Easel Card with a Drawered Box

Check out this card!  I got the directions from Sassy Lady's blog.  Thanks Shelia for another great idea and fantastic directions.  Since I don't have George or Ornamental Iron I made some changes to your file.  I'll try to upload my gypsy file later.  I used Gypsy Wanderings, SchoolBook and Sophie.

Letter Envy Contest

This is my entry for the Letter Envy Cricut Circle Magazine contest.  It is the cover of my daughter's 8th grade English project.  She had to design, write and edit a magazine related to something she enjoys.  Her topic was Christian Rock.  We used Letter Envy for the title, Easter2011 for the cross and 3 Bird's - Life's a Party for the guitars.  The letters were cut at 2.37, the cross was cut at 6.53 and the guitars were 5.85.  I used 3 shades of blue for the letters and the guitars and gray and cream for the cross.  And yes the teacher was impressed; she got a 100 on the project.
