H2H X 2

Hi all, this week one of my creations fulfilled two challenges on the Heart 2 heart blog this month.  The link is to the sketch that I used, the previous week they had its time to go big challenge, to make a card larger than our usual quarter fold of a card.
I was inspired by one of the cards that were already created for the challenge  by Tracy.  She used the spider's web from the CTMH cricut Artiste cartridge and I thought, and thought some more and came up with this one.  The puzzle, also on the Close to my Heart cricut Artiste cartridge as well as the puzzle heart.  The paper is old paper from CTMH called enchanted with pansy purple and garden green cardstock.  The I love you is from the Pemberly paper pack Workshop stamp set.  The size of this card is a half fold card.

It's time for a Mini Card Challenge at H2H

I know, I know, I have been absent for a bit, trying to get better at posting more regularly.  Now that fall is here, my schedule should get more regular and I hope to post more regularly.  Now to today's challenge, this is a challenge from early September on the H2H blog for Close to my Heart.  It is great to follow this blog and take the challenges to force myself to spend time creating.  We all need to do that on a regular basis to keep our lives fulfilled.
This early Sept. challenge was to create a mini card, smaller than the regular card we usually create.
Since today is my wedding anniversary I thought I would share a card I made to let my hubby know that I will OWLways love him :)

I used our new Cricut Artiste cartridge to make the owl and the pop up in the center of the card.  I just love those little owls.  Papers used are three of our new colours cashmere, saddle and ruby with black sparkles for the eyes.  The alphabet I used was the Trinity alphabet with ruby ink.  All the sponging was done with cashmere to give texture to the background and slate for the owl.

Clearly the Best: Bend It, Curve It, Stamp It (S01E01)

What a great video to spend a few minutes watching.  Very impressed with how they altered our clear acrylic stamps to create totally different impressions.  Now to try some of them myself ;)
