Thinking of you



Hi there!  Hope you all are having a great day.  It's another hot one where I live and it's becoming very unbearable late in the year :(.  I did something I haven't done in MONTHS - I played with my Gypsy!  I must admit I had to fumble a lot to get the hang of it again.  Today's card is going to be linked to the following challenges and all cuts were made using my Cricut:

**Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog - Challenge Me Monday #131 pink
**Bitten By The Bug 2 - tree
**Love to Create - Challenge #35 thinking of you
**The Old Back Porch - 52 Card Pickup week 39

The card is sized to fit an A2 envelope (seen above where the card is standing on).  The base of the card is actually a frame from the Cindy Loo cart with the tree.  I just welded two of the frames to make the base and used hide contour for the pieces I didn't want cut.  The hearts are from Baby Steps and the butterflies are from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart.  The phrase thinking of you is from Gypsy Wanderings.  I used the CB folder Branches and D'vine Swirls.

Some close ups:

 
 
I am hoping to get another card posted with the same theme - what can I say it was a loooong wait during my kids' after school activity yesterday so I got reacquainted with my Gypsy ;).  Once again, I do appreciate you stopping by!
