"Never give up Hope" can be used in so many ways.  For the struggling teenager, the sick or the person struggling with every day affairs.  It is a phrase that I use quite often.
I used my computer to print "Never give up Hope" on white card stock.
Then I placed it on mint green Recollections card stock.
Added a Inkadinkadoo stamp set and some rhinestones from Michaels.

Spring Flowers

This is my first attempt at making a shaped card.  Thought a flower would be best since it is now Spring.
I used George and the Basic Shapes to cut the flowers.
I put lace behind the purple petals and placed them on the yellow card stock.
Then I looped some pink ribbon over each petal and placed a flower with a pearl in the center.

This was a fun Easter layout to do.  Easter egg hunts are always a lot of fun in our family since there are lots of kids.
I used polka dotted card stock from AC Moore.
I used Tear Drop, Nate's ABC's and George and the Basic Shapes Cricut cartridges.
The Easter Blessings is a digital printable from Paper Crafting World.
Flower, ribbon and gem butterflies are from Michaels.

Inspiration Card

This card was inspired by The Pink Elephant "Inspiration Photo" and Die Cuttin' Diva's Try a Sketch.  The white and gray card stock is Recollections.  Not sure where I got the yellow card stock.  The faux pearls are Recollections.  The stamp is Inkadinkado.  I used George and the Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge to cut the rectangles.  This was a fun challenge.
