Let Your Dreams Take Flight

The back to school count down has begun! :-) There's only one person in the Schmitt household that is excited and I'll give you one guess who :-) I love my kids dearly but it will be nice to have time to myself during the day again. I've missed many challenges and I can't wait to get going again:-) My card for today is for the Crop Stop's challenge.

I used Nate's ABCs cartridge along with The Good Old Days Imagine cart to color in the layers. I am really beginning to enjoy using Cricut Craft Room with my older carts. I'm finding it is less difficult and time consuming coordinating colors and styles of card stock. I partially embossed the yellow layer with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and stamped the bottom portion with the perfect sentiment from PTI's Happy Trails set. I snipped off the "tails" on the kite and added some baker's twine for a little more texture. Thanks for stopping by! Have a creative day:-)


  1. Fabulous card! Love the embossed background that gives the impression of the wind blowing! Thanks for joining our CropStop Kite Challenge.

  2. What a pretty card! I love the kite and the swirly background. CCR has really helped me enjoy using my Cricut more as well. It's so easy now to set up layers and cut everything at one time.
    Thank you for sharing your pretty card! :)

  3. ooh, love the twine kite string! Thanks for playing the CropStop challenge! :)
