Wednesday's My Creative Time

As part of the My Cricut Craft Room's design team, today I was able use
        two of my favorite things!  My Cricut and Emma's My Creative Times Stamps.  How cool it that?!  I decided to do a card for my mom who I feel
needs a 'pick me up'.   Something to let her know we love and appreciate her 
 and all she does for us. Of course, I needed to make it from the
 Grandkids though...Somehow, they are cuter.  hahaha!

Here is my completed card.
 I have seen this heeled shoe before but it comes as a pair on the Paisely Cricut Cartridge, and I have always wanted to use it for something. Then I saw a card similar to this in one, in one of the Cricut magazines, so I thought--why not!

My card is a basic  size, all the papers I used are scraps and I  embossed the pink paper with  Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I did make an extra trip to Michaels, looking for some cork board-like paper for the heel of the shoe and found some with adhesive backing.  It was a little tempermental in cutting but it turned out just fine.  And I like the added touch to the shoe.  I also added a nice big flower to the top with a pearl-like brad to the center and some left over Creative Memories alphabet letters for spelling out "Nana".   Of course, once I got them  adhered on to my card, then I did not like the color green.  So, I used my Smooch Paints  in Apple Green to paint the stickers. For my sentiment,  I also chose to use Emma's, My Creative Time stamp set called "So Grateful For You".  I felt it fit perfectly for what I was looking to do and make.  Well, I hope you enjoyed my card today and wish you all many blessings today.  Don't forget to check out my design team sisters and there fabulous creations at My Cricut Craft Room
