April Showers Blog Hop…

Welcome to the

We're so glad you are hopping with us today.  We've got all kinds of great baby and bridal shower related crafts and ideas for you.  You should have arrived here from Sarah’s blog, but, if you just stopped by for a visit, be sure to hop over to Theresa's blog to get started so you don’t miss any of the great projects.

My first card was designed by me and cut on my Cricut.  I wanted to try a cut-out card so I found a graphic of a bird cage and did a little node editing to get the outcome below.  I added a piece of designer paper behind the cut-out to pretty it up a little.  I used my Cricut pen to write the sentiment directly onto the card.  I have a niece who is getting married in July and I think this card will be great for her upcoming bridal shower in May.

My next card was fun to put together.  I cut out my cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug to give it some texture and then I adhered that to my base layer.  I used my Cricut to cut out the towel bar, towels, hearts, and frilly edges for the towels.  Once again, I used the Cricut to write the monogram for the towels.  I put it all together and added some ribbon and a little sentiment to finish it off. 

I wanted to make a couple more cards but I ran out of time.  I may still spend a little time in my craft dungeon this weekend and add another card or two to this post if I’m able.

I have to laugh because I had the towel card on my list of cards to make. I just love them both.
Thanks for always being a great blogger in my hops.

Sharon, beautiful work as always! I love that bird cage! And I've wanted to make that towel card for so long. On Pinterest I saw that card and a second one to be send on the first anniversary of the new couple with the "his" towel crumpled on the floor...made me laugh. As always, it's great fun to hop with you!

Your cards are GREAT! (out of curiosity... Why do you call it a "dungeon"? [just wondering...]) Don't you just love writing with the Cricut? Kinda fun and I love watching it work. (although... sometimes I think it's a bit slow, as I'm kind of impatient...) That towel card is way cute!
