My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 155 Happy Mother's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Our design team sister Sandy chose the theme for Challenge 155 Happy Mother's Day - Something Girly. Now if I were making this card for myself, it would be pink and frilly! I am the only one in my family that really likes I chose another color scheme for my Mom.  Papers are from Prima The Second Wind. I think my mother will love this card!

Cricut Cartridges:
Elegant Embellishments - Card is cut 7.87"w 5.50"h. I like the cut out edges on the top layer of the card.
Mother's Day Phrases - Happy Mother's Day is cut 3.50"w 2.65"h. The flowers are also part of the cut.

Now it is your time to play along with us. For more inspiration, please visit My Sheri Crafts to see the pretty projects by the design team and our guest designer.

Rainy Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
We have been having several rainy days and more on the way. I decided to play along with a rainy day theme. The card is 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. I was inspired by the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I began the layers with the yellow solid cardstock and I continued with solid colors. This is not my usual style of papers--you know I love patterned papers--but I chose the solids this time. All the papers are from my scrap stack. My younger grandsons enjoy being outside on rainy days but they do not bother with any rain gear!!

Cricut Cartridges:
Everyday Paper Dolls - Boy wearing rain gear and the umbrella are layered together and is cut 3"h.
Disney Pooh and Friends -  Cloud and raindrops cut 3"w.  The cloud is used for the rain puddle. I failed to record the name of the cartridge for the gray cloud.
Cricut Font and Basic Shapes - Rainy Day is cut 1.74" w, 1.18" h.
Paisley - Heart button is cut 1" w. I added a bow with Sew Easy Fancy floss.
