This is another card that came to me Friday or Saturday one.... I was excited when I started it... I still have one more card in my head that I can't wait to make.... then I will have to start saying my prayers and my thank yous for more card ideas..... When I am all blank and I want to make something.... I ask God for ideas when I say my prayers and then I tell Him thank you because I know that He will send me some.... when I learned to do that that is when my card ideas just started coming to me.... thank you so much for looking... Hugs ~~Jeannie

Shades of Pooh and Grey

I thought of this card yesterday at work... shared the idea with the one of the sweetest people that I know, Britney.... she got so excited that I got even more excited.... left work at 6pm... went to Hobby Lobby for the paper.... out to eat.... home to sleep....and I... who minds you loves to sleep late.... woke up at 6 am and started working on it.... then my blade was too dull for the thinner papers.... so my sweet husband Robby went off to buy groceries at Wal-Mart along with a blade for my Cricut.... I was too excited to wait...I cut all my thick paper cuts while he was gone and finished up when he got home.... it was just a fun card to make... to see the end results was exciting!... Thanks so much for looking... ~~Hugs Jeannie

My daughter Madison took the 1st part of her 4 part CPA (Certified Public Accountant) Exam a couple of weeks ago....she studied really really hard!!... Like 120 hours for it....and she made a 96 out of 99!!!!.... yes a 96 out of 99.... so all that studying paid off.... she is so excited and proud of herself... as are her dad and I!! ... her ability to apply her a-type personality self never ceases to amaze me.... I can't wait for her to get this in the mail.... Hope she loves it!... thanks for looking!! ~~Jeannie
"96" is cut @ 6 inches.
Graphically Speaking
"Life Is Good" cut @ 3 1/2 inches.

To get the shape since I don't have design studio I used the middle size "Magic Matter" around the 96 after I adhered it to the black paper... the red rectangle cut out with the red is... it is on the shift feature of the "Life is Good" cut... I used my paper cutter and my corner rounder to cut the black rectangle....
I adhered the red rectangle to the black one... then the matted 96 to that...and the "Life is Good" to that....laid all that upside down on white paper and went around it with my middles sized "magic matter"...cut it out twice in white ... the second white sheet is the inside of the card.
