Cheerful Spring card for a friend!

Hey everyone!  Just a simple card to share today.  Simple is the best kind in the crazy month of May with all of the fun 'end-of-school' activities!

I used the George cartridge to make the card base, then welded 2 rounded corner rectangles (5.88w by 4.25h) together on my Gypsy.  Then I added a circle 'window' (3.33h) from the Birthday Bash cartridge. The scalloped circle is also from the Birthday Bash cartridge and was cut at 3.18 inches high.

I found the flower and the bee on Kate's ABCs cartridge - one of my favorite cartridges!  The bee (p.31) was cut at 2 inches.  There are two bees on this cut and I used the smaller one.  The flowers (p.27) were cut at 2.55 inches and 2.31 inches.

The beautiful papers are all from My Minds Eye.  

The sentiment is from my new Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set.  Bobby (Cricut Couple) suggested this fun sentiment when I was designing the set, and I loved it!

I tied a bow with some twine from American Crafts  . . .

and did a little pen stitching around the scalloped frame and around the sentiment.  I also used dimensional adhesive on the flowers and the bee.

Have a happy day!


  1. This Bee especially likes the Bee on the window card. You've inspired me to make a window card. I also posted a card with a Bee from Sentimentals cartridge today 5/15.

  15. Hi Kimberly, I saw this card a while back and really like it so I made myself a copy to make one later. I made a similar one but I wanted to let you know I will be hosting a challenge on the Cricut MB starting tomorrow and I am using your card as an example for the challenge to make a card with a window. I will also be posting a link to this post on your blog. I hope you don't mind Nana Donna
