Fourth of July!

I had hoped to do a better job of keeping up with a blog but time has gotten away from me again.  It's been a good month of card making even though many of my crafty friends have gone North for the summer.  With the heat waves across the country though, I doubt they are fairing much better than we are in Florida. 

One of my favorite completed cards is made from Graphic 45, one of their steampunk lines.  I love the look of this Victorian lady and thought that just the paper with some small embellishments was enough.
I've been having a great time this month learning new techniques from the Operation Write Home website as well as various items on YouTube.  There are so many things out there to explore!  It's just amazing.   I purchased the Close To My Heart Artiste cricut cartridge.  This cartridge has so many things on it, it will take ages to go through it all.  I had purchased some robot paper at Tuesday Morning a while back and thought the robot from this cartridge would be perfect to go with it.  What I like about the CTMH cartridges is they have stamps to coordinate with the cuts on the cricut as well as information about what size to cut.  I thought a general robot card would be great to send to a little boy for any occasion.  So here is how that card came out when I finished it:
I'll be experimenting more with the Artiste cartridge and coordinating stamps.  Hope you're having a great Fourth of July!
