Anniversary Card

My oldest daughter and her husband will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversay in early August. The wedding colors were lavender, so the card is shades of purple. I used the Gypsy to design the card, the Original Cricut to cut all the pieces and the Cuttlebug for embossing

Ladybug Birthday Card

On Sunday the 18th my oldest granddaughter will be celebrating her 15th birthday. When she was a little girl, she loved ladybugs known as ladybirds in the UK. So I decided to make a ladybug shaped card for her birthday.

The card was designed using the Gypsy and pieces were cut using the Cricut Expression.

Cartridges used were Walk in My Garden and George & Basic Shapes(Ladybug), Create A Critter(Happy Birthday) and Birthday Cakes(Audrey and 15th).
