My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 112

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is Saturday and time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Ch. 112 is Summer Solstice- Longest Day. Our talented Sue asked us to make a card or project with a summer evening in mind. It could be a sunset or a view from your porch. My grandsons love baseball and in the evenings they can be found on the baseball field-either practice or playing in a game. Since I needed a birthday card for one grandson, I chose a fun shape baseball card. Cricut cartridge is Life's A Party. The card feature and phrase is on page 37. I did not record the sizes. Looking at the image in the Cricut handbook, you will see that the card is not a circle. I trimmed the area at the top of the card to make it a circle yet leaving the connected area intact. Papers are from the scrap stash! A simple card but my grandson liked it or maybe it was the money he found inside!!

Be sure to visit My Sheri Crafts to see the inspiring projects by our talented design team and guest designer. For more information on the projects, please visit the individual blogs. Don't forget to leave us a little love!
Now it is your turn to play along with us. Remember one person will be chosen to be our next guest designer and several Ooh la la awards will be given. We look forward to seeing your projects. 

I am sharing photos of my grandsons in action at the ball field!

Thanks for your visits and comments!

Tea Time

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today's card is inspired by the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. Challenge 169 is Let's Have Tea! The colors in the following lovely photo must be used and the project must include flowers and a tea theme.

Lovely photo inspiration

I chose to use one of my favorite card cuts from Cricut Damask Decor cartridge which is a tea pot card. The card image is found on page 61 and is cut at 4.75" from K&Company double-sided paper. The little tea cup image is on the same page. Just love these papers!

Other supplies include lace, pearls, and flower from my stash. Lots of inking. The ribbon is from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces.

Hope you enjoy my card! I love the Shabby Chic look and continue to work on my designs. Maybe one day I will be better with this design style! Thanks for stopping by!
