The Lion and the gift...

Welcome to all my fabulous new blogger friends, I look forward to getting to know you all and I welcome any comments and/or tips and tricks.

It has been crazy busy around my house with little league baseball, school and work, but I have found the time for a few cards and a couple of layouts. Also I received a wonderful PIF (pay it forward) gift from Kim B. at A Gypsy Angel (see below picture). 



Isn't this just the cutest little notebook.  Fits in the palm of my hand, even better, my purse.  Thank you Kim for the wonderful gift.

Next is a card I made for the CWC-22 Lions and Lamb Challenge.



Recipe
Quote: "And the lion fell in love with the lamb..."by Edward Cullen Twilight
Cricut Cartridge Cricut Sampler - Lion (pg 51)
Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials - Accent 31s (pg 62)
Flower: Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials - Accent 24s (pg 55) & Accent 33s (pg 64) with Spiced Marmalade Stickles and sprayed with Maya Mist

Sentiment - Artful INKables: Fictionally Inspired set
Distress Ink By Tim Holtz - Vintage Photo


I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I did making it.

Oh yes, also...at my children's school (K-5th grade) it is Youth Art Month and a few pieces of the art work is chosen from each grade level for display at our local Performing Arts Center and...my daughter's (3rd grade) art work was chosen to be one of pieces.  Needless to say I am one very very proud momma! I will post pictures as soon as I can.

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
