Heartfelt Thanks

I am sharing a Criss-Cross card made for a Thank you card. I enjoy making these and they are really easy to make. The base of the card starts with two 4 1/4" x 11" pieces of cardstock. A piece of 4" x 5" patterned paper is needed for the criss cross. A great tutorial can be found at Splitcoaststampers.
I love this K&Company Water Color Bouquet tablet that I found at Michael's. It is double-sided and is gorgeous paper. All patterned paper is from the pack. White and green papers are Colorbok.
Cricut cartridges:
Paisley - Flower -Button feature on page 51. Large flower cut 1 1/2", 1 3/4", and 2". Small flowers cut 3/4" and 1".
Wild Card - Phrase on page 55 cut 14 inches. I know this sounds really large, but the phrases are designed for the card features. Green curls are the Icon feature on page 37 and are cut at 2 inches. I tried the flip function for one of the curls, but each time I tried, it was torn.

I cut a piece of 12' green cardstock with the Martha Stewart doily lace trim for the band around the card. Lots of inking, button, DMC Memory Thread, and gemstones!

My Sheri Crafts - #59 May Flowers and 1,2, 3 Recipe -1 button, 2 designer papers, 3 flowers. I think I got all that covered. Actually I used 4 different patterned papers from K&Company. Do I get extra points!!

Whew! I am running really late with getting this card online, but think I am beating the deadline! Would you believe after I took photos, the camera battery died! I had to recharge the battery a bit so I could get the photo on the post. 
Hope you enjoy the card!

Re-post - Red and Purple Mother's Day Side Step

Recently I posted this card that I made for a Red Hat Lady but unfortunately during the time that blogger was down for a couple of days, it disappeared AND never came back. This card is the same design and uses the same size Cricut cuts as the pink/lavender card which you can view here . Just wanted to share how it looks with red and purple! Hmm--I like both color combos!

Blog Awards

I am honored to have received not one, but two blog awards in the last couple of days! Many thanks to these talented ladies for sharing the awards with me!

Patty at Creative Diva gave me the Cricut-tastic award!
Sherrie at Sherrie Scraps with Passion gave me A Thing of Beauty Award!   

Thanks to both of you for thinking of me! I am happy to add your names on the side bar blog awards!
Be sure to visit each of their blogs to see all their pretty creations!
Thanks Again!!
