thanks a bunch + i'm back!

hey guys, i'm back home! whew, it feels good, but weird. i'll post pictures and tell stories from my trip later, but FIRST, today's card is really dedicated to you, my blog readers. thank you for leaving all your sweet comments on my posts while i was away in Ecuador, and also for your well wishes--they meant a lot to me! glad you didn't have to miss any cards while i was gone, though :D

but really, thank you!

well, here's a card i made using only Cricut cuts... from the "thanks" sentiment, to the flower stem, to the flower itself. it looks really neat all layered and put together, don't you think? i LOVE that "thanks" font--cute stuff.

the only "non-Cricut" elements used were adhesive (foam tape, quickie glue pen, and ATG adhesive) and the button/ twine in the center of the flower.

this card fits into a business size envelope, so it's a "long and skinny" card. hehe. i love how i can just cut out pieces for cards, and assemble and voila--there's a beautiful card!

thanks again, and check back soon for news on my trip :D
