Spring Card

Tonight I got home from grocery shopping and it was just about 25 degrees.  I have had enough of the cold!  Tomorrow's high is said to be 36 degrees.  So, I wanted to do something SPRING like!!!

You may have seen this fabulous blue flower paper in an earlier post.  I posted it here.  Well, little did I know you actually CAN sand that paper!  I loved it just based on the embossing and bought a ton of it.  Now I have seen even more potential in it.  So you know what I did? Went back to the store and bought more.  I can't WAIT to play with that!!!  This paper is made by Core'dinations.  The green paper is made with that too.  You should have seen hubby's face when I asked for sandpaper.  He had to explain the numbers on the sand paper to me ;)  I used 150 for this.

For the lamb I looked at one of my favorite blogs, Jessica at Chick N Scrap.  She does a much better job on the patchwork.  This was my first attempt and I will try again for sure.  Jessica has a nice tutorial on her site.  I cut the lamb from Animal Kingdom.

The lettering is from Lyrical Letters.  I used my Cricut Ink for the first time!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!

Thank you so much for visiting!  Thanks in advance for all of the blog lovin'!!!

Queen of my craftroom use ugly paper
Here are 2 of the pieces I cut down for the lamb.  Ugly enough? :)

  1. Our WalMart has the cricut ink on clearance for either $6 or $8; wasn't sure if/how it worked so i didn't buy any. Do you like it?

  2. Thanks for linking my tutorial :)
    I think you did a GREAT job...even with ugly paper :)

  8. Ok, first I think it is funny that a challenge would ask you to use ugly paper! When we buy paper we don't think it is ugly!!!! HAHAHA. Alone, maybe, but on your lamb, not so ugly. I think it looks cute!!!! I like how your card turned out. TFS and thanks for joining us at Cooking With Cricut:)
