Just wanted to say…

Love You & Happy Birthday!

And hurry up and come home!! Okay, that part isn’t really there, but it’s what I was thinking.

This is the card I’ve made for my nephew, who lives WAY across the country in California. Eeek!

I was in a bit of a hurry trying to get this done in time to slip in the kids’ suitcases, but I really like the idea of this card. I can see me coming back to it and adding layers and a bit more dimension.

With the talk and reviews of the new Gel Pens going around the Circle Message Board, I decided to break out my very much neglected Cricut markers. Thanks Nadia!

Here’s my Expression in action~

I love that I just inserted the marker and my sentiments were drawn on rather than having to deal with piecing together all those letters. Yippee!

My finished card~

I used Word Bubbles for the bubble cut out at 4.6″ and Cricut Craft Room Basics for the font sized to fit.

I am loving how easy CCR makes it to use and size a font. It’s 1000 times easier than using my Gypsy.

I used~
Bella Blvd scraps, Kraft paper, Studio G Epoxy brad and Washi tape

Easy Peasy! With a little stitching and stapling my card is done.

Now I just need one more colorful addition to this card, and I’ll know he’ll love it.

If you guessed something green, you’d be right!
