Cooking With Cricut Challenge-Card Outreach


I must say I am so glad I work way ahead on my Design Team challenges as I have been really sick for 5 days.  Leave it to me to get a child's disease that adults rarely get -Hand, Foot and Mouth.  If you don't know what it is you get blisters all over your mouth, tongue, palms and sole of your feet.  It is really unpleasant and doctor says I have a really bad case which will last for 7-10 days. So with that said I have not been scrappin at all. Not sure which is driving me crazier the virus or not feeling like crafting. 

I made two easel cards for the Card Outreach for the two girls that are battling cancer.  The first is for Emily who I have already been in two blog hops for.  Emily's aunt Michelle is on Lasting Memories Design Team with me.  

Bear Kisses for you is a Paper Crafting World file 
The kiss is cut from duct tape sheets
I used a MS punch, gems, punched hearts and ribbon
Little flowers with pearls from Flower Shoppe
Also entering this card in Exploring Cricut challenge which is to use a Cricut Flower
and Die Cuttin Divas use pastels 

The second card is for another girl who is 13 and also fighting cancer. 
I used Rock Princess for this card and am entering this is the 
Celebrate the Occasion challenge Just Because  (use pink)
and My Craft Spot challenge- in and out sentiment.
Girls Rock p. 68 cut at 2.3 inches
Wings and heart page 54 cut at  3.4 inches
Then I added gems, ribbon and punched hearts from scraps
I hope you will join us this week for the challenge and send these girls cards.  Please check for all the details on Cooking with Cricut and I will look forward to seeing what you do.  Happy Craftin!

  4. Hi Suzanne, Oh I am so delighted to be making a card again for Emily. Both of your cards are just wonderful and so age appropriate. I love easel cards and know the girls will too. The flowers on Emily's card are just so pretty. I love the pearl centers. And the colors of the card are so pretty and happy.
    I just know that Patty is just going to flip over this card. You could not have made it with better colors for her. And the addition of bte embellishments really rock the card. What a perfect sentiment.
    Hugs,
    Charlotte
