It is with great sadness that I write this post.  Father's Day is just around the corner but I won't be able to make a Father's Day card for my sweet FIL anymore, because I just lost him.  :-(  This is one I made him before, and he loved it. :-)

RIP, sweet Ron.  I miss you!!!!  I miss talking to you about Elvis.  I miss your chuckle.  I just plain miss you, period.  I'll see you at your service, on Sunday.  :-(



Tools/Items:-
Cricut Imagine
Cricut Cartridge – Everyday Paper Dolls
Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page – Quilted
Glue – regular; ATG; Zig Two Way
Cardstock – patterned; white (for the Imagine)
Corner rounder
Popdots
Baker’s Twine – fishing line, fish basket handle
Stampin’ Up Ink – Creamy Caramel
Brad – for closure on fish basket
Created totally on the Cricut Imagine, floodfilling the layers using RGB codes. Inked all the edges and parts of the layers to allow the cut lines to show thru. Used the border punch on the inside design edge and the corner punch on the sentiment. Sentiments were computer-generated.

Melody's 5000 subbie contest

Hiya!  You gotta check this one out.  Melody Lane of Melody Lane Designs is running a contest, whereby she's asking her subbies to send her a banner with the letters:-  CREATE.  Only, she's just asking for one letter on one banner.  However, you can enter as many times as you wish and send a few or all of the letters.  She's wanting the word, CREATE so she can put it on her wall.  She'll be making a choice of each of the letters and whichever one she chooses, the entrant will win an awesome prize.  

I designed a "T" for her.  Here it is:-


Please wish me luck that she likes and chooses my "T".  J

Cricut Circle Challenge #9

1.       Create a card or a LO, stamp, as well as emboss.... but use only 3 colour cardstocks.....any three colours and include a dressform on it.  
Used my Cricut Imagine to create this card. The background colours (teal, gold, and gray) are from the Ancestry cart. The dressform is from the French Manor cart. The spool of thread is from the Happily Ever After cart. Added some yarn on the spool. The stitching on my background “quilt” is from a Daisy D runner. The sentiment was computer-generated and I used the RGB codes of the teal and gold colours on the Ancestry cart. to mimic the colours.

I printed/cut 4 scallop circles, floodfilled with different designs (2 were the same:- grey) and then cut them apart to make 4 pie shapes. Glued them together, to form one circle. Then added my faux stitching, to make it look like a quilt. 





Cricut Circle Challenge #8

1.      Take one Cricut layer and make it a plus.


Here's my spin on it:-

. . . a "Thinking of You" card I made for a friend. Betcha think the blue is showing thru the butterfly, eh? 
 Nope! But I did use double-sided cardstock.  



Only I flipped the butterfly on both the card and envelope, to show the opposite side colour.  You can see it better in this pic.  


Then, I covered up the inside butterfly w/ a "fluttering by" saying:-
