Sunshine

 Good morning, everyone!

A new challenge at my Crafting Happiness Challenges blog is going on. Come join the fun! Each week we have a theme or an option to use Anything Goes if you prefer not to work with our theme.

This week it's all about SUNSHINE! Oh my gosh, I love the sunshine and warmer weather. 

For my card, I used a CardMaps sketch.

I created this card in Cricut Design Space using images, shapes, creating shadow layers, incorporating pattern paper designs, and then print and cutting everything and layering. Some bling was also added to the sun. :) 

You can create this card yourself with this link....

Enjoy - and let me know if you like this sort of thing. If so, I may try to make more of this type of print and cut layered card styles and then provide links for all of you to create in your own home.




Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Hope you'll join us at Crafting Happiness Challenges!

 Good morning, everyone!

Let's Craft & Create - Challenge theme:
Anything Goes + (optional)
add Flowers

This layout was so fun to make. I opened up the Cricut Design Space and just searched for Spring-like images. It's a mix of all sorts of things from all sorts of Cricut cartridges, and I love how it turned out.




If you would like to make this layout, here's the link. Feel free to customize it as you wish. Enjoy!
