My guest designer's Cricut Cardz Challenge #67 card!

This is a card that my 12 year old niece, Hannah, made for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #67 - make a card using the colors green, white and pink only.  She lives five hours away, and she made this for me and mailed it to me.  We are pen pals and exchange cards that we make all the time.  GREAT job, Hannah! You make me proud in SO many ways.  Thanks for visiting me! :)

My first guest designer!

I would like to welcome my first guest designer on my blog.  She is VERY dear to my heart like my own daughter.  Her name is Hannah.  She is 12 years old, and she is my niece! She makes great cards and scrapbooks also. My daughter is not into paper crafts but amazingly talented in other things. Hannah lives about five hours away.  She sent me this card for my birthday.  Shout out to Hannah!! Thanks for visiting me! :)

Cricut Cardz Challenge #65

For this week's challenge make a tall card (9"x4") using any cartridges, theme or colors you would like.  I made this card for my father in law's birthday.  He is literally a rocket scientist, so I thought he would like this card.  I used Just Because Cards cartridge and cut the rocket at 10".  Other products used: Recollections cardstock, Hot Off The Press Tiny Words & Images Hot Off The Press Whimsical Words & Doodles, and Martha Stewart gold embossing powder for the stars.  Hero Arts stamped Happy Birthday image. Sad to say, even though I had the products (the embossing pad, powder and heat gun for months), this is the first time that I embossed and what a cool thing that is!! :)  Have to make a mental note to do that more often. The inside of the card was done on computer and decorated with Teacher's Sticker of the Day calendar.  Thanks for visiting me and I cannot wait to see what you come up with for the challenge.
