You're a LIFESAVER! using Pack Your Bags and Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art

hello, friends!!

I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day. I spent most of my day in class. Not glamorous or romantic,  but necessary. Today will be spent in class as well, but hopefully I am going to get some crafting done this morning! I have to make my Hello Thursday projects and my layout for Thursday on Everyday Cricut. A blogger's work is never done ;-)

Today I have a card made using two cartridges, Pack Your Bags and Martha Stewart Birthday Cake cartridges. I just love the 'life saver' cut from Pack Your Bags! It is perfect for a thank you card for that person who saved your behind!


This card is made using kraft cardstock and Bo Bunny Double Dot patterned paper.
I cut 'you're a' using the Martha Stewart Birthday Cakes cartridge at 1". 'Life Saver' is cut out 3' at using Pack Your Bags.
The ribbon is from SU!.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

What a clever idea! Your card is adorable!

So cute! My mom used to call "Life guards" life-savers when I was little. English was her second language, and I got such a giggle out of her little mix-ups. Now I do it too (in Spanish) and recently called lentils "sequins" by accident!-Thanks for sharing the card, I'm sure no one else thought of all this crazyness when looking at it!

I suddenly had an idea to add a "lifesaver" candy to the ribbon when I saw the sentiment "You're a Lifesaver". Great card and I just love the ribbons. Do you tie them yourself?
