sending you wheelbarrows of love!

look at those cute little wheelbarrows! they're the sweetest ever, right? i love the elegant touch the pearl strand adds (a value buy from Jo-Ann's)...

well, these cards (i made 6 of similar design, color, etc) were a blast to make. i busted out my Cricut again for the flowers/ wheelbarrow--this time using the Walk in My Garden cartridge. it's full of garden images, and really beautiful flowers... perfect for those embellishments for cards or page layouts. i think i'll be making a garden card for my Dad soon--he's the one who's always in our backyard making things look fantastic. in fact, he even has his own blog where he posts new projects and pictures from his favorite "changes." you should check it out :D

oooo, and that sentiment "sending you love" is one of my favorites from DeNami Design--i recently went to a show where they were selling and ended up walking away with a TON of new stamps... they just came out with a new line, you really have to go check them out for the sweetest/ cutest/ most versatile stamps ever. did i mention they were cute?

i used paper from AC and (agh, can't remember the green pattern!), as well as some black ric-rack. the green paper was to "ground" the Cricut images... like grass :D oh, and that border punch, Martha Stewart style, is fast becoming a favorite... scallops tend to trap me!

well, thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a wonderful day! i'm just loving reading all your comments!

This card is so beautiful! I really mean that. It would be perfect for anyone who gardens, or really anyone who enjoys gardens. Love the pearl embellishments on the wheelbarrow - you're right in that they add a touch of class.

Great card!

These are great. The wheelbarrows would be awesome to get in the mail or send to somewhere far away. Thanks for sharing.
