Life is Good

With the Colors of ZOE
When I saw the challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart I
immediately thought of one of my downline who's motto is "Life Is Good"
With that in mind I made her a set of cards as a thank you for her
willingness to share with me everything she learned at Convention since 
I was unable to attend. I wanted to use the colors of ZOE for her cards
Canary, Sweet Leaf, Glacier
 Sweet Leaf, Sorbet, Whisper
Glacier, Sweet Leaf, Canary

NOTE: If you like polka dots, plaids, and herringbone prints
you will like the new ZOE paper pack featured in August.
Come back tomorrow to see some new cards made with the new 
ZOE paper pack, the new Artistry Cricut cartridge,  
and the August Stamp of the Month.

Life is a Highway With Wanderful

On the Highway Through Life
I just couldn't resist making some more Picture My Life cards
for this challenge at Heart 2 Heart. Using "The Authentic Life"
stamp set with Wanderful paper pack made this project fun and easy.
I just used my scraps and the stamped images for these PML cards
Now I'm set with my PML cards for that special "Life" event
that comes my way. The Black, Blue, and Flaxen colors are neutral
enough to go with any photos. Can't wait to have 
a special "Life" event on the Highway of Life.
