I have to go for my PET Scan tomorrow and am pretty nervous about that. I do not do small spaces well!!! In order to keep myself busy today while hubby was watching the Nascar race, I decided to try and do the Cricut Circle Challege and make a birthday card for my sweet aunt Jewel in Ohio who turns 80 Saturday. She is an avid quilter and sewer, and loves Dogwood trees, therefore the card was made with that in mind.
The challenge this week for the Cricut Circle Blog was to create a card using three vintage elements and a sketch submitted by Jane Eubank. I do not do well with Vintage cardmaking or layouts. I tend to create more clean, crisp, and simple lines. I love the looks of other's vintage items and think my talent is just not in this area. On the inside of the card is her name, 80 and Happy Birthday cut with Nifty Fifties font.
I used George (Shape for card), Nifty Fifties (Sewing Machine), Simply Charmed (Quilting Items) and Sentimentals (Scissors) for the cuts. The Rosette was done using my Pazzles Machine and the Dogwood flowers are Jolees. The papers were scraps that I have had and I am determined to use my scarps up if possible.
