Thank you tulip card made using Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art cartridge.

Hello, everyone!!

Long time no blog! I hope you have all been very well! I know that I have had a nice little break, but am back to post wonderful projects for the most wonderful blog followers around!

As you know, Joy and I went on the Cricut Cruise and had a most fabulous time. If they do it again next year and you do not win a free cruise, you should definitely buy the trip! It was truly one of the best trips I have ever been on! We met such wonderful people and had a great time teaching our Cricut classes. Seriously, meeting some of our wonderful followers was truly a privilege!

Ok, now today's card was actually something I was supposed to post the day we left for the cruise. I was so busy, so I totally forgot. It was not until Joy asked me what happened did I realize that I had not posted. AHHHHHHHHH!! I felt like a total moron!

The cartridge used is the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art cartridge. This little tulip is a hidden treasure I think. I just love it!


The paper and ribbon are from Papertrey Ink.
The tulip(pg 65 in the handbook) was cut at 1 3/4".
The 'top note' die is a Papertrey Ink die.

 Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have something posted on my other blog today click here to check it out ==> Courtney Lane Designs

Have a MARVELOUS Monday!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs! Have a great day!

Thank you for featuring Martha Stewart, I now know I will be buying more cartridges. (Actually I don't think I will ever stop buying them!)
I enjoy seeing how Y'all use all the cartridges, but I thought Martha's carts only worked with the cake machine. Guess you can tell I am pretty new to all this.
