Thank You Card Using Stella Paper Packet and Cricut Artiste Collection

Hello to all my blogging and crafting friends.  I have been staying inside most of the week due to the extreme hot weather here in Southern CA.  I hope everyone is staying cool.  I tried to go bike riding early yesterday morning and I had a bike wreck.  Not sure how it happened.  I forgot how badly a fall can make you feel.  I ache all over; but I want to get this post done before resting. 

I created a Thank You card for my Mojo Monday card this week.  I am a little late in getting it on here.  I used CTMH Stella Paper Packet and a couple different stamp sets.  I used the new Cricut Artiste Collection stamps for the outside sentiment and the Cricut Artiste Cartridge for the sentiment accent.  I used the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection stamp set for the inside sentiment.  The cute little gnome and mushroom are from CTMH "Gnome Garden" which is retired now.  I love that stamp set and thought it would be cute on a Thank you card.

Front Sentiment - Cricut Artiste Collection Balloons

    1. Hi Carol, Thank you for stopping by and for your loving words of encouragement. I appreciate your support. Yes - falling is not something I want to do on a regular basis. :) It did shake me up quite a bit. You are the first person to mention it. I guess most people go straight for the card and don't read the post. :) Have a wonderful weekend Carol!! Hugs, Gloria

  12. Oh that's terrible, I am so sorry to hear about your accident on the bike! I really hope you are feeling better today. :) Hopefully the weather will cool off for us all here soon and the bike rides will be nice and pleasant. As for your card...I love what you've done with the Mojo Monday sketch. Gnomes are just the best, so I love that you've included them as well. :) Feel better ASAP!

    1. Hi Shirley-Anne, nice to hear from you again. I am on my way to recovery. I have a bruise half way down my leg and a lot of pain in my knee; but I am sure it will continue to improve over time. Yes, a lady and a man both stopped to help me. The lady stayed until my husband picked me up. They were very nice. Thanks for the lovely compliment and for visiting my blog. Have a fantastic weekend Shirley-Anne.
