I am back...

I am finally back on my blog with something to show.  I have been busy with the holidays and doctor appointments and over night sleep studies for my husband.  For those of you who do not know me, my husband has Primary Progressive MS and requires a lot of care.  He has been in a wheel chair for 7 years.  I do my crafting in our bedroom which is where he spends most of his day.  I so love making cards and now I am getting into making scrapbooks. Working on one right now for my son and his future wife.  They went to New York to Times Square and to see Phantom of the Opera and to New Jersey to Carlos Bakery.
     So, last night I put together this card.  Valentines Day is just around the corner.   I love owls and pink and for Christmas I got 2 new cartridges from  my daughter in law.  The Paisley one and Straight from the Nest.  I love them. So I put this card together to enter it in the "Cooking With Cricuts'" Something new Challenge.  This will be my first Challenge, kind of excited:)
  Listed below are the item I used to make the card:
Cricuts Straight from the Nest
Cricut Paisley
DCWV  Brights cardstock Stack
DCWV  Floral Stack
White gel pen
white cardstock..Wal mart
Cricut Alphabet
green ribbon from Wal Mart\
Hope you like it:)
