A Light in My World

Designed by Jeannie Phillips - Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.
This card came to me today when I was reading my daily Bible reading... the verse was Luke 11:34 "Your eye is a lamp that provides light for you body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when it is bad, your body is filled with darkness..."... I had the world and the lantern in my head but just couldn't figure out how to lay it out on my card... then I took a nap...and as many or you know a nap is when cards come together in my head... and when I say the background cuts in my head I woke up!!... and couldn't wait to get my card on paper... this is a very easy quick card!... I so hope that you like it!!.. I love your comments they mean the world to me!!... more than you could imagine... Hugs, Jeannie

Give A Hoot
Heart shaped globe and its layer cut @ w 2.75 x h 2.36... I welded the lantern shadow blackout to the globe cut and to both cuts of the globe..... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 2 1/4 inches...On the Circut I would cut two extra shadow blackout globes in the color of each piece and glue them onto the globe.
Campin Out
Lanterns and lantern layers cut @ w 0.83 x h 1.64... I went back and cut an extra for the inside... you could add these before you cut with the duplicate feature... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 1/2 inches.
Frame behind the globe large one cut @ w 3.36 x h 3.18, smaller one cut @ w 3.08 x h 2.19...on the Cricut I would cut these at 2 1/4 inches and 3 1/4 inches... you will turn it sideways to put on your page.
"T" cut @ w 0.40 x h 0.70... you will have to unlink the width and height for this cut...on the Cricut I would cut this at 3/4 an inch.
Fabulous Finds
Bookplate found on the first row third purple button down and its shadow found on the second row and the third purple button down cut @ w 2.46 x h 1.0 ....on the Cricut I would cut this at
1 inch.

Hello Jeannie,

What a wonderful card!!!!
Who would have thought that your naps could be this inspirational....hmmmm I need to have me one of those naps....although I don't think that my boss would appreciate it if I did that.

Hmmmm maybe if I tell her that I am having a "Jeannie-inspired" nap then she will understand....believe me to come up with these wonderful cards...well I say.....Nap away =)

Great job on the card! I love the papers that you used and I especially love the world heart...they taught me in school that the world was round.....maybe we can convince everyone it should be heart shaped =) hahahahha

I can't wait to get a hold of these new have done a great job with Give a Hoot and Create a critter so far...I look forward to seeing what else you come up with.
