Happy Birthday flower card made using the Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge.

Hello, friends!

How was your weekend? I had a very busy one. I had to finish stuff for Hello Thursday, put scrapbook pages actually in books, and made dividers for my cuttlebug folder drawer and went to Ikea with Joy. You would not think this would have taken all weekend, but it totally did! Oh well, I like I was pretty productive!

Today I am using an older cartridge, but a really good one, Cindy Loo! I actually met it's name sake ont he Cricut cruise. I love how PC names cartridges after employees!

The paper is from Papertrey Ink and the ribbon is Close to My Heart.
I cut the flower out at 4".
The stamp is from Papertrey Ink and I used my cuttlebug to make this banner with a Spellbinders die.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, my friends! I look forward to seeing you all back here tomorrow!

Have a truly MAGICIAL Monday!

Dividers for a Cuttlebug folder drawer? I think I need more information on that -- and maybe a photo!! I currently have a big pink binder -- but your solution may just be what I've been (unknowingly) needing -- LOL!

I'd like to know about your Cuttlebug folder drawer, too! I just have mine stored in a plastic tote right now, and that's not very organized.
I love the cards you've done the last two posts ~ so pretty, but simple to make and not too time-consuming.
I had a great weekend, too. I got to go to a rubberstamping expo, and of course, I spent waaaaaay too much money. But I got a lot of really great stuff!
Happy Monday!!

I love the card!! I got Cindy Loo not long ago ( I am behind the times:) I do love it!! I didn't know the carts were named after the employees that is great!
Joan I have lots of "rewarding" work you are more than welcome to do!! I have a very small craft room and I find it hard to organize.

Pretty Card. I don't have the Cindy Loo Cartridge. I'm going to have to check that out. I had a busy weekend to. Had to take my husband to the Emergency Room.(Bad Heart). Then yesterday had to take my 5 year old Grandson to the Emergency Room.(Spider Bite). So I have spent most all of my weekend at the hospital. Hope next week end I can just relax.:0)
