You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Christmas in July

Good day, everyone.

Today I have a card for 3 challenges.  For some reason I was thinking of a gingerbread house and decided to go for it.
Although I have the gingerbread lite cartridge I decided to use the Cricut Create a Critter 2 gingerbread house instead.  Both the house and gingerbread man were cut at 2 1/4".  I used clear glitter glue to add sparkle to the bowtie and to add 'sugar' to the gumdrops.

The 'happy holidays' stamp and the 'season's greetings' were from a bunch of little stamps my sister gave me when she retired from teaching.  I'm glad I looked through my stash.

The three challenges are:
Paper Play Sketches - Color challenge Yellow, Chocolate, and a deep green;
Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash - You're So Sweet

As always, make sure you visit these blogs to see the design team's efforts as well as the work of those entering the challenges.  It's a great way to get inspiration.
Have a great day.
Happy Creating!
Rae Ann
