Friend Card As Center Step Card Using Cricut Artiste and Art Philosophy Cartridges

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #52 - Red And Green Plus A Ribbon.

Hello.  I hope everyone is doing well and taking time to create!!  The weather has been beautiful here in Southern CA; which makes me feel a little guilty because so many are having horrible weather.  I hope everyone drives safe and stays warm wherever you are. 

This is the last week of my Mother's visit as she will be flying home on March 10th.  She has been here for almost 2 months and in some ways it seems like just yesterday that she arrived.  Part of me wants her to stay and part of me needs a break from so much responsibility of another person.  She has a great life in MO with family and friends there; so I know she wants to go home.  It just feels like we never have enough time together when she is here.

It's another fabulous week for Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge #52 - Theme Red and Green plus a Ribbon.  Our sponsors for this challenge are QKR Stampede.  Our Guest DT this week is Dayana Marin.  Visit her blog to see her beautiful creations.  If you would like to be considered as a Guest Designer; please add GDT behind your name when you enter our challenge. 

I chose QKR Stampede digi "Picking Flowers" for my image on this card.  I had a lot of fun with this card.  I wanted to punch the edges; but it almost broke my punch trying to punch through two layers of cardstock/paper.  The free top inside sentiment is from Hannelie Desert Diva blog and the bottom free inside sentiment is unknown from an Internet search.  Here is the link for tutorial for Center Step Card.
