Friend Card Using CTMH Chantilly Paper With Cricut Art Philosophy and Cricut Artiste Cartridges

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #58 -  Anything Goes For Spring Has Sprung

Hi all you wonderful crafters in blog land!!   I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!!  I bought a Mac computer and I'm trying to learn how to use it before getting rid of my Windows based PC.  I have been having so many problems with my current computer and it is only about 2 years old.  I had heard that a Mac was so much better; so I hope everyone is right.   It is a great machine; but it takes time to learn new things and sometimes I don't have the patience for it.  LOL!!  
 
I am excited that it is another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge #58 - Anything Goes For Spring Has Sprung.  Be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by the DT.  Our sponsors this week are Eureka Stamps and SK Digis.  Our Guest DT this week is Rachel Taylor.  Drop by her blog to see her beautiful creations.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer on Tammy's Scrapin Corner, just add GDT behind your name when you enter your creation.  We would love for you to take a chance.  
 
I decided this week to use one of the adorable Whoopsi Daisy images - Daisy - from the Daisy and Friends CD by Joanna Sheen.  I love this CD as it has a choice of colored images as well as plain ones so you can color them whatever you would like.  I have had it for several months and couldn't wait to use it.  The green matched perfectly with CTMH Chantilly paper pack.  I love the green and yellow together.  It has a touch of blue in it; but I chose to focus on the green and yellow only.  A tutorial for this "Side Step Card" by Norma is found here.  I changed mine with the smaller piece on the left side and made it 2 inches on one side and 4 inches on the other side.

 
Outside Sentiment - "Take Time To Smell The Flowers"
