Our Grandson Johnny's birthday  is next week, so I finished his card today.

He loves tools and his tool box. so I thought this card fit him nicely.

Cards and Shirts

I need several cards in the next few days, so I made a generic card that can be used for both occasions, Get Well and Birthday.  I love these corners from Cheery Lynn and the 

Scroll in the middle is from Memory Box.  I embossed the velum with a 6x6 Craftwell Embossing Folder.  The card is a 6x6 card.  The Flower is printed on my new Kodak Verite Craft Printer and I used the Cricut to cut it out.  This new technology is amazing.  fussy cutting was never one of my favorite things to do so this is perfect for me. 

 I have another Craft Fair coming  on February 17 in our Community.  On the way to Florida this year, I started thinking what I could do for the craft fairs.  A good friend was doing cards and even though they are not like mine, I did not want to compete with her.  I gave it a lot of thought and finally decided I could design a Pine Ridge Tee Shirt. (that is the name of our community)  I spent days learning how to use the new program for the Cricut (everything is done on the computer which I love).  I sold over 30 shirts at the Craft Fair, so by the time I got them all done I was pretty familiar with my new Cricut.  Now that I have my new craft room, it is much easier.  I can pretty much design anything anyone wants on a shirt, which makes it fun.  I hope to get some signs painted and cute boxes made before the Craft fair.  Lots to do, but I LOVE my new craft room and I could spend all day in it.  I have to force myself to go swimming in the morning at 8. ha
