Love/Happiness Card Using Sweet Pea "Love Is In The Air", Cricut Artiste and Art Philosophy Cartridges

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I know it is cooler across the US; including here in Southern CA.  We are expecting rain on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday; if we are lucky.  We really  need the rain.  

I am so excited to share with you my card/invitation I created for three of my grandchildren. I sent it today; and can't wait for them to get it.  I have invited them and their mother, to come and visit us for a week in June.  My husband and I have tickets to fly to MO and when we return home; Jenny and her three kids are flying out with us.  They will be here for a week.  We were supposed to have two of the girls last year; but I was having some health challenges that prevented me from being able to take care of two very active teens.  They are already booked to fly out with us!  Yeah!  We are keeping it a secret until they receive this card that I created below.

I used this awesome digi from Sweet Pea "Love Is In The Air".  Isn't she adorable?  This is for their Facebook Group Progressive Challenge; which will end March 8th, 2015.  I received this image free; after buying their January image and entering it in the January Progressive Challenge.  I love their digis; so I was ecstatic to have another one to work with.

Using CTMH Seaside Paper, Cricut AP and Cricut Artiste Cartridges
Extra Fun Balloon is from Cricut A Child's Year

I used CTMH Seaside Paper for the image of ocean on right; 
as two children have never been to the ocean.
