Mother's Day card Using Imagine That "Pretty Petunias" with Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hello friends.  How is everyone doing?  I hope you are doing well.  I have been having a few rough weeks; but was finally able to create a card.  If I don't feel good; I use one of the pre-colored images by Imagine That Digis by Kris.  I can always come up with an idea; even when feeling bad. 

I am using Imagine That "Pretty Petunias" for this card.  I created this card for my mother; who is back in a nursing home again.  She really needs some encouragement.  She was home for a year, able to live alone with day help; and now she is back in the nursing home again; with a horrible leg wound that won't heal; plus she has to be on oxygen; due to a lot of fluid retention.  

Imagine That Digi's by Kris has a new Facebook Fan page; which I encourage you to join.  They are having their first challenge for "Spring"; which is why I chose this gorgeous colored digi to use.  Click on the blue link above; and request to join her page.  She has a couple freebies on there to help you get started.  
Kris is a fabulous artist and a very good friend of mine.  She took a chance on me for her Design Team "Sketches by Carly" several years ago (My first DT when I knew nothing).  Kris taught me everything I needed, to start using digis and so many new things.  She is an wonderful lady with awesome talent; as are her two daughters.  

Kris has a 30% coupon on her Facebook page; as she is celebrating 3 yrs. for Imagine That Digi's by Kris.  I love this image.  Look at that sweet Hummingbird and the gorgeous colors that Kris colored it with.  Sorry about the watermark in the middle of it; but there are people out there who copy cards that aren't watermarked and claim them as their own; or steal the digis from the artists who work hard to create them.  I am trying to do my part to keep that from happening.

  20. Love your pink dominated cards...Great design and execution. We are so blessed with your participation in our previous Challenge and would love to have you back for our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you the inspiration of God's Word from Habakkuk 2:3-4 and it says, " For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. “See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness---." Have an awesome week!
