I think I desperately needed to do a card without an immediate purpose. And so, I was very excited about the challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. The challenge for this week is a creation with at least one Cricut cut that shows your favorite season. While I know a lot of people will be doing spring and flowers and all that, I couldn't look at another pink or green piece of paper (at least not for a couple of hours).
Can you tell that the wheelbarrow originally was filled with sunflowers which I covered up with the leaves? The leaves were cut from a package of 1.75 x 12 inch strips of Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock. This package of paper showed up in my mailbox one day last month without an explanation. I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth so, I'm using it. At first I couldn't imagine what I would do with these little strips but I must say, they were perfect for these small leaves. I could have made the leaves almost twice as big and still fit them on the strips.
Thank you for checking out today's card. I'm hoping to put together a couple additional cards for tomorrow. We'll see if the weather calls me outside or if I still get some crafting done. I've been sitting in my craft space with all of the windows open. It is such a wonderful feeling. I think spring might have arrived here in Georgia.
