Anniversary Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

DT Project for The Squirrel and The Fox - Challenge 63 - Love

Hi to all my wonderful followers.  I am trying to learn how to use my IMac; which I have had for almost a year now.  I need to go to classes; but haven't felt like doing it yet.  There are several things I can't figure out; but I will eventually.  I just find it easier to use my PC; but it keeps having issues; so I would love to be able to switch to this computer.  

It's time for another fabulous challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox - Challenge 63 - Love.  This one should be easy for all of you; and you have two weeks to enter your card.  Our sponsor this challenge is Doodle Pantry.  Be sure to check out there shop to see their awesome Digi Stamps.

I created an anniversary card for my daughter and her husband; using Doodle Pantry Digi Love Birdies Color Plus.  They are so cute.  I love having the choice of using a colored version; whenever I have paper to match. Most of the time the color version is better than my coloring.  LOL.  I hope you enjoy this card.
