Showers of blessing card made using the Cricut Lite Celebrate Flourishe cartridge

Hello, friends!! I hope you are all having great weeks! Anyone have a super fun weekend planned. Sadly, I do not. As a matter of fact lately I think I like the weeks days better than the weekends. How sad is that!

Anyway, today I have a card I made using another one of the Cricut Lite cartridges called Celebrate with Flourish. This cartridge is your one stop holiday stop. It is one of my favorites of the new releases.




I cut the sweet little umbrella(or brolly like my British husband calls it) at 3". I used the Basic Grey Kioshi line.



The stamp is from papertrey ink....how perfect is that sentiment!



I hope you all have fabulous weekends even if mine ends up being very boring ;-)

See you next week!!

Melanie,

What a great card!!! :) I am torn: I think Lacey Labels and Celebrate with Flourish are tied for first (out of the new releases)!

Were the rain drops a stamp, too?

Thanks so much & I hope you have a RELAXING weekend,

I'm not a fan of all the flourishes that PC has been coming out with. Not my style. :-(

I love the idea of the card though. Very cute. The stamp was just the perfect touch.

mary stuart said...

Love your card, Melanie!
Boring weekend! Thought you'd like that after the mad crush of new carts you've been creating for! Nothing to do would look real good after that!
We have a shower and a birthday party. It's supposed to be really hot and both are at a park, so no a/c!!
It'll be fun but HOT!

marie sierra

coachfans said...

Beautiful Brolly! I have only been making cards now for about 2 weeks, so I would like to learn how to add color around the edges of the sentiment. It adds extra character.

Ann said...

I don't know how you do it. Every day you come up with something nicer and better than the previous day! This is verry, verry pretty!

Melanie, you always make me want the carts but this is one is I want because of all the variety on it. As always love your card, button and bow--all put together beautifully.

yvette said...

You have made such awesome cards again!! The brolly is just fab!

Normally I respond to all your cards seperatly, but the last 3 weeks have been so hectic for me, I hardly have time to sit at the comp. My boyfriend found a cat-litter 3 weeks ago, and brought 2 little kittens home. I have been handraising them, and they are such cute little things. But they take up a lot of time!! Hopefully soon we find a good home for them, as they can't stay. We have 4 dogs, and 3 out of the 4 would like the kittens for breakfast :(

sucor said...

What a lovely card! The sentiment is perfect and I love that paper!

Amy said...

Oh this is a beautiful card Melanie! I wish I had an ounce of your bow tying ability - they are always perfectly pretty!
Thanks for your constant inspiration.

mary stuart said...

Love your brolly, Melanie!
