Sending YOU sunshine card made using the Wild Card 2

 Hello, friends














To make the background paper I simply alternated stamping Juniper and Crystal blue ink. I am sad this stamp set is retiring because I feel like the possibilities of this one have not been discovered quite yet.







This week's prize is a Cricut E2 Machine! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 26th. 
 To win:
1) Follow this blog or subscribe via email.
2) Leave a comment under one or all posts this week for maximum chances. See HERE if you don't know how to leave a comment

It's -1 degree here in Michigan this morning so the sunshine card is much appreciated! I'm embarassed to ask this, but what actually is an svg file? I am not very computer savy as you can probably tell! Send some Texas warmth our way please!

Loved the way you used alternating colors and designs for the sun's rays. Great card chosen to bring good news about cutting SVG's with the Explore. Martha in Leonard, TX

Debbie (from Sugar Land) said...

Precious card today - and I'm so glad to see Provo Craft listen and change that policy - I think without the change the Explore would have been a bust. Now - it has a great chance!

Jen Rolfes said...

Diana said...
