Enjoy the Journey

Hello everyone and welcome!
I have been wanting to make this post for quite sometime now...and...finally...I can!  Back in July, I had my very first card published and have anxiously been awaiting it's return so that I could post it on my blog.  I know that the Cricut Magazine from July is probably old news to most of you - but I just had to share my card with you!

Once a project is published through Cricut, you can post it on your blog, or elsewhere, after 2 months.  But, I failed to take decent photos before sending off my card...lesson learned....and had to wait for my card to return safely home!  So, now that's back where it belongs.....

(click on photo to enlarge)

I wish I could photograph as well at the folks at Cricut Magazine!  My card has lots of Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter on it and I have a hard time capturing that sparkle.

The bird is from the Cricut Cartridge "Florals Embellished" and the beautiful sentiment is from "Pink By Design".  I used a die from Spellbinders for the lovely sentiment mat.

My card is in the July, 2012 issue of Cricut Magazine, pages 96 and 97.

Thank you all so much for letting me share a long-time crafting goal with you!
The weekend is almost here and I hope you all have a wonderful one.  My sweet boys, Blake and Brayden are coming for a visit this weekend.  My Emma will be here also so we are planning on having a fun filled weekend at our county fair!  Thanks again for stopping by and I'll be seeing you soon....

Until next time,
