No Cricut Thursday #8 (Late Night Addition)

A random thought: It is cheer leading season for me so I get home later than normal after the basketball games. I enjoy being with the girls, but getting home and having dinner ready (even if it is something as simple as mac and cheese) is so wonderful!!
Tonight I was talking with a coworker on the way out of the game and I find her spirit and courage to be amazing. She has had a hard two years and has come out of all her troubles with grace and a positive attitude. When I got home I wanted to make her a quick card to tell her just that.
I am in love with my Prima flowers so I quickly put some together with a button center and added them to the front of a card using one of the sentiments cards I had put together last night using the Pink By Design set, "Just Breathe". I used my Tim Holtz Swirls embossing folder and some fun shape scissors to add a little extra fun. A super simple card to tell an amazing person how amazing she is.

NOW: A Jacob update!
He took some girls camping! Belle, Charlotte and Barbi F. all went out into a crisp fall night to roast marshmallows, drink hot chocolate and have some cuddle time in the tent. It was great except, Belle was not really feeling it and her jealousy over Jacob's growing relationship with Charlotte was clearly getting to her. Was it so much that she will not get a rose this weekend? You'll have to wait and see as no rose was given out on this date.

You could however win some blog candy by leaving a comment here (about the card or Jacob as I love all comments!!) Clippy is giving way Stretch You Imagination if you leave at least 2 comments on the Jacob posts this week (over two means extra entries!) this is open to US and Aussie residents only please!
Join us tomorrow for a quick date update and things appear to be getting hot and heavy for Jacob and Marie Elise and Saturday for the me and Mickey's Birthday Blog Hop!


  1. I'm Canadian so I dont get to win :( but I just had to tell you how great the card is. And those flowers are amazing. Great colors:)

  2. First I would like to say that I Love your Card and the colors. Green and Purple are my favorite colors. Very Sweet of you to make your Co-Worker a Card. She is going to Love It. Now about Jacob, I have really been checking out the girls and trying to find which one I think is the best for Jacob. So I'm leaning toward Marie Elise or Charlotte. But as we know from the past Bachelors.Sometimes they choose the wrong one. Can't wait to see who he chooses. Thanks for Sharing your Pretty Card! :0)

  3. That's a very sweet card you made, and the sentiment is terrific! Love it. So they went camping! Cuddle time in the tent!? Oh boy, I hope you're supervising!--Pat N.

  4. Such a great card and it feels so good to make a card for someone who isn't expecting a random act of fabulousness. She will love it. LOVE that there is a 'tent scene' just like in the Twilight series. lol. So funny. Love her purple poncho - is she wearing it because Jacob has her shirt on? Lol. Wonder who he is going to give a rose to!

  5. That is so sweet of you to make a card for your friend I agree that it is so special to show someone that you are thinking of them.

    I am still rooting for Belle!!! LOL

  6. It is fantastic that you made a card to show your feelings to your coworker. That is very thoughtful of you!

    Go Charlotte! :)

  7. Beautiful card!! I LOVE the colors!!! How sweet that you keyed in on someone who really needed it!!

    So what's with Belle? I think she really needs to get over herself... If you're going to get jealous...don't compete with 24 other dolls!!!
