Gate Fold Card

 The front and outside of the card.

 The inside of the card and the band is shown below.

The card opened

I know it has been a very long time since I have posted anything, but life has just gotten in the way.
We  have totally remodeled our home in Florida (which has been so fun) and I had major back surgery.  Between redecorating everything and recovering
 from surgery I just have not been able to sit down to my craft table to create other than cards for my "family".  I am still pretty limited on what I can do, but I am improving each day.  During this time I had lots of time to be on Pinterest and discover many things I want to do.

This is a Gate Fold card that I created with my Cricut.  I know I have told you how much I love this new Cricut Maker and they just keep adding new tools to it to make it even better.   The flower is an image by Anna Griffin that I have doubled for more dimension.

I will soon be adding a video of our newly remodeled home.  I have decorated it in Joanna Gaines Farmhouse Style and we LOVE it.  It is so fresh and bright and it is just perfect for us at this stage of our lives.

I sure do miss you all and would love to hear from you.  If you ever get to Fort Myers, please call me and hopefully we can get together.  My email is and my phone number is 574 514 1423.

Hi Joan, Well, redecorating is fun, but back surgery sure is not! I had back surgery 8 years ago and I still have some complications, so I know what you are going through. My best wishes are with you for a FULL and speedy recovery.
You card is very cute. Glad you are enjoying your new machine so much. Continue to have fun with it.
