Cruisin' on by...

I finally hobbled down to my craft/laundry room and worked on a card.  The hardest thing for me now is my eyesight.  I sustained a concussion and my right eye isn't focusing correctly so I get some double vision and when I move my head fast I get motion sick...yuk, BUT I got a card done!! Woohoo!  One of the challenges is for a clean and simple card so I had to restrain myself, dang!

This is another card that you could use for a masculine birthday.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Card is a 4 x 9 
  • Cartridge: Pack your bags-ship pg 58 (cut everything at 3 1/2")
  • K & Company print paper, Core'dinations Card stock
  • Black & White Stripe Bakers Twine
  • blue button on inside from Heidi Grace
  • sentiments done on computer
This card is being entered in the following challenges:
  1. CAS-ual Fridays CFC#13--The long & Short of it (clean & simple, embrace the space)
  2. Cricut 360 Ch #5 - Transportation
  3. Elizabeth Mae's - Challenge #2 Birthday  (thanks Karen for the heads up!)
Thanks for taking a look and for all the wonderful get well wishes.   It is SOOOOOOO nice to be creating again - even slowly!  HUGS to you ALL!
