Welcome to my world of cards. This is my journey of joy using mainly Cricut and Copics. You will see some different techniques from time to time and I hope you find some ideas that give you inspiration. Everything that I post is meant to be shared and if you wish to "scraplift", I'm happy to share. Have fun while you're are!

You are so cool....


Well I can say, I made this card with felt and was ready to pull my hair out BEFORE I got it done! I had seen several cards with this main theme and thought, hey, I can do that (yeh right), so I dug out my felt, got down my Xyron machine, dug out pop sickle sticks and get adhesive on the felt. Well, I can tell you that either the adhesive was too much or maybe I just didn't know the right technique, but I had adhesive everywhere! The adhesive didn't really want to stick to the felt, but I made it! After I had everything together, probably an hour later for what should have been a 15 minute card, I had to clean my scissors, my hands and my mat with Un-Du. Oh well, it was finished after adding so jewels and Baker's twine. Funny thing was, I didn't actually like it that well when it was finished and on top of that, I found these cute little ice creams on the cart Kate's Kitchen - so that goes to show you, I worked harder, NOT smarter that day.
