Spring Has Sprung

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

After so much recent rains and flooding in my area, it is so nice to see days of sunshine and pretty Spring blooming flowers. Water continues to rise and I am praying that soon it will be begin to recede. So many acres of farmland are flooded and several roads are impassable. 
My card reflects thoughts of Spring! Card is 5" x 6 1/2". Papers are from scrap stash.

Get Well Wishes

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Needing a couple of Get Well cards, I have been playing with my Cricut and some pretty Anna Griffin images. I made two cards using the same focal image on each card but with a little mix of the colors and sentiment tags. Each card measures 5" x 6 1/2".

Cricut Cartridges:
Anna's Lace Cards and Embellishments - Butterfly and Flower background is cut 4.75" using shades of purple.
Splendid Soirees -  Mandrin Tag is cut 3" wide. Using Anna's Lace Cards and the Cricut Midnight pen, the sentiment is written on the tag.
Elegant Embellishments - Sentiment tag for the following card. Anna's Lace Cards sentiment Thinking of You is also written with the Cricut Midnight pen.

2nd Card.

For the inside sentiments, I used Anna's Garden Cards and Embellishments - Warmest Wishes- on each card.

 Inside of white card.

Inside of purple card.

Sentiment tags are pop-dotted on each card. The pretty lavender crinkle ribbon is from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces! Thanks Karen for the recent win!  I added a few rhinestones on the top card.

I like the way the cards turned out, but I can not choose a favorite! Which one do you like?

Happy Easter

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Easter! Hope you are having a blessed day! Let us rejoice! Thank you Jesus!

I am sharing one last Easter card. I have not had much free time for crafting, but I did want to try this image on a card. My card is white card stock and measures 5" x 6 1/2". Patterned paper and solid papers were in my scrap stash.

The Chocolate Easter Egg is a SVG freebie from Miss Kate Cuttables
I cut the image on my Cricut Explore at 3.75" high. I have only used SVG files a couple of times and this image cut really well. I used similar colors as shown on the display image. Thanks 
Miss Kate Cuttables for the free image. I like the way it turned out.

Cricut Cartridge Designer's Calendar is used for the word Easter. It is cut 1.25" high.

The pretty sketch at Paper Play Sketches is the foundation of my card. I changed the position for the sentiment but with sketches, it is fun to have your own play on the sketch!

Pretty yellow twine from Diana at DL.ART is the perfect finish for my card. Thanks Diana for my recent win!
