Ethan's Banner

I made this Banner for my daughter to give to a friend of theirs a while ago for the birth of their son Ethan but never got a proper photo of it hanging on the wall - well here it is now in Ethan's bedroom.

The Banner was made mostly with my Cricut imagine and the Nursery tails cartridge and Lori's garden cartridge.

Thank you for passing by and looking and for any comments left.

Quick card

I couldn't sleep last night so i sat up making flowers till about 3am.  I wanted to use my new folder which i bought as i thought it would be a good way to make a quick card - so it made sense to use one of my flowers a bit of twinkle and voila! I am really pleased with the flowers i made and i can see that i will be using the folder and flowers in many different ways.

                     Here are a few more flowers that i sat up and made last night - so relaxing to do.

The folder i used is by Crafts too called Dotty Frame
the flower was hand made
and then i spray glued it and then covered it with Crystal Glamour Dust
Ribbon from stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges :
