Cricut Frenzy and the winner is.......

I am in a Cricut frenzy at the moment as my Gypsy is alive and well, the TV repairman managed to fix it, and it works perfectly. Sighs of relief. So as I had made such a hoo-ha over it, I thought I better use it.......

I used A Childs Year for the shaped card, second cut, top row at 5 1/2". The shaped frames are from Elegant Edges, popped on with foam pads, and the flowers are from Mothers Day 2010. I cut three sprays in white, then coloured them with ProMarkers. The centers are newsprint Card Candi, from
 Craftwork Cards. Gingham cardstock by Kanban


I layered the flowers for dimension, and distressed them with a ball tool and foam mat





Anyone into the Olympics yet? I am now a world authority on Beach Volleyball, and Archery. Funny how listening to commentators discuss the game means that after an hour you can yell tactical advice at the screen. I expect to become an expert on rifle shooting, diving and a couple of other sports today, armchair sports can be very satisfying!


Thanks to everyone who threw their name into the hat for the Quick and Easy Cards magazine. The person who random.org picked as the winner is


Nancy from Ohio (Blog Kindred Spirit)

Congrats Nancy, email me and I will send your prize over to you

Really pretty card. Congrats to Nancy. I don't usually watch much sport but have just been glued to the diving - very disappointed that our lads came 4th. Boo Hoo! xx

This is brilliant, simple yet elegant. Achievable by anyone even without the carts. Lavender is one of my favorite colors. Most people aren't aware of all the card choiceson A Child's Year.

Love the card! I still haven't used my FlexMarkers to color things like this, really should do it, I'm always searching for just the right color of paper. DUH!
I finally watched the opening ceremonies and loved it. The commentator said that Humphery had the voice of an angel and she was sooooo right. I loved it all!
I've seen a couple things here and there, but I really want to watch more, just need to find the time.

Hi Enfys, love your card and the texture in the flowers. Huray for the TV fixer guy, he deserves the gold. Congrats to the lucky LUCKY winner. You should be the commentator in place of the Tennis commentators... they can put you to sleep fast. Have a wonderful day.
Hugs
