MAG Challenge # 5, Cricut Circle November Monthly Challenge: Home Sweet Home

Hello Everyone,

MAG Challenge #5--Forever Young (p. 72 only) is upon us.  Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate it. When I saw what we had to prepare for the week's challenge this is what began floating around in my head (It also helped that the Cricut Circle Challenge wanted a home decor item-lol). I found this little purse at HL and I just added some white lacquer spray paint made a stencil and viola. A pencil/Pen holder, featuring a nice summer day. I will look at this to help me through the cold winter :).   I can not wait to see what you create. Now don't forget to have fun! Comments are welcome enjoy and GOD Bless. I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Emma's Throwback Thursday--Cricut-less

Hello Everyone,

I just want to thank you again for stopping by to peek at this card.  A challenge without the Cricut is truly a challenge, but I have seen some really nice cards on other blogs and so I realize that paper crafting without using the technical support of either the gypsy or the cricut is possible (lol).  I really like how this card turned out (Split Coast Stampers was my inspiration).  As always comments are welcome, enjoy and GOD bless.   I am entering this card into  the following challenge:
