Thinking of You Card Using Cricut Artistry Cartridge

Hello friends.  I hope you are having great weather wherever you are.  It has been very hot and humid in Southern CA for the past few weeks.  I have not had time to create much; as my son, Aaron and his family are here.  They were here for 5 nights; then left for 5 nights; and are back again.  They have been traveling for over a year now; raising money and church support all over USA; so they can go to Argentina as missionaries.  They hope to raise enough by Dec. 2016.  They will be gone for 4 yrs.  It will be very hard to not see them for 4 yrs.  

I have created 4 short videos for all of you Cricut lovers.  CTMH has a new Cricut Artistry Cartridge; which was released on August 1, 2015.  It has 700 images; which includes the alphabet and numbers.  It is a fabulous cartridge; and can be used for all types of crafting. Click here for my YouTube video link.  I hope you will find the time to watch my videos.  

I created this simple and easy card using the Cricut Artistry Cartridge and the August Stamp of the month. The August stamp of the month is only available in August.  The 3 frames on the stamp set match the dies on the Cricut Artistry cartridge.  It is $5 with a $50 purchase.  I will reimburse you $5 on your PayPal account for the stamp of the month; when you purchase any of the CTMH Cricut cartridges in August .
