Thanks a Melon!

A little Melon and some ink . . .

= a lot of thanks!
The gorgeous pattern from the Elise cartridge.

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a spectacular weekend!  It is so hot here on the east coast, looking forward to some slightly cooler weather tomorrow!  

So sad I didn't make the MPS design team, but it was fun to try.  I so enjoyed visiting all the wonderful new blogs from everyone that posted!  Lot's of terrific inspiration!!  Congrats to the new DT members!

Here is a thank you card I made for a very thoughtful co-worker who brought me in some wonderful cookies!  I made this card entirely with my Imagine.  I just love the versatility of that fabulous machine!  All the patterned paper was created using the Elise cartridge.  It is so beautiful, I just had to post a close-up so you can see the wonderful pattern I chose for the card itself.  Isn't this just gorgeous?  This is one of my favorite pattern cartridges.  The shapes and the words were all cut from the Cricut "Just Because" Cards cartridge.  I haven't used this cartridge in a while and I forgot just how many great card ideas it has!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
