Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great week and its finally wednesday. I have so many things to catch up on this week. One of my dearest closet friend is getting married I'm so excited to be a part of this special moment of her life. :0)  I made this cute card for her which I will be posting sometime this week, but because I don't want her to see it, I will post it after the wedding. :0) Anywhoooo.... so I have great news to   announce.... I wanted to let you know that I was featured as the August Artist over at Cricutforbeginners.  Its so amazing how much God is so wonderful to his children.  Thank You God for all my blessings.  If you would like to check their blog please click here or you can scroll down to read their post. 

August’s Featured Artist
This month's Featured Artist is Catarina who has been scrapbooking for 10 years, and has delved into card marking just this past year! We just loved her beautiful “Fashionista” card and just had to share it with you.
Catarina is mother to her 5 year old son, Sean. He is in for a real treat – we can only imagine all of the beautiful cards Catarina will dream up for him! Catarina says she first bought her Cricut in February of 2011 and has become addicted to it. She loves everything the Cricut has to offer and the endless creativity it provides. And she really does love Cricut -- she owns an Expression, Create, Gypsy, Cuttlebug and Cake machine! She hopes to complete her collection with the Imagine and has already picked up 12 cartridges. Some of her favorite Cricut cartridges are Forever Young, Tie the Knot and Create a Critter.
For Catarina’s card, she used the ever popular Forever Young Cricut cartridge. If you haven’t worked with this cartridge before, it has a ton of darling shapes of fashion models. The models posed in every which way wearing dresses, skirts and pantsuits. Totally cute! In Catarina’s card, she used “Model 3” on page 26, which was cut at 3 ¼ inches.
The cardstock used for the dress on her card really catches my eye. I love the simplicity of the diagonal lines and it really stands out against the bold color of the purple cardstock. Some bling was added to the model’s purse and a satin ribbon ties the entire card together. Amazing work!!
You can learn more about Catarina and her beautiful projects by visiting her blog at As a thank you to Catarina for her awesome submission, we sent her the Wild Card Cricut cartridge, courtesy of Custom Crops!

Have a wonderful day!
