Circle thinlits die Thank you

I made my future daughter-in-law some thank you cards for the bridal shower we had for her. I had all the guests write their mailing address on an envelope at the shower. All Rylee had to do was write the thank you and send it off. They are pretty simple, but when I was making 30 of them, it had to be simple.

I used the new circle thin lit. It was so fast and easy. I also purchased the magnetic platform. I didn't think I needed it, but it is really nice to keep the dies in place.

More Wood signs

Here are a couple more signs I made for the wedding couple.
I painted the Families are forever sign. Printed the text off on the computer and then used it for the pattern. It's been a while since I've made signs like these.

Here is another cricut cut sign . . .
My son said they needed something for their bedroom wall so this is what I came up with.

Wooden signs

I'm still making things for the wedding. Here is a sign I made for the couple to use at the reception.
I used my cricut to cut the letters and glued them to the board. The saying goes for anyone, not just the bride and groom. My love story is pretty special too.

Antique Ornament card

Here is another Christmas card . . .
I made the background paper by using the musical note wheel and sponging the edges with Soft Suede ink. The pine needles stamp is from the Peaceful Wishes (retired set) stamp set, but any similar stamp would work. I stamped the ornament and used the die to cut it out. The words are from a retired set too.

Antique Snowman card

Had a little time to stamp last week . . . or should I say I took time to stamp. My schedule is pretty busy, but I needed to relax and guess what I chose to do . . . yep, stamp. I'm not sure why I went with Christmas cards, but here is one that I made. I found the example on Pinterest.
It is hard to tell, but the snowman is made of vanilla card stock.
