this type of card quite often--can be sympathy, get well, thank you, etc. Thinking of you phrase must be on the card! 

My card measures 5" x 6 1/2" and is white card stock. Patterned papers are DCWV Fresh Floral Stack and solid papers are from scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Spring Fling - Thinking Of You sentiment is cut 3.75" wide. Flower pitcher is cut 1.75" high. Tulips are cut 1.75" high. I really enjoy using this cartridge. It includes the pen work on the designs which adds more detail to the images. I used the Cricut Midnight Pen.
Ribbons and Rosettes - Scallop  border is cut 2.70" wide x .25" high. Added the border for the pitcher to sit on.
Using Cricut Insert Shapes, the white rectangle mat is cut 2.50" wide x 6.25" high. Purple rectangle mat is cut 2.75" wide x 6.25" high.
Phrases - Rectangle frame label is cut 4.25" wide x 2.68" high. This is used inside the card. Using Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments - Just a Note sentiment is written on the white frame label using the Cricut Midnight pen.

I added small purple rhinestone embellishments for extra bit of detail.

Bunny Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

After making a little Cricut time, I have an Easter card to share today. Card is cut from white card stock using a Cricut card image and measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Solid papers are from the scrap stash. Patterned papers used inside the card are DCWV Fresh Floral Stack. I think the papers do well for Spring and Easter colors!

Cricut Cartridges:
Simple Holiday Cards - Bunny card is cut 8.5" wide x 5.5" high. I really like the bunny shape cut into the egg. Of course, I added more Cricut images for a little more personalized look.
When I Was a Kid - Corner Flourish is cut 2.1" wide x 2.2" high. All four corners are included in this size.
Splendid Soiree- Bow on rabbit is cut 1.00" wide.
Holiday Cakes - Happy Easter is cut 3.5" wide. This is used inside the card.

I added two small yellow buttons in the upper corners. Twine is from a recent win from Diana at DL.ART. Thanks Diana for the pretty twine colors!

Easter Box

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

The past week has been really busy. With all the recent heavy rains and flooding in our area, I have moved my parents in my house with me. Water should not go into their house, but the road became impassable last Saturday. Water had been rising 6 inches daily, but the last couple of days only 4 inches each day. Predictions are for the nearby river to crest on Thursday. Even with that date, it will probably still be several weeks before they can return home. Many acres of farmland are under water and lot of that land had already been planted with corn crops. Several families have moved out from the low-lying areas. My Cricut playing has been limited, but I hope to be playing more in the upcoming days.

I wanted to make a small Easter box for candy and to use as decoration. Since I have not bought any Easter candy, I am using peppermint in it now. Papers are from the pastel scrap stash. I decorated each side of the box using Cricut images. Eight cartridges were used!

Cricut Cartridges:
Cindy Loo - Basket is cut 11.50" wide.
Classroom April- May - Happy Easter is cut 2.75" wide. A piece of acetate is glued to the sentiment to hold in the box.
Create A Critter - Rabbit is cut 2.25" high.
Easter 2010 - Chick is cut 2.25" high. 
Easter Magic - Blue, yellow, lavender egg is cut 2.25" high.
Plantin Schoolbook - Grass is cut 2.15" wide x .47" high
Teresa Collins - Bunnies and Chicks - bunnies and chicks border is cut 2.90" wide x .30" high
Teresa Collins - Easter Basket - Yellow and lavender egg is cut 1.78" wide x 2.75" high.

Pink twine from Diana at DL.ART is used for the four bows on each corner. Thank you Diana for my recent win!

Sharing pics of the different sides of the box.

I am pleased with the results of the little box! Hope you enjoy it!
