"Artfully Sent" Is Here!

Helloooo crafty friends! I'm so excited because I just received the new CTMH "Artfully Sent" Cricut cartridge. I actually got it 2 days ago but am finally getting to really play with it today. Below is the first card I've made with it & I'm working on another, which I will post later when it's done, along with many more I'm sure. I love this cartridge & I think it's going to be great for busting out some quick cards when the need arises. I can't wait until they come out with the Gypsy update so I can link it to my Gypsy!

If you don't already have a CTMH consultant, I would like to recommend mine. Her name is Diana Larson & you can go directly to her CTMH store by clicking HERE. She is awesome! Just sayin'. Anyway, here's my card for today....

Never Forget....

*** Click HERE for the FCCB "Mix & Match" Challenge ***

Good morning, friends! Being that today is the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, I wanted to take a minute & acknowledge it in my teeny tiny little corner of the blog-o-verse. I tend to be pretty verbose, but today is one of those days when I reflect a little more & talk a little less. In my opinion, it's a day when images speak much louder than words, mainly because no words can express how we feel about such an unspeakable tragedy. So, all I'm going to say is God bless each & every one of you & may love & gratitude fill your heart, maybe just a little bit more today....
