Disney Piglet "Day Dreaming" ATC

I made this ATC for a swap I am in on the cricut MB..I chalked the background with some blue chalk to give it a sky look and then used some stickles to glitter the clouds, added some little flowers, put a pop dot behind Piglet's head for some dimension and made 2 layers of grass.

March 2009 ATC

This is the March ATC for the Cricut was to use gold and green, St. Patrick's Day theme.

I used this pearly green cardstock and stamped clovers with gold ink (although it doesn't look like it) and printed an irish prayer on vellum and inked the sides with gold, again can't really see it being gold..

An Irish Blessing:

May God give you...

For every storm, a rainbow

For every care, a promise

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer.

For every tear, a smile

February 2009 ATC

This is my idea for the February 2009 ATC swap on the cricut MB...

It was to use flowers and hearts with a love theme..I used some vellum and under the vellum I stamped with the following:

"Love Binds Everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14"

I had some troubles with the photo..
