fishin with friends

Hello crafters, Cathy here to share a card I created this week, which was inspired by a card I saw a while back on Pinterest.  I can not remember where I saw it or would give the creator the due credit.  
I purchased a fish stamp set, cause I thought it was cute, and was waiting for just the right idea to use it is what  evolved...

I love how it turned out. thanks for looking, leave some bloggy love.. and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

FCC blog challenge #338~ Anniversary

Happy Saturday, hope today finds you happy and healthy.  For me today is a sit in my recliner and relax watching Hallmark movies.  It is so dreary out here in Maine today..raining and blustery. 

Between movies I figured I would pop on to my blog and share an anniversary card I made using my Cricut machine.  I love butterflies and so I cut out 2 different ones and a couple square mats to put the card together.  I used papers from Close To My Heart, and the butterfly is gold glitter paper.  For the corners of the white mat, I used a Martha Stewart corner punch. 

I saw that Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog was having a challenge this week, and besides having to use Cricut cuts, you had to theme it Anniversary, so here is my relatively simple card for the challenge.

Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of your weekend

Happy Crafting..Cathy
