Wow! What a week! I feel so darned Lucky and I'll tell you why in just a minute! First, here is a card I made for my kids and hubby. I actually made 3 of these and due to lack of time (as usual) I just made the one simple design.
I started off using a card pack I got in the dollar section at Michaels last year (Back when it was a dollar section and not $1.50-$3) It is plain green with the the lucky cut out of it. I planned on using these for something Girl Scouts but remembering back to this time last year losing my pup overwhelmed me and I got nothing done!
I wanted to make an envelope spilling out clovers like I've seen done with hearts on Pinterest. I found this cute little envelope on the Cricut Celebrations cartridge. The cute four leaf clover was from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I cut out additional clovers in a couple sizes and added bling. The cute green chevron paper was from a Christmas DCWV stack. I used Joy's life stamps to put together the sentiment, I handcut the banner and popped it up with pop dots, and there you have it... my simple card.
I then surprised my 2 kids and hubby with a bunch of green snacks (M&Ms, Pringles, gum...) and they got a kick out of it.
This has been a very lucky week for me. I enter blog challenges whenever I can and this week I won 3 times!! This never happens to me! I entered my Pooh Card in a box and won a brand new stamp set from Craftin Desert Diva's facebook page. They are coming out with a new line of stamps and I just can't wait to see them! I also won a couple sets of Unity stamps, and some ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces. Then to top it off I got my order from Cricut.com. They had an amazing sale, which is rare, and I got all this stuff for $52.00! I am the true blue discount shopper and only get stuff when it is cheap.
I really need to craft more to use all this stuff, especially my cuttlebug that is so neglected!
I will be entering my Lucky card in the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I wish you all a Lucky Day!
